This song surely gave the one or another listener goosebumps when being performed on one of AMARANTHE‘s breathtaking liveshows, 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 are 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 the emotions and harmonies carried by the orchestral elements can be truely 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.
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, 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 colours and chaos, but delivered with utmost artistry and skill.
