Writing uplifting, energetic songs is a trademark Amaranthe feature, and ‘PvP’ is certainly no exception!

Vicky Psarakis (The Agonist) Shares Covers Of System Of A Down’s “Protect The Land” & Amaranthe’s “BOOM!1”

Vicky Psarakis (The Agonist) has released new videos for her covers of System Of A Down’s “Protect The Land” and Amaranthe’s “BOOM!1.” “Protect The Land” features Cody Johnstone and “BOOM!1” features Quentin Cornet.

Amaranthe Premiere “BOOM!1” Video

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their song “BOOM!1.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Manifest.” The group commented:

“In a time when everyone seems to have an opinion about absolutely everything our very own motormouth, GG6, reserves his right to help himself to a small arsenal of explosives topped off with a ton or two of dynamite, and watch your opinion go ‘BOOM!1’! Discussions on elections, pandemics and riots has led to increased polarization in today’s society, but our Growl God simply prefers it all at 1000°F. A full-on onslaught of detuned metal with some of the fastest growls to grace today’s scene, ‘BOOM!1’ acts as a sequel to 2018’s ‘GG6’, and it raises the bar on every level — with a video presented in a Tarantino-esque style, sure to be just as entertaining as the song itself! So serve yourself a cold glass of Napalm, and watch your world go ‘BOOM!1’!”

Amaranthe Premiere “Fearless” Video

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their new song “Fearless.” This track is from the band’s new album “Manifest,” which was released today (October 2).

Amaranthe said the following about the new record:

“So, we come to it at last! We are so very proud and happy to finally unveil ‘Manifest’ to the world, an album written with so much pure joy and enthusiasm, and yet very nearly did not see the light of day.

When faced with the decision to record the album despite a worldwide pandemic, the answer was the same as when we canceled tours that were supposed to promote the album: we HAVE to release this album in 2020! As our longtime listeners are well aware of, Amaranthe believes in positive, energetic, and uplifting music, and we feel that such sentiments are more needed than ever before! Easily our most confident and convincing album to date, this is music born out of pure passion and eagerness to create. This is our manifesto, and all our aesthetic aspirations made apparent — this is ‘Manifest’.”

They also added the following about “Fearless”:

“Fear — perhaps the most primal of instincts and most ancient of proclivities, and yet despite all our recent technological marvels our tendency towards fear only grows. Perhaps the great paradox of our time: we have never been materially safer, yet never more exposed to the ills and misfortunes of our truly global civilization. This very primal urge is the pure currency for both political and financial gain, and the more we give in to fear, the more it enslaves us. However, inside each and every one of us, there is also courage, conviction, and determination. It is in the face of adversity that we grow the strongest — so heed your inner warrior, pay homage to bravery — and transform into the ‘Fearless’!”

Amaranthe Premiere “Archangel” Video

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their new song “Archangel.” This track is from the band’s new album “Manifest,” which will be released on October 2.

Amaranthe commented:

“Fire and brimstone! Savor the sweet scent of sulfur as Amaranthe delves deep into Miltonian lore with ‘Archangel’!

An ancient tale of the fall of the angel Lucifer Morningstar was interpreted as a Greek tragedy in John Milton’s seminal ‘Paradise Lost’, and it is from this perspective we tell a brief yet momentous story of greed, betrayal, and overblown pride — an all too familiar and contemporary theme.

Amaranthe’s first collaboration with Poland’s visual grandmasters Grupa13 took us from abandoned and ghastly factory halls in Wrocław to the derelict ruins of Świny Castle among the Polish mountains. Light up your incense, fill your goblet, and delight in a darker shade of Amaranthe!”
