Helsinki, Finland: Progressive Metal stalwarts Amorphis are scheduled to visit South Africa in September 2016 for a two-city tour. Dates confirmed by the local promoter, Witchdoctor Productions, include Friday 2 September at The Assembly in Cape Town, and Saturday 3 September at Bassline in Johannesburg.
Amorphis have been a staple on the European scene since forming in 1990 and can celebrate one of the most dynamic careers within the broader genre. With roots in Death Metal, Folk Metal, Doom Metal, Heavy Metal and more, Amorphis have managed to accumulate a strongly eclectic fanbase over more than two decades and twelve studio albums, and have gradually expanded their footprint into a global one.
The most recent Amorphis album is their 2015 Under the Red Cloud release which charted in nine European countries, peaking at No.2 in their homeland of Finland. Below is the video for ‘Sacrifice’ which was released two weeks before the album in September last year.
