Amorphis - Skyforger 2-LP (Clear/Black/Orange Splatter vinyl)
Amorphis is a strange band that I have enjoyed immensely. Yes, I love the "new Amorphis" much more than the previous full blown death metal Amorphis such as The Karelian Isthmus, etc. Why? One reason: Tomi Jousten. This man has some of the most wondrous pipes I have ever heard. His work on Eclipse and Silent Waters is impressive and I became a huge fan due to him. Skyforger takes Silent Waters to a consistent pattern with catchy hooks, catchy vocals, catchy solos...you get the idea, hopefully.
