Amorphis - “Course of Fate”
This track is from their new release Skyforger. If you have been following the band since Eclipse when Tomi Joutsen joined as their new vocalist, you won’t notice drastic changes to their sound. The maintains the same style that Eclipse ushered in. The band retains the strong guitar melodies, death growls and smooth keyboards but this time they manage to fit them in a ‘pop metal’ format. And that’s not to say that Amorphis have watered down their sound, but they have managed to blend mainstream elements into a heavy and melodic sound, resulting in an album that’s instantly appealing. The solo in this song is one example of that.
