 :wOOt: thanks, I just love them so much :) they're my favourites together with Therion and NW :whistle: I'm very happy I'll finally get to see them in Romania next month, on a headlining show, because so far both concerts I've seen with them were in festivals -_- now finally I'll get to see Tomi expose his magnificent voice to the full potential :wub:

Mine too...  :wub: I haven't been listening to them for a long time, but I fell in love with them the same moment I heard them  :wub:

I hope I'll be able to see them live in May...  :unsure:

I wonder what will you think about his voice when he also starts becoming old, bald and fat... :nana:

This was off topic but its Ole Markus With's fault... :ninja:

first of all: shut up :nana: second of all: I'll always be a fan of Mats no matter how he may or may not look like... I'm well past the fase where I'd like someone for their looks alone, especially in Mats' case when i've also gotten to know him well enough as a person and see how great he is :wub:

*ends the off-topic madness*

Amorphis now, favourite song anyone? I'm torn between House of Sleep and Towards and Against at the moment... yes as you can see the Tomi era is my favourite :wub:

Started by YOU... :P

Btw MissSwan, I think OFFy asked you to WRITE something about Amorphis, NOT to post a link to a live video... you know Internet is full of live videos to various bands these days... no hard feelings... :fish:

Please write something about Amorphis, maybe in another topic.

*shuts up and goes listening to Amorphis songs in order to choose the best one*
:innocent:

17th time and still counting...

err i posted MY video so SHUT UP, I don't have time right now to write a detailed concert report, so i preferred to let the images and sounds speak for me... it's not like I can say sth that can illustrate the concert more than a live video from the said concert... stop annoying me :fish:

the latest :) "Silent Waters", "Eclipse" would be a good choice too... Amorphis is a band that pretty much changed style with each album they released so it's hard to recommend one

Haha, I know why you recommended that one... because YOU are on the front CD cover! :lol3:
Sounds promising... :thumbup:  Btw why is it written (Holopainen) under some song tittles? Tuomas? :wOOt:
You will get my comments on it soon, I need some time to digest it... :) And in the meantime, I'll be off topic as usually... :nana:

I don't have time right now to write a detailed concert report

I hope you'll find some time to send me something I asked you... almost a month ago! :ninja: Don't forget that I'm waiting... :-\ I don't know for you, but I wouldn't put that into Top 10 pleasant things one could do... :P C'mon MissSwan, if you send me that I might send you something in return! :innocent: For now, I'll just tell you it's better even than that link "All Tarja's shoes" I posted! :biggrin:

errr it's the guitarist and main composer of Amorphis, do you think Holopainen is a unique name or what? and NeMo I don't have any pic of the flag per se, Lasse had some with all of us from that evening if I remember correctly.
