Amaranthe - Massive Addictive

Amaranthe appeared a few years ago as a rather interesting proposition with their triple pronged vocals, which were and still are very much spearheaded by the delectable miss Elize Ryd, who in the meantime has done a lot more respectable singing than she has in her main band in other projects and in Kamelot. They were always mixing metal riffs with poppy hooks, and some fake aggressive parts. Part, Linkin Park, Part In Flames, Part Nightwish... their first album, was pretty good and had some quite inspired moments, good solid songwriting, melodies, good performances.
