Amaranthe lights up the stage with a European sweetness. Butcher Babies pound the stage with a brutal disposition unmatched in all but the most violent of American streets.
Amaranthe weaves in plenty of electronic tracks that - if it weren't for distorted guitars and the occasional growl - give their music an almost dance-club feel. Butcher Babies bleed the heaviest of metal as if the genre was invented for them alone.
But, when these two currently-hot acts are put on the same bill as they were at Pittsburgh's Altar Bar on Tuesday, audiences are treated to a night of music that runs the gauntlet of metal.
