Arch Enemy, one of the most appreciated melodic death metal bands, came back to Romania and arrived late at the concert but that was no major obstacle for the rock aficionados, especially that the event organized by Promusic Events and Maximum Rock (producer Nelu Brindusan) took place inside Turbohalle in Bucharest, an indoor location, very suitable for such a concert.
The metalcore Romanian band Goodbye to Gravity opened the show, managing to liven up the place with a good live performance. Right after, the Cluj-based band Krepuskul followed, who sang a combination of death, gothic and experimental metal and did their best to keep the hundreds of people on their toes.
All were curious how Arch Enemy will sound with their new lead vocal Alissa, former The Agonist lead vocal. She had a good performance. Obviously, Angela Gossow was the one who left her mark on the band, deemed more powerful and with a more resounding growl. “This hard machine of Swedish aggression enriched with the unique voice of Angela Gossow, one of the best vocals of the German metal school, will literally pierce the brains in the best way,” the people at Metal Hammer Germany used to say some time ago. Apart from this aspect, the new member had an honourable performance and the show remains a notable in the concerts’ agenda for 2014. The melodic death metal band Arch Enemy held their concert on occasion of launching their tenth album of their career, an album to be released in 2014. Among the songs one could hear “Tempore Nihil Sanat / Wages of Sin Intro,” “Enemy Within,” “War Eternal,” “My Apocalypse,” “Under Black Flags We March,” “The Day You Died,” “Dead Eyes See No Future,” “As The Pages Burn,” “No Gods, No Masters “ and four encores: “Yesterday Is Dead And Gone,” “Blood On Your Hands,” “Snowbound” and “Nemesis + Fields of Desolation Outro”.
