4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent female-fronted Thrash Metal, 25 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Anthems of Rebellion (Audio CD)
A Thrash / Melodic Death band fronted by a woman? Some kind of joke, you may think. Once you hear Arch Enemy doing their stuff though, you won't think that. Angela Gossow certainly knows what she's doing when it comes to extreme Metal vocals, and whilst you can tell it's a woman singing on this record (on the previous one, she sounded for all the world as if she was a man), there's nothing girly about her performance. However, for all her good singing, Arch Enemy are all about the guitar playing of the Amott brothers, in particular Michael who writes Thrash riffs like other people breathe air; it just comes naturally to him. Listen to the first track after the intro, 'Silent Wars' and if you're any kind of Metal fan, I defy you not to bang your head to it! It's that kind of song, in fact it's that kind of album. Pure headbanging heaven. It's by no means the heaviest Thrash album ever released, but then again, that's not what they're trying to do with it. Having said that, it does have a nice crunch to it, though bands like The Crown are far heavier in this genre. If you like Melodic Death bands like In Flames or Soilwork, or slightly harder kinds of modern Thrash like The Haunted or Dew-Scented you should check out Arch Enemy with all haste, they're sure to be right up your street.
