Blows your gonads off!,

This review is from: Doomsday Machine (Audio CD)
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.

one thing to mention - this is not a "doom metal album", it is melodic death metal. Doom is quite different
