Amaranthe have debuted the song “Drop Dead Cynical” from their new album Massive Addictive, out October 21 on Spinefarm Records. The track the first worldwide taste of the Gothenburg band’s upcoming opus. The song is a perfect indicator of what fans can expect on Massive Addictive — a full-on blast of melody and metallic power. Listen inside:

Commented guitarist Olof Mörck, “The first piece of music to be released from Massive Addictive is a very representative track. ‘Drop Dead Cynical’ is as massive as it is addictive. This ultra groovy song is a markedly different first single compared to classical Amaranthe single choices, and it takes our trademark sound in fresh and exciting new directions! Top that off with an anthemic chorus, and the result is what I consider one of the absolutely strongest Amaranthe songs ever!”

The iTunes pre-order launches today, as well, with “Drop Dead Cynical” offered as an instant grat download.

Additionally, the pre-order includes multiple bundles. The band’s U.S. merch store is here.
