We found Tomi...it took quite a lot of time as we looked over a lot of demos of different singers and a lot of people as well but Tomi came by word of mouth. My friend's, friend's, friend knew him [smiles] and we liked his voice.
I think there are a lot of bands that give up after a certain point when things get rough and they don't see much development. I think that's stupid because the point is you are suppose to be writing music for yourself and see how things will progress from there.
The band's name is sort of an accident. (everyone laughs) Amorphis was a name that we thought was all right. For us, the transition has been quite natural from album to album. It keeps us alive and it keeps the interest on the music a little bit more. Now that Pasi has been with us for two albums it's more of a straight sound. Line-up changes will always affect a band's sound - we have a new bass player now.
