Sinisthra (Amorphis) Premiere New Song “Closely Guarded Distance”

Sinisthra, the band featuring Amorphis frontman Tomi Joutsen, have premiered a new song titled “Closely Guarded Distance.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Broad And Beaten Way,” which will be released on May 15. The group commented:

“‘Closely Guarded Distance’ is the centrepiece of the album and probably the hardest to digest of the whole lot. So we chose it as the first ‘single.’ It’s some 13 minutes long, divided into three parts. The first phase is the courting, the second phase is the fulfillment and the final phase is aftermath. Musically, it’s an amalgamation of several half- finished and half- discarded songs we had lying around. I think it represents what Sinisthra is about, with all our main ingredients neatly distilled into one song.”
