Finnish prog metallers from Amorphis have announced a brand new studio album called "Halo", through the newly-formed Atomic Fire Records on February 11, 2022.

Produced by Jens Bogren, Halo is desribed as "progressive, melodic, and quintessentially melancholic heavy masterwork".

Esa Holopainen says: "It really is a great feeling that we can still produce very decent music as a band. Perhaps a certain kind of self-criticism and long experience culminate in these latest albums.” To the songwriter himself, Halo sounds both familiar and different. “It is thoroughly recognisable Amorphis from beginning to end but the general atmosphere is a little bit heavier and more progressive and also organic compared to its predecessor".

Tomi Joutsen says: To me, Halo sounds a little more stripped down compared to 'Queen Of Time' and 'Under The Red Cloud'. However, don’t get me wrong: when a certain song needs to sound big, then it sounds very big.”

Renowned for their mythic story-telling, once again the lyrics have been supplied by lyricist and Kalevala expert Pekka Kainulainen.

"Halo is a loose themed record filled with adventurous tales about the mythical North tens of thousands of years ago", he explains. "The lyrics tell of an ancient time when man wandered to these abandoned boreal frontiers after the ice age. While describing the revival of a seminal culture in a world of new opportunities, I also try to reach the sempiternal forces of the human mind."
