When I think barbecue, I do not think Amorphis.
Yet, for reasons unknown, Finnish metal outfit Amorphis will be releasing a bourbon sauce called “Hopeless” on April 17.
I love barbecue sauce. If the band wants to send me a bottle, I will review it. Cook up a nice cut of beef or make some burgers, and top ‘em off with some thick-ass “Hopeless.”
From a marketing standpoint, “Hopeless” is pretty much the worst name for any product.
“Mildly hot and rich flavored sauce made of apples, chipotle and bourbon,” reads a description of the sauce. “Use it in barbecue or on any food as a dip or condiment. On barbecue use low or medium temperature.”
The sauce is available for purchase here.
Two days after the release of the sauce, Amorphis’ eleventh album, Circle, will be released by Nuclear Blast Records.
