Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
On Silent Waters, Amorphis present a diverse sound ranging from pretty melodic passages to the occasional outburst reminiscent of their death metal roots. Fans of the darker sound of the band's early releases are likely to be dissatisfied, however, because even the eruptions of grunted vocals from Tomi Joutsen seems to be restrained somehow, as though the band aren't really feeling very death metal any more but feel obliged to keep these ingredients in their sound anyway when in some respects the album would be more cohesive if they left their past behind for good. The melodic, progressive side of the band's sound, on the other hand, is quite charming - but again, it'd be more charming if it didn't have those "hey, remember when we were a death metal act?" interruptions.

Second Amorphis peak

I think 13 years after their biggest masterwork - TFTTL - Amorphis has produced masterpiece again. It's called Silent Waters from 2007. Silent Waters continues the conception of the previous album Eclipse, but adds another higher level of completeness of the material in terms of songwriting and musicianship. Except this, the album is more gothic and less folk than its predecessor.

Silent Waters sets up superb standards in terms of structure. The album is well-arranged, dynamic, fascinating. You cannot get tired of it, especially because of its originality. The order of the songs is estimated perfectly and that allows the listener to follows the development of all the ideas as well as inception of the action, culmination and denouement!

The album flows precise and there aren't uninteresting moments, repetitions or clumsiness. Everywhere on the album the curiosity of yourself dare for more and gets it. The structure links are logical and completed in profound manner. Silent Waters keeps the listener in suspense from the beginning till the end. A must for all metal fans!
