Editors’ Notes Perhaps only Sweden could produce a band like Amaranthe. On their fifth album, they once again combine two of the Scandinavian nation’s signature sounds: gleaming dance-pop and roaring metal. While that might seem like an unlikely (or straight-up unworkable) fusion, Helix seamlessly mixes dubstep’s bass drops with death-metal riffing (“Gg6”), Eurovision choruses with Motörhead’s drive ("Iconic"), and glam-pop with industrial rock (“Countdown”). Even at their most technical (“Inferno”), the band always deliver massive singalong hooks, the pipes of Elize Ryd and Nils Molin sweetening Henrik Englund Wilhelmsson’s brutal growl.
