Amorphis Just Dropped a Brand New Track “The Bee”
I’ve got a massive blind spot in my metal vocabulary for Amorphis: I have nothing against the band at all, I just never really went there. I’m aware there’s a chasm between fans who were into their earlier, more death metal and doom-centric material and the more melodic, progressive music they’ve been putting out recently… but that’s about as far as my knowledge goes.
But I’ll tell you this: I like Amorphis’s new song “The Bee” a whole lot! As stated above I’m not the most qualified to critique it against the band’s entire catalog, but it seems like it incorporates all the styles for which Amorphis have ever been known into one song. It’s heavy, it’s catchy, it’s epic, it’s got some doomy moments and some proggy passages… thumbs up emoji from this guy, although I’m sure plenty of old-school Amorphis fans will hate it anyway because that’s how these things work.
Queen of Time will be released on May 18th via Nuclear Blast; pre-order here.
