Amorphis – Halo [2022]

Amorphis Halo Track List

Halo is the fourteenth studio album by Finnish heavy metal band Amorphis, released on February 11, 2022 via Atomic Fire Records. Halo is a themed disc filled with adventure stories about events that took place tens of thousands of years ago in the Far North during the Ice Age. The success of the album is largely due to the talent of the Swedish producer Jens Bogren, who masterfully selected thirteen final tracks from thirty songs offered to him by Amorphis. He took over the entire project from start to finish, which allowed the musicians to focus only on playing. As always, this project of the band did not go without cooperation with the famous songwriter and connoisseur of Kalevala Pekka Kainulainen. According to vocalist Tomi Joutsen, he has always been a passionate and prolific lyricist for Amorphis. All the complexity of translating ancient Finnish poetry into English and adapting it to the progressive rhythms of the group Pekka took over, starting with Silent Waters (2007). Halo was a more than worthy finale to the trilogy that began with Under The Red Cloud (2015) and continued with Queen Of Time (2018).
