Amaranthe: Maximalism review

Amaranthe’s new album got released about a month ago. Beforehand, I had pre-ordered the album on iTunes and got access to 3 songs off the album early. I remember from listening to the songs, I could tell this was going to be a great album, and Amaranthe didn’t disappoint me.

Album cover

Amaranthe keeps their tradition of having their A shaped logo in colors synced with the background. For Maximalism, it is mainly red with little splashes of black. The logo has an eye on top of it too.

Songs

While I had the album pre-ordered, I got 3 songs early access: Maximize, That Song, and Fury. These songs got me pumped for the new album! Maximalism maintains Amaranthe’s blend of melodic death metal and pop, while adding a nice dance vibe to their songs. The songs sound great for a party. My personal favorite songs from the album are Maximize, Boomerang, Fury, Supersonic, and Endlessly.

Overall

Maximalism is a great album for seasoned and new fans alike. From Elize’s beautiful vocals to the hard driving riffs, this album turns the heads of almost every metal fan. I give Maximalism 4.5 out of 5 stars.
