So Amorphis is going to release both a new album Under the Red Cloud and also a biography book about their history in the near future, but before that they play few summer festival gigs also here in Finland - but these ones aren't "ordinary kind of" gigs, because they're Tales from the Thousand Lakes-anniversary gigs (it's 20 years since it's release; as is known, Tales is one of their classic albums and also their final breakthrough). 

I had a chance to see one of these anniversary gigs at Tuska Open Air in Helsinki. It indeed was great and unique chance to witness Tales being entirely played live, even if I did think that the atmosphere of these songs could fit even better to a smaller club gig than to summerlike festival gig. Nevertheless also the visual side of the gig looked beautiful, suiting the music, as the classic eagle picture from the Black Winter Day-artwork was printed in the backdrop and also the big pyrotechnics were quite a cool. 

Of course the band has performed also these older songs from the early era several times with Tomi Joutsen, so even though the band played Tales in it's entirety from the beginning to the end, certain songs as "Joutsen-era versions" were already familiar to me. But First Doom, Forgotten Sunrise and To Father's Cabin were the ones that I heard for the first time sang by Tomi - and overall as live performs. The voice of Ville Tuomi is an essential part of the original To Father's Cabin, but in my opinion this live version sang by Tomi worked well in it's own way, too. Also Magic & Mayhem, In the Beginning and especially Drowned Maid were the highlights for me. 

Also the song choices in encore were picked from the albums of the early era, as they played Vulgar Necrolatry from The Karelian Isthmus-debut, Better Unborn and My Kantele from Elegy, and the atmospheric piano instrumental Folk of the North from Black Winter Day-EP was played as a last song. This kind of special gigs are always refreshing and great to witness, no doubt about it.

Wolverica's Profile Picture

Artist | Varied
A girl from cold and dark north. I like to roam in the nature with camera and enjoy it's reassuring effect, but then again I also believe that music is meant to be played loud and enjoy frequently live music as well.

I have been interested in painting since a child and camera came along in age of ten years; today these above-mentioned forms of art are equally important.
Nature has always been a close element to me, so it is one of my main sources for inspiration, while I'm also inspired by old myths related to nature and the fauna. I want to create sort of mystical atmosphere in my visual arts, so due to that mythology is an excellent source for inspiration. Music is as important source, of course. Also human mind and different feelings, as well as visuality and imagination.
I paint mainly with acrylics on canvas and I like to do really detailed works.

Birthday: 21st October
Horoscope: Libra
Interests & hobbies: nature and animals, music (bands, gigs and collecting CDs), art (visual arts, photography, writing), Finnish mythology and folklore, vintage stuff, cooking, travelling, life...


Band / music style: Amorphis (Finnish metal band with influences from progressive rock and folk music).
I like also Rush, Pink Floyd (two progressive rock bands), Kate Bush and Indica (Finnish band that plays some kind of poprock) a lot. In addition I listen to rock music in general, Finnish folk music bands, etc.
Animal: whooper swan, wolf, dogs, crane, fox
Season: the current one, as every season is inspiring in a way or another. But especially late spring.
