AMARANTHE – release third single and music video for “Archangel”

All dreams are shattered, all hopes are lost – but out of the fuming ashes of apocalypse, there’s a new star rising high into the blackened sky: Today, AMARANTHE release “Archangel”, the third single from their upcoming album “Manifest”, to be out October 2nd, via Nuclear Blast.
A merciless but on point modern metal extravaganza coming with brutal riffs, a tempting chorus and hellish vibes – long story short: An infernal pleasure that makes you want to trade your soul for the fallen angel.

AMARANTHE commented:
“Fire and brimstone! Savour the sweet scent of sulphur 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!”

“Manifest” will be available as CD, media book with four bonus tracks, media book bundle with patch (limited to 250 units, mailorder exclusive), Gold Vinyl (limited to 300 units, mailorder + wholesale exclusive), Blue/Black Marbled Vinyl (limited to 300 units, EMP exclusive), Cyan Vinyl (NB USA exclusive) as well as six individual band member Vinyls (limited to 150 units each, worldwide bandshop exclusive).

Each vinyl color was personally selected by the single band members and is a bold statement for which value is the most important to them: Creativity, independence, prudence, cleverness, single-mindeddess and composure. All together, these values are the foundation to overcome obstacles and face difficult and uncertain situations. To symbolize that, every vinyl comes with a “hero card” corresponding with the band member and their personally picked value. When all six cards are united, they form the album cover for “Manifest”. The colours include:
Red w/ Gold Splatter (Olof)
Clear w/ Red Splatter (Elize) *Sold Out*
Green w/ Black Splatter (GG6)
White w/ Blue Splatter (Nils)
Pink w/ Green Splatter (Johan)
Orange w/ Black Splatter (Morten)

AMARANTHE have spent the last decade establishing themselves as a formidable, positive and fervently melodic force for metallic good. From their explosive self-titled debut in 2011 to the more sophisticated, streamlined likes of 2014’s “Massive Addictive” and its immaculate follow-up “Maximalism” (2016), AMARANTHE have masterfully blurred the lines between melodic metal, crushing brutality, cinematic sweep and futuristic sparkle. Led by the endlessly ingenious songwriting of guitarist OlofMörck and powerhouse vocalist Elize Ryd, their rise to prominence has been a joy to behold.
Widely acclaimed as a dazzling live act, the Swedes reached a new peak of creativity on 2018’s hugely successful “Helix”: an album that pushed the band’s vision to new heights, breadths and depths, while showcasing the brilliance of Elize and her co-vocalists, Henrik Englund Wilhelmsson and recent recruit Nils Molin.
Not just a glorious return but a wholesale upgrade for their exuberant sound, “Manifest” is simply the most daring, dynamic and unforgettable album that AMARANTHE have released to date. The perfect antidote to the nagging anxieties plaguing us all in these troubled times, it’s a Technicolor celebration of metal’s ageless power, blazing with all of life’s colours and chaos, but delivered with utmost artistry and skill.
