Amaranthe guitarist Olof Mork reveals: “So, the time has finally come to let loose ‘The Nexus’ upon an unsuspecting world! This time we went all the way with our futuristic dream-nightmare – a no compromise vision steeped in deep contrast between the mechanically ultra heavy and shimmering serene melody. ‘The Nexus’ is everything we dreamed about doing with our debut album ‘Amaranthe’, but had not yet attained the right sensibility of perfection to realise. We laboured to make this offering as diverse as it is direct and catchy, and not we leave it up to you experience it yourself. Because, unfortunately no-one can be told what ‘The Nexus’ is – you have to hear it for yourself”
The video for ‘The Nexus’ was directed by Patric Ullaeus whose previous creditds include In Flames, Arch Enemy and Enslaved. Olof explains: “Our main inspiration behind the video was to create a decidedly cinematic feel, in the vein of a Hollywood action movie, with a slightly darker angle than our previous videos. We wanted to have lots of extras and explosive action scenes, and we wanted it to be done well; we knew Patric Ullaeus was the right man for the job. The end result is a dynamic, intense and entertaining music video with an original flair.”
