AMORPHIS / My Kantele EP (1997)

An acoustic version of a track originally on the Elegy (1996) album, two previously unreleased tracks and two new covers make this E.P a must for fans of the guys from Finland.  The E.P is less metal than the album was but the song writing is no less interesting.  It's a lot more folk and poetically driven than they were originally known for.  Strangely, I prefer this version, it has a beauty that the original lacked.  The two covers I mentioned are a Hawkwind song, and a Kingston Wall song.  If you liked the experimental progressive folksy metal of the Elegy album you'll like this.
