Seventy Below Crushing and beautiful. A stockpile of killer riffs. Mandatory for true death metal fans.

G Opsteegh EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
These guys got it and delivered on this album.
Not a big fan of their material after Tales from the Thousand Lakes.
In a way they refined their sound to a point they put the bands at the forefront of the scene to shame. Looking at you Entombed. Favorite track: Warriors Trial.

Héctor Hurtado Grooscors Vinyl purchased, code reedemed. This is the beginning of Amorphis' incredible music career. Back in those days they were expanding Death Metal frontiers with their unique Death/Doom style.

RiffThrovver Amorphis' debut full-length, this record is more steeped in traditional chunky Finnish death metal riffage. After their masterful Privilege of Evil EP, the band further developed that murky sound into a cohesive and more complete full-length. This album rules and is rife with everything I love about death metal - powerful riffs, sewer-swallowing vocals, and a dense atmosphere. Supreme Finnish death metal

xhrl_ The EP from 1991 is grittier, darker & faster than 1992's more melodic DM on the LP. On the EP there are brief overtones of melodic composition; while Amorphis peaks later on the LP, the EP remains a favourite for its lack of artifice; leaving a direct, visceral charge in the emotions of the DM. With a beautiful aesthetic, the LP of Amorphis moves fluidly, with disjointed song structures marked by distinctive riffs & bridges so as to make this DM very unique. Tritone riff salad! Superb. Favorite track: Exile Of The Sons Of Uisliu.

about

With feral ferocity Finland's Amorphis emerged from Scandinavia's renowned death metal scene in the early nineties as contenders for world domination. Their debut release The Karelian Isthmus is a crushing crusade of majestically moving atmospheric death metal. Top-notch Sunlight Studios production and fantastic cover artwork, courtesy of Miran Kim, dramatically realized the powerful medieval theme of the record. The Karelian Isthmus has been remastered, repackaged, and features six bonus tracks (the Privilege of Evil EP)!
