The day has finally come for AMARANTHE to share their declaration to the world: The Swedish metalheroes' most epic album to date, "Manifest", is out today!
So, we come to it at last! We are so very proud and happy to finally unveil 'Manifest' to the world, an album written with so much pure joy and enthusiasm, and yet very nearly did not see the light of day. When faced with the decision to record the album despite a world wide pandemic, the answer was the same as when we canceled tours that were supposed to promote the album: we HAVE to release this album in 2020! As our long-time listeners are well aware of, AMARANTHE believes in positive, energetic and uplifting music, and we feel that such sentiments are more needed than ever before! Easily our most confident and convincing album to date, this is music born out of pure passion and eagerness to create. This is our manifesto, and all our aesthetic aspirations made apparent - this is 'Manifest'.
Order "Manifest" here:
To celebrate the glorious news, the band also releases a stunning music video for 'Fearless' that can be watched here:
AMARANTHE added further:
Fear - perhaps the most primal of instincts and most ancient of proclivities, and yet despite all our recent technological marvels our tendency towards fear only grows. Perhaps the great paradox of our time: we have never been materially safer, yet never more exposed to the ills and misfortunes of our truly global civilisation. This very primal urge is pure currency for both political and financial gain, and the more we give in to fear, the more it enslaves us. However, inside each and every one of us there is also courage, conviction and determination. It is in the face of adversity that we grow the strongest - so heed your inner warrior, pay homage to bravery - and transform into the 'Fearless'!
"Manifest" is be available as CD, media book with four bonus tracks, media book bundle with patch (limited to 250 units, mailorder exclusive), Gold Vinyl (limited to 300 units, mailorder + wholesale exclusive), Blue/Black Marbled Vinyl (limited to 300 units, EMP exclusive), Cyan Vinyl (NB USA exclusive) as well as six individual band member Vinyls (limited to 150 units each, worldwide bandshop exclusive).
Each vinyl color was personally selected by the single band members and is a bold statement for which value is the most important to them: Creativity, independence, prudence, cleverness, single-mindeddess and composure. All together, these values are the foundation to overcome obstacles and face difficult and uncertain situations. To symbolize that, every vinyl comes with a "hero card" corresponding with the band member and their personally picked value. When all six cards are united, they form the album cover for "Manifest". The colours include:
Red w/ Gold Splatter (Olof)
Clear w/ Red Splatter (Elize) *Sold Out*
Green w/ Black Splatter (GG6)
White w/ Blue Splatter (Nils)
Pink w/ Green Splatter (Johan)
