2005-12-07 - The new AMORPHIS album, &raquo;Eclipse&laquo;, is scheduled for release on February 17, 2006 on Nuclear Blast Records. The first single, 'House of Sleep', will be released January 4, 2006.<br><br>Introducing new vocalist Tomi Joutsen (SINISTHRA), AMORPHIS' seventh full-length release in their 15-year career marks a fresh start for the Finnish band. Thematically, however, the group has come full circle, returning once more to the subject of the &quot;Kalevala&quot;, the Finnish national epic that provided the inspiration for the classic &raquo;Tales From The Thousand Lakes&laquo;.<br><br>&raquo;Eclipse&laquo; tells the tale of Kullervo, the ill-fated &quot;Kalevala&quot; hero whose tragic childhood and ensuing struggle for a place in society result in despair, evil deeds and ultimate self-destruction. The lyrics are adapted from Kullervo's &quot;Story&quot; (1982, transl. Anselm Hollo), a play by Paavo Haavikko (b. 1931), one of Finland's most esteemed contemporary poets. Matching the dramatic twists and turns of the Kullervo saga, AMORPHIS' music evokes an encompassing range of emotions unmatched by any of their previous albums. From the surprising tenderness of the piano-dominated 'House of Sleep', which was chosen as the first single, to the unbridled fury of 'Perkele (The God of Fire)', the band intrepidly set out to explore a more diverse territory than ever on their eternal quest for the perfect melody. And be there no doubt about it: the growls are back with a vengeance!<br><br>The cover artwork for &raquo;Eclipse&laquo; was created by Travis Smith, who is renowned for his collaborations with OPETH, ANATHEMA, KATATONIA, ICED EARTH and numerous others.<br><br>The first pressing of &quot;Eclipse&quot; will be a limited digipack edition featuring the bonus track 'Stonewoman'<br><br>&raquo;Eclipse&laquo; track listing:<br>01. Two Moons<br>02. House of Sleep<br>03. Leaves Scar <br>04. Born from Fire <br>05. Under a Soil and Black Stone <br>06. Perkele (The God of Fire) <br>07. The Smoke <br>08. Same Flesh <br>09.
