Eclipse is the seventh studio album by Finnish heavy metal band Amorphis. The lyrics are from a play based on the Kullervo legend (told in the Kalevala), written by Finnish poet and playwright Paavo Haavikko in 1982. Eclipse is also notable for being current vocalist Tomi Joutsen's debut with Amorphis following the departure of longtime singer Pasi Koskinen in 2005. It also marked the reintroduction of death growls into their music, albeit in limited quantity.

Circle (Amorphis album). 2013 studio album by Amorphis. On 16 January 2013 Amorphis revealed the second release date of the album to be 19 April 2013. On 24 January 2013 the band revealed the track listing and cover art for Circle.
For latest studio album Circle, the Finns surprised many by choosing to work with famed producer Peter Tägtgren at Abyss studios, a distinct change from their previous efforts. If there is one thing Tägtgren was able to do on the album, it was to improve Joutsen’s growled vocals, giving them some nuance and adding to the album’s overall heaviness. Such is the beauty of Amorphis. This album remains strong until the final note, the keys and the voice, the guitar and the drums surging and cresting like waves on a frigid Lapland sea. Amorphis are an institution, a rare gem from the old days that’s actually getting fresher and better as the years tick by.

Circle", the eleventh album from Finnish melancholic dark metal forerunners AMORPHIS will be released on April 19 via Nuclear Blast Records. Production and mixing duties for the follow-up to 2011's "The Beginning Of Times" were handled by HYPOCRISY and PAIN mastermind Peter Tägtgren, who has previously worked with such bands as CHILDREN OF BODOM, CELTIC FROST, IMMORTAL and DIMMU BORGIR. Joutsen added about the album title: "'Circle' represents integrity. Back in the days, when there was something special to talk about, wise men used to sit in circle. Not everyone was invited to join them.
