Melodic Metal Trailblazers Amaranthe Release “Countdown” Single + Video

New Studio Album Helix Out October 19Th Via Spinefarm Records

New 2019 UK Dates Announced W/Powerwolf


“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‘? Drawing upon a darker theme and subject matter than your typical AMARANTHE song. The contrasts have perhaps never been stronger, the ambitions never higher, and confidence never more solid – AMARANTHE in 2018 in its purest form is ‘Countdown‘.” – Amaranthe guitarist and composer, Olof Mörck.

Four albums into their career, Amaranthe have racked up north of 118 million YouTube views and half-a-billion song streams; they’ve landed at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart three times and possess a multitude of gold and platinum discs for albums & singles alike.

With their electrifying fifth album HELIX due out October 19 through Spinefarm Records and armed with new singer Nils Molin, Amaranthe take another leap forward in their sonic evolution.
