Formed by guitarist Michael Amott after his departure from the now legendary Carcass and years before the introduction of their amazing German female singer Angela Gossow, ARCH ENEMY first garnered praise with the metal milestone Black Earth in 1996. This first album of a band which would later become one of the biggest of its genre, featuring original singer Johan Liiva, was propelled by flawlessly technical dual guitars and a previously unheard mixture of melody and aggression – an alchemy that redefined the limits of melodic death metal. Black Earth was the foundation of a unique trademark sound which helped the band to quickly solidify their reputation as one of the genre’s elites, which it is nowadays.
