SINISTHRA (AMORPHIS) Brings The Low-Tuned Riffs On "Closely Guarded Distance"

Specifically Amorphis vocalist Tomi Joutsen.


Sinisthra, the band featuring Amorphis vocalist Tomi Joutsen, will release their first record in 15 years The Broad and Beaten Way on May 15. The band is now streaming the lengthy and low-tuned new single "Closely Guarded Distance" below, which they said is born of quite a few ideas over the years.

"'Closely Guarded Distance' is the centrepiece of the album and probably the hardest to digest of the whole lot. So we chose it as the first 'single.' It's some 13 minutes long, divided into three parts. The first phase is the courting, the second phase is the fulfillment and the final phase is aftermath. Musically, it's an amalgamation of several half- finished and half- discarded songs we had lying around. I think it represents what Sinisthra is about, with all our main ingredients neatly distilled into one song."
