The band name Amorphis was derived from the word "amorphous" which means 'no determinate form or shape'. The band started out as a death metal band in 1990 but have later turned into a sound more similar to the 70's progressive rock bands. In mid-1991 they recorded their one and only demo called "Disment Of Soul" which led to a multi-album deal with Relapse Records. The band was given the chance to tour through Europe several times and in late 1994 they went to the American continent for the first time. The band has become one of the leading metal bands from Finland.
