Official press release:

Today, Nuclear Blast is very pleased to announce the signing of modern metal outfit AMARANTHE. The Swedish/Danish six-piece is currently working on their 6th studio album, which will tentatively be unleashed in 2020. More big announcements are currently in the pipeline, stay tuned!

AMARANTHE's Olof Mörck states,

"It feels amazing to unveil our cooperation with the giants at Nuclear Blast! Ever since we held our shiny new Nuclear Blast CD's in our teenage hands back in the mid-90's, they have been at the forefront of bringing the best of the best to the metal scene, and to have them as partners is a dream come true! They are not only massively experienced in the metal scene, but also wonderful people and it has been a pleasure getting to know them. We are already nailing down great plans for the future, and things are looking brighter and stronger for AMARANTHE than ever! Keep your eyes open for our next leap forward together in the near future!"

Marcus Hammer, Managing Director of Nuclear Blast, adds,

"We're more than happy to welcome AMARANTHE and Kult Management to the Nuclear Blast family. I've already been following the group for a while as they were touring with some of their new label mates. Being both great musicians and humans, that have a clear vision and are supported by an experienced team in the back, it was a no-brainer to try to win this outstanding band for our roster. Now we're stoked to be the new partner at their side pursuing one goal: adding a successful next chapter to their already shiny career. The future looks bright for both, AMARANTHE and Nuclear Blast."

With their foundations tracing back to 2008, the group have released 5 albums since then (2011's »Amaranthe,« 2013's »The Nexus,« 2014's »Massive Addictive,« 2016's »Maximalism,« and 2018's »Helix«), consistently delivering hauntingly catchy tunes led by their unique three-part vocals. Within their arsenal of hit singles - with 'Drop Dead Cynical' leading right at the front - a myriad tracks have been received very well via press and fans alike; having also gained countless plays on both radio stations around the globe and across streaming services (the group's songs have been streamed more than 100 million times on Spotify). A string of support tours have blazed AMARANTHE's trail in front of huge crowds as well as at their own headline concerts (the group impressively once performed in front of 10,000 fans at Liseberg, Gothenburg). They have kept working incredibly hard over the years, the latest product of which culminated in the form of »Helix,« which achieved them some of their highest chart positions in the band’s history (Switzerland #21, Germany #29 etc.).

Before AMARANTHE enter the studio once again, the sextet will embark on their Scandinavian »Helix« tour in November 2019, followed by a support tour with Swedish metal giants SABATON alongside Finnish cello metallers APOCALYPTICA set to take place early next year (incl. 5 recently unveiled headline dates in between). All tour dates can be found here.

Olof Mörck comments:
"No one will have any difficulty believing us when we say that we are SUPER stoked to hit Finland again, after this summer's Finnish festivals and the two arena shows earlier this year were all absolutely killer! We will have the super talented gang in BEYOND THE BLACK along with us, and our long-time friends in Swedish powerhouse SMASH INTO PIECES.

Swedish melodic rock titans Amaranthe have dropped the video for "The Helix," which is the title track from the band's most recent album. Watch it here:

"'The Helix' is the title track of the album, and in many ways, it's the quintessential Amaranthe song, as well as very representative of the entire album musically and lyrically," said guitarist Olof Mörck. "We teamed up with director wizard Patric Ullaeus once more to create something perfectly fitting to the song, and obviously Ullaeus never disappoints."

He continues, "Thematically, the video represents the inner and outer journey of overcoming one's fears, the obstacles and the people holding you back, and to ultimately find your true self — 'The Helix' and the core of your soul."

Amaranthe are embarking on a Scandinavian call this fall and will tour with Sabaton and Apocalyptica in 2020.

Amaranthe release their 3rd single from the upcoming album "HELIX"!

MELODIC METAL TRAILBLAZERS AMARANTHE RELEASE "COUNTDOWN" SINGLE + VIDEO

NEW STUDIO ALBUM HELIX OUT OCTOBER 19th VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS

THE VIDEO TEAMS THE BAND UP WITH LONGTIME VISUAL COLLABORATOR - DIRECTOR PATRIC ULLAEUS.


"As the days and weeks are getting closer to the release of 'HELIX', what better way to illustrate our excitement and veritable impatience than by releasing our second single titled 'Ccountdown'? Drawing upon a darker theme and subject matter than your typical AMARANTHE song, the sonic landscape itself forms a perfect counterpoint to this more serious side of the band. The contrasts have perhaps never been stronger, the ambitions never higher, and confidence never more solid - AMARANTHE in 2018 in its purest, most distilled form is 'Countdown'." Commented Amaranthe guitarist and composer Olof Mörck.

Four albums into their career, Amaranthe have racked up north of 118 million YouTube views and half-a-billion song streams, have landed at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart three times, and possess a panoply of gold and platinum discs for albums and singles alike.

With their electrifying fifth album HELIX due out October 19 through Spinefarm Records and armed with new singer Nils Molin, Amaranthe take another leap forward in their sonic evolution.

HELIX proves the band has refined its melodic sensibilities ever further while retaining a cutting-edge metal assault. The band is as massively aggressive as ever and the second video and single “Countdown” once again showcases the band’s unique musical sound and vision.”

Watch the "COUNTDOWN" video here:

In support of the new album, Amaranthe will embark on a European Tour with Powerwolf in October / November.

Olof Mörck: Guitar, Keys

"365", the new video from Swedish melodic metallers AMARANTHE, can be seen below. The clip was once again directed by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company, who has previously worked with DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES and KAMELOT, among others.

"365" is the first single from AMARANTHE's fifth album, which will be released later in the year. The disc was recorded at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark with producer Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, EPICA, DELAIN). The follow-up to 2016's "Maximalism" marks the band's first release with DYNAZTY's Nils Molin, who officially joined AMARANTHE in July 2017 as the replacement for Jake E.

Commented guitarist Olof Mörck: "With a newborn album, it is easy for an artist to fall into hyperbole and rants of how it is the best thing you have ever done — but for the first time, I can confidently say that this album very certainly the best and strongest of our entire career."

Added vocalist Elize Ryd: "I have loved every second to write, create and making this album. I can't wait to reveal the name of our fifth baby, let it loose into the world to live its own life and spread the message all by itself. It feels to me already like the most strong and confident child of ours. The support has been important, and I'm so grateful to everyone involved."


Four albums into their career, Swedish melodic metallers AMARANTHE have racked up north of 118 million YouTube views and half a billion song streams, have landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart three times, and possess a panoply of gold and platinum discs for albums and singles alike.

With its electrifying fifth album "Helix" due out October 19 through Spinefarm Records and armed with new singer Nils Molin, AMARANTHE takes another leap forward in its sonic evolution.

"Helix" proves the band has refined its melodic sensibilities ever further while retaining a cutting-edge metal assault. The band is as massively aggressive as ever and the first single "365" is the perfect example of such — its seductively velvety mix of contemporary pop and modern metal will take up residence in your brain for days.

"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."

"Helix" track listing:

01. The Score
02. 365
03. Inferno
04. Countdown
05. Helix
06. Dream
07. GG6
08. Breakthrough Stardust
