Spring? It has sprung! Well, it probably has somewhere in the world (the UK is presently shivering through the last snowy vestiges of a Winter which has long-since outstayed its welcome), so why not celebrate sunnier times ahead by enjoying the new, sophomore release from Swedish/Danish musical magpies, Amaranthe?
Pop diva hooks, growling harsh vocals, keyboards duking it out for riff-mungous supremacy, drums galloping along – Amaranthe’s sound is rather akin to a bizarre and distinctly pleasurable backstage mix-up at “A Song For Europe” with lots of genres colliding together and making for a pleasingly orthodox metalhead baiting mix of tunes.
For an example of the bonkers fare which awaits you if you pick up this record, why not try out the title track on the Tubes of You?
