AMARANTHE Release Remix Of Their Hit Single ‘MAXIMIZE’


Swedish metal outfit Amaranthe have released a remix of their song Maximize. Remixed by upcoming Finnish electronic music producer/ DJ Bliniks, he comments:

“For me heavy metal has been a huge savior in inspiration for the last few years and nowadays I have a massive urge to combine the elements of melodic metal with the heavier side of electronic music. Amaranthe‘s ‘Maximize’ was an amazing experience to remix, because the original was so melodic and uplifting that I already got an amazing idea for a remix after hearing for the first time.

Dubstep is one of my most common genres that I produce and the reason why I decided to go right into the remix with dubstep is because some of the modern dubstep is pretty much inspired by heavy metal, but for some reason that has been somewhat forgotten. This remix also includes some bigroom house and trap elements at the end of the remix, so it’s the most varied remix that I have produced to this day.”

CYHRA REVEAL ALBUM DETAILS + DEBUT FIRST SINGLE ‘KARMA’ (FEATURING EX-MEMBERS OF AMARANTHE, IN FLAMES & ANNIHILATOR)


NEW BAND FEATURING EX-MEMBERS OF AMARANTHE, IN FLAMES & ANNIHILATOR

BAND DEBUTS FIRST SINGLE ‘KARMA’

Cyhra, a new band featuring former Amaranthe singer v. and ex-In Flames guitarist Jesper Strömblad, have revealed details of their forthcoming debut album, ‘Letters To Myself’.

Due for release on October 20th 2017, ‘Letters To Myself’ features plenty of the magic that each member of the band has become known for over the years. From the blissfully melodic thrust of Jesper Strömblad’s riffs and hooks, and the soaring, soulful splendour of Jake E.’s unmistakable voice to the pummelling, groove-driven precision of Peter Iwers, and Alex Landenburg’s rhythmic bedrock, every last moment crackles with the excitement of fresh territory, new challenges and a brand new identity for all involved to embrace.

Formed in 2016 by long-time friends Jake E. and Jesper Strömblad , Cyhra are about to light a fire under the contemporary metal scene that promises to blaze for decades to come.

With former In Flames bassist Peter Iwers plus Alex Landenburg (current drummer with power metal titans Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody and a former member of thrash legends Annihilator) completing the line-up, the buzz around Cyhra has been growing at a rapid rate since the band unveiled their plans earlier this year..

“The excitement that I feel about Cyhra is over the top,” Jake E. exclaims. “I have to pinch myself every day to make sure it’s not just another dream. I am so proud of the music we have created and I can’t wait to show it to the world!”

“For the first time for as long as I can remember, I feel I am a part of something special,” adds Strömblad. “This band has helped me regain my true passion for music. I can’t wait to share this with the world!”

Cyhra plan to tour globally in support of their Spinefarm debut, with their first show scheduled for October 27th 2017 at Nosturi in HelsinkiFinland.

Vocals: Jake E (ex-Amaranthe)
