Amaranthe Sign With Nuclear Blast

Amaranthe have signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records. The band are currently working on a new album and are planning to release it through the label in 2020.

Olof Mörck commented:

“It feels amazing to unveil our cooperation with the giants at Nuclear Blast! Ever since we held our shiny new Nuclear Blast CDs in our teenage hands back in the mid-’90s, 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, added:

“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.”

Amaranthe Premiere “365” Music Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Helix”

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their new song “365.” This track is from the band’s new album “Helix,” which will be released on October 19. That effort will be the group’s first with new singer Nils Molin (Dynazty).

Guitarist Olof Mörck said the following:

“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. 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 also 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 Elize Ryd also commented:

“‘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.”
