Finnish band Amorphis have been around since 1990 and, while their style has shifted somewhat over those nearly three decades, their desire to push the boundaries of prog metal has remained consistent. At their most experimental, in the early to mid-’90s, the group delved into the dark world of folk metal, resulting in music that sounded like medieval chanting over brutal death metal. Later, they played around with psychedelic metal, melodic death metal and doom metal, as well as straight prog metal. Always metal, always heavy, always genre-defying. Queen of Time, which came out in May on Nuclear Blast, is the band’s 13th studio album and, true to form, it features pipes, saxophone and laryngeal singing. Sometimes, you’ve got to throw your expectations out of the window and go with the flow.
