Forging the Land of Thousand Lakes will be the title of the new Amorphis DVD which is set for release on the 25th of June via Nuclear Blast. The band revealed this today through a posting to their facebook page and a quick update on their website. Like most DVDs, this is also getting the double live album treatment.

Shining Enters Studio to Begin VII

Well, apparently Shining is wasting no time with releasing a new record. This probably has to do with the fact that VI/Klagopsalmer has been such a long time coming–but also, as I reported the other day, they signed with Indie Recordings and they probably want to get right underway. Anyway, the band has updated its […]
