Amaranthe Debuts Video For Its Cover Of Sabaton’s ’82nd All The Way’

Amaranthe debuted a new video this week.

The band debuted the video for its cover of Sabaton’s song ‘82nd All The Way‘ Friday.  ’82nd All The Way’ is featured in Sabaton’s latest full-length studio recording The Great War (2019).  Amaranthe’s video takes audiences inside the studio with the band as it performs its take on the song, complete with a new triple-vocal approach.  That new approach sets the song apart from its source material and in turn steps up the song.

Amaranthe guitarist Olof Morck talked about the band’s take of the song in a recent interview.

“People who are familiar with Amaranthe know that we do not frequently do covers, but there was something quite irresistible about interpreting Sabaton’s ’82nd All The Way’!,” he said.  “While being thematically different from most of our songs, musically it made perfect sense, and it was a joy to pick the song apart and put it back together to something classically Amaranthe sounding!  So, this is our small tribute to the mighty Swedish war machine that is Sabaton; ’82nd All The Way’!”

Amaranthe will join Sabaton on the road beginning Jan 17 in Zurich, Switzerland.  Apocalyptica will also take part in the tour.

Amaranthe’s performances are in support of its most recent album Helix (2018).  The album has spawned the singles ‘365,’ ‘Countdown,’ ‘Inferno,’ ‘Dream‘ and ‘Helix.’ Amaranthe’s upcoming dates with Sabaton and Apocalyptica are scheduled to run through Feb. 16 in Oslo, Norway. The full schedule for the band’s European tour is noted below.
