YMMV / Amorphis

Go To

  • Ear Worm: It's nigh impossible to listen to an Amorphis album through and not get at least one of the riffs stuck in your head. See also Epic Riff below.
  • Epic Riff: So many of their songs are built around catchy, often folky or proggy guitar riffs that they're pretty much "Epic Riff: The Band". Short list of examples would include, for starters, most songs from Tales and Elegy, most of their singles, Sky is Mine, Narrow Path and Shades of Gray.

  • Gateway Series: For many people in Finland Tales was their gateway album to Death Metal, due to its high focus on melodies and remarkable popularity for an album from a relatively underground genre.
  • Growing the Beard: While Isthmus was mostly solid old-school death metal, Tales truly introduced the folk/prog elements that became part of their trademark style.
  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks!: The Joutsen Era has invoked this, due to the four consecutive albums sounding relatively similar (In retrospect, their first four albums had tremendous changes from Death Metal to Progressive Metal). The band has also noted this, as they decided to take a new approach in Circle.
  • Mondegreen: "This sky is mine, this song is mine, this street is mine, this turtle's mine!"
  • Signature Song: Black Winter Day, My Kantele and House of Sleep are probably the main contenders.

  • So Okay, It's Average: Band's general opinion of Far From The Sun.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Inevitable with so many New Sound Albums and Genre Shifts.
