Swedish/Danish melodic metal band Amaranthe has released a new song entitled “Mechanical Illusion”, which you can stream below. The song comes from the band’s upcoming sophomore album The Nexus, which will be released in the US on Mar. 26th via Spinefarm Records.
Guitarist/composer Olof Mörck comments, “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!”
You can also watch the band’s video for “The Nexus”, which was directed by Patric Ullaeus (In Flames, Soen, Dimmu Borgir), below.
