“The album is titled Under The Red Cloud and the artwork was done by Valnoir Mortasonge,“ guitarist Esa Holopainen stated. “Valnoir is well known from his works for LAIBACH, PARADISE LOST, WATAIN, BEHEMOTH and many more. It was a great pleasure to work with him as he captured the lyrical topics really well. Colors and details describe the music perfectly.“

Esa continues: “Under The Red Cloud is produced by Jens Bogren who did amazing job with the album. There’s a lot’s of elements in the songs but every note and element is in perfect harmony so that the result is fucking heavy and melodic. All I can say is that Under The Red Cloud will be in my personal Top 3 AMORPHIS albums that we’ve ever done.“
