Amaranthe – Massive Addictive (2014) – Review


I heard somewhere that not knowing the Swedish/Danish Viking band 'Amaranthe' is not knowing Metal. Come again? Well, here I am listening to their last, newest and best 2014 concoction 'Massive Addictive' and I just ask myself - WHAT ON EARTH IS THAT?? For sure, the tunes are catchy, fast, kind of Power Metally and well produced (even too well produced), but - gosh - it just sounds to me like 'George Michael' on steroids teamed up with some pop queen.
