You probably saw the blinding flash of lightning that lit up the global metal scene last year. Yeah, that was Gothenburg's AMARANTHE. In the current state of the music business, breaking it big like Amaranthe, from virtual unknowns to a household name on the international hard rock and metal scene within a course of just two years is no small feat.
And contrary to the popular belief, this particular bolt does seem to hit the same place twice.
After a completed run of 92 live shows after the release of their eponymous Spinefarm debut, the sextet returned to Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark where the Amaranthe magic has been plucked from the air since the days of the debut album.
Now the band is super stoked to present to the world their sophomore album “The Nexus”.
Right from the outset it is clear that the impossibly infectious union of machine-gun heavy metal riffs, driving beats, contemporary influences and glistening pop refrains made in high heaven returns with a vengeance, seeing every last aspect of the band’s trademark electro-influenced hybrid metal honed to shimmering perfection – melodies to die for, vocal interplay unparalleled, choruses you’d have to tear your head off to get rid of and the feel-good hits like of which you thought you’d never hear again.
Shortly and sweetly put, “The Nexus” is hazardously addictive.
AMARANTHE recently finished the first leg of their 'THE NEXUS' world tour, an extensive trek throughout the globe in support of their sophomore album. They played all over Europe including Russia, Japan, the USA and some of the world's biggest and most prestigious festivals; Graspop, Sweden Rock festival, Tuska Open Air, Master of Rock etc. The tour kicked off in conjunction with some amazing results with the release of the album; no#1 on the US iTunes metal charts, no# 12 on the Billboard Heatseekers charts, no# 1 on the rock album charts and no 6 on the overall charts in Sweden, no# 1 on the alternative charts and no# 4 on the alternative charts in Finland and so on. While touring in support of 'THE NEXUS', AMARANTHE has received two gold albums for their first two singles in Sweden, 'Hunger' and 'Amaranthine'.
AMARANTHE are now ready to announce the second extensive part of their world tour in support of 'THE NEXUS'; 'THE INVINCIBLE TOUR 2014', and the first dates announced are the European part; AMARANTHE's very first headliner tour in Europe.
