Stuck in Denmark for months, away from family and friends, Sweden’s hottest band Amaranthe starts from scratch after coming off a huge tour with Sabaton. Elize Ryd and the rest of the band go back to re-writes and adding a bigger sound and stronger punch to the songs. The result “Manifest” the bands’ career-defining record which sees them going back to their symphonic metal/metalcore roots. Lead Vocalist Elize Ryd spends an-hour with RTFX talking about everything from performing, the pandemic, to podcasts.

You also realize that it be- comes less of trying to be perfect and more of get- ting your emotions out on the record. We were at least able to do what we love to do. We know a lot of musicians were stuck at home and a lot of them were really depressed having all of their tours can- celled. A situation that could have turned out awful actually made the situation much better. "
