Amorphis – Live At Helsinki Ice Hall

Label: Nuclear Blast     release: 21 May 2021
This is exactly what we need right now, when we still don’t see a lot of gigs and festivals in the near future.

Even before actually listening to this Amorphis live album, I could be perfectly certain that it will be brilliant – because I was attending the show which was recorded, see report HERE. Therefore, it was enough to pay attention to the sound quality and whether they managed to capture the good mood in those 1,5 h – which they did successfully. Since I only have the digital promo, I can’t tell whether the Finnish announcements are translated somewhere somehow – if not, well, that would be the only tiny point of criticism.

Therefore “victory all along the line” and the full 10/10.

By the way, “Live At Helsinki Ice Hall” will be available as 2CD digipak and download/stream. The 2LP version of this show is exclusively available in the “Vinyl Collection 2006 – 2020” boxset, also out on May 21st.

reckless and merciless dictator, so KNEEL! In other words, editor-in-chief, translator, website and ad admin, "Jane of all trades" - - - addicted to books (everything between Lord Of The Rings & quantum physics) and music, mainly Metal made in Finland. Furthermore, there's painting, drawing, movies, theater... so you can expect some variety on this website too. MA Master of Arts, English and American studies & Media communication = completed two full studies parallel within 5 years; very proud of my achievement - a bit later in life thanks to a scholarship - as a working class girl in a highlyconservative-romancatholic nation...
