There’s no rest for the wicked! After releasing a beautiful orchestral version of their power ballad “Crystalline”, Swedish metal heroes AMARANTHE turn up the heat and deliver a spicy variation of “Adrenaline”. “Adrenalina” transforms the modern metal anthem into a seductive summer hit featuring new Spanish lyrics and virtuoso acoustic guitar pickings.HERE or in the video below.AMARANTHE comment on “Adrenalina”: “At the very tail end of the ‘Manifest’ sessions, we were looking into the traditional bonus tracks and wanted to do something special for these ones. ‘Adrenaline’ already had a slightly latin sounding C-part, and after breaking out the classical guitar and a glass of Rioja, the flamenco vibes were filling the studio. The result is ‘Adrenalina’, and it might very well be our own favorite bonus track we have done so far! Enjoy!” Stream the single ‘Adrenalina (Acoustic Version)’
AMARANTHE have spent the last decade establishing themselves as a formidable, positive, and fervently melodic force for metallic good. From their explosive self-titled debut in 2011 to the more sophisticated, streamlined likes of 2014’s “Massive Addictive” and its immaculate follow-up “Maximalism” (2016), AMARANTHE has masterfully blurred the lines between melodic metal, crushing brutality, cinematic sweep, and futuristic sparkle. Led by the endlessly ingenious songwriting of guitarist Olof Mörck and powerhouse vocalist Elize Ryd, their rise to prominence has been a joy to behold.
Widely acclaimed as a dazzling live act, the Swedes reached a new peak of creativity on 2018’s hugely successful “Helix:” an album that pushed the band’s vision to new heights, breadths, and depths, while showcasing the brilliance of Elize and her co-vocalists, Henrik Englund Wilhelmsson and recent recruit Nils Molin. Not just a glorious return but a wholesale upgrade for their exuberant sound, “Manifest” is simply the most daring, dynamic, and unforgettable album that AMARANTHE has released to date. The perfect antidote to the nagging anxieties plaguing us all in these troubled times, it’s a Technicolor celebration of metal’s ageless power, blazing with all of life’s colors and chaos, but delivered with utmost artistry and skill.
