4.0 out of 5 stars Wages of Sin, 5 July 2006
This review is from: Wages of Sin (Audio CD)
For their 4th album Arch Enemy have a major line-up change with original vocalist Johan Liiva making way for new singer Angela Gossow. Any fears that the addition of a female vocalist would lead to Arch Enemy going soft however prove unfounded, as Angela gives full-on death metal screams throughout of such harshness that the changeover isn't that much apparent. Musically this is the same Arch Enemy of old, with their highly melodic death metal collision of the intensity of Carcass and the hooks of Iron Maiden. Inevitably a couple of tracks smack a little of filler, but for the most part the quality control is very high, with some highly infectious metal riffing (not least the `Hanger 18'-style `Burning Angel') and a stunning production. Great melodic death metal.

NB: The best version of this release is the 2 disc limited edition, which not only contains a bonus track and video on disc 1, but a further 7 audio rarities and 1 video from the bands earlier years on the second disc.
