Interview – Michael Amott & Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy

Interview – Michael Amott & Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy

Change is an undeniable part of life that everyone needs to deal with, and Sweden’s powerhouse Metal band Arch Enemy is no exception to that rule.  Surprising fans back in March, Arch Enemy went public with the news that long-time vocalist Angela Gossow would be handing over the torch to The Agonist’s Alissa White-Gluz.  Immediately injecting themselves back into the Metal limelight, the band unleashed War Eternal, marking the first studio album to feature White-Gluz on vocals.  Silencing skeptics and marching through intense touring in Europe, Arch Enemy returned to North America for the first time in three years with Kreator.  On the second evening of a 26-date run, CrypticRock sat down with lead guitarist/songwriter Michael Amott and vocalist Alissa White-Gluz for an exclusive look at the tour, time in the studio for War Eternal, the rebirth of Arch Enemy, and more.
