The band's sophomore album found the most success, having found its way to the top of charts in multiple countries. Some of the hit songs that fans will be delighted to hear while seeing Amaranthe in concert are "Hunger," "Rain," "Burn With Me" and "Invincible." There are a number of great songs off of the band's most recent album that they are presently supporting on tour.
Interestingly, users of Spotify have showed Amaranthe love. In 2011, the self-titled album was considered the 84th most played album in the world. Considering Amaranthe is a metal band, the acknowledgment is equally unique as the music the band performs. Another way that sets Amaranthe a part from other metal bands is having a female singer, Elize Ryd. In an interview with Blabbermouth Magazine, she discussed what it is like being a woman in the metal world, "Within the band, it's fine, because [the other members of the group] see me as their sister, you know? But sometimes we are very different, because I like to do different things than the guys do, so sometimes I feel very alone. And also, I feel that the women in metal always get objectified in a different way than the guys, and I think it's very unfair. I'm definitely a feminist in that perspective […] I also read very, very, disrespectful comments that are focused towards me because I'm a woman — not because I'm an artist just like the other guys — so there is a difference. But I also get a lot of good critique. Mostly it's love." Adoration for the band seems to be what is most common and is what keeps Amaranthe selling out venues.
