But what does looking masculine have to do with anything? I mean, people don't bash Alexi Laiho too hard for looking like Avril Lavigne tongue.gif

I couldn't care less how she looks, but since the first few posts here went something like "omg she looks great" I thought I could add my view on that aswell.

I'm a huge Arch Enemy and Angela Gossow fan smile.gif I think she's got a unique growl which fits the music nicely.
But i do prefer her voice on her first Arch Enemy albums.. on the latest it sounds like there's too much effects going on.

Eh, she's okay, not really the best, but lots of people think she's the only female metal vocalist (in kansas atleast), so they're all crazy about her. I personally prefer Candace Kucsulain or Amber Valentine, but then again, I prefer everything over melodic death metal.

The band sounds good and she looks pretty decent, but thumbs down on the growling. When anyone starts doing that I hit STOP. It is just not singing to me. I can handle a little of it in the middle of a song for effect but the whole song...uh uh.

I remember when I was at an arch enemy concert and she was bitching around about people who were smoking in the hall. huh.gif And she is vegetarian huh.gif. But that aside it was a good concert.

Can't say I like Arch Enemy... But as most other people here, I thought it was a dude first time I heard her tongue.gif When a friend showed me a live video, I was like "Who's the chick, and where's the singer?" and when she started to sing, I was all "Whhaaa!" tongue.gif

I still think that Black Earth is the best arch enemy album. Johan Liiva, IMO, is just so much more raw and real than Angela, his voice isnt so drenched in effects. Early Arch Enemy Was much less toned down, than the current album.

I LOVE Arch Enemy and have for years. Personally I think she does way better on vocals then Liiva... I think she's more dynamic, Liiva just yelled pretty much every song... she actually growls and does different things with her voice that just is much more entertaining... basically after she joined Arch Enemy, I stopped wishing that every song was an instrument. I can't wait to hear the remake of their older songs that Mike mentioned that they will be doing with her. And yeah, she definitely has an incredible stage presence for such a small little package.

On a non-music-related note, I also think she's a very attractive woman and she's very friendly in person. My g/f loves her too, which is awesome! (and she wasn't even mad when i told her that I asked her because she resembles her... lol)

Average melodeath. Overrated singer just because shes a women and can growl, it seems like many guys goes crazy over her just because she's a women in extreme metal. Her gender overlook the fact that the music is staggering compare to other Extreme bands out there.


As an extreme metal band, I'd agree that they're not the best but for a melodic death band they have some good material, which I really quite like. I originally got into them because it was Michael Amott (since I'm a fan of Carcass) and his brother, not because of Angela Gossow and their stuff with Liiva before Gossow was much more technical.
In terms of attractiveness.. hmm, ok (it's a matter of personal taste) but she doesn't hold a candle to Simone Simons
Still.. they'll never compare to the best melodic death metal band in the world: Dethklok
