I bought this album on the basis of a good review and hearing a couple of Arch Enemey's songs. It hasn't left my CD player since - it's incredible. I haven't heard such good guitar playing in a modern band before, and the melodic riffs are mixed with growling, angry death metal vocals, and some catchy lyrics.
The album opens with the first of two impressive instrumentals (I'm not usually a fan of instrumentals, but these are well done) and moves swiftly onto Taking Back My Soul, a catchy, powerful track. Next is Nemesis - my favourite on the album, a long intro builds up for the wonderful chorus - "One for all - all for one/We are strong - We are one" this song (about revolution) would stand out if the others weren't so good.
Other highlights include Carry the Cross and Mechanic God Creation.
Rarely has a metal album been so melodic and yet so brutal at the same time.

I happened upon Arch Enemy recently on the tellybox and thought I'd give them a go. I'M DAMN WELL GLAD I DID! This is an outstanding "melodic doom metal" album, probably one of very few like it.

When an album flows well, you instantly know it. This album does exactly that. It took me a couple of listens to properly distinguish between everything that was going on (there's a lot of it) but soon I was hooked.

The combination of a very rare female "growler" with Michael Amott on guitar is outstanding. If anything Angela Gossow's vocals are a lot clearer than a man doing the same, probably due to the difference in pitch.

All in all, if you like your metal and want something with classic riffs, great musicians and a shedload of anti-establishment anger, buy this.

Having bought Wages of Sin recently, i was excited about this band - not least because of Gossow's man-like thunder of a voice - and was really looking forward to getting this new release.
I was not dissappointed! this is just a sensational album from start to finish, and makes huge progress from Wages of Sin and is the much more good looking and brutal younger brother. With tracks like nemesis, out for blood and carry the cross i havent stopped listening to this album 2 weeks on...i just cant say enough good things about this album. Its my release of the year.
Fans of anything shouty should give this a look, and for all Chimaira, God-Forbid and Trivium fans this is an essentail buy!

When any band say 'this is the best album we have done' alarm bell should ring, what they really mean is 'we had lots of support making it, we found it easy to write, the process was quick and we had a great time doing it'.

Arch Enemy said just that upon finishing this album. I should point out that if your a fan its great and should still be classed as some of the best of this type of music about.

The big build verse chorus parts have been turned down a bit and the 'thrash until you have thrashed a bit too much and then thrash a little more' parts have also been eased down in all the album is more sensible but less fun (fun is prehapes not the best word to descride AE but you get the idea) than previous work.

If you know no AE get 'Anthems of Rebellion' a consistantly better album I feel.

ah,the expectation of a new album,the excitement when the release date is known and the joyous march to the music store with cash in hand and hope in heart,nothing better?wouldnt you agree?,well with doomsday machine i was literally dancing to the shop,got home,first few songs were pretty decent,i punched the air,i was happy,next few songs,a bit bland if im honest but a second listen can change that i told myself,last few songs were ok,but again that can change,so i listened again and the same feelings remained,and they remained for next few spins and still do to this day,surely that isnt how i should feel when listening to the monster that is swedens arch enemy.Like i say there are some class songs on here but compared to sat,wages of sin ,this isnt a true metal album,yes it rocks but it isnt class,there is clearly some filler in here,it just doesnt leave me feeling like i have been through a tornado,i have very high expectations for arch enemy releases,maybe i aimed too high as most on here love it,it just doesnt leave me crying when the album ends for more

Having loved 'Anthems Of Rebellion' and virtually everything before it i was cacking myself in anticipation of this album...about two odd years ago hehe (late review). And i have to say - i wasn't impressed then and i'm not impressed even now :(

I was outstanded by the new technicality levels, who'd have though AE of all people could get more technical? :O

But the real let down for me was the lyrics really....there's nothing bad about how they were written, it just seems like the left over lyrics from 'Anthems...' put together and screamed into a microphone.

Don't get me wrong, the first few tracks ARE GOOD...but after that it really does start to get quite boring.

Here's hoping the next album's their career best! :)

Firstly: this albulm is packed with top-notch guitar melodies and shredding all the way through. About two-thirds of this albulm consists of that hardcore riffage complete with great vocals that have been written and delivered to Arch Enemy's standard. One third of the albulm, i'm sad to say; is complete filler, even if the production is of high quality. It's mainly problems with the songwriting on the duff tracks, but to be fair there's plenty of awesome tracks here to help you oversee the less pleasant aspects to the albulm. Definitely worth getting if you own and liked 'Anthems of Rebellion'. The price is very attractive also.
