Amaranthe have shared details of a new album. Their fifth album “Helix” will be released on October 19 via Spinefarm Records. It’s the first Amaranthe studio album with vocalist Nils Molin, who replaced Jake E and officially joined the band in July 2018. The album was recorded at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark with producer Jacob Hansen (Epica, Delain).
“Helix” proves the band has refined its melodic sensibilities ever further while retaining a cutting-edge metal assault. The band is as massively aggressive as ever and the first single “365” is the perfect example of such — its seductively velvety mix of contemporary pop and modern metal will take up residence in your brain for days.
Guitarist Olof Mörck commented: “The ‘Helix’ album itself is a statement, a declaration and an assertion that we are here to stay, and that the songwriting and musicianship has been honed and maximized to the highest level yet on an Amaranthe record. The process of composing this album with Elize [Ryd] was as inspiring as it was smooth, and from a composer’s and arranger’s perspective, a dream collaboration. The time is nigh, the die is cast, and all the stars are right: the ‘Helix’ will steamroll across the globe, and in its wake, the touring machine that is Amaranthe will conquer all!”
