Arch Enemy replaced Angela Gossow with The Agonist’s singer


Actually the band’s singer, Angela Gossow, left the band and she was also the one that encouraged taking as replacement The Agosnit’s, Alissa Whit- Gluz. So check out below, Angela‘s opinion about her “retirement”:

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.

After 13 years of pure f–king metal, 6 studio albums and countless tours through five continents, I feel the need to enter a different phase in my life, be with my family and pursue other interests. I will, however, remain business manager for Arch Enemy, and I will continue to develop my artist management roster.

I am staying true to my heavy metal roots, just leaving the spotlight, so to speak. I am passing the torch to the super talented Alissa White-Gluz, whom I’ve known as a dear friend and a superb vocalist for many years. I always thought she deserved a chance to shine – and now she’s getting it. Just like I got that chance back in 2001.

I have to say that this is quite a surprise for me, because if you guys remember a week ago the band just announced some new information about their upcoming album, War Eternal, and also some fresh tour dates, but nobody said a thing about the fact that all of these won’t features their original singer.

No matter what the Arch Enemy fans say, it seems that the new singer, Alissa White-Gluz, is very excited to work with the guys from Arch Enemy:

I am very honoured and happy to announce a new chapter in my life and musical career beginning now; I have joined forces with one of my all-time favourite and globally respected bands, Arch Enemy. ‘Wages of Sin’ was the first metal album I ever bought, and it was love at first listen.

It is not often that you get a phone call from your favorite band asking you to join! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such amazingly talented musicians whom I also consider great friends. I look forward to being able to write and perform at a whole new level now with Arch Enemy! Music is forever, metal is limitless and this is only the beginning!

I’ve also read on a metal facebook page that they think this is going to be an Angela Gossow cover band, and I am not surprised if there are more to think like this about this new Arch Enemy band. In my opinion, Arch Enemy will never be the same without Angela, but I really think that we should give them a chance, music is not all about the band members is more about the art that results from their talent. So, what do you guys think about this?
