Finnish metal sextet Amorphis have undergone a few metamorphosis moments in their 17 year career, going from full-on death metalists to a darker folk metal entity, yet the resilient troupe remains undaunted. ECLIPSE is the outfit’s latest offering, a 10-track affair that features the band’s new lead singer as well as the band’s rediscovered experimentally metal side shining through on cuts like “House of Sleep” and “The Smoke”. Imagine Opeth (“Perkele”), Pink Floyd, and Paradise Lost jockeying for the remote control on your couch to get an idea of what to expect from these shape-shifting metal dudes who continuously push the envelope and put intriguing albums out that challenge metal’s conventions.
