    A NA tour would be nice, especially if it stops in this neighborhood. After the last-minute venue switch debacle in '08, they deserve nothing less than the red carpet treatment.

    I hope they get it, too.

    Shows in Oulu are often particularly fun because they tend to kick off tour legs. Well... they fucking did it again. From Drowned Maid onwards it was pure bliss, and the crowd didn't mind more obscure songs because the running order was perfect.

    I would've left a few spots unrevealed if I knew for sure that someone was going to Seinäjoki tomorrow :p

    1. Hopeless Days
    2. Mermaid
    3. Greed
    4. Silver Bride
    5. Same Flesh
    6. Narrow Path
    7. Majestic Beast

    8. Drowned Maid
    9. Weeper on the Shore (first time since 1997)
    10. My Sun
    11. From the Heaven of My Heart (full intro)
    12. Brother Moon
    13. House of Sleep

    14. Weaving the Incantation
    15. Silent Waters
    16. My Kantele (Opera Festival version)

    Looks like a really nice setlist to me; hope that they will play similar kind of thing later in Lahti (chose this particular venue also because the gig date happens to be closest to my birthday, too ;)) At least there are changes in the set, finally!

    Yet it would be great to see also one of those Tales-anniversary gigs, if they'll ever play one show in Finland...

    Aaaaah (and more some kind of a bizarre, devoted and fascinated voices)!!
    Same flesh, Weaving the Incantation and My Sun, particularly My Sun. They NEED to play it in Turku and/or Jyväskylä.

    Last night was far more conventional (to be fair, the set started past midnight and most of the audience were drunk or tired or both, so too special a set might have been a wasted treat) but I'm glad they kept Weeper in. The exceptionally muddy sound at Virgin Oil notwithstanding it clearly beat the Pasi version. :D

    2. Narrow Path
    3. Silver Bride
    4. Smoke
    5. Brother Moon
    6. Wanderer

    8. Weaving the Incantation
    9. Against Widows
    10. Weeper on the Shore
    11. Majestic Beast
    12. Silent Waters
    13. My Kantele

    14. Sky Is Mine

    I must say I'm a bit jalous now! :) I read they were in a very good mood in Lahti too. Anyway I enjoyed the gig at Virgin Oil with all my heart, because I know I'n not able to attend any other gig this fall.

    Lutakko, Jyväskylä, same setlist, but at this time they had acoustic guitars with (In Turku they didn't had those). My Kantele was half acoustic.

    The gig was better than in Turku. But for me it is always so, all the gigs are better in Lutakko than in somewhere else. Lutakko is very important place to me and always I visit there I also meet old friends and work all the day and night, so it's more than just a gig.

    So, no Same Flesh or My Sun for me. :( Blizk , you'r a lucky man.

    Loved the gig last night! It wasn't planned that I would go to yet another Amo-gig in this autumn - but right after the gig in Lahti I found out that there will be another hometown-gig (or rather in the "countryside" than in the town centrum itself) during this year. So it was an unexpected, but obviously a positive surprise and a rare kind of chance as well...

    Mari's Coffee was already a familiar venue to me, since my friends have played there, too - that's how I knew that it could be very intimate setting for Amorphis-gig as well and got curious because of that. After all it's quite small place, kind of mix of restaurant / cafeteria, bar and gig site.
    And I wasn't wrong after all - this one was the most intimate gig from this band that I have seen so far, the atmosphere was certainly tangible. Must even say that witnessing Brother Moon, Drowned Maid, Weeper On the Shore and also From the Heaven of My Heart in this kind of setting will be among my most memoriable gig experiences.

    The audience seemed to be full of energy as well, but I don't think it's wonder as Amorphis doesn't visit in these hoods every day after all ;) Can't say the exact number of the people there, but at least hundred anyway. People could stand right next to the stage - even though the stage was really low, there wasn't a barrier like usually.
    And there was seemingly a low ceiling as well; when Tomi rose to his platform and uplifted the microphone in his hand, he hit it to a spotlight in the ceiling…

    So the gig itself was enjoyable also for the set list, of similar kind than in Lahti's gig month ago, but with some changes. There they didn't play Drowned Maid, so I was glad that it was in the set now. This time there were no acoustic guitars though, but they still played that new arrangement of My Kantele.
    Yet it was pity that Koippari seemed to have some technical problems, now and then he had to run away from the stage with the guitar. Nevertheless he seemed to be in good mood and was smiling a lot, as usual, and after House of Sleep he also shook hands with people close to the stage (I managed as well, though honestly it was more like a quick slap than decent handshake, heh :p).

    Set list (not in a particular order though):

    Circle (Shades of Grey)-intro
    Hopeless Days
    Silver Bride
    Narrow Path
    The Smoke
    Brother Moon
    Drowned Maid
    Weeper On the Shore
    Weaving the Incantation
    Black Winter Day
    Sky Is Mine
    Silent Waters
    My Kantele
    --------------------------------------
    Skyforger-intro
    From the Heaven of My Heart
    The Wanderer
    House of Sleep

    Same as above plus Folk Of The North in Munich. Nevermind that Tomi's dreads are not as long as they used to be, the remaining measures of awesomeness are still (or again) perfectly intact. :D

    Good Lord, who do we have to bribe to get them back over here for a proper tour?

    The Insomnium show with Dark Tranquillity was fantastic, but I would really love to see Amorphis here again.

    What will it take?

    Tuuletar, thanks for the pix!

    Would love to see Amo here again, but every time I wonder when they will be back I think of this Age of Metal interview with Alan Averill of Primordial:

    That and it would probably help if they didn't get hassled by the cops while going through Arizona. :devil:

    Yeah, it's weird over here now. I hope to see them here again someday too.

    So it looks like Amorphis and Ne Obliviscaris set times will not clash at Tuska, if deciphering the artists list still works like in the previous years :cool:

    There's an interesting detail in the recent interview at Kaaoszine, where Tomi mentions they'll need to play at least three songs off Under the Red Cloud while supporting Nightwish. To me that sounds like Nuclear Blast having a say on that.
