But Amorphis is one of the most (if not the most) overrated bands in MS, specially their later stuff

I agree about Amorphis. There definitely are overrated melodeath bands.
But then again, I think Judas Priest, Megadeth, Metallica, Iron Maiden and bands from many other genres are overrated too. I might get hated for saying this, but that's what I think.

These bands work hard all their lives to forge their craft. You and I sit casually and give our opinions. Who gives a fuck? jmika also gave South of Heaven a 2. Go figure.

Has its highlight but not very impressive. No more than 8 imo (for some of the good part).
As for the Insomnium thing, there are some pieces of riff sounds familiar but Shylmagoghnar still influenced a lot by black metal so it's different.
There are so many bands that I just love one of their albums, so I won't list them out.
But no, I don't take suggestions.

titles are dull
So right now, this is on place 5 of the "Top of 2018"...
Are you serious?

I am not saying this is a bad album, I really enjoyed the general direction of the record and the first couple of tracks.
But on the other hand: the keyboards sound poor and cheap and most of the songs are far (!) to long. Closing the album with an instrumental lasting for painful 13 1/2 minutes was the worst idea the band could come up with. Besides, there is a high grade of repetition in these songs, playing the same melody over and over again. The last three tracks sum up to 35:40 minutes and musically, there is not enough going on to fill this everlastingness with something that deserves a rating above 8/10 if you ask me.
signatures = SPAM

I tried to get back into the previous record after this but it just feels damn boring now.
