Esa Holopainen of AMORPHIS Talks Wacken Open Air, New Album & “Tales From a Thousand Lakes” Anniversary Tour

About the new album's lyrics: "We are living in unsure times and nobody knows what's going to happen. If we keep living as we are, we are going to face very apocalyptic times."

Legendary Finish act Amorphis is gearing up to release their thirteenth full-length Under the Red Cloud via Nuclear Blast Records on 4th September. Leading up to the release, the band released their first single titled “Death of a King”, which sounds pretty damn good if you ask me.

I caught up with founding member Esa Holopainen to tell us more about their upcoming record, performing at Wacken Open Air, celebrating 20 years of Tales From A Thousand Lakes and streaming.

I started this website in 2011 because I always had a burning passion of sharing music and keeping people informed about what's going on in the metal and rock worlds. If I am not sitting in a dark room in front of a computer, listening to some obscure music (or Whitesnake), then I am usually found at a concert or a festival interviewing bands (or drinking beer).
