Following a lengthy North American tour beside Swallow The Sun which hit NJ at Starland Ballroom and which did not hit NYC at Le Poisson Rouge (as previously scheduled) thanks to winter storm ‘Stella,’ Finnish melodic heavy metallers Amorphis concluded their stateside invasion in Long Island, NY at Revolution this past Sunday, April 23.
New York fans were treated to a proper and intimate set from Amorphis, peppered with songs from their new album Under the Red Cloud, plus select tracks off their previous LPs Skyforger, Circle, Eclipse, Tales From the Thousand Lakes and Elegy. A packed crowd in Amityville could be seen headbanging, raising horns and singing along to every note emitting from stage, even during the set of fellow Finns Swallow the Sun who warmed up the crowd with cuts from their albums Songs from the North I, II & III, New Moon, Hope, Ghosts of Loss and their EP Plague of Butterflies.
Check out more exclusive photos, plus fan-captured clips from the LI show below.
