“Genuinely great live albums are few and far between, but Queen Of Time (Live At Tavastia 2021) presents a truly worthwhile moment in time, captured for posterity. And with AMORPHIS

still in majestic form (last year’s Halo might just be their strongest album to date), this will ensure that the faithful return in their droves next time the band hit the road.” – Blabbermouth

“Being a musician is not an easy job, being able to make your stage presence known regardless of an audience is even better.” – My Global Mind

“…an impressive piece of visual music…” – Time For Metal

“…a role model example of how to produce a lockdown concert Blu-ray properly…” – Musik Reviews

“A live album without applause in between tracks is definitely odd, but AMORPHIS’ energy doesn’t lag at all. Their musicianship is razor sharp as they play Queen Of Time front to back.” – Heavy Music HQ
