return to Nuclear Blast! - 2005-04-20

2005-04-20 - Nuclear Blast is very proud to announce that Finnish rockers AMORPHIS are now officially signed to the label!<br><br>This is what guitar player Esa Holopainen states about the &quot;home-coming&quot;:<br><br>&quot; Last year was quite difficult for Amorphis, we went through another line-up change as we decided that it&#8217;s better if Mr. Koskinen leaves the band. We had problems with trying to promote our &raquo;Far From The Sun&laquo; album as we were working with partners who rather enjoyed nice cappucinos than would actually work.<br><br>Anyway, finding a new vocalist was tough, it was more difficult than we actually would have imagined. We actually thought about doing instrumental album when one of Mr. Koivusaari&#8217;s friend told about their singer Tomi who is really talented and would fit us. The day he came over we were all proved that Tomi Joutsen is next AMOPRHIS singer. We went through 'Against Widows', 'Alone' and few other songs including 'Sign From The North Side', which is from our debut album. This is the song we also do live again!<br><br>Beside changing vocalist we changed management and sat down think about how to continue from here. We allready composed songs for forthcoming album and started to work with vocals. We thought about different options and all agreed that it&#8217;s better if we stuck with basics and go back to were we once started. We have been really good friends with NUCLEAR BLAST dudes for over ten years and I remember talking with Markus at Summer Breeze festival over a year ago and he told that we should come back.<br><br>During the past years we have became really cynic with labels most of because 95% of all talk is bullshit and they give you promises that they can&#8217;t keep. We knew that we could always call up the NB guys with whatever matter and we knew how they work. Plus which is the most important thing that these guys are true fans of the music what they put out. I guess the honesty for the music what you release pays you back which has been the case for the NUCLEAR BLASTs success.<br><br>So, we are now ofiicially signed back to NUCLEAR BLAST and I have to say that it feels really good and is a great relief.<br>And for the people who wonder how AMORPHIS sounds today: It&#8217;s EPIC, HEAVY and MELODIC with a mixture of GROWLING VOCALS!!!<br><br>Shine on,<br>Esa &amp; Amorphis&quot;<br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=3"><u>AMORPHIS</u></a>&quot;
