When Arch Enemy welcomed German export Angela Gossow to the fold, the band’s popularity skyrocketed. Call it coincidence, call it fate, but Angela’s savage vocal delivery, which is reminiscent of Carcass’ Jeff Walker, brought an unholy union to the band featuring Carcass axeman Michael Amott.
Arch Enemy, 'Cruelty Without Beauty'
As the 2012 Wacken Open Air festival winds down in Germany, the 2013 lineup is already being announced band by band.
Arch Enemy claim yet another victim as Angela Gossow and the boys put Job for a Cowboy to sleep in last week's Death Match. That makes two wins for the Swedish metallers -- officially bringing them to the halfway point in their journey to the Death Match Hall of Fame. However, Arch Enemy may not be all-smiles after facing their next opponents.
With Dying Fetus achieving their fourth consecutive victory in our weekly Death Match, the band's track 'Subjected to a Beating' has been declared immortal in our Death Match Hall of Fame. You know what this means! We've got two fresh tracks in this week's battle, with Arch Enemy taking on Six Feet Under.
Earlier this week, the news broke that longtime Arch Enemy guitarist Christopher Amott had left the band. Although Chris Amott had left the band in 2005, only to return in 2007, the news was still a bit shocking for Arch Enemy fans. In a new interview with Christopher's former bandmate and older brother Michael Amott, the departure of Chris was far from surprising.
