“War Eternal” (Single) by Arch Enemy

Artist: Arch Enemy
Title: “War Eternal” (Single)
Label: Century Media Records
Release Date: 4/29/2014
Genre: Melodic Death Metal
Rating: 4/5

Back when the news was announced on St. Patrick’s Day that longtime singer Angela Gossow had stepped down from Arch Enemy and named her successor as being Alissa White-Gluz of The Agonist a lot of the rumblings from the fans could be heard. Some were good and some not too much and now that the single “War Eternal” from the bands album of the same name is available for purchase I figured I would toss some thoughts together about track and give you a purchase link. Here we go.

The tune starts off with a strong melodic riffing that finds you getting charged up and even getting a little bit of the head banging started before Alissa comes in with the first verse. There is a superb pattern of double bass being delivered by Erlandsson and as a former skin basher I just like how this “felt” to my Metal ears. Now those who have seen The Agonist or ever heard their music before already know that Alissa is a growler, but one who has the luxury of a soaring clean register to her vocal skills as well. For this tune she sticks with the growling and quickly appears to be in command of the tune as she rallies the forces of the band with her. I liked it and wondered if there would be at least a few “clean notes” to be found here but we don’t get them. The chorus sounded powerful to me and after playing it back a couple of times I felt that it might be a great live song and envisioned the Metal masses raising their fists and singing along with her. The guitar solo from Michael Amott worked well but I expected as much since he is the guiding composing force in the group and I am sure those shredders out there will not be disappointed. For me this works overall and I am excited about the possibilities for the band going forward and to hear the full on release in a little over a month. I plan on a deeper examination when my media download link hits the mailbox so stay tuned.
