AMARANTHE Unveils New Track


Hitting Stores Internationally on March 25th also via Spinefarm Records

New Music Video for ‘The Nexus’: Racking Up 916,000 Views on VEVO and Counting!

Swedish/Danish modern metal sextet AMARANTHE are streaming Mechanical Illusion, a brand new track on their official website. It’s cut from their forthcoming sophomore album, The Nexus, due for release in the U.S. on March 26, 2013 via Spinefarm Records. The Nexus will be released internationally on March 25.


AMARANTHE Unveils Mechanical Illusion Video, The Nexus Available March 26 via Spinefarm Records

In the words of AMARANTHE guitarist/composer Olof Mörck,

“To give a second taster of The Nexus is truly exciting! The first single and title track showed a familiar, yet amped-up AMARANTHE. Mechanical Illusion is quite different from what people have heard from us so far. Probably the heaviest track yet, a dystopian vision steeped in a darkened futuristic atmosphere, combined with a mega-catchy chorus that is likely to ring in your head for days. Brace yourselves, the illusion is upon us!” 

AMARANTHE recently released their new music video for the title track, The Nexus, which has racked up an impressive 916,000 views in just one month. The video is available now at this link. The video was directed by Patric Ullaeus, who has worked with names such as In Flames, Arch Enemy and Dimmu Borgir; he was also responsible for AMARANTHE video for The Hunger, the lead single from the band’s highly successful debut, now at a whopping 3.5 million YouTube views (and counting).

The Nexus was produced by Jacob Hansen (whose credits include Volbeat, Dreamshade & Ginger Wildheart, and who worked on AMARANTHE’s 2011 self-titled debut).

AMARANTHE: Andy – vocals, Jake E – vocals, Elize – vocals, Olof Mörck – guitars & keys, Morten Løwe Sørensen – drums, Johan Andreassen – bass
