Death, Black, Doom and Gothic Metal band infoA - Z
AMORPHIS

Great Finnish experimentation at its best. A band that has gone through quite a few changes and managed to stay true to the real metal and leave us some of the best albums in the history of modern music. Death-folk-doom and some progressive 70's influence thrown in lately. Excellent musicanship, mighty keyboards, amazing vocals both clean and growly, although the latter are steadily vanishing nowadays...
