Biography

Amoral was established by Ben Varon, Juhana Karlsson and Silver Ots in 2000 in Helsinki, Finland.
Their first vocalist was Matti Pitkänen, who was quickly replaced by Niko Kalliojärvi. Former band members also include Ville Sorvali from Moonsorrow on bass. For some time before Sorvali joined Amoral, the band was without bass player, and Ots played bass on some of their demos. Amoral released two demos, Desolation and Other Flesh, with varying line-ups, and played some minor gigs before releasing their first full-length album. Amoral signed with Rage of Achilles Records and released their first album, Wound Creations, in 2004.

The band’s production can be classified as technical, progressive and melodic metal, combined with rock elements. Amoral’s sound is heavy riff driven yet still has a melodic power groove. Skillful ensemble and crisp performance has characterized Amoral, which is internationally recognized as one of Finland’s foremost bands. The brave and independent development of their music can be heard throughout their four albums.

Soon after the 2005 European tour, Amoral returned to the studio to record their second album, Decrowning. The album was released in Finland and several other countries in October 2005 and in Japan and the United States in March 2006. Amoral’s third album was first announced on their website in early July 2006. The album was recorded in Studio Sound Supreme in Hämeenlinna in early 2007, and it was released in August 2007.

    Six years ago I couldn't believe that Amoral would release an album like "Fallen Leaves...". A likely positive surprise of the year.

    this album is very very promising so far. some songs are easy listening like blueprints and see this through, but others are gonna take a few spins to fall in love with. really enjoying the album.

    "Beneath" is probably the most boring album I have ever heard. Hopefully they'll return to their roots in the next album, although it's highly unlikely.

    i'm a fan of their new stuff, and not really a fan of their old stuff with the exception of one or two songs. that being said, they should have done the new stuff under a different name to avoid the confusion. although im starting to think all of you purists who hate the new stuff would still complain about it even if its not under the "amoral" name.

    Particularly, I like Ari on the vocals, I never liked so much of guttural voices, and death vocals .. But the old Amoral was great too, of course. Do not offend me haha'

    They used to be melodic tech death, now they're shitty generic power metal. [2] They used to be great.

    Had the misfortune of seeing these guys with Ensiferum. Absolutely fucking awful. I almost felt bad for laughing at them.
