Amorphis have released Live At Helsinki Ice Hall, a concert they performed in December of 2019 in multiple formats. In addition, they’ve also released Vinyl Collection 2006-2020, which contains the 2LP version of Live At Helsinki Ice Hall.

Tomi Koivusaari states:

“Helsinki Ice Hall, what can I say … the very same venue where we used to see bands like Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Metallica, and many, many more back in the ’80s when we were kids … I’m sure we all dreamed about playing there someday in our hometown, Helsinki, where it all started with Amorphis 30 years ago. So, I’d say we had a special feeling at that gig, the last one of the tour in Finland for that year.

I guess this recording is a very honest picture of us playing live; nothing is fixed afterward, except mightily mixed and mastered, of course. When I listened to it a while ago, I realized how much I miss playing live. And yet we have no idea when it will be possible next, in this crazy situation with COVID and all … So, stay healthy, take care, and shine on you all; see you hopefully soon on tour.”
