Amaranthe/Beyond The Black: Two UK co-headline shows

In October just gone, Amaranthe released their killer new studio album Manifest via Nuclear Blast – their most daring, dynamic and unforgettable record to date, showing a versatile band at the top of their game. In celebration, the Swedish sextet are pleased to announce two UK co-headline shows for January 2022, with German symphonic metallers Beyond The Black.

Amaranthe’s Olof Mörck commented, “Our show together with Sabaton at Wembley in London last year was one of the very last before the lockdowns, and with such a phenomenal experience and reception we are looking forward beyond words to these two shows in the UK! With a package loaded with a full evening of energising melodic metal you are sure to forget restrictions ever existed! See you soon UK!”

Tickets will go on-sale this Friday 12th March @ 10am GMT, via this LINK.

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 technicolor celebration of metal’s ageless power, blazing with all of life’s colours and chaos, but delivered with utmost artistry and skill.
