Amorphis: The authorized Amorphis biography
The authorized Amorphis biography finally in an English translation. 412 pages, heavy duty hardcover jacket with golden foil stamping.
Long before Finnish heavy metal broke into international arenas, Amorphis were there to pave the way. Over the past 30 years Amorphis have sold hundreds of thousands of records and played to sold out concert houses and arenas worldwide.
Markus Laakso's biography paints a detailed portrait of the ascent of Amorphis, from the members' early days with teenage band projects to getting signed by Relapse and eventually filling stadiums on lengthy international tours. The story is recounted in a lively fashion not only by the band's current and past members but also by producers, managers and various experts in the fields of music and business whose paths have met with Amorphis over the years.
The book has been translated into English by Katri Mäkinen (The Devil's Cradle), and it is being published as a limited hardcover edition, followed by a mass market paperback later in 2022.
