This year marks the 10th anniversary of the release of “Wages Of Sin”, the first ARCH ENEMY album to feature Angela Gossow on vocals. When asked if the band has any intention of commemorating this anniversary, Angela told Radio Metal, “We’re thinking about doing some special ‘Wages Of Sin’ shows.”
In a 2001 interview with Metal-Rules.com, Gossow stated about the ARCH ENEMY fans’ reaction to her joining the band, “99 percent [of them] reacted very positively — most of them didn’t know about my gender when they heard the [initial audio samples] first. We revealed my identity later. Many [described it as] a mixture of Jeff Walker [CARCASS] and Anders Fridén [IN FLAMES], [so] they were shocked when reading my name. I got many excited mails and great feedback on our comment site online.”
ARCH ENEMY’s new album, “Khaos Legions”, will be released on May 30 in Europe and June 7 in the U.S. via Century Media Records. The CD marks the band’s return to new, original material, after the release of the “Tyrants Of The Rising Sun – Live In Japan” live DVD/CD (2008) and the re-recordings album, “The Root Of All Evil” (2009). The effort was tracked at Sweet Spot Studio in the south of Sweden with engineer Rickard Bengtsson (who produced 2005’s “Doomsday Machine”).
