AMARANTHE Begins Recording Fifth Album

AMARANTHE Begins Recording Fifth Album

Swedish melodic metallers AMARANTHE have entered Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark with producer Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, EPICA, DELAIN) to begin recording their fifth album, due later in the year. The follow-up to 2016's "Maximalism" will mark the band's first release with DYNAZTY's Nils Molin, who officially joined AMARANTHE in July 2017 as the replacement for Jake E.

Having previously used Chris Adam Hedman Sörbye from the band SMASH INTO PIECES as a stand-in for Jake on some of the shows in 2016 and in early 2017, AMARANTHE recruited Molin for three Swedish concerts in March 2017 and he has been part of the group's live appearances ever since.

Jake E announced his departure from AMARANTHE in February 2017, explaining at the time that he began to feel that "my place both on the albums and live was reduced; I felt like I was superfluous… I started to feel more like a backing singer." He has since launched a new band called CYHRA with former IN FLAMES members Peter Iwers (bass) and Jesper Strömblad (guitar) alongside LUCA TURILLI'S RHAPSODY drummer Alex Landenburg.

In a 2016 interview with, AMARANTHE singer Elize Ryd said that the recording process for "Maximalism" was "a little different from the previous ones because we actually had time to sit down and think a lot about how we could make some changes in the sound without changing too much, of course. We were playing around a lot with new keyboards and worked on a list of things that we like that we had not used yet on the previous albums. This was an opportunity for us to get a little bit more diverse. I think that is exactly what this album represents. We wanted to maximize our sound and ourselves as human beings. It is also a little bit more organic."
