Amaranthe Officially Tap Dynazty’s Nils Molin to Replace Jake E.
In November of last year, Amaranthe co-vocalist Jake E. revealed he would be taking a break from the group, ultimately stepping away permanently three months later. The band has been searching for the singer's successor and have just named Dynazty's Nils Molin as their newest member.
Guitarist Olof Mörck commented, "Great news! The Amaranthe lineup is once again complete — and what an addition Nils Molin is! He was at the very top of the list for the male vocals position, and has already proved his worth on a number of shows with Amaranthe across Europe. Nils is a born rock star in every aspect yet with a natural sense of humility and is certain to leave no fan disappointed! He has gathered a vast amount of experience together with Dynazty and as such has honed his performance skills to perfection; since stepping in he is already a natural part of the lineup. Catch Nils on our upcoming European tour, or any of the planned shows for 2017 — and expect great things to come out of this soon!"
As the axeman stated, Molin has plenty of experience behind the mic having served served as Dynazty's lone frontman since their inception in 2007. He has five studio albums to his credit with the Swedish power metal outfit and will surely expand his résumé when it comes time for Amaranthe to begin work on their follow-up to 2016's Maximalism.
Meanwhile, Jake E. has already started his next musical journey, teaming up with In Flames alumni Jesper Strömblad (guitar) and Peter Iwers (bass) in CyHra. "You can hear that CyHra is metal but over the eight years that I was with Amaranthe, I became really inspired by bands like Bring Me the Horizon, 30 Seconds To Mars, Sixx:A.M.and bands like that. There are heavy guitars, heavy drums, heavy bass, but you also have a bit more of this melancholic feeling in some of the CyHra songs," Jake E. said about the band's sound.
