Yeah "Tales From The Thousand Lakes" is amazing, But Silent Waters (To me) is just as good, there newest album.

I've gotten more in to them just recently, especially through the Silent Waters album, it's just amazing:)

Their guitar player, Esa Holopainen is an amazing songwriter.

Yeah Amorphis are top class. I'd have bought the new album just for the title track alone

Wow they are great! The singer looks like the korn's singer!

Silent Waters may just be my favourite song ever! And House of Sleep is awesome as well. I know the entire song on guitar ^^

hmm. Not really my sort of thing at all. I had high hopes when opening it but it all seemed a bit forced to me. I really disliked the singing mainly. Didn't fit the music in my opinion. sad.gif

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ub2vU6tm458&feature=related - I love the intro here

The bottom two is performed by their former vocalist Pasi Koskinen, who had a brighter voice then Tomi Joutsen, who joined after Pasi left in 2004.

Awesome band, I love it how they combine death metal with calm parts, beautiful melodies and clean vocals.
