AMORPHIS
MAGIC & MAYHEM – TALES FROM THE EARLY YEARS
NUCLEAR BLAST

To commemorate their 20th anniversary, Finnish metal veterans Amorphis have gone back into their vast catalog to re-treat some of their older material on the long-running unit’s latest 13-track excursion MAGIC & MAYHEM – TALES FROM THE EARLY YEARS. Being held in high regard as one of European metal’s elite acts, Amorphis does an admirable job of upgrading tunes from their first three albums to match modern standards, though a haphazard cover of “Light My Fire” by The Doors does the band no favors and just as easily could have been left off the disc. Nonetheless, this release provides a grandiose revisit through a storied band’s career for both ardent fans that miss the band’s former style and inquiring minds wondering what all the fuss is over alike.
