Featured below is a collection of videos from this week’s AMPED Artist Of The Week, Swedish/Danish power/melodic death metal band, Amaranthe. The collection includes some of the band’s biggest hits, including their latest singles, ‘Drop Dead Cynical’ and ‘Trinity’ from their latest acclaimed album, ‘Massive Addictive.’
Despite being released just one year after 2013′s, ‘The Nexus,’ ‘Massive Addictive’ represents an evolution of Amaranthe’s sound. As well featuring the band’s trademark blend of metal and pop, the album features contemporary influences never used before in Amaranthe songs, including breakdowns, dubstep, voice studders and delays.
All Axess recently caught up with Amaranthe vocalist Jake E to discuss the band’s new album and sound as well as to find out their biggest influences and when they plan to return to the states. You can check out that interview here.
