MASSIVE. MODERN. METAL!
These are the voyages of the visionary band, AMARANTHE.
Their ultimate mission: to explore the opaque realms between extreme metal and electronic tunes, to pioneer the invention of new approaches of joining two traditionally contradicting musical worlds, to boldly go where no metal band has gone before!
Evolution requires visionaries. One of the biggest bangs of the modern metal universe happened in 2011, when the band released their eponymous debut album on Spinefarm Records to worldwide acclaim, charting high in the band's Nordic regions. Right off the bat, tapping into the vein of the digital music revolution, AMARANTHE became a top-100 most played album on Spotify WORLDWIDE - all genres included.
After many blistering live shows in support of their debut, AMARANTHE returned to their creative home, Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark where the magic of the debut album was originally bottled. The Nexus album, released in 2013, was followed by a longer tour, more and higher chart entries including a #12 position on the U.S. Billboard Heatseekers chart. The band’s career was now officially on an upward trajectory.
Wasting no time, the band returned to concoct another potion of power. Consequently, in 2014, Spinefarm released the 3rd album, Massive Addictive. Another step of progress both musically and commercially, the album charted in six countries, most notably claiming the band’s 1st pole-position on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The album also yielded their first major single hit with “Drop Dead Cynical”, which spent several weeks at the top of the Sirius XM Octane channel's playlist, and had massive airplay all around the world.
One of the hardest working bands in the genre, the band released their 4th album, Maximalism in 2016. The album charted everywhere, taking home another #1 position on Billboard Heatseekers, plus a Top 100 Billboard position.
Four albums into their career, AMARANTHE have racked up north of 118 million YouTube views, half a billion song streams, are the two-time holders of Billboard's Heatseekers #1 chart position, and now possess a panoply of Gold-certified discs for both albums and singles alike.
With their electrifying 5th album, Helix, the band take yet another leap in their sonic evolution. Their most focused work to date, the album proves the band has refined their melodic sensibilities ever further whilst retaining their cutting-edge metal assault as massively aggressive as ever, beginning with the first single, "365"and its seductively-velvet mix of contemporary sounds and modern Metal.
Once again a quantum leap ahead of their peers, AMARANTHE aces everything they do. Now, armed with a new album, AMARANTHE is ready to tear down the walls of musical separation. Get ready for a sonic revolution!
