A relentless onslaught of metal! Exactly what I would expect from guitarist Mike Amott, who the true death metal fan will remember from none other than the mighty Carcass! Now, with his younger brother, guitarist Christopher (of Armageddon), former Carnage vocalist John Liiva and former Eucharist drummer Daniel Erlandsson, Arch Enemy should do in 1998 what Carcass did in 1992. That is, amaze the world of metal and become one of the most highly respected and most sought-after bands of the year!
Wow! This is like classic Iron Maiden, Judas Priest mixed with the determined thrash bloodfest of Carcass! Opera-metal guitars and longing keyboards joined with gruff, battlefield vocals are sure to turn up the speed in the pit! Songs like “Beast of Man,” “Let the Killing Begin,” “Black Earth,” and “Bridge of Destiny” will test the steel of all comers! “Tears of the Dead” and “Vox Stellarum” will even get those who need a bit of hard goth in their metal into the fray! Hail the return of these metal warriors! Century Media, 1453-A 14th St., Suite 324, Santa Monica, CA 90404; http://www.centurymedia.com
