AMORPHIS reveal 3D art video for ‘Northwards’ + new album “Halo” is out today!

The day has finally come and Finland’s metal legends AMORPHIS have released their new album “Halo“.
After receiving raving reviews from all over the world and being voted to #1 of the soundchecks of leading metal outlets like Metal Hammer (D), Rock Hard (D), Legacy (D), Spark (CZ) and (D), the band’s stunning 14th studio album is finally available on CD, 2LP vinyl, cassette and collector’s boxset and transcends the realms of metal and rock with its sheer profoundness and musicality. Considering the band’s three-decade journey at the forefront of innovative metal music, it’s difficult to comprehend how AMORPHIS manages to raise the proverbial bar time and time again, presenting a more than worthy finale to the trilogy that began with 2015’s “Under the Red Cloud” followed by 2018’s “Queen of Time.

To celebrate the release of “Halo” today, the Finns have unveiled a 3D art video for their album opener ‘Northwards‘ which showcases the diversity and especially the progressive elements of the new record. The video was animated by the band’s cover artwork designer himself, Valnoir for Metastazis.
