Swedish/Danish modern melodic metal band AMARANTHE - featuring KAMELOT touring singer Elize Ryd - will release their new album, The Nexus, over the next week via Spinefarm Records/Universal Music. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered once again by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, MERCENARY, HATESPHERE) in Ribe, Denmark.
Commented guitarist Olof Mörck: "We have lived and breathed the same 12 songs from the first album every day for a year now, and to introduce a number of completely fresh tracks will really lift Amaranthe to the next level! The theme and atmosphere of the album is futuristic and ultra modern, something underlined by the first teaser poster. The music itself will be instantly recognizable as Amaranthe, but there is definitely a new and unique twist to the songs. People often ask us if there is a big pressure to follow up such a successful album, and always say 'no, not one bit!'"
The first video from the album is for the song 'The Nexus' and was directed by Patric Ullaeus (DIMMU BORGIR, IN FLAMES, ENSLAVED) - check it out below:
