I'm listening to Silent Waters as I write this. I love Amorphis. I am so happy that they are getting some much deservd recognition for thier hard work. They are technically perfect on stage and in the studio and it shows. Congrats to my Finnish heros!

They've had a tough ride.
They parted ways with their original singer in 2004, so essentially Amorphis as we know them today is relatively "a new" band.

Great to see they got it together and frankly, I don't miss the "old" Amorphis. This one I like ;)

Yeah WOLF, losing Pasi would have been huge (I'm a real fan of his vocals) but they did well to carry on. I prefer old Amorphis but I like the new stuff too, just a great band.
