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.”

Amaranthe Finish New Album

Amaranthe have confirmed that their new album is officially finished. This will be the band’s first release with Dynazty’s Nils Molin, who replaced Jake E. in the group. Olof Mörck commented:

“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. Soon enough, you will get to hear for yourself and judge. Now, time to leave Denmark behind and, after two months, return HOME!!”

Elize Ryd added:

“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.”

Amaranthe Release Bliniks Remix Of “Maximize”

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!”

Bliniks added:

“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 Premiere “Maximize” Music Video

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!”
