Amorphis

Amorphis is a Finnish heavy metal band founded by Jan Rechberger, Tomi Koivusaari, and Esa Holopainen in 1990. Initially, the band was a death metal act, but on later albums they evolved into playing other genres, including heavy metal, progressive metal, and folk metal. They frequently use the Kalevala, the Epic Poem of Finland, as a source for their lyrics.
‘Skyforger’ was certified gold in Finland on July 7, 2010, making it the third Amorphis album in a row to do so.

‘Silent Waters’ marked the first time in the history of the band that an album was recorded with the same personnel as the previous one (‘Eclipse’). They were also both recorded at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki. ‘Silent Waters’ attained gold certification in Finland around five months after its release, having sold over 15,000 units.

The plant appearing on the front cover of the album “Tuonela” is called Rowan (Pihlaja in Finnish). They are native throughout the cool temperate regions of the northern hemisphere, with the highest species diversity in the mountains of western China and the Himalaya, where numerous apomictic microspecies occur.
