Amaranthe have been working on a new album, and have shared a new song teaser. Check that out below:
Amaranthe have released a Bliniks remix of “Maximize.” You can get that in various digital outlets now.
Olof Mörck commented:
“Electronic soundscapes have always been a vital part of Amaranthe’s sound, and yet we have tried very little in the realm of collaborations and remixes. ‘Maximize’ was just a perfect track for such an experiment and from the very first time we heard Bliniks’ rendition of the song, we were blown away! For a remix, it really retains the heaviness of the track, but from a brand new and fresh perspective! With an array of cutting edge sounds and electronic vistas, Bliniks has produced a remix that could both appeal to both a headbanger and an EDM-fan alike -and that is saying a lot!”
“For me, heavy metal has been a huge savior in inspiration for the last few years, and nowadays I have a massive urge to combine the elements of melodic metal with the heavier side of electronic music. Amaranthe’s ‘Maximize’ was an amazing experience to remix, because the original was so melodic and uplifting that I already got an amazing idea for a remix after hearing for the first time. Dubstep is one of my most common genres that I produce and the reason why I decided to go right into the remix with dubstep is because some of the modern dubstep is pretty much inspired by heavy metal, but for some reason that has been somewhat forgotten. This remix also includes some bigroom house and trap elements at the end of the remix, so it’s the most varied remix that I have produced to this day.”
Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their track “Maximize.” This song is from the band’s latest album “Maximalism” which is available now. It is worth noting that clip was shot before vocalist Nils Molin joined the group.
Olof Mörck commented:
“‘Understated’ is not what you usually associate Amaranthe with — but seeing the raw emotion and personalities combined with ‘Maximize’, I was convinced that we captured part of the essence of the Amaranthe live machine. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Amaranthe at its rawest and most distilled form! See you all on the road this fall, as the ‘Maximalism’ world invades a city near you!”
Amaranthe have officially recruited Dynazty’s Nils Molin as their replacement for ex-vocalist Jake E. Olof Mörck commented:
“Great news! The AMARANTHE line-up is once again complete – and what an addition Nils Molin is! He was at the very top of the list for the male vocals position, and has already proved his worth on a number of shows with AMARANTHE across Europe. Nils is a born rockstar in every aspect yet with a natural sense of humility, and is certain to leave no fan disappointed! He has gathered a vast amount of experience together with DYNAZTY, and as such has honed his performance skills to perfection; since stepping in he is already a natural part of the line-up. Catch Nils on our upcoming European tour, or any of the planned shows for 2017 – and expect great things to come out of this soon!”

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their track “Boomerang.” This song is from the band’s latest album “Maximalism” which is available now.
Olof Mörck commented:
“It is finally time to release our brand new video for ‘Boomerang’, an Amaranthe take on the classic heist movie. Directed by the legendary Patric Ulleaus, it is everything you have come to expect of an Amaranthe video and much more! It is perhaps the most ambitious video from the band so far, since it is packed to the brim with action, glitter, and glamour. You can try to bring us down, but we’ll come around, like a ‘Boomerang’!”
