Returning to their roots

"Here's a CD that demonstrates something every band should do at least once in its lifetime -- give tribute in music to its influences and roots. Amorphis does a fine job of this with the folk-tinged "My Kantele (Acoustic Reprise)" and the 70s-era roots-metal/hard-rock feel of the other four tracks. This EP is a very good change of pace from a band that's spent most of its lifetime cranking out death metal tracks."
The most progressive effort of Amorphis

"The "My Kantele EP" is by no doubt the most "progressive" album from Amorphis so far and it is also one of my long time favourites and in my opinion - one of Amorphis' best works. The first track, 'My Kantele', is of course a beautiful song, and I must say I prefer the acoustic reprise which is on this EP. The two-part 'Brother-Slayer' -song is .. well, astonishingly good. The first part is kind of the story-telling part and the song spins off to some sort of psychedelic jamming (great, but I would have wanted more!). Levitation , a cover of Hawkwind's song, has in my opinion, even more "drive" in it than the original did. The albums' last track, 'And I Hear You Call' is by no doubt a successful cover in honour of a late Finnish top-notch cult band Kingston Wall and its late leader, singer/guitarist Pete Walli. The song itself is very nice and the band does a surprisingly good job in it, though I must say nobody beats Sami Kuoppamäki, the Kingston Wall drummer.. sorry ;) And about the death vocals in the verse, well.. kind of reminds me of Amorphis' cover of classic The Doors song "Light My Fire" which surely has some divided opinions. Anyways a great EP and surely worth checking out -well, unless if you dislike anything that even reminds something slightly progressive."
Incredibly varied and with great atmospheres

"the opening title track in its acoustic version stays in your
mind forever. all the songs coming next are a smooth, flawless progression. amorphis gives the covers a new
vibe making them seem like its their very own music.
