»Halo«, the upcoming, highly-anticipated opus of Finnish melancholic progressive metallers AMORPHIS, will hit the shelves on February 11th, 2022 via Atomic Fire. With its release being only about five weeks away, the group have shared the second instalment of their accompanying studio documentary via YouTube today.

He comments: “There’s a couple of opinions from Jens’ [Bogren; producer] side that it’s more melodic but for me it’s also much heavier than previous AMORPHIS albums, at least a few. It’s definitely more guitar driven, the guitars are in a main role on this album. There’s a few songs where the keyboards are more present, like ‘The Moon’ and ‘Halo’, but mostly it’s super massive!”

Once again adorned by artwork provided by Valnoir (ALCEST, PARADISE LOST etc.), »Halo« was recorded, produced and mixed by Jens Bogren (Fascination Street Studios) while mastering duties were handled by Tony Lindgren.
