AMORPHIS - Special Show At Olavinlinna Castle2013-11-28
Currently touring in Europe, the Finns Amorphis will perform a special show at the Olavinlinna Castle on July 13th, 2014 as part of the Savonlinna Opera Festival held in Savonlinna, Finland. The program for the Amorphis concert will include songs from their most recent album Circle and from the Eclipse album retelling the story of Kullervo.
The idea of inviting Amorphis came from Aulis Sallinen's Kullervo: "I asked myself what other front-line Finnish music views the male soulscape through the eyes of The Kalevala. I wanted something to offer an audience that may never before have visited Savonlinna during the Opera Festival."
The band's "albums drawing on the Finnish national epic, The Kalevala, and the ancient folk poetry of The Kanteletar in time influenced the signature Amorphis sound and won the band new fans all round the world. Amorphis could in fact be called the heavy ambassador for Finnish mythology."
