Some things can weather storms and emerge stronger, better and more powerful than ever. Arch Enemy has endured on the heavy metal scene for over 20 years and they have been redefining the genre with each album they released.
Ten studio albums later and countless miles of touring behind the belt the band remains a powerful player on the ever-changing metal scene. After some changes in the line-up of the band and introduction of Alissa White-Glutz as the leading vocalist and guitarist Jeff Loomis from Nevermore, the ingenious puzzle of personalities and talents has been finally completed.
Switching singers in 2014 was a big change of course. Alissa brings a lot the band as a singer and a very visually strong performer but also she writes great lyrics and vocal patterns that are very different to mine, which makes for more variation in the Arch Enemy sound. The twin-guitar attack has always been a big part of our sound and now we have Jeff Loomis who's played some face-melting leads on the new album!
