AMORPHIS – reveal cover + album details! - 2011-03-01 08:00

2011-03-01 08:00 - Kalevala Day news from AMORPHIS!

In honour of Kalevala Day, AMORPHIS has announced the name and track listing of the upcoming album, due for release on May 25, 2011. In April, the band will offer a first glimpse of the new material by releasing the single „You I Need“.

The central character of the new songs is the iconic hero of Finnish mythology, Väinämöinen, whose tale has been masterfully retold by lyricist Pekka Kainulainen. Titled „The Beginning Of Times“, the new album is AMORPHIS' most challenging release so far in terms of both music and lyrics. It comprises 12 songs with a total length of 54 minutes. In addition, the first edition digipack will include the bonus track „Heart's Song“.

„The Beginning Of Times“ was produced by the band; vocals were recorded under the guidance of Marco Hietala (NIGHTWISH, TAROT) in his home studio in Kuopio. Like its predecessors, the album was mixed by Mikko Karmila. Its cover artwork shows Travis Smith's magnificent interpretation of the mythological birth of the world from a goldeneye's egg.

In June, Amorphis will embark on the extensive „The Beginning Of Times“ tour, which is scheduled to continue through 2012.
