AMORPHIS Streams "Wrong Direction" From Queen Of Time (Live At Tavastia 2021)

Feel the power of Finland.

Amorphis is now streaming "Wrong Way" from their upcoming live album, Queen Of Time (Live At Tavastia 2021) due out October 13. The album was filmed during a COVID-era livestream at the Tavastia Club in Helsinki, Finland.

"We shot a video for the song once back in the day when the Queen Of Time album was released originally," said Amorphis guitarist Esa Holopainen. "An interesting anecdote is that Tomi Joutsen and Pekka Kainulainen [known as the band's lyricist] both travelled to Norwegian Lapland to film the landscape shots. But in the end you could only see Pekka in the video. Poor Tomi had to travel and to spend a couple of days in Norway for nothing. The very nice video was directed by Sentenced drummer Vesa Ranta, but you can now also witness the live version of the track and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do."

"Firstly I thought it would feel like a long soundcheck, but quite contrary it felt pretty close to a real concert," added keyboardist Santeri "Sande" Kallio. "Of course, the band had to take the energy boost only from each other's playing and rely on the feelings what the songs bring in. Obviously, there was zero support nor energy help from an audience's side. Everybody probably agrees that nothing beats performing in front of a live audience, but I think we survived extremely well. One of the good sides was that everybody had to just concentrate on the music and playing 100% thus it simply was a one-shot chance."
