Immerse yourself in a musical phenomenon that is second to none: The 30th anniversary of Amorphis' landmark album, Tales From The Thousand Lakes, is celebrated with a live recording that sets new standards in terms of brilliance and intensity.

This unique release, available on Blu-ray+CD and vinyl, was recorded at the iconic Tavastia Club in Helsinki, Finland, in chronological order. Available from July 12 via Reigning Phoenix Music (RPM), this release manifests Amorphis' unparalleled dynamism and artistic uniqueness. Rarely has the raw power and emotional depth of a live performance been captured so authentically as on this sonic memento and extraordinary concert film.

Get in the mood for the upcoming "Tales..." celebrations, and watch the "Drowned Maid" live video below, which is also part of the forthcoming Blu-ray.

"'Drowned Maid' is classic '90s crossover Amorphis. Retrospectively, sporting primitive keyboards and sound effects, the marriage of doomy death metal and folk-prog somehow does the trick," recalls bassist Olli-Pekka Laine. "This song was a live favourite back then, and it's still a pleasure to play it to this day!"

Amorphis will return to North America this fall on a co-headlining tour with their comrades in Dark Tranquillity. The journey, which will hit over two dozen cities, will commence on September 3 in Richmond, Virginia and closes on October 6 in New York City. Support will be provided by Fires In The Distance.

Amorphis comments, “We are more than excited to announce this tour with our brothers from Sweden, Dark Tranquillity. It’s been a while, and we certainly miss our North American fans. It will be a one-of-a-kind Scandinavian death metal package with both bands performing in a headliner status every night. We'll blast through the continent like a storm; so see you all there and let’s have a metal night to remember.”
