Big news for AMORPHIS: The latest release from the Melancholic Progessive Metal band reached gold status in their home country! “Queen Of Time” has officially sold more than 10.000 units in Finland.

The award marks a milestone of the band’s latest album of AMORPHIS. Released on 18th May 2018, “Queen Of Time” reached numerous great chart results including the best German chart position in the band’s history (#4).

Esa Holopainen about the award:
“It’s pretty tricky to sell lots of albums these days when people are used to listening to random songs from streaming platforms. So it’s a great honor to have achieved gold on an album that we put a lot of effort and time into. A big thanks goes to our producer Jens Bogren, our lyricist Pekka Kainulainen, our visual artist Jean ‘Valnoir’ Simoulin, our management Grey Beard and label Nuclear Blast plus every single soul that worked for ‘Queen Of Time’. Nevertheless, biggest hugs to our loyal fans as ‘Queen Of Time’ was the most selling physical album in Finland in 2018. It has also streamed extremely well so we salute you!”

Though, the success is no reason for AMORPHIS to slow down: Together with their label mates, the epic masters of symphonic black metal DIMMU BORGIR and blackened ambient metal heroes WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM will invade Europe for a big European tour in winter 2020. Tickets are on sale now.
