Recensione album

In melodic death metal and symphonic black metal, the contrast between extreme and non-extreme elements is a lot like the contrast between what jazz musicians call "inside" and "outside" playing. Some avant-garde jazz favors an inside/outside approach; some avant-garde jazz favors outside playing from start to finish — and similarly, whether a melodic death metal or symphonic black metal album makes greater use of extreme elements or greater use of non-extreme elements depends on the artist. Skyforger, it turns out, is a melodic death metal album that keeps the extreme elements to a bare minimum and is greatly influenced by progressive metal and power metal as well as folk metal. This late 2008/early 2009 recording isn't just slightly melodic — it is very melodic — and while Skyforger rocks aggressively much of the time, it is never flat-out vicious. Like a lot of melodic death metal albums, Skyforger offers a contrast between clean vocals and a deep Cookie Monster growl; the Cookie Monster, however, takes a back seat to the clean vocals this time. In fact, extreme elements take such a back seat to non-extreme elements on Skyforger that some headbangers will wonder if this 47-minute CD should even be called death metal. But then, Amorphis' willingness to try different things on different albums and their refusal to be pinned down stylistically are among their strong points. Jazz great Duke Ellington has often been quoted as saying that there are really only two types of music — good and bad — and while Skyforger is hardly ideal from the standpoint of a death metal purist, it is still an excellent metal album. Whether one describes this disc as melodic death metal or as a prog-metal/power metal/folk metal outing with some Cookie Monster growls, Amorphis should be proud of what they accomplish on Skyforger.

Grandi melodie

Gli amorphis hanno classe e si sente. Splendide melodie e chitarre sempre in evidenza. da avere!

Emozionante

Sicuramente gli Amorphis di quest'album non sono paragonabili quanto a forza bruta a quelli dei primi, ma il songwriting ha raggiunto livelli altissimi. Le melodie risuonano impietose per ore nella testa dopo ogni ascolto, il growl e il canto pulito creano un'alchimia avvincente, così come l'unione fra pianoforte e gli altri strumenti più propriamente "metal".

In soldoni questo è uno di quegli album di cui ti piace qualcosa di nuovo ad ogni ascolto, assolutamente consigliato. Emozionante

Lead guitarist Esa Holopainen and drummer Jan Rechberger formed the band Amorphis in Finland in 1990.

The demo was so successful in getting attention for the group that they had acquired a record deal and released an EP the same year. They next released their first full-length album, The Karelian Isthmus, in 1992. The following year, their early...
