Swedish hard rock/metal band Amaranthe are gearing up to release their sophomore album The Nexus, which was produced by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Dreamshade & Ginger Wildheart). The album will be released Mar. 26th in the States via Spinefarm Records.
Guitarist Olof Morck states, “The moment has come to let loose The Nexus on an unsuspecting world! This time we went all the way with our futuristic dream-nightmare – a no-compromise vision steeped in deep contrast between the mechanically ultra-heavy and shimmering serene melody. The Nexus is everything we dreamed about doing with our debut album; we laboured to make this offering as diverse as it is direct and catchy… and remember, no-one can be told what The Nexus is – you have to hear it for yourself!”
You can watch a video for their title track, which was directed by Patric Ullaeus (In Flames, Dimmu Borgir), below.
Olof also states, “We wanted the new video to have a decidedly cinematic feel, in the vein of a Hollywood action movie, with a slightly darker angle than our previous promos. We wanted lots of extras & explosive action scenes, and we knew that Patric was just the man for the job!”
