War Eternal by Arch Enemy
Released: Jun 2014
Label: Century Media
With frontwoman Angela Gossow stepping back to manage the band, Canadian Alissa White-Gluz assumes microphone duties for these Swedish melodic death-metal stalwarts, and mostly they come out resembling a rapcore group. What saves the day somewhat are the guitarists' fancy tapestries and curlicues -- basically, the sadder, schmaltzier and more soundtrack-like this album sounds, the more tolerable it gets. High points include dark operatic intro "Tempore Nihil Sanat (Prelude in F Minor)," flat-lining dirge "Not Long for This World" and electro-spiked Mike Oldfield cover "Shadow on the Wall."
