Bio: Amorphis

There is power in a name, as ancient wisdom claims. And sometimes a prophecy. It was a moment of rare foresight when guitarist Esa Holopainen came up with a name for his new band: Amorphis. Derived from "amorphous" (without determinate form, shapeless), the choice would subsequently prove more apt than anyone could have imagined at the time. It was the fall of 1990, and the band's two founding members, Esa and drummer Jan Rechberger, had recently joined forces with guitarist/vocalist Tomi Koivusaari and bassist Olli-Pekka "Oppu" Laine to leave their mark on the emerging Finnish death metal scene, only to transcend it by far and set their sights on new horizons before that scene even reached the surface of public awareness. From the outset, Amorphis were determined to follow no vision but their own. Asked a few months after the band's conception whether Amorphis would ever change style if some new trend came along, Esa answered: "We'll change our style only if we manage to create something ourselves." A programmatic statement for a band that would go on to reinvent itself with every new album, continuously challenge listeners to forget all their preconceptions about music, and, through all ups and downs, never bow to compromise.

 

In August 2007, the band released its eighth album. Silent Waters draws again on the Kalevala for inspiration, recounting the tale of Lemmink�inen's hunt for the Swan of Tuonela. Unlike earlier Amorphis records, which often differed radically from one to the next, Eclipse and Silent Waters mostly share same musical ingredients. Nevertheless each of the two has a distinct atmosphere of its own, gracefully captured in the outstanding cover artwork by renowned US artist Travis Smith. Both went gold in Finland, a feat not yet accomplished by any Amorphis album of the pre-Tomi Joutsen era, and won the band a host of new fans around the globe. The remainder of 2007 was spent on the road in northern and central Europe as well as Russia and Japan, and touring continues throughout 2008. With their strongest line-up ever, Amorphis are ready to conquer ever new ground - never confining their style to any definite shape, yet always instantly recognizable, always true to their own vision, and always unique.
