If you have been privately longing for lanky limbs, joy riding women, strong cheek bones and choppy haircuts in your life (and / or feather-hair, power suits, and sharp-looking metro-sexual attitudes) – then you are probably missing the splendor and unrestrained brilliance of those incessant late eighties / early nineties power ballads.
Those lusty Swedish broadsiders Roxette might not be making’ em any more (the pop/rock duo was named after Dr. Feelgood’s 1974 debut single… if only you can believe that) .. but if you’re still hungry for some power and emotion – you could try the new video Amaranthe.
Amaranthe (formerly known as Avalanche) are another one of those Scandinavian (Sweden / Denmark) bands who calls themselves “melodic metal”. But, with Amaranthe you get clean male/female vocal duets and a brilliant pop-finesse that has more in common with Abba than it does with Nightwish. Maybe they should be filed under “Radio Friendly Power Ballad”.
Check out the video to see for yourself.
