“Far From The Sun” by Amorphis

Artist: Amorphis
Title: “Far From The Sun”
Label: Nuclear Blast Records

Style: Heavy Metal

As many fans probably know the band takes their name from the word “amorphous” which means something that holds no shape or form.

With many other Finnish bands delivering blistering Power Metal nowadays I felt Amorphis was showing that they no longer need to press that course. It’s time for them to influence future generation of Metal fans.

King Blues Club seems to be getting every single metal act that is on the road. It’s pretty interesting touring nowadays. I think I have been to this venue over a dozen times to cover shows and it does not seem to have a slow down yet. Always a good thing to have one venue at least you can trust to bring you the latest and greatest in Heavy Metal performances.
