Melodic Metal Trailblazers Amaranthe Release “Countdown” Single and Video

With their electrifying fifth album HELIX due out October 19 through Spinefarm Records and armed with new singer Nils Molin, the almighty Amaranthe are taking another leap forward in their sonic evolution.
The band has dropped the video for the new single “Countdown.”
Watch the video, directed by longtime collaborator Patric Ullaeus, below.
“As the days and weeks are getting closer to the release of HELIX, what better way to illustrate our excitement and veritable impatience than by releasing our second single titled ‘Countdown’?,” asked Amaranthe guitarist and composer Olof Mörck. “Drawing upon a darker theme and subject matter than your typical Amaranthe song, the sonic landscape itself forms a perfect counterpoint to this more serious side of the band. The contrasts have perhaps never been stronger, the ambitions never higher, and confidence never more solid – Amaranthe in 2018 in its purest, most distilled form is ‘Countdown.'”
Four albums into their career, Amaranthe have racked up north of 118 million YouTube views and half-a-billion song streams, have landed at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart three times, and possess a panoply of gold and platinum discs for albums and singles alike.
HELIX proves the band has refined its melodic sensibilities ever further while retaining a cutting-edge metal assault. The video and single for “Countdown” once again showcase the band’s unique musical sound and vision.

“My first idol before Michael Jackson was Roxette, I grew up with that kind of music and of course Abba, that’s kind of the mothers milk of music if you are growing up in Sweden”. Amaranthe guitarist Olof Mörck

Amaranthe (originally Avalanche) is a Swedish metal band notable for having three lead vocalists: Elize Ryd, Jake E. Lundberg, and Henrik Englund Wilhemsson, each presenting a different vocal style. Ryd and Lundberg use clean vocals for a dual gender singing effect, combined with Englund’s death growls.

Reviews of Amaranthe’s style are varied, though they all acknowledge that they are mainly a subgenre of metal. According to AllMusic, Amaranthe’s musical style mixes death metal with melodic pop music, giving for a feel of metalcore overall.[Lead singer Elize Ryd acknowledges the difficulties in trying to ascribe their music to one specific genre and describes Amaranthe’s sound as “dance-metal with a taste of death and modern/melodic metal,” though she admits that, unlike death metal, their focus is on “positive energy” and “open[ing] up minds and giving passion, strength and love”. MusicMight classifies the band as melodic death metal and power metal. Sputnikmusic’s overview of the band refers to them as an outfit that is a hybrid of metalcore and power metal, more specifically, combining heavy riffs and breakdowns with Ryd’s “soaring vocals.”
