Watch Amaranthe’s Elize Ryd & Olof Mörck’s Recent Instagram Live Performance

Amaranthe Begin Recording New Album

Amaranthe have entered the studio to begin the recording process for their new album. The effort is expected to be released later this year.

The band commented:

“By now, some of you know that we will start the recording of our new album today, Monday 16th.

It is an odd feeling to continue operations while large parts of the world is at a lockdown, and the music industry is suffering greater than most other businesses — but we find it extremely important to soldier on, as we refuse to be beaten by this disease. It also means that we are effectively isolating ourselves, as everyone should as much as possible.

We were set to travel to the studio on Sunday 15th, but as the Danish government decided to lock their border with only hours notice, we had to make a very sudden and daring escape from Sweden into Denmark, ending up at an utterly deserted Copenhagen train station about one hour before the lockdown. We were quite literally the only ones making our way INTO the country, while everyone else was trying to get OUT. As you can no doubt imagine, people think we are mad.

Many of you are now in voluntary or involuntary isolation, and we will try our best to entertain you with regular updates from the studio! Even in its early phase, the album is something we feel incredibly strongly about, and we think you will no doubt know what we mean when you get to hear it later this year.

Stay safe, wash your hands, keep your distance from the elderly and the sick — spread the love, not the virus!”

Amaranthe Premiere Music Video For New Song “Do Or Die” Feat. Angela Gossow (Ex-Arch Enemy)

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their new song “Do Or Die.” This track features former Arch Enemy vocalist Angela Gossow.

Gossow commented:

“It was thrilling to join Amaranthe for a more extreme track and shooting a cutting-edge video for it! This is no cozy studio performance, but real ice-cold winds, sewages, cadavers and pouring rain — the reality we live in, the devastating legacy we leave to our future generations. Time to wake up, turn — and bang — some heads! Watch out for these guys and killer lady, they are going to crush you this year with a new album and some heavy touring!!!”

Guitarist Olof Mörck added:

“While Amaranthe’s music is often uplifting, energetic and positive, sooner or later everyone needs to deal with the obvious fact that the world is literally crumbling around us — and it is crumbling fast, thanks to the short sighted abuse of our common Mother Earth! We talked to legendary Angela Gossow of Arch Enemy fame to do an entire package of a video and a song, outside of any normal album cycle, and let our different perspectives on metal collide in a massive explosion; and it resulted in ‘Do Or Die’! Together with Overbeck Media who shot the video, we delivered something really quite special, and Angela brings in a fresh strength to the trademark Amaranthe sound that is sure to resound all across the metal world! Death and fire!”
