Finnish masters of melancholic progressive metal, AMORPHIS, recently played special shows in Helsinki, where they have performed a very special setlist with guest musicians and friends. Get full details on the show below.


These shows will be part of the new tour edition which is scheduled to be released on February 24th via Nuclear Blast. The package includes the entire album Under The Red Cloud with two bonus songs as well as the live tracks in Helsinki.

Today, (February 13th) the band unveils the first video to one of these live tracks. The video shows the song ‘Her Alone‘ feat. Anneke van Giersbergen, which is the last song of the bonus CD. You can watch the clip, below;

Anneke Van Giersbergen states: “I was honoured and stoked that AMORPHIS asked me to perform with them at this special event. I have been listening to their latest album “Under The Red Cloud” non-stop since it came out so you can imagine I said yes to the Amorphis-Under-the-Red-Cloud-800x800occasion wholeheartedly! Tomi is such an awesome singer and performer and I felt right at home singing with him. He and the band gave me full creative freedom to make their songs my own and do them justice with my vocal contribution.

“‘Evening with friends’ was a unique show that left warm feelings to all us who experienced it from and off the stage“, continues Esa. “We really wanted to have artists performing who’s music and talent touches us. So when Anneke was in Finland playing her previous acoustic show couple months earlier we asked her if she’s interested to perform with us. At the end of the day, it was a bit versus vice, I played couple songs with her at an acoustic show in Helsinki that took place same weekend with AMORPHIS event. When you hear her voice you recognise immediately that it’s Anneke. There are not many such talented singers around so we were really privileged to have her on board. ‘Her Alone’ is a track from the “Silent Waters” album that is very dramatic and big song. When Tomi and Anneke share the vocals it really made the song to another level.”

The band recently unveiled the trailer for the new tour edition. Watch it below;
