…because while the “Drop Dead Cynical” single was drop dead formulaic, this one’s kinda better:
The two bonus tracks off that old “Rain” single were beyond cool, of course, but – as much as I hoped they signified the new direction the band was going to move into, they kinda remained a one of a kind diversion. The second album basically was the first one with slightly reworked lyrics (and I’d learnt the original songs by heart back when they only had a demo out), and then, I kinda ‘quit’ after Andy quit.
But there’s no other band that does this particular “to hell with genres” thing quite like Amaranthe do.
And these are those bonus tracks. The second one is my favourite.
