Well, since Angela Gossow has passed the torch to another singer, we decided to give this new singer a warm welcome. For the record, Angela Gossow stepped down on her own and still remains business manager of Arch Enemy. She just needed to spend more time with her family.
Alissa White-Gluz, the new singer of Arch Enemy
The good news is the new singer is Alissa White-Gluz. Alissa White-Gluz, like her predecessor, has a pretty sick growl. We wish her the best of luck and hope she can match Angela’s strong stage presence.
A short bio on Alissa White-Gluz
Alissa White-Gluz is a Canadian singer. She was the founding member of the Canadian Melodic Death Metal band The Agonist, from Montreal, Canada. Like Angela Gossow before White-Gluz before her in Arch Enemy, White-Gluz has a very strong growl. We’re not clear whether White-Gluz left The Agonist on good terms or not, but like we’ve said and want to make very clear, White-Gluz joined Arch Enemy with Angela Gossow’s blessing and Gossow still is their business manager.
This is a video from Arch Enemy’s latest album War Eternal. It is called “You Will Know My Name.” And yes Alissa White-Gluz, we will know your name.
We are looking forward to seeing the band with their new singer when they come out to the States later on this year. They’re currently touring in Europe.
