AMARANTHE the pioneering outfit notable for having three lead vocalists: Elize Ryd, Jake E Lundberg, and Henrik Englund Wilhemsson — each presenting a different vocal style — reveal the title, artwork & arrival date for their latest studio album – the follow-up to 2014’s breakthrough ‘Massive Addictive’ release…
Titled ‘Maximalism’ and due out via Spinefarm Records on October 21st, this hyper-modern, metallic brute of a record is the band’s fourth since first joining forces back in 2008; produced once again by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Epica, Delain) and mastered by Svante Forsback (Rammstein, Apocalyptica, Dragonforce.)
It sees the Swedish / Danish sextet delivering 12 new tracks that fully live up to the ‘bigger, bolder’ promise of the title.
Refusing to be pinned down by genre or convention, Amaranthe have systematically pursued the less-travelled path, merging different sound structures to create a signature hybrid approach, ‘Maximalism’ sees their collective vision laid out with greater skill and conviction than ever before.
Lead guitarist, Olof Morck explained:
“Maximalism” is our manifesto to the world! We are genuinely thrilled with the new material, definitely our most diverse collection to date; our trademark ‘bleeding edge’ modern metal remains intact, of course, but fused with an even broader range of genres than before… there’s everything here including stadium rock, innovative pop and danceable super-hits. Expect these tunes to enter your mind on a permanent basis!”
In support of ‘Maximalism’ Amaranthe will embark on a headline European tour in October / November, with Sonic Syndicate & Smash Into Pieces
