With their foundations tracing back to 2008, the group have released 5 albums since then (2011’s Amaranthe, 2013’s The Nexus, 2014’s Massive Addictive, 2016’s Maximalism, and 2018’s Helix), consistently delivering hauntingly catchy tunes led by their unique three-part vocals. Within their arsenal of hit singles – with ‘Drop Dead Cynical’ leading right at the front – a myriad tracks have been received very well via press and fans alike; having also gained countless plays on both radio stations around the globe and across streaming services (the group’s songs have been streamed more than 100 million times on Spotify). A string of support tours have blazed AMARANTHE’s trail in front of huge crowds as well as at their own headline concerts (the group impressively once performed in front of 10,000 fans at Liseberg, Gothenburg). They have kept working incredibly hard over the years, the latest product of which culminated in the form of Helix, which achieved them some of their highest chart positions in the band’s history (Switzerland #21, Germany #29 etc.).

Before AMARANTHE enter the studio once again, the sextet will embark on their Scandinavian Helix tour in November 2019, followed by a support tour with Swedish metal giants SABATON alongside Finnish cello metallers APOCALYPTICA set to take place early next year (incl. 5 recently unveiled headline dates in between).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve enjoyed Amaranthe since I first heard them a number of years ago and not only did I manage to catch their first NYC performance ever – I also witnessed their singer Elize performing with Kamelot during one of their tours which was awesome. I’ve always tried to keep pace with them if they are doing anything here and their concerts are always a good time. Then there is Battle Beast who seem to be a continually rising star that more of you need to start paying attention to. It’s been a few years since I’ve caught Amaranthe but it was only a couple of weeks ago that I saw Battle Beast. Seven Spires is still rather new to me but I did meet their singer at another show in NYC once and now I will get to see them on the stage too. This is one of those perfect tours and as I close this up I wonder what you think about the news. Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.
