Helsinki-based Amoral is now a six-piece, with original vocalist Niko Kalliojärvi returning to the lineup. Kalliojärvi’s return has been cooking up since last year, and he will be largely present on the band’s 7th studio album, on which they are working at the moment, with an early 2016 release planned.

”Damnation! The Amoral gigs I’ve done cameos at during the last few years have been fun experiences, so when I was asked to come back to the group, I was both surprised and excited. For musical reasons, but also since I’ve always been comfortable in said company”, Kalliojärvi says.

Niko continues: ”The new lineup let’s us realize musical ideas in a whole new way. The more I’ve been thinking about it, the more it makes sense. Amoral has been broadening it’s sound pallette throughout it’s history – now, more than ever, we have a whole pack of aces up our sleeves!”

Songwriter and guitarist Ben Varon also sees the new possibilities that Kalliojärvi’s return bring to the band.

”Niko’s company felt natural both onstage and backstage, and hearing his voice – which I’ve always said is one of my all-time favorite growls – on those songs after a long while felt good”, Ben says.

”And once I realized what a great guitarist Niko is these days, the vision started to get clearer: this would be just the thing to take our musical journey to the next level! Two singers, three guitar players, one of which is now a part-time keyboardist… Things just got interesting!”
Amoral’s new lineup will make its live debut at the Tuska Metal Festival afterparty in the end of June.
