Back in the Day

Back In The Day – Amorphis

 Back in 1994, Finland's Amorphis was the best new sound since distortion to this youngin. Even still I cant help but find my hand clenching into a claw as the song continues in the background. After abandoning their initial death metal approach shown in debut LP "The Karelian Isthmus", the band wasted no time exploring themselves further as song writers both musically and lyrically. "Black Winter Day" can be found on the 1994 release "Tales from the Thousand Lakes" a concept disc surrounding the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala. The EP for "Black Winter Day" would prove to be the launch pad for Amorphis' change in musical direction once again, this time donning a full time clean vocalist. Despite the bands many changes in sound, this video features Amorphis in what I believe is their finest era. I'd even nominate this epic single for a spot on Metal Sucks' Saturday Song To Get Stoned To… except my calendar is marked Saturday, everyday.
