Amaranthe - Announce New Album, Share New Track


The Swedes Amaranthe have chosen today to reveal the details of their new album. The follow-up to Maximalism is called Helix, due out on October 19th through Spinefarm Records and armed with new singer Nils Molin, the band takes another leap forward in its sonic evolution. For now, check out "365", their new video once again directed by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company. "365" is the first single from Amaranthe's fifth album, which will be released later in the year.




"And so the time is finally now! We have been itching to release this monster of a track '365' represents the Amaranthe sound in every conceivable way," commented guitarist Olof Mörck. "The foundation is the heaviest and most down-tuned soundscape we have produced to date, from the bone-crunching guitars and drums, all the way to the juggernaut keyboards kicking off the song. The '365' video was shot with Patric Ulleaus to perfectly counterpoint the take-no-prisoners approach of the song, undeniably demonstrating the unity and chemistry of the Amaranthe lineup."

He added: "The Helix album itself is a statement, a declaration and an assertion that we are here to stay, and that the songwriting and musicianship has been honed and maximized to the highest level yet on an Amaranthe record. The process of composing this album with Elize [Ryd] was as inspiring as it was smooth, and from a composer's and arranger's perspective, a dream collaboration. The time is nigh, the die is cast, and all the stars are right: the Helix will steamroll across the globe, and in its wake, the touring machine that is Amaranthe will conquer all!"

Vocalist and composer Elize Ryd offered her take, saying: "Helix describes the concept of how the past forms us and how life makes us become. No excuses, no regrets. We express the challenges and the uplifting moments in time, and all that in between with the sounds that we love. We want to dedicate this album to all the fighters and friends out there."

How people can even still support this band?
It's so damn generic, sounds like any of the song from their previous albums. It looks like they try to cover lack of creativity and ideas with 3x vocals. Guitars sounds so weak in the mix since it's layered with some synths. One big NO.
The only interesting thing in this video is wet Elise, that's all.

If people like it, let them like it

It's like liking any other type of music, even if you think it's cheesy.

The only thing this band has going for it is that Elize is kinda attractive.

I really liked their first record, despite it's formulaic nature, I thought it was a really cool blend.

This is just terrible though.

I still enjoy The Nexus and (to a slightly lesser extent) Massive Addictive, but the last album was terrible, and this is similarly unappealing. Where's the energy gone, and the hooky choruses? The whole appeal of this pop-style what its immediate nature and hooks, this is boring and the electronics sound like crap
