Amaranthe - To Enter Studio In September

Swedish melodic metallers Amaranthe (featuring Dragonland, Dreamland, Nightrage and Mercenary members) are set to record the band's second full-length release. The band will enter the studio on September 24th to record the as of yet unnamed record and follow-up to the 2011 self-titled release for Spinefarm Records. The band will work again with producer Jacob Hansen in his Hansen studios in Ribe, Denmark and the album is set for a tentative early 2013 release.

Guitarist Olof Mörck commented: "So it is finally revelation time! In between our constant and never-ending touring we have tirelessly been working on our next album, which is really starting to come together. We have lived and breathed the same 12 songs from the first album every day for a year now, and to introduce a number of completely fresh tracks will really lift Amaranthe to the next level! The theme and atmosphere of the album is futuristic and ultra modern, something underlined by the first teaser poster. The music itself will be instantly recognisable as Amaranthe, but there is definitely a new and unique twist to the songs. People often ask us if there is a big pressure to follow up such a successful album, and always say 'no, not one bit'. Not when you sit down and listen to new tracks such as "Invincible", "Burn With Me" and "Stardust". We simply cannot wait to hit the road all over the world with these new babies!"

I'm happy. I love their first album and hope this one will be at least as good and maybe even better.

Yay! LOVE Amaranthe! Now, if they just went on a US tour, and came to Detroit in particular, I'd be perfectly content! Already saw Elize with Kamelot on their Pandemonium Over North America Tour last fall. Apparently she's touring with them and Nightwish for this fall I'll bee seeing her again next month! = )
