Immerse yourself in a musical phenomenon that is second to none: The 30th anniversary of AMORPHIS‘ landmark album “Tales From The Thousand Lakes” is celebrated with a live recording that sets new standards in terms of brilliance and intensity. This unique release, available on Blu-ray+CD and vinyl, was recorded at the iconic Tavastia Club in Helsinki, Finland, in chronological order. Available from July 12, 2024 via Reigning Phoenix Music (RPM), this release manifests AMORPHIS‘ unparalleled dynamism and artistic uniqueness. Rarely has the raw power and emotional depth of a live performance been captured so authentically as on this sonic memento and extraordinary concert film.

Get in the mood for the upcoming “Tales…” celebrations, and watch the ‘Drowned Maid’ live video, which is also part of the forthcoming Blu-ray, now:

“‘Drowned Maid’ is classic ’90s crossover AMORPHIS. Retrospectively, sporting primitive keyboards and sound effects, the marriage of doomy death metal and folk-prog somehow does the trick,” recalls bassist Olli-Pekka Laine“This song was a live favourite back then, and it’s still a pleasure to play it to this day!”
