Amaranthe

Yeah I did listen to some of their tunes last night. Strange one, kinda power metal with some cheesy euro-vision choruses, not to mention some obvious use of autotune. Not surprised the scandi's love this, but they're not exactly Nightwish are they? (before they decended into ridiculous film soundtracks) I'm intrigued enough to order this one though, so thanks for the post...

This album is better than the last Nightwish album tho ;-)

 

Yeah, it is what it is....but there are some good hooks.

Yeah and I like the aggressive vocals combined with the cheesy choruses. It's definitely better than the latest Nightwish, but then that is like the soundtrack to a kids fairy tale rather than a metal album. Look forward to getting it through the post....

They have been massive in Sweden since the album was released. The most funny part is that people here in Sweden that says that they are real "Hardrockers" and can´t stand MHR because they think it´s cheesy really like Amaranthe and think they are so much more hard rock since they have a lad that´s crowling and a clean hardrock voice. It would have just been enough to have the clean vocals and the girl, but than they would have been so popular. Their choruses are even cheesier than they were in Euro disco of the nineties.

 

I actually can´t stand this band, although hunger is a great song. It is so commersial, It´s like putting a kind of boyband together just to sell loads of albums. Why bother to have a growler in there? Just so it would appeal to people who just can´t stand anything else than hard music. Hell it´s even more poppier than ABBA. They have been in other harder bands earlier like Dreamland, Dragonland, Cipher System.

 

Sorry about that lads. Just my two.... Sometimes you really get it out of your system ;)

 

Here is another band in the sort of same league. They were in the Eurovision qualifying race here in SWeden together with Dynazty. They made it to the final and Dynazty didn´t.

Songs from The singer Jake´s old band Dreamland which I think is better:

Thanks, will check out the other bands. Amaranthe definitely have some cheesy choruses going on there, but then a lot of the other swedish melodic death metal bands do too (Sonic Syndicate, Scar Symmetry etc). Frankly they're definitely not as good as those 2 bands, talent-wise, but they still sound pretty okay to me...

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?   
    • The boy who cried... "hallowed be thy name".
    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound! Watch the video "Distance Between us":    
    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
