Anyone heard their new album "Rise Of The Tyrant"?

Bought it yesterday and I must say it's one of the best (maybe THE best?) new albums I purchased this year! No fillers!

Full of cool riffs and drums and not to forget: melodic guitar lines and many solos! People who like Maiden should really take a listen. The vocals are not clean, I know, but perhaps the music could win you over!

I've heard it. My first Arch Enemy album, and I really liked it. I was expecting stereotypical Melo-Death, but the guitar lines and the singing won me over. Angela Gossow has a unique voice, it really makes the songs more interesting. The lyrics are pretty average, but the music makes up for it.  :yey:

In my opinion 9 out of 11 tracks are very, very good. "The Last Enemy" is really a killer of a song!  :ok:

Does anyone know Armageddon, the band by ex-Arch Enemy member Christopher Amott?


Dark and heavy shit. If you ask me, the bass drum is loud (over the top) in the mix, but there's captivating melodic guitar work!

There's a real mix of stuff there. Fugitive Dust aside, it sounds like dark and heavy shit with a sprinkling of Dragonforce. Interesting, though, will have to listen further.

I listened to the whole album and it's pretty good. Guitar solos are top notch, but that's to be expected from Chris Amott :)

Shoot me for saying this, but I really do like both those tracks. I purchased the album based on that and, well, I'm not disappointed. Yes, I do like the Gossow stuff as well (possibly more so) but I have to hand credit to their new singer, she pulls it off.
