Fans of Amaranthe might have noticed something a bit amiss when the Swedish metal band hit the Amos' Southend stage on Sunday night, but any visual differences were negligible when it came to sound. Though one of the band's members, Jake E. Lundberg, is not on tour so he can stay home with his new baby, the singer's replacement, Chris Adams, filled the shoes admirably alongside Elize Ryd and Henrik Englund. 

Adams sings the male melodic portion of Amaranthe's music which showcases a variety of styles — the growl of Englund, the male-female duet options, the growled vs. sung dichotomy. It's a solid blend that merges well, especially in the live setting. For the most part, Adams appeared a bit reserved, but his vocals were always on-point. Ryd absorbs much of the spotlight thanks to her impressive range. 

The night was started by Athens, Georgia, rock quartet Lullwater which displayed its Southern and classic rock influences. The meat in the metal sandwich was laid down by Butcher Babies' heavy-handed, growled metal.
