We have covered Arch Enemy extensively over the years and even developed a relationship with the band’s founder and guitarist, Michael Amott. He’s been featured on Live Metal so much that we’ve joked that he should have his own column.

When Angela Gossow replaced original vocalist Johan Liiva in 2000, she and Arch Enemy paved the way for female vocalists fronting extreme music. She can be considered a pioneer now in that aspect. Yes, she wasn’t the first, but she did become one of the most well known and admired, while Arch Enemy became one of the most recognizable bands in its subgenre. So earlier this year, when it was announced Angela was  stepping down as vocalist to concentrate on her career as a manager, I was surprised and the metal community was shocked. (more…)
