Halloween may be over, but AMARANTHE extend the spooky season with their new music video for ‘BOOM!1’. Following the release of their groundbreaking sixth studio album “Manifest” that was released on October 2nd, the Swedish modern metal heroes once again showcase their versatility with this grooving and explosive track.
“In a time when everyone seems to have an opinion about absolutely everything our very own motormouth, GG6, reserves his right to help himself to a small arsenal of explosives topped off with a ton or two of dynamite, and watch your opinion go “BOOM!1”! Discussions on elections, pandemics and riots has led to increased polarisation in today’s society, but our Growl God simply prefers it all at 1000°F. A full on onslaught of detuned metal with some of the fastest growls to grace today’s scene, “BOOM!1” acts as a sequel to 2018’s “GG6”, and it raises the bar on every level – with a video presented in a Tarantino-esque style, sure to be just as entertaining as the song itself! So serve yourself a cold glass of Napalm, and watch your world go “BOOM!1″!”

“Manifest” is 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).
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.
