Amorphis was/is a Finnish Death metal band formed in 1990, by a few ex-members of another Death metal group :Abhorrence, The band recorded the demo "Disment of Soul" in 1991, and got immediately signed to Relapse ( greatly due to the PR made by Abhorrence ). a single and and their first full-length "Karelian Isthmus" was released in 1992. The album was recorded in 1992 in Sunlight Studios of Stockholm and with assistance of Tomas Skogsberg. The songs recorded in 1991 in Helsinki were featured on the "Privilege of Evil" EP released in 1993 ( the EP was originally ment to release as a split-album with Incantation but due to some problems, Incantation's side wasn't released until 2008 ). The second album "Tales from the Thousand Lakes" released in 1994 represented the new musical world of Amorphis, with more extensive use of keyboards, melody and folk music influenced guitar riffs. In 1995, all the rest of the songs ,that didn't fit on the full-length ,were released on "Black Winter Day" EP . "Tales from the Thousand lakes" has also been considered one of the founding stones of Melodic Death Metal. The lyrical themes of the band also changed during the "Tales . . ." album, and the songs have been inspired by the tales of Finnish epic Kalevala ever since. In 1996 released third album of the band "Elegy" had fallen even deeper to progressive experimenting both in guitars and keyboards and the music had more folk tendencies.

This is from their "Privilege of Evil" EP of 1993

Lyrics:

Terror, when the darkness binds your limbs
Terror, when the fear freezes your nerves
Horror, when the pain climbs up your veins
Darkness, creeping under you skin

Moment of life,
When we all have to choose,
Which way to go
And for whom to sacrifice your life

Invoke the god - pray
To lead you back to life - pray
Cursed by religion - hate
Learned upon church - fake

In the verge of hell,
Of human mind
Redemption of your soul,
As darkness binds you tight

Moment of life,
When we all have to choose,
Which way to go
And for whom to sacrifice your life
