Amaranthe - Manifest Colored Vinyl LP
Amaranthe Manifest Colored Vinyl LP
Recorded in Denmark with long-time collaborator Jacob Hansen, Manifest is an album of multiple moods and textures, of immense power and aggression, and of exquisite beauty. That bold blending of disparate elements has always been part of the Amaranthe ethos, but on their sixth album, the band exhibit an enhanced sense of lyrical and conceptual substance.
With songs touching upon everything from looming climate disaster to theistic mythology, Olof and Elize have truly blossomed as commentators on mankind's trials and tribulations. These are exciting, meticulously crafted future-metal anthems, custom-built to make heads bang, but underpinned by a profound sense of humanity and emotional honesty. As with preview single "Do Or Die" – released on Valentine's Day 2020, and featuring the legendary Angela Gossow – Manifest is a record that owes as much to the real world as it does to fantasy and escapism.
Surprisingly, perhaps, Amaranthe – whose line-up is completed by bassist Johan Andreassen and drummer Morten Løwe Sørensen - are also about to unveil their most unashamedly malevolent and none-more-metal lyric to date. 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.
