July 17, 2015
The official lyric video for the song "Death Of A King" from Finnish masters of melancholic metal AMORPHIS, can be seen below. The track, which features guest appearances by Chrigel Glanzmann (ELUVEITIE, flute) and Martin Lopez (ex-OPETH, percussion),is taken from the band's new album, "Under The Red Cloud", which will be released on September 4 via Nuclear Blast.
AMORPHIS guitarist and founding member Esa Holopainen comments: "It was a great honor to have such talented musicians appearing on 'Death Of A King'. Each one of them puts his personality and character in the very right spot."
"Under The Red Cloud" track listing:
01. Under The Red Cloud 02. The Four Wise Ones 03. Bad Blood 04. The Skull 05. Death Of A King 06. Sacrifice 07. Dark Path 08. Enemy At The Gates 09. Tree Of Ages 10. White Night
States Esa Holopainen: "The album is titled 'Under The Red Cloud' and the artwork is done by Valnoir Mortasonge. Valnoir is well known from his works for LAIBACH, PARADISE LOST, WATAIN, BEHEMOTH and many more. It was a great pleasure to work with him as he [captured] the lyrical topics really well. Colors and details describe the music perfectly."
He continues: "'Under The Red Cloud' is produced by Jens Bogren, who did amazing job with the album. There's a lot's of elements in the songs but every note and element is in perfect harmony so that the result is fucking heavy and melodic. All I can say is that 'Under The Red Cloud' will be in my personal Top 3 AMORPHIS albums that we've ever done."
The "Under The Red Cloud" touring cycle will kick off in September.
