MASSIVE ADDICTIVE (Awaiting Repress)Gothenburg's finest, AMARANTHE, have completed their third strike. As per the band's custom, "MASSIVE ADDICTIVE" was tracked at Hansen Studios
in Ribe, Denmark with the sound sorcerer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Epica etc.) at the helm.
"MASSIVE ADDICTIVE" features some of the best Amaranthe material to date. In addition to the divine duality of pulsating beats and melodic pop
choruses both of which we're accustomed to hear from them, rejuvenated Amaranthe now caters to us further advanced dynamics, a cornucopia of
celestial choruses and of course, sheer melodic bliss. Best known for their danceable upbeat anthems, the band surely has a handful of instant
Amaranthe classics on "MASSIVE ADDICTIVE" such as Trinity and the most contagious chorus of the album, Digital World.
Although already in possession of winning receipt, Amaranthe won't settle for resting on their laurels. Not to tread water, the band has taken to update
their sound so now you'll hear contemporary influences never used before in Amaranthe's songs before such as breakdowns, dubstep, voice studders
and delays. But that's not to say that Amaranthe has forgotten where their fortes lie - as always, song is king.
But it's the whole that has improved. Olof's surgical riffs and soaring solos, Morten's sturdy rhythmic backbone, Johan's booming low-frequency assault,
Elize's ever more emotive singing, Jake's melodic vocal outpour and the new screamer Henrik Englund Wilhelmsson all put together combine for an
entirely new spectrum of nuances. Yes, they've always been ear candy, but now with their MASSIVE updated sound, Amaranthe is more ADDICTIVE
than ever.1. Dynamite

City Of HeroesFrontiers Music Srl has announced the release of the anticipated new album from Kiske / Somerville, entitled City Of Heroes.
Kiske / Somerville is the musical collaboration between vocalists Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween, Unisonic, Place Vendome) and Amanda Somerville (Trillium, Avantasia) and this new recording is certainly going to be one of the highlights of the season in rock music. Kiske's soaring overtones seem to blend perfectly with the ethereal quality and diverse range of Amanda's voice and this time the results are truly over the top.
This brilliant new album sees Mat Sinner (Primal Fear, Sinner) and Magnus Karlsson (Starbreaker, Primal Fear) handling most of the songwriting (with a song contribution "Breaking Neptune" from Sander Gommans formerly of After Forever and Amanda Somerville herself) and with Sinner overseeing the production in various recording studios in Europe. Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Primal Fear, Pretty Maids, Doro etc.) then took care of the mix of the album ensuring a sonic quality second to none.1. City Of Heroes
