Amorphis released Halo, their 14th album, in February of this year. After that Finnish band set their sights on a headlining North American tour with Sylvaine and Hoaxed. The 23-date run through the U.S. and Canada is coming to a close. We caught up with them in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Amorphis, Finnish metal band, was formed formed in 1990. The band has played in various styles of metal music, currently the band’s style is described as progressive / melodic metal band. To support album Halo, Amorphis did stop in Vancouver BC, Canada as part of North America tour 2022. As the main band, Amorphis led the crowd into an great metal music atmosphere, accompanied by audience applause, ovations and dancing / moshpit.
Norwegian multi-instrumentalist Sylvaine, the one woman multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, and composer born Kathrine Shepard, engages listeners with Ambient Post-Metal music. As she says, “Sylvaine serves as an emotional catharsis, leading me on a quest to explore profound sensations and concerns within me, sometimes dealing with questions where the answers seem vague, empty or absent. This project is a way of processing every aspect of life, allowing me to deal with matters that otherwise would be suppressed…” Sylvaine band is supporting Amorphis “Halo” North American Tour 2022.

Finland’s metal legends AMORPHIS will kick off their long-awaited North American tour next month! The journey will commence on April 13th in New York City and make its way through nearly two dozen cities, coming to a close on May 12th in Baltimore. Support will be provided by Uada, Sylvaine, and Hoaxed. See all confirmed dates below.
AMORPHIS will be touring in support of their Halo full-length, released in February through Atomic Fire Records. Thirty-one years after their inception, AMORPHIS still proves to be the musical fountain of youth, an extraordinary band constantly reinventing itself without abandoning its mystical roots. With Halo, they deliver an astonishing album that deserves to be played everywhere, transcending the realms of metal and rock by its sheer profoundness and musicality.
The vibrant, lively, and touching beauty that is Halo highlights their musical and storytelling mastership on a once again soaring level: It’s a progressive, melodic, and quintessentially melancholic heavy metal masterwork plucked from the fickle void of inspiration by original guitarists Esa Holopainen and Tomi Koivusaari, bassist Olli-Pekka Laine, drummer Jan Rechberger, longtime keyboardist Santeri Kallio, vocalist Tomi Joutsen, the band’s long-standing lyrical consciousness, Pekka Kainulainen, and a selected group of world class audio professionals led by renowned Swedish producer Jens Bogren. Considering the band’s prolonged journey in the forefront of innovative metal music, it’s difficult to grasp how AMORPHIS manages to raise the proverbial bar time and time again, presenting a more than worthy finale to the trilogy begun with 2015’s Under The Red Cloud followed by 2018’s Queen Of Time.
