Amaranthe Release a Video for Their New Single “Find Life”
Ah, Amaranthe. It’s been a while since we proclaimed you released the “best/most annoying pop-metal hit” of 2016, or that Gear Gods had a video about how to sound like you guys. Yes, it’s been a minute since we covered you and your pop-infused, melodic brand of power metal, but . Yet just moments ago, the Swedish band released a poppy, synth-laden track titled “Find Life.”
Right out the bat, the song features a synthy run behind your typical riffage. After a few moments, co-singers Nils Molin and Elize Ryd come in with a pretty poppy, albeit soaring verse and chorus.
Look, it’s not normally my cuppa joe, but I can certainly see the appeal of a band like Amaranthe and a single like “Find Life.” It’s a pretty good song that’s admittedly pretty catchy d the video’s got some evocative imagery to go along with it.
Guitarist Olof Morck said the new track was a conscious effort by the band to try to switch up their style a bit.
“’Find Life’ sees Amaranthe exploring a more somber and mature mood, all while keeping our trademark high energy rhythms and explosive riffs. Ethereal layers of keyboards meld seamlessly with a modern pumping bass line, topped off with some of the greatest vocal performances from vocalists Elize Ryd and Nils Molinyet.
After quite some time we have reunited with video director and longtime Amaranthe collaborator Patric Ullaeus, for a video that is both intimate and explosive. We wanted to scale things down, and focus entirely on the individuals of the band, and Patric delivered as always!”
This new single comes out just as the band is set to kick off its co-headlining European tour with Beyond the Black, with Butcher Babies and Ad Infinitum providing support.
