AMARANTHE Release New Album “The Catalyst” + Drop Music Video For Title Song


Today Sweden’s masters of thunderous, melodic futurism, AMARANTHE, release their highly anticipated album “The Catalyst” via Nuclear Blast Records. Along with the album release, a music video has dropped for the title track. Watch it here:

The band states: “The proverbial eagle has landed! After a few years of hard toil, swea,t and at least a small amount of blood, we are enormously proud and downright electrified to know that our newborn and latest album – The Catalyst is available worldwide! This has truly been a journey of pure passion and creative experimentation, along with a dose of soul-searching for good measure. We hope that you will find it to your taste, and if you do – don’t forget to stop by The Catalyst World Tour when it hits a town near YOU!” 

Order your copy of “The Catalyst” now:

“The Catalyst” is the most conceptually coherent piece of work in AMARANTHE’s storied history. Dedicated to notions of transformation and revelation, it delves deeper than any previous album, as Olof Mörck explains.

“We’ve done these things before, but we’ve never been as theatrical as we have this time,” Mörck grins. “In fact, we all questioned whether we went too far this time, but I also figured that this band was always this way. Literally, the first seconds of our first video was a big explosion! But yes, The Catalyst is more theatrical than ever. We’ve never really been symphonic or orchestral before, but this time we just thought why not? Because we can! The key to this album is that we let go of the boundaries and decided to do something even more adventurous.”

“The Catalyst” represents the culmination of 15 years of hard work and the breathless pursuit of a wholly original musical vision. Change is inevitable. Victory is assured.
