Yet today, they provide another look behind the scenes of the recording with Jens Bogren and how the guitars and bass tracks were produced.

Guitarist Esa Holopainen comments: “First I thought it would be a pretty natural continuation to ‘Queen Of Time”, but now as we heard the album, it definitely has a different touch in there. If I listen to the songs now, I think it’s slightly heavier in some parts – much heavier! – but it still has all those AMORPHIS elements in there. But I guess it will surprise people.”
