In anticipation of Under The Red Cloud, Amorphis have released the lyric video for the first single, “Death Of A King” (feat. Chrigel Glanzmann (Eluveitie, flute) and Martin Lopez (ex-Opeth, percussion)). Watch the clip below.

Guitarist and founding member Esa Holopainen comments: “It was a great honor to have such talented musicians appearing on “Death Of A King”. Each one of them puts his personality and character in the very right spot“.

“The album is titled Under The Red Cloud and the artwork is done by Valnoir Mortasonge,“ Esa Holopainen recently stated. “Valnoir is well known from his works for Laibach, Paradise Lost, Watain, Behemoth and many more.

Esa comments: “Under The Red Cloud is produced by Jens Bogren who did amazing job with the album. There's a lot's of elements in the songs but every note and element is in perfect harmony so that the result is fucking heavy and melodic. All I can say is that Under The Red Cloud will be in my personal Top 3 Amorphis albums that we've ever done.“

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their classic Tales From The Thousand Lakes, Amorphis will play at some European festivals this summer. In September, they will start touring in support of their upcoming release. Find the band’s live itinerary at this location.
