In early June 2014, Arch Enemy will unleash 9th studio album, “War Eternal,” worldwide via Century Media Records and Trooper Entertainment in Japan. In what seems like but apparently is not an early April Fools joke, Century Media records has issued the following statement about the band now replacing front woman Angela Gossow: “With this upcoming release, the band will introduce a new member to their ranks: Alissa White-Gluz, former vocalist of Canadian extreme metallers The Agonist. Angela Gossow, who joined Arch Enemy in 2000 and made her debut on the now classic Wages Of Sin (2001), will be stepping down as front-woman and focusing on management, while Alissa takes her place.” Angela Gossow comments: “Dear ARCH ENEMY fans, this is not easy to tell you…I have decided to step down from being ARCH ENEMY’s voice of anger.

Arch Enemy summoning legions of khaos and stuff

Arch Enemy have unveiled the latest video from last year’s Khaos Legions album – and it ain’t for the faint-hearted. Or people who like animal cruelty. Which is hopefully none of you.

Cruelty Without Beauty deals with the none-too-light-hearted issue of animal cruelty – a subject which, as the singer explains, is very close to Angela Gossow’s heart.

“I’m very pleased we got this video done for one of my favourite songs off the Khaos Legions album,” says Angela, who is now on her fifth proper studio album with the band since joining for 2001′s Wages Of Sin. “The video is quite raw and extreme as it reflects the lyrics very well I believe, dealing with a subject matter close to my heart – animal cruelty and vivisection.”

Angela Gossow: Fighting The Good Fight

“We want to thank the good folks at Peta2, Hardforce, Metalitalia and The Metal Circus for supporting a serious subject,” she adds. “All of us have been well aware that a video like this doesn’t find everybody’s acceptance. But rock music was always more than guitar riffs – it’s also the voice of the voiceless.”

Khaos Legions is out now via Century Media.

Arch Enemy announced back in March that longtime guitarist Chris Amott had left the band for the second time, to be replaced by Nick Cordle.
