After recently delivering the official anthem for the Swedish team at the international e-sports world championship, Amaranthe now follow up with level two and have unveiled a music video for their latest single ‘PvP‘.
Directed by none other than Poland’s Grupa13, who previously worked with the band on ‘Archangel‘ and ‘BOOM!1‘, the video is a colourful and uplifting way to end another blunt year of the pandemic.

Order the band’s latest album Manifest here:
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 have 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 album that Amaranthe have released to date. The perfect antidote to the nagging anxieties plaguing us all in these troubled times, it’s a technicolour celebration of metal’s ageless power, blazing with all of life’s colours and chaos, but delivered with utmost artistry and skill.
