Amaranthe, the cutting edge outfit with the triple-lead-vocal attack, can now reveal the title, artwork & arrival date for their latest studio album – the follow-up to 4s breakthrough Massive Addictive release…
Titled 'Maximalism' and due out via Spinefarm Records on October 21st, this hyper-modern, metallic beast of a record is the bands fourth since first joining forces back in 8; 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 consistently pursued the less travelled path, blending different sounds and styles to create a signature hybrid approach, and Maximalism sees their collective wide-angle vision laid out with greater skill and conviction than ever before.
From the locomotive power of Faster & Fury through to the more measured drama of Limitless & Endlessly (a solo tour-de-force for singer Elize Ryd), this is Amaranthe ramping up both the energy and the emotion, and generally pushing everything To The Max….
Says lead guitarist, Olof Morck:-
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… theres everything here including stadium rock, innovative pop and danceable super-hits. Expect these tunes to enter your mind on a permanent basis!
