Swedish/Danish power/melodic death metal band Amaranthe will release their new album, titled ‘The Nexus’ in March, 25th of March in the UK.
The first video and single from the album are out now.
The band was formed in 2008 (formerly Avalanche ) by Jake E. and Olof Morck. The project began to take shape when singers Elize Ryd and Andy Solvestrom signed on, with drummer Morten Low joining later.
In April 2011 the band’s first self-titled album was released to worldwide acclaim.
In Spring of 2011 Amaranthe completed a full European tour with Kamelot and Evergrey.
The first single ‘The Nexus’ from the Album is out now.
Amaranthe guitarist Olof Mork reveals: “So, the time has finally come to let loose ‘The Nexus’ upon an unsuspecting world! This time we went all the way with our futuristic dream-nightmare – a no compromise vision steeped in deep contrast between the mechanically ultra heavy and shimmering serene melody. ‘The Nexus’ is everything we dreamed about doing with our début album ‘Amaranthe’, but had not yet attained the right sensibility of perfection to realise. We laboured to make this offering as diverse as it is direct and catchy, and not we leave it up to you experience it yourself. Because, unfortunately no-one can be told what ‘The Nexus’ is – you have to hear it for yourself”
