Under the Red Cloud is the 12th album from progressive rock/metal group Amorphis. Combining their recent Joutsen-era sound with hints of past works, like Elegy and Tales from the Thousand Lakes, it’s their strong album since 2009’s Skyforger. From the oriental folk sounds of “Death of a King” to the more light hearted “Sacrifice” and everything in between, each track is killer. Vocalist Tomi Joutsen sounds just as amazing as always with his gorgeous cleans and monstrous growls, but this time there’s a blacked tinge to his vocals adding yet another layer.
