Amorphis Working On New Album

2015 saw melancholic progressive metallers Amorphis release their 2015 studio album, “Under The Red Cloud” – an album which would soon top countless critics’ lists and reach great chart results all around the world (including a first ever entry in United Kingdom and Australia, as well as the band’s highest ever entries in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands and France). Following this success, the Finnish six-piece released their “Under The Red Cloud Tour Edition” in February 2017. The album included two bonus songs as well as live renditions of tracks performed during their “An Evening With Friends” shows at Juhlaviikot – Huvila.

Today is a day for good news for all Amorphis fans as the band announce that they are officially working on a new record! In fact, the pre-production process is already over and the majority of the recording has been done. The band commented that they have really taken their time on this record so that they could focus on adding in lots of little extras such as strings, flutes, orchestral arrangements and even choirs! In addition, this is the first time that listeners will be able to hear lyricist Pekka Kainulainen on the album as he contributes a speech in Finnish!

The band have confirmed that Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Katatonia, and many others) is once again in the producer’s seat for the upcoming record. More details to be announced soon, so stay tuned!

Dark Buddha Rising’s “II” Set To Drop Via Neurot Recordings This March

Prepare your mind, body, and the deepest recesses of your soul: the black gates that Dark Buddha Rising unlocked a decade ago with “I”, open further in 2018, as the band announce the “II” EP, due for release via Neurot Recordings on March 23rd, 2018. “II” continues to traverse spiritual planes, exposing a vortex with their sonic calls from beyond.

Sample new sounds with this immersive video below:

For ten years, the Finnish band has convened in the now-famous Wastement studio space, set below their home city of Tampere, Finland, to roil in the sounds of the underground, to meet dark spirits, to breathe in time with rhythmic pulses sent from the skies, the stars, and the very dirt around them.

On the surface, the band emits the blackest of psychedelia. Deep down, their sounds are forged in the blue fires of the ancients; exhalations of gods, goddesses and demons alike. Of this new offering, V. Ajomo notes, “To drain our sonic temple, we wanted to record the new material which was made for 2016 shows in order to proceed towards the unknown with open minds and hearts. After the cleansing, we initiated our chamber with ambient meditation and opened the portals of inspiration for our future work.”

“II” sees Dark Buddha Rising return to its purest incarnation: J.Rämänen on drums, P. Rämänen on bass, and V. Ajomo on guitar, J. Saarivuori on synths and M. Neuman on main vocals. “We have done a full cycle of the orbit and now is the time for gravitational slingshot towards the new dimensions in sound, deliverance and vision,” says Ajomo.

The EP’s A-side was recorded and mixed in Space Junk Studio by K.Nyyssönen and B-side was recorded in Wastement by Dark Buddha Rising and mixed by S. Tamminen.
