"ARCH ENEMY are a triumphant high point for today's metal scene." -- KERRANG!

Product Description

Love her or hate her vocalist Angela Gossow, guitars that are technically superior to anything from Anthems of Rebellion, and drumwork that is still as good as ever come together on the new Arch Enemy CD. While, they've still got some moments of radio-Metal placed throughout, they've returned to a thrashier sound than the past couple of albums. Features the first single 'Nemesis' and the songs 'Skeleton Dance', 'My Apocalypse', 'Carry the Cross' and 'I Am Legend/Out for Blood'. Doomsday Machine was co-produced by the band and Rickard Bengtsson in Sweden. Century Media. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swedish Metal Lives! July 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Since the spring of 2005, Arch Enemy have been promising that their newest album would be darker and heavier than their recent work. After the highly mixed opinions over the vocals of newcomer Angela Gossow on 2001's _Wages of Sin_, and the shorter, more streamlined styles of 2003's _Anthems of Rebellion_, the band more than lived up to that promise. Their latest effort, _Doomsday Machine_, ranks alongside Meshuggah's _Catch ThirtyThr33_ and Darkane's _Layers of Lies_ as being one of the best Swedish metal albums in the past year.

The aforementioned "streamlined" trimmings from _Anthems of Rebellion_ seem to have been put onto the back burner on _Doomsday Machine_. The Amott brothers are just as good as they've ever been, again claiming the title as one of the tightest heavy metal guitar duos of all time, with their leads, solos, and melodies much more of a throwback to their _Stigmata_ (1998) and _Burning Bridges_ (1999) days. The rhythm section is beefed up a lot more as well; Sharlee D'Angelo's bass adds a distinctively deep backdrop to the guitars, and Daniel Erlandsson (who had promised more variation in his drumming) uses his set to create rhythms that EXPLODE in bursts of thunder, even utilizing blast beats to intensify and complement the album's heaviness.

Aside from its more powerful sound, perhaps the most distinguishing and significant aspect of _Doomsday Machine_ are Angela Gossow's vocals. Without a shadow of a doubt, this is her best performance to date. She uses a lot more range this time around; she's always had range, if not as much as many a fan (spoiled on AE's original vocalist Johan Liiva) would have liked.

4.0 out of 5 stars Arch Enemy Take Back Their Soul September 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Swedish death metallers Arch Enemy return with Doomsday Machine, a much welcome new album after their previous disc Anthems of Rebellion. Although it was their breakthrough record earning Arch Enemy massive critical acclaim and lots of new fans, at the same time it was easily their most streamlined offering to date.

With their new album, the band goes back to the heaviness and complexity of Wages of Sin, their first disc with current female growler Angela Gossow. Guitarists Mike Amott and Chris Amott supply blistering lead solos that merge melody and aggression, whilst Sharlee D'Angelo on bass and Daniel Erlandsson on drums form the solid rhythm section. Though good, I feel Sharlee D'Angelo provided a more pronounced and violent performance on the last Spiritual Beggars album (also recommended to all Arch Enemy fans) released recently. Daniel Erlandsson, however, absolutely shines on this disc. His tone, his timing and his understanding of rhythm are perfectly exemplified on all the songs. They range from fierce blast beats to odd metered polyrhythms and plain out drum solos. Angela Gossow's vocals are slighlty toned down; she doesn't sing very low as she did on the previous two discs, but therefore her vocals are easier to follow and let the lyrics come out better. Speaking of which, the lyrical content seems to be a more detailed study of the ones on Anthems of Rebellion, addressing social decay and rebellion of the individual.

Needless to say, as on any other Arch Enemy disc, the meat of the music on Doomsday Machine is the Amott brothers. They once again prove to be an indistructible duo, laying down brutal, dark and imaginative guitar leads executed flawlessly.

Format:Audio CD
Arch Enemy are now huge! After releasing a few excellent melodic death metal albums during the 90s, these Swedes hit the big time by introducing a truly awe inspiring vocalist in Angela Gossow. Now this can easily be seen as a commercially based decision considering the amount of success other female fronted bands are having in Europe, yet one listen to Angela's truly devastating vocals and you realise these guys have lost none of their bite.

And yet with great success seemingly comes great abuse, with many narrow-minded fans automatically writing them off once they started hitting the charts. Now I'll be the first to admit that 2003's "Anthems of Rebellion" was desperately close to being commercially created due to its singable choruses and a distinct lack of heaviness, but it was still nothing your parents were going to get into. I think the main criticism I could have thrown at it was that it was musically much simpler than anything they'd done before. But I still enjoyed it nonetheless. So, what's 2005 Arch Enemy all about? Let's take a look.

Firstly, "Doomsday Machine" is definitely heavy! It's heavier and darker in feel to their previous album. Everything ranging from the artwork, the lyrics, the vocals, the sound, the riffs, are more aggressive, which may surprise many that figured they'd gone soft. Angela's vocals have improved again, being both extremely brutal and comprehensible at the same time, although I'm sure there's some processing on the finished product. The Amott brothers once again unleash extremely tight, superb guitar riffs throughout and Daniel's drumming is suitably crushing and faultless.
