I'm not sure why I like this band but I definitely do...
on 10 May 2014
Amaranthe are a Swedish/Danish band that plays a bizarre combination of melodic death metal, power metal and (somewhat controversially) pop and techno melodies, with three vocalists: Andreas Solveström (now replaced by Henrik Englund), who performs harsh vocals, Jake E, who provides clean male vocals, and the uber-talented Elize Ryd, who performs clean female vocals. I can honestly not say why I like them, as I hate most electronica and pop music, but having seen Amaranthe live recently can safely say that they are an amazing band, and I would recommend any metal fan to give them a listen, and you may find yourself surprised (stand out tracks include the title track 'The Nexus,' 'Stardust,' 'Electroheart,' and my personal favourite 'Afterlife').
