The stripped-back version of My Kantele is actually the one I prefer to the album version from Elegy, which is a reversal of my usual opinion in such matters. The rest of this EP is utterly flawless as well, the two cover songs both being better than the originals! And thanks to this EP for giving me the incentive to check out Kingston Wall.
My Kantele is a follow-up to Amorphis' excellent Elegy. Elegy was an album that worked as a culmination point between death metal and progressive metal, and opened all doors in the rock world for Amorphis.
