Amaranthe are a Swedish/Danish Power Metal/Melodic Death Metal band that are noticeable for their poppy melodies.

They formed in 2009 under the name Avalanche, but were forced to change the name due to a copyright issue. Shortly after, they released a demo called Leave Everything Behind, with Olof doing the basswork as Bassist Johan Andreassen joined after the recording. Formed by Jake E and Olof Mörck), the project began taking shape when singers Elize Ryd and Andreas Solvestrom signed on, as did drummer Morten Løwe Sørensen.

Jake E left the band in 2017 and subsequently formed a new group, CyHra.

The name of the band, often questioned, is originally an uncommon French last name.
