Six-piece Swedish/Danish outfit genuinely adding something fresh an new to the rock n metal genre.
With three vocalists covering everything from death metal growls to soaring pop metal choruses, Amaranthe have turned heads right from the start; theirs is crushing & contemporary music built from the base up on solid riffs, lush keyboards and massive hooks the latter making full use of the vocal talents of female singer, Elize Ryd (also a touring member of Kamelot).
The bands debut self-titled album, produced by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, etc.) and released in 2011, has seen the six making great strides in the UK, Scandinavia & Japan playing festivals and major headline shows, and generally showing that an Abba-inspired chorus and a powerful guitar riff can work together to telling (and ground-breaking) effect.
