AMARANTHE Returning To Studio After Tour

AMARANTHE – the modern metal sextet from Gothenburg, Sweden – announced that they will be returning to North America in support of their new album.  The band will be providing direct support for Within Temptation. The tour begins 9/25 in San Francsico, CA and runs through 10/11 in Worcester, MA.

Guitarist Olof Morck commented on the North American tour:

“We could not be more pleased to announce that we will be supporting Within Temptation on their North American tour this fall! I have loved Within Temptation’s music for almost ten years, so it will be an honor to support them. But most of all, we can’t wait to see our amazing American fans again, and make a bunch of new ones!”

The band has confirmed an autumn 2014 release date for their new studio album via Spinefarm Records; as yet untitled, this latest outing will be the follow-up to Amaranthe (2011, now gold in Sweden) and The Nexus (2013). These two releases, which defined the band’s approach through their signature blend of musical styles and voices, caused an international stir right from the start; not only did The Nexus top the rock chart in Sweden, but it went straight to # 1 on the US iTunes Metal Chart as well, whist the videos (from both albums) have continued to clock up millions of views.

The success of these records saw AMARANTHE  playing to audiences all over the world, and now – following shows across Europe, including an appearance at the Bandit Awards in Stockholm where one of the band’s three singers, Elize Ryd, received the ‘Rock n’ Role Model’ Award – the six will head back into the studio.

AMARANTHE are currently on tour in Europe.  A complete list of dates and links to purchase tickets can be found HERE.

BOMBUS Premiere New Video

Los Angeles, CA – Gothenburg‘s metal bastards BOMBUS have completed their second blistering video for their Century Media debut albumTHE POET AND THE PARROT. The video for “Enter The Night” was created by former bass player, Ulf Lundèn, who is now in charge of all the band’s artwork and shows the detailed love that Ulf took to create this work of art.

Bombus cover

The band has teamed up with METAL HAMMER (UK) to premiere the video. Check it out here: www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/the-new-bombus-video-is-pretty-freaky/

Here is what BOMBUS had to say about the video:

“Enter the Night is, obviously since we’re using it as a video track, one of our favorites on the album. The song pretty much sums up what we’re about as it starts out as an aggressive rocker and ends on a more barren note. Behind the video is ex BOMBUS bass player Ulf – who totally has outdone himself with this video – where he lets BOMBUS enter and travel through his version of the night. Enjoy and buckle up!” – BOMBUS

THE POET AND THE PARROT will be in stores September 17 and will be available as a limited edition Digipak with 2 additional bonus tracks, as a standard CD and as a gatefold vinyl (180 gram on black or dark green wax).

For Pre-order, please head over to www.cmdistro.com/bombus

RAM Present Brand New Video Clip

Swedish heavy metal act RAM recently shot a video for the song I Am The End from their latest release, Death. Metal Blade Records partnered with Revolver Magazine to premiere the video in North America. Click HERE to watch the new video now at revolvermag.com.

10th anniversary show in Gothenburg announced!

I Am The End was directed by Martin Högdal, edited by Leonard Palmestål and written by Oscar Carlquist – the same team that worked on the Flame Of The Tyrants video. The song was written by Harry Granroth and Oscar Carlquist.

Oscar Carlquist comments on the video:

“The I Am The End video shows a completely different side of the cinematic vision of RAM than what we created in the Flame Of The Tyrants video. This video displays a lot of esoteric aspects, and has many layers of symbolism that will not be seen at once. We thank everybody involved for their outstanding dedication to making flesh out of our disturbed visions.”

Fans can order Death and watch the video for Flames Of The Tyrants at metalblade.com/ram

In other news Daniel Johansson – guitarist and one of the founding members – has decided to leave the band. The departure was amicable and a replacement for Daniel has already been found. RAM are very happy and proud to welcome former RAM session guitarist Martin Jonsson as a fulltime member.

2013 marks the 10 year anniversary since RAM released their first release: the Sudden Impact EP. This will be celebrated on Friday, September 13. A concert has been booked in Gothenburg at the venue Sticky Fingers (Top Floor). The show will also feature special guests PORTRAIT and TRIAL. RAM’s performance will be filmed.

The Sudden Impact EP will be rereleased on vinyl only and in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies through Gothenburg based label Lake Of Fire productions. The EP will be released at the 10th anniversary concert.

RAM live shows:
19/07/13 FI – Lieto – Hammer Open Air
13/09/13 SE – Gothenburg – 10th Anniversary Show
19/10/13 NL – Amstelveen – Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival

“It’s an ‘imagine Ozzy and George Lynch joined Exodus’ pastiche” – Decibel Magazine

“Despite their Swedish origin, RAM bubbles over with the kind of British riffing and toe-tapping gallop pacing that so is so inseparable from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal” – BloodyGoodHorror.com

“as muscular and dynamic as it is epic and catchy” – Kerrang Magazine

“The album shines for its riffs. Songs like Comes from the Mouth Beyond and Release Me feature a flawless lead guitar; although it’s definitely classic heavy metal, it’s played in a much more aggressive manner, making it something akin to Saxon on a cocaine binge” – MetalSucks.net
