In December of the same year, Arch Enemy took part in the "Japan's Beast Feast 2002" concert, playing alongside Slayer and Motörhead.
Anthems of Rebellion was released in 2003 and brought some innovations, such as the use of a second voice singing in harmony; such as in the "End of the Line" and "Dehumanization" tracks.
The band was originally fronted by Johan Liiva, who was replaced by German Angela Gossow as lead vocalist in 2000.
Gossow left the band in March 2014 and was replaced by Canadian Alissa White-Gluz, while remaining as the group's manager.
Arch Enemy is a Swedish melodic death metal band, originally a supergroup, from Halmstad, formed in 1995.
The album caught the attention of a wider audience, gaining popularity in both Europe and America.
I wish I could change the situation but the unfortunate decision was made beyond my control so I can only wish them the very best of luck now that our time working together has concluded.""Little did I know that during that [during White-Gluz' European tour with the Agonist], The Agonist were lying to my face and they were actually going behind my back trying to find someone to replace me.
They waited through an entire European tour with me, through local shows until the last show we had booked in 2013 which was I think December 7th.
Although primarily associated with melodic death metal, she has appeared as a guest vocalist for power metal and symphonic metal bands, notably Kamelot and Delain, and has performed live with Nightwish and Tarja Turunen.
Alissa is an atheist and lives a straight edge lifestyle, which includes veganism.
