Just listened to that new track... I can safely say it's the first Arch Enemy song I've listened to in about ten years. The music sounds like standard melo-death, the vocalist sounds alright. I do remember Gossow sounding particularly venomous though. Anyway, I didn't think the new singer sounded flat, and she fit the music. Unrelated: as a politically incorrect male who enjoys looking at beautiful women, Alissa White-Gluz fits the bill.

This will be pretty interesting. I got into Arch Enemy when Wages of Sin came out and I saw them with Angela at NEMHF '02. Since that was my first exposure to them, I was more "used to" the Angela stuff than the Johan stuff, but liked both eras.

However, I don't think I've heard a "unique and new" Arch Enemy song in about 10 years. Even though they are amazing players (particularly on the guitar side of things) it feels like they are never willing to leave their niche. Sure, some bands can make a career out of that (looks at Slayer, Amon Amarth, etc) but with Arch Enemy the skill of the band members makes you wonder what else they could do.

Alissa is a better overall vocalist than Angela - by far. She can sing, she can get deeper with her growls, she can growl in key, etc. She's also got a bit of a diva reputation, and might not have the stage presence of Angela. Unless AE uses this moment to perhaps open their sound up a bit, I could see things ending quickly. They aren't the draw they were in that 2001-2005 period where they were one of the biggest bands in the underground, and everyone in this band is capable of side gigs that pay some of the bills.

Keen insights you have, young padawan. Clouded the future of Arch Enemy is. Post more you should.

Sorta reminds me of Bloodbath's Unblessing the Purity cover.

Apart from the bit where Alissa is a better all round vocalist than Angela (given that Alissa's clean vocals are shit versus Angela's which don't exist, so moot point), agreed.

Yeah it is similar. The Unblessing The Purity cover is one of my most favorite covers.

The vocals sound like metal-core. Metal-core Arch Enemy. That is not good.
