RockmusicRaider Review - Amorphis - Under The Red Cloud - Album CoverWhat a refreshing breeze is reaching us from the Northern tundra wastelands! Under The Red Cloud from the Finnish metallers Amorphis clearly is one of most varied albums I have heard so far in 2015. And I have heard a few lately. Yet this one here kicks my writing neurons into motion really quickly.

Very close – for a few of the tracks at least – to the 2014 release of Insomnium, Amorphis have skillfully positioned themselves astride a few metal styles. Under The Red Cloud interchanges clear voice passages with growls, which adds this special and specific flavor to their tune. 

And they refuse to be pinned down by one genre or another.
