Elize Ryd (Amaranthe)

Interview with Elize Ryd from Amaranthe
by Daniel Fox at 16 October 2016, 11:47 AM

Sweden's AMARANTHE might well be the fastest growing and biggest booming band in the last decade, with few others bands reaching such a quick claim to fame. On 21st October 2016, the band will release their 4th album, "Maximalism"; an electronic-fuelled offering that is, once again, vastly different to the previous.

Metal Temple's Daniel Fox had an informative and bubbly interview with vocalist Elize Ryd. Soon plagued by connection issues, she offered to read out her answers to the rest of the questions appearing on screen. The band's recent foray into Japan was covered, speaking of the drastic cultural differences. New dynamics on the album were also discussed, including its new themes and the upbeat harmonies. Elize expressed her love for Disney; her and Olof's shared love of archetypal Disney scores were somewhat of an influence for the album's closer, "Endlessly". She went on to explore the possibilities of performing in musical theater, and expressed sincere wishes to tour Australia and New Zealand.

Special thanks to Will Bloodfarm of New Zealand bands PRIMACY, REMOTE & FORSAKEN AGE for video/audio editing, and Jon Freeman of Freeman Promotions for setting it up.
