Amorphis’ Under the Red Cloud reaches great chart results

Amorphis reached great chart results around the world last week with their latest album Under the Red Cloud, including their first ever chart entry in United Kingdom and Australia. In addition the album climbed to the highest ever entries in Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands. Germany’s Metal Hammer chose Under the Red Cloud as album of the month.

Band’s guitarist Esa Holopainen commented: "With our 12th studio album we finally made it to TOP 10 in Germany. In most of territories we beat our previous chart entries in these times when there's tons of albums released every week and artists are struggling with sales. This is absolute hats off and humblest salute to our fans. Feels unbelievable, thank you."

In November the band heads on a European tour with Nightwish and Arch Enemy (tour dates below). See Amorphis on Aus Finnland calendar here
