Amorphis - The Four Wise Ones

Monday, time to see what's got played during normal categories during the "Hardrock Evening" that when off at the Twelfth Night, 5th of January.

The Bonus tune we played yesterday, to they we dust of the first one.

1. A Band That Should Have Been Bigger:
2. Highfaluting
3. Best Right Now:
4. Twin Guitars:
5. Best Textstrophe:
6. It Swings:
7. After Party:
8. Bonus

This was pretty hard one to set, what preferences should I choose. Well my first idea was to pick something fresh, a newcomer that have everything in the way to become that rising star that everyone dreams off. But during the time i changed my mind and went through the record collection to see what I could find. Quite immediately I found the Canadian thrash metal band ANNIHILATOR, they were founded in 1984, has released sixteen studio albums and not been given the attention and respect as they should have been. An excellent chose for category 1. "A Band That Should Have Been Bigger". I choosed "Alison Hell" taken from the debut album "Alice in Hell", released April 17, 1989.

VLTIMAS "Praevalidus" - Chief Rebel (Never heard this one before, cool)
TESTAMENT "Jun-Jun" - Holm (Hard and heavy, they should be bigger)
NEVERMORE "This Godless Endeavor" - P.Öbrink (Hell yeah)
AMORPHIS "Winters Sleep" - Hellan (Great choice, they should be bigger)
CARACH ANGREN "When Crows Tick On Windows" - M. Öbrink (Cool band with great Videos)
TRIVIUM "The Wretchedness Inside" - Eriksdotter ((Hell yeah)
AMORPHIS "The Four Wise Ones" - Sandström (Great choice, they should be bigger)
HATEWORK "In The Hands Of Deamons" - Jens (Great choice, support your locals)
ANNIHILATOR "Alison Hell" - Stones

So over this week I'll present all the categories in the order of recording, Today = "Bands That Should Have Been Bigger", Tuesday = "Highfaluting", did one extra for yesterday as the "Bonus" tune, that got added. The rest of this week I will mix mine with the other participant's choices, so here we go.

Today we pick the pretty obvious band on the category 1. "A Band That Should Have Been Bigger", 2 votes on the Finnish heavy metal band AMORPHIS, so true, they really deserve it.

Today's tune "The Four Wise Ones" is taken from the twelfth studio album "Under the Red Cloud", released worldwide on 4 September 2015 through Nuclear Blast. The album was produced by Jens Bogren, who was described as "just the right person" by keyboardist Santeri Kallio. This would be the band's last album with longtime bassist Niklas Etelävuori who left in 2017.

The band is starting their tour with Swedish SOILWORK on the January 11th and on January 15th they play here in Stockholm at Fryshuset, see all the dates below.
