Ah, here we are - yet another band to seemingly pop up from the ground and gain mainstream attention from the get go. But Amaranthe aren't your typical bog-standard metal band - far from it in fact. For a start they have three vocalists. One female singer, one male singer and one male 'grunter' (please, don't let that phrase turn you away if you're uninterested in that kind of vocal - it's quite limited). I'd go as far as to say the music is similar to Soilwork, i.e chuggy riffs, but heavily synthed, in such a way your female friends will be dancing to each song like there's no tomorrow, and your male friends will be headbanging throughout repeat listens. I kid you not when I say this album holds the catchiest choruses known to man, you've no choice but to nod your head and grin, feeling that same adrenaline rush you had when you heard your first Iron Maiden song. Amaranthe are one of those rare bands which you can't dump under a certain genre name; they stand alone. It's like a Soilwork / Gamma Ray crossover with a pinch of Killswitch Engage and a dollop of Symphony X style synths to top it all off. Anyone who's anyone will know most metal bands with a female member has a drop dead gorgeous female member and Elize Ryd is a woman who holds hard competition. Check out their video for 'Hunger' - you'll have not one doubt of purchasing this album and becoming a fan, I guarantee you.

I bought this album knowing nothing about the band or even heard of them, and am very pleased i did. Not sure what category i would class them in, but they are definitley melodic and fast, if not overly heavy with a very european sound. Its quite unusual to have three quality vocalists (two male, one female) in a band, and it works very well. If you think along the lines of Sonic Syndicate, your not too far off. You get the throaty growls with crisp vocals that blend into perfect melodies. The majority of the songs are very up tempo, and include chunky guitar riffs with lots of double bass drumming with a good amount of electronics / keyboards thrown in for good measure. The whole album is very easy to listen to and i would higly recommend giving it a go.

Stand out tracks for me are 'Leave Everything Behind' and 'Automatic'.

For fans of: Sonic Syndicate, In Flames, Evanescence, Lacuna Coil.

This is yet another band that I came across by "accident", probably due to links created by listening to, viewing, etc. other music and songs that I am currently in to. Initially, I had my doubts about buying the album because, recently, I have been listening to bands which are slightly less "heavy" and more focused on the power/progressive genre. However, whilst this album definately has its heavy elements, it is very melodic and pleasing on the ear. Every song is catchy and has a very strong and memorable chorus that is built up to by some very powerful and epic bridges. In fact, in a nutshell, the whole album is powerful and epic and that would be a great way of describing it.

It is hard to say exactly what genre of metal this album fits in to. Perhaps it doesn't matter, that's all politics anyway. This album is simply very very good metal and, whilst it clearly has its influences from other genres (perhaps even pop music), it all works so well that those "politics" are easily forgotten about.

The mixture of the three singer's voices is interesting, different, but most of all it actually works really really well. The tender (but not weak) female voice, the more commercial-sounding male voice, and the other male voice providing background grunts all merge perfectly. That, with the epic power/progressive metal music throughout, make for one fantastic debut album. This is very very impressive stuff, and this is one band to keep an eye out for because, quite simply, they have potential to be way up there in the power/melodic/progressive metal arena.

For a first Album since being forced to change there name this Is somewhat of a triumph for AMARANTHE, headed up by some very tight playing and of course the lovely Elize Ryd whose singing easily rivals Amy Lee's of EVANESCENSE, but not Sharon Van Adel's of WITHIN TEMPTATION. If there Is one small critisism they seem to overdo the death grunting, however that aside I look forward to the next album

Just played this album for the 1st time after buying it on impulse because of the great reviews i'd read. It was money well spent as i got into the music as soon as it started playing, love the vocals especially on Amaranthine. A great debut album & will be adding more Amaranthe cd's to my collection.

More of the same from a very good Swedish Band. They have yet to release a track I don't like and I can't stop listening to both albums - an interesting blend of pop and metal that produces really uplifting lively music

I bought this after listening to the samples for the album.

Nice compliment of vocal styles ranging from male growls, male vocals and excellent female vocals that make all the songs on there listenable to, instead of with some albums you in time dismiss a few to listen to your faves.

The style and content reminds me of the heyday of 80`s rock which in my mind can only be a good thing.
