Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the Swedish melodic Death Metal band. Khaos Legions is the follow-up to 2007's Rise Of The Tyrant, which marked the band's highest debut on the Billboard Top 200 to date.

Customer Reviews

Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys metal!
Brian
The songs are still technically proficient, but sound a little too similar to what has come before.
Konstantin Levin
Anyway, there was some really cool double bass during the verse as well.

Khaos Legions, the newest Arch Enemy album at this time of writing, is not their best work, nor is it their worst (there is no such thing as a "bad" AE album, but I've found Anthems of Rebellion to be their weakest overall). I'm just going to do a by-the-points review here:

1. Angela's vocals - sounds like the vocal mixing/enhancing on "Doomsday Machine." No complaints here.
2. Sound/production - masterful. It's loud, crystal clear, and you can hear every little nuance. Production is an A+.
3. Unfortunately, the lyric material is nothing new. Didn't we already gloss over the whole rebellion/resistance/revolt theme on "Anthems of Rebellion?" Maybe so, but here, it's supported with heavier, better music than AoR. The theme gets tiring after a while though, especially when it's just not an interesting subject for metal music anymore. I've sworn off Otep after "Smash the Control Machine" because of the same, boring material...and now AE has to have two albums with the same themes? We need to hear something new, guys. Please.
4. Riff-wise, the Amott brothers are seriously out of ideas. Listening to the whole album, I've heard at least 4-5 major riff passages that directly ripped off older AE riffs. One of the biggest offenders is the intro to "Cult of Chaos" - right up to the break into heaviness, it sounds almost exactly like the intro to "Nemesis" of the Doomsday Machine album. A second offender is one section in "No Gods, No Masters," which sounds like it was ripped directly from "Revolution Begins" off of the Rise of the Tyrant album. For shame! Otherwise, you're going to hear some very familiar dual-guitar work and the signature Amott guitar riffs. There is also a considerable amount of absolute shredding, which is never unwelcome.

"Khaos Legions" is the 9th studio album by Swedish-German melodic death metal band "Arch Enemy" featuring the long-established line up of guitarist Michael and Christopher Ammott, bassist Charlee D'Angelo, drummer Daniel Erlandsson and front woman Angela Gossow.

Music-wise "Khaos Legions" is equally based on melodies and riffs which makes for well balanced songwriting; The rhythm section is furious bringing to front double bass attack, thick toms complemented by down-tuned guitar riffs and rhythm guitar parts-still- the melodic guitar lines never fair to establish a firm presence on each and every song on the set-list.

It is at this point that one has to give credit to the band for understanding the importance of keeping things simple: Ammott's six-string melodies are cleverly crafted, simple (but not simplistic) and memorable; Angela for her part adds the growls distorting her voice in such a way where it is still possible for one to make out the lyrics. Most importantly the songs on "Khaos Legions" are clearly structured- an opening riff, a main body, a melodic verse and a chorus; so any performance is very well contained within the songwriting which makes for very disciplined musicianship.

Standout songs on this impressive 15-track collection include "Yesterday is dead and gone", "Bloodstained Cross", "No Gods, no Masters", "Thorns in my flesh" and "City of the Dead". If you are a fan of extreme yet melodic metal which plays by the rules of popular songwriting, then "Khaos Legions" is for you.

Yes, Arch Enemy are a Swedish melodic death metal band that formed in the Nineties out of the ashes of a few other groups (i.e. Carnage, Carcass, Spiritual Beggars). And yes, they do wear their influences (i.e. Carcass, Slayer, At The Gates, The Crown, Metallica), proudly on their sleeves. But Arch Enemy are a band with their own sound. This is partially due to the fact that they have a vocalist (Angela Gossow), who is not only a female, but she is also one of the most brutal vocalists in all of the genre. But this is also partially due to the fact that very few other bands have been able to balance intense, blood-pumping metal with contagious melodies so successfully. So, even though they are one in a countless number of bands that have become more popular in recent years due to the resurgence of metalcore, they were still one of the earliest -- and therefore most important and influential -- groups to emerge from the Gothenburg scene in the mid-to-late 1990's and early 2000's.

Arch Enemy's eighth studio record, 2011's "Khaos Legions," is a surprisingly thrashy effort with boatloads of memorable guitar pyrotechnics. It begins on a bit of a subdued note, though, as "Khaos Overture" is an ominous intro track with siren-like guitar melodies backed up by a thumping, martial drum beat and creepy spoken-word vocals. But brutality then erupts as this intro piece flows into the all-out thrash fury of "Yesterday Is Dead And Gone," which explodes with blistering, buzzsaw speed metal picking, wah-tinged guitar leads, and positively monstrous death metal bellows from Gossow. It also lets rip a nicely melodic solo, too.
