AMARANTHE release profound music video for 'Crystalline'

If you like a bit of heavy-metal influence with your pop music, then you are going to love Stockholm's AMARANTHE. The quartet has released their new single 'Crystalline', taken from the upcoming album 'Maximalism'. This marks a significant turn into a more ambitious and expansive sound that incorporates all of their previous elements into a unique blending of genres.

'Crystalline' lyrics:

My precious faith got lost and found

Still thinking of you

It is engraved in fallen vines

Still linger with you


I didn't break, I didn't change

I didn't close my heart

Will we ever see, will we ever learn

What is real and what is true?


I can hear you

You are afar

But I know my heart is crystalline

Don't fall down now

This is a start

And I know your heart is crystalline


I cannot wait, been long enough

Still burning for you

When will I be forever locked

Inside of your heart


I'm not afraid, have no regrets

I am prepared to dive

Into your world, where I belong

That is real and that is true


I can hear you

You are afar

But I know my heart is crystalline

Don't fall down now

This is a start

And I know your heart is crystalline


I can hear you

You are afar

And I know your heart

I can hear you

You are afar

But I know my heart is crystalline

Don't fall down now

This is a start

And I know your heart

I can hear you

You are afar

But I know my heart is crystalline

Don't fall down now

This is a start

And I know your heart is crystalline

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.

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.

In October and November of 2022, AMARANTHE will be on tour together with BEYOND THE BLACK. Since the tour had to be postponed, both bands can't wait to hit the road again and spend unforgettable nights with their fans all around Europe! Furthermore, both BUTCHER BABIES and AD INFINITUM will join the tour as special guests.
