AMOTH (ft.Ensiferum's Pekka Montin) Shares Power Ballad "Traces In The Snow"
Finland's Amoth featuring Pekka Montin of Ensiferum on vocals are sharing their third single "Traces In The Snow" off their forthcoming album "The Hour Of The Wolf" due out on January 28, 2022. "The ballad of the album. We are very pleased with how this turned out! I think many people will like this even if they don’t otherwise listen to metal music. Very strong lyrical content. Can’t wait for people to hear this." adds Amoth guitarist and main songwriter Tomi Ihanamäki.
"Traces In The Snow" can be heard via its lyric video https://youtu.be/AbIwn-cDPlk Amoth is a melodic progressive heavy metal band from Helsinki, Finland. Their third studio album "The Hour Of The Wolf" is a huge leap forward compared to their previous recordings "Revenge" (2016), "Crossing Over" (2011), "Wounded Faith (EP) (2008). "This is by far our best album yet! Superior performances from all of the musicians. Much better production and songwriting. It’s not a fast-food album. Some of the songs are quite complex so it takes probably more than one listen to really get into!” comments Amoth guitarist and main songwriter Tomi Ihanamäki.
Amoth’s roots are strongly founded on 80’s heavy metal, but branch out in different directions with elements from progressive rock, thrash, and even jazz brought to the table.
The new album features Pekka Montin of Ensiferum once again as the lead vocalist and for the first time, there are also keyboards on an Amoth recording. Fans can expect insane vocals and virtuoso-like playing from all members of the band. The nine songs are very diverse, taking sudden twists and turns into unexplored territory. Amoth even offers up two Steve Vai / Joe Satriani-style instrumentals on this new full-length with tracks "Wind Serenade Part I" and "Wind Serenade Part II".
Amoth's new album "The Hour of The Wolf" is recommended for fans of Iron Maiden, King Diamond, Testament, Megadeth, Joe Satriani.
