Why Aren't These Artists In The Rock & Hall of Fame???

With the 2018 just around the corner the Loudini Hard Rock and Metal Circus want's to know what's up with these bands who haven't been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame? Featured Loudini Artists:   Greta Van Fleet  Hand of Dimes  Amaranthe

Greta Van Fleet
Firing twin barrels of arena-rock muscle and moving melodies, Greta Van Fleet is a modern rock & roll band rooted in the genre's strongest traditions: super-sized hooks, raw riffage and the sweeping vocals of a front man who was born to wail. 

The four-piece formed in Frakenmuth, Michigan, just outside of Detroit, where 20 year-old twin brothers Josh and Jake Kiszka began playing shows with their 17 year-old younger brother, Sam, and 17 year-old family friend Danny Wagner. Holding their practices in the Kiszka family garage and road-testing their songs onstage throughout Michigan, the four became a band of brothers whose songs mix classic chops with the thrill of teenage angst. 

From sing-along choruses to fiery guitar solos, Greta Van Fleet rounds up a highlight reel of rock & roll heroics. These guys aren't revivalists; they're looking ahead, breathing new life into a sound that's blasted out of car dashboards and living room stereos for decades.

The ONLY official Amaranthe Facebook page!

AMARANTHE have carved their name into the annals of metal in capital letters. According to some sources “melodic death metal” and somewhere else pegged as “metalcore” Amaranthe keeps driving genre purists loopy. 

Formed in 2007 by Olof Mörck and Jake E. in Gothenburg and sporting 3 singers, each with characteristics of their own, Amaranthe sound like no other band - timeless, pop choruses coated with an icing of three layers of sublime singing and growls. 

In April 2011 their debut album was released via Spinefarm Records to worldwide acclaim, charting high in Sweden and Finland. “Amaranthe” was the 84th most played album on Spotify worldwide, counting all genres. After a completed run of 92 live shows they returned to the studio.

March 2013 saw the release of “The Nexus”. Extensive touring followed, more chart entries garnered (Top 10 entries in Sweden and Finland, #12 on US Billboard Heatseeker etc.). 

October 2014 saw the release of Amaranthe’s 3rd outing MASSIVE ADDICTIVE. The album immediately charted in 6 countries, reaching #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. 

The band’s 4th album “Maximalism” was released in October 2016. The album charted everywhere, reaching #1 on the Billboard Heatseakers, Top 100 Billboard & #3 in Finland.

Jake E left the band in the spring of 2017 to pursue a career outside of Amaranthe. The band signed Nils Molin as replacement. The announcement was made at Provinssi Festival in Finland on July 1st 2017.
