The Bee 02. Message In The Amber 03. Daughter Of Hate 04. The Golden Elk 05. Wrong Direction 06. Heart Of The Giant 07. We Accursed 08. Grain Of Sand 09. Amongst Stars 10. Pyres On The Coast  Bonus Tracks (DIGI, 2LP, and MAILORDER EDITION only)  11. As Mountains Crumble 12. Brother And Sister  The cover artwork, which was created by French artist  Jean "Valnoir" Simoulin  from  Metastazis , captures the feeling of the lyrics and the music. With  Pekka Kainulainen 's (lyricist) words, the lyrical theme is universal: "Cultures rise, flourish, and are destroyed. The story of man is the story of searching, finding, and forgetting. A single spark can set the world afire, a single idea can give birth to a new culture. The greatest can stagnate into insignificance, the smallest can hold the power for change. The lyrics on this album are distant echoes of ancient forest peoples, from a time when meaning was proportioned by the cosmic forces that govern birth and death. If the connection was lost, they sought for a strand of knowledge, found a new direction, and a new age began."   AMORPHIS   w/ DARK TRANQUILLITY, MOONSPELL, OMNIUM GATHERUM  07.09.
