AMORPHIS Releases Video For “Sacrifice”

Friday, 21st August 2015

Legendary Finnish metal outfit AMORPHIS have posted the video for “Sacrifice,” a song from their forthcoming new album, Under the Red Cloud. The album is due September 4 via Nuclear Blast.

States AMORPHIS guitarist Esa Holopainen: “‘Sacrifice’ is the second release from ‘Under The Red Cloud’ and it presents a bit more familiar AMORPHIS with catchy choruses and melodic touch.

“The video for ‘Sacrifice’ was shot in Helsinki and Hämeenlinna and follows the lyrical themes of the song.

“Like ‘Death Of A King’, ‘Sacrifice’ was pretty much [producer] Jens’s [Bogren] decision as a single track. The band finds it too difficult to pick up any single tracks. Haha!”

1. Under The Red Cloud
2. The Four Wise Ones
3. Bad Blood
4. The Skull
5. Death Of A King
6. Sacrifice
7. Dark Path
8. Enemy At The Gates

10. White Night
Bonus tracks (digipak & 2LP):

“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.“
