Amorphis Comments On Upcoming Album "The Beginning Of Times"
The upcoming album from Finland's Amorphis will be titled "The Beginning Of Times" and will see the light of day at the end of May. The album will also be preceded by the single "You I Need" in April. Cover artwork for the album can be viewed below, and the band also commented:
"The new album is the most challenging Amorphis album so far in terms of both music and lyrics. Its central character is the iconic hero of Finnish mythology, Väinämöinen, whose tale has been masterfully retold by lyricist Pekka Kainulainen. The Beginning Of Times was produced by the band; vocals were recorded under the guidance of Marco Hietala 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."
The track listing is as follows:
1. Battle For Light
3. My Enemy
4. You I Need
5. Song of the Sage
6. Three Words
9. On a Stranded Shore
11. Crack in a Stone
12. Beginning of Time
(digipack bonus) 13. Heart’s Song
