Amorphis Premiere New Music Video “Amongst Stars” – Anneke Van Giersbergen Guests

Amorphis are celebrating the release of their thirteenth studio album “Queen Of Time” with the below debut of their new music video for “Amongst Stars“. The song and clip both feature a guest appearance from Anneke Van Giersbergen (Vuur, ex-The Gathering).

Explains Amorphis’ lead guitarist Esa Holopainen:

“‘Amongst Stars‘ turned out as one of the most solid songs on the album. The song itself was not the easiest one to work with.

We tried a lot of different variations during the pre-production and finally Jens‘ co-producer friend Per Aldeheim came up with these great vocal lines and idea for an duetto.

We have been privileged to work with Anneke before so it was pretty clear to ask her to help us out with the song. As everyone knows her voice is more than stunning and she is surrounded by incredibly positive aura.

As a result we have a really beautiful and catchy duetto where both singers do unbelievable work. We are extremely happy that Anneke was available during the time of our recordings and it was great to get her to the video as well. Lucky us.”

Commeents Anneke Van Giersbergen:

“When Amorphis asked me to participate in a song for their new album, I immediately said yes without having to listen to it first because I knew it would be good.

But when they sent it to me to start working on it and I was totally blown away! It‘s such a powerful and melodic song, I am proud to be part of it. The video for this song is equally epic.

The guys of Amorphis look and sound fantastic and I am truly happy to ride with them on this journey towards their new album.”

Eye Of Nix Premiere New Song “Wound And Scar” From Upcoming New Album “Black Somnia”

Seattle doom outfit Eye Of Nix premiere a new song entitled “Wound And Scar”, taken from their upcoming new album “Black Somnia”, which will see release through Scry Recordings on December 15.

Check out now “Wound And Scar” below.

Explains vocalist Joy Von Spain:

“In the song ‘Wound and Scar,’ we strove to evoke finality and resolution through repetitive bass-heavy rhythms accentuated with piano and distorted gong. The lyrics came from a dream about a woman brutally intent upon ending a cycle of fear imprinted on ancestors and passed down through DNA, halting a lineage of misery at any cost. I had been reading about an experiment in which two generations of mice were shown to react with anxiety when exposed to a new and innocuous scent (cherry blossoms), simply because their predecessors had been made to fear it.”
