Here’s a snippet of the official press release:

Melancholic progressive metaller Amorphis are about to unleash their latest offering entitled Queen Of Time on May 18th via Nuclear Blast. The time has come to present the first taster of the band’s 13th studio album. Check out “The Bee,” the opening track, here:

Guitarist Esa Holopainen commented: “This song is a very powerful opener and gives a nice picture of what the whole album is all about. You can already hear some new elements like choirs and orchestral arrangements in it.”

Vocalist Tomi Joutsen added: “Of course, the lyrical inspiration is a bee, also in a metaphoric way. The tiniest thing can sometimes be the most important thing. A bee can bring life or if we destroy all the bees, life will stop here. It’s a very beautiful animal, that’s why you can find it on the album cover too. The track itself is a kind of progressive and I’m sure that it will surprise some fans in a positive way. We love it!”
