AMARANTHE have carved their name into the annals of metal in capital letters. According to some sources “melodic death metal” and somewhere else pegged as “metalcore” Amaranthe keeps driving genre purists loopy. Formed in 2007 by Olof Mörck and Jake E. in Gothenburg and sporting 3 singers, each with characteristics of their own, Amaranthe sound like no other band – timeless, pop choruses coated with an icing of three layers of sublime singing and growls. In April 2011 their debut album was released via Spinefarm Records to worldwide acclaim, charting high in Sweden and Finland. “Amaranthe” was the 84th most played album on Spotify worldwide, counting all genres.

After a completed run of 92 live shows they returned to the studio.   March 2013 saw the release of “The Nexus”. Extensive touring followed, more chart entries garnered (Top 10 entries in Sweden and Finland, #12 on US Billboard Heatseeker etc.).  October 2014 saw the release of Amaranthe’s 3rd outing MASSIVE ADDICTIVE. The album immediately charted in 6 countries, reaching #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.

The band’s 4th album “Maximalism” was released in October 2016. The album charted everywhere, reaching #1 on the Billboard Heatseakers, Top 100 Billboard & #3 in Finland. Jake E left the band in the spring of 2017 to pursue a career outside of Amaranthe. The band signed Nils Molin as replacement. The announcement was made at Provinssi Festival in Finland on July 1st 2017.
