Amaranthe‘s Manifest will be out in two weeks, on October 2nd. Now they’ve launched “Archangel”, the third single and video from their upcoming album. The clip was directed by Grupa 13.
Commented the band:
“Fire and brimstone! Savour the sweet scent of sulphur as Amaranthe delves deep into Miltonian lore with “Archangel”! An ancient tale of the fall of the angel Lucifer Morningstar was interpreted as a Greek tragedy in John Milton’s seminal ‘Paradise Lost’ and it is from this perspective we tell a brief yet momentous story of greed, betrayal and overblown pride – an all too familiar and contemporary theme. Amaranthe’s first collaboration with Poland’s visual grandmasters Grupa 13 took us from abandoned and ghastly factory halls in Wrocław to the derelict ruins of Świny Castle among the Polish mountains. Light up your incense, fill your goblet and delight in a darker shade of Amaranthe!”
