A mere week after premiering the brand new song “Drop Dead Cynical,” the first sonic taste of the new album Massive Addictive, due out October 21 via Spinefarm Records, Amaranthe have followed up by debuting the accompanying and thoroughly majestic video for the song. It’s epic and visually arresting. Seriously, this is one video you do not want to miss because it is over the top in all the right ways. There’s more than a dozen MMA fighters, cheerleaders and lots and lots of pyro. That all adds up to one helluva an Amaranthe experience. Watch the video inside.
The band once again teamed with director Patric Ullaeus for this visual spectacle. And trust us. It is a spectacle.
“We can now finally unleash the ‘Drop Dead Cynical’ video, directed by master director Patric Ullaeus,” Amaranthe guitarist Olof Mörck said. “It is energetic, bombastic and explosive, just like you have come to expect from Amaranthe’s videos, and the powerful delivery of the song is accentuated by the martial combat throughout the video. As always, you are in for a visual treat; more than 15 MMA fighters, cheerleaders and enough flames to light the heavens on fire! Get ready to be entertained!”
In other Amaranthe news, the band will be touring and bringing their glorious melodic metal to North America this fall. View dates here.
