The new super group Amaranthe from Göteborg has everything a newcomer needs. What had already perfectly worked out on their debut album "Amaranthe" works of course just as well with album no. 2 "The Nexus" by the Danish/Swedish band. Much Melodic Death Metal, a good portion of Power Metal including Keyboards, a touch of Metalcore, catchy Pop refrains like hardly any other band manages to perform, the distinctive three-voice vocals (growls, clean + female vocalist) and a plenty of staccato riffs ensuring a nice groove.

Of Amaranthe's three albums to date, The Nexus is my favourite. It's packed with big melodies and catchy hooks. And refreshing to hear something in the metal world that isn't all anger and negativity. Elyze Ryd sounds fantastic on tracks like Invincible and Burn With Me. Yeah, there's pop in their mix, but don't fear the hooks. Embrace them.
