AMARANTHE Release Single “Make It Better” Feat. Jennifer Haben

A few weeks ago, Swedish modern metal sensation AMARANTHE began to release a series of very special interpretations of songs from their 2020 hit album, Manifest.Today, the band are proud to present the latest and final entry in this sequence of unique singles: a new version of the song “Make It Better” which now features BEYOND THE BLACK‘s Jennifer Haben on guest vocals. Please check out this new rendition below.

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-vocalist, 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 have 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.

Throughout this October and November, AMARANTHE will be on tour with BEYOND THE BLACK. Since these dates had been previously postponed, both bands can’t wait to hit the road again and spend some unforgettable nights with their fans across Europe! Furthermore, both BUTCHER BABIES and AD INFINITUM will join the tour as special guests.

AMARANTHE Release Cinematic Version Of “Strong” As New Single

Swedish metal heroes AMARANTHE continue to showcase their versatility and eclectic musical taste. After having released a beautiful orchestral version of their power ballad “Crystalline” and a flamenco-tinged acoustic rendition of their banger “Adrenaline” they are now following up with a “cinematic” version of their hit single “Strong” on which – again – the heavy guitars make way for atmospheric synth layers and orchestral arrangements, giving the song a more laid-back and at the same time very enchanting theatrical feel. You can check out this new interpretation below.

AMARANTHE comment:
“One of the true high points of the MANIFEST sessions was creating the bonus tracks – after being incredibly happy with the final mix of the main album, we still had an influx of creative energy left in us. The cinematic version of ‘Strong’ was born from just such a momentum, as we wanted to display a totally different side of the song, as well are our own musical output. We truly hope that you will enjoy this different and very epic side of AMARANTHE!”

AMARANTHE Release Fiery Acoustic Version Of “Adrenaline”

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.

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 favourite bonus track we have done so far! Enjoy!”

In October and November of 2022, AMARANTHE will be on tour together with BEYOND THE BLACK. Since the tour had to be postponed, both bands can’t wait to hit the road again and spend unforgettable nights with their fans all around Europe!

AMARANTHE Release Beautifully Orchestrated Version Of “Crystalline”

This song surely gave the one or another listener goosebumps when being performed on one of AMARANTHE‘s breathtaking live shows, and now a transition of the feelings has been created by releasing a remarkable music video for “Crystalline”.

The majestic interplay of orchestral arrangements and in turn distorted guitars is visually underlined in the new stunning music video and not least by the vocal performance between Elize Ryd and Nils Molin


By releasing this music video AMARANTHE is taking the anthem to a new level which lets the song resurrect, supported by the passion and the emotions which can now also be transferred visually. 

AMARANTHE comment on the new video:
“‘Crystalline’ was a song born from pure emotions in the moment, and we felt that it truly deserved its own spotlight as a single together with a video. Shot at Rydzyna, a 17th-century Château outside of Wrocław, Poland, long-time collaborators Grupa13 once again worked their visual magic for the video. We hope you will love the result just as much as we do!”

As if that wasn’t enough, the song celebrates a rebirth – and is now released as “Crystalline (Orchestral Version)”which differs not only in sound but also in the emotions and harmonies carried by the orchestral elements can be truly felt. The newly arranged orchestral version is released along with the original version of the song since the original version can be heard in the new music video.
