Site Upgrades
I've gotten off my butt and coded a mini blogging system for the news on here, so you can leave your thoughts, comments and opinions. Word of warning: abuse it and be banned and have your house burned to the ground by raving, trained rabbits with flame throwers from Russia.

What a gig!
First of all a big thank you for all who turned up and made it one of the best gigs we've ever had! And then a huge thanks to the two gorgeous dancers that kept the audience's attention throughout, and of course a massive thanks to Malcolm for the brilliant paint job. Many thanks to Mikko for great camera work and Nik for all the photography. Also a thanks to the Marquee for being very supportive all the way. Last but not least a big thanks to Declan for bringing all the kit, setting up, mixing, and keeping it all together.

Here's a picture we shot before the gig - more from the gig itself and hopefully some video clips will follow soon!

After a very successful gig at Lockstock in Norwich, where our new singer proved himself publically for the first time, new plans are ahead. Amaranth are currently finishing off writing new material before heading into the studio to record a new demo album. A bio page for our new singer Neil Frankham is in the works, and there might be a couple of video clips from our last gig coming soon.

Minor Updates
I have installed a counter on the front page and moved some of the headlines into an archive, so as not to clutter this page too much. Now make sure you actually come back every so often, otherwise the visitor count will look dire. :)
