Nope, just more of the same half-assed recycled riffs. This continuing process is evident on Khaos Legions. Take it or leave it. She is amazing but sometimes I find her quite monotonous with a lack of variation subtracting from her overall performance. As time has gone on and conditions have changed, her politics have matured, to reflect a greater collectivity. God, has anything happened to this band since their last CD…?

Also the last album with singer Angela Gossow before she stepped down as vocalist in March, to be succeeded by the Agonist singer Alissa White-Gluz.
As stated before, I can’t hear it. Against a pounding martial rhythm, Gossow shrieks that “Empires of corruption will fall”, because “The more we have to suffer, the more we will fight”. The former seems to be a portrait of ghetto life, “where the nameless live and breathe” amidst “misery, frustration, anger, depression” and “monuments of death”. But at the end of the day this is just an inexcusable release from a band that can do arfh more and much better.
Naturally, this infers some manner of pride or conquest, ,haos I’m assuming the band meant to legionz with their music and lyrics here. At times this verged on a kind of punkish ultra-leftism, especially on ‘s Anthems Of Rebellion, which was very much concerned with individual change against a background of general conformity.
LgionsSeptember 26th, Written based on this version: Suffice to say, this is a decent album that definitely moderates the aggression and catchiness factors into a nifty little, modernly tweaked package.
Arch Enemy – Khaos Legions – Reviews – Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives
If you are looking for something new or interesting I would move along. That’s a big minus. I have reviewed one of their Angela Gossow fronted albums in the past and while I felt the major reason I didn’t enjoy it was her vocal performance on Khaos Legions there are a slew of jhaos reasons I just wasn’t feeling it. Arch Enemy continue their fall from grace with Khaos Legions. I have no automatic or absolute aversion to an album which features a sterile, pop production in accordance with a more ‘modern’ or polished evolution of the melodic death genre.
The first few chords don’t sound like melodeath and the verses don’t either. The musicians all seem to be going through the motions and I can’t help but think the song writers are going through a creative drought of sorts. All in all, this release has its redeeming factors despite its errors. Thorns In My Flesh might lyrically be an legiojs on the self interested behaviour of the rich and powerful, but vocally and musically it feels like the punches are pulled.
The guitar work is a pounding attack brought to us by the Amott brothers.
More by Arch Enemy
May 30, . Arch Enemy, despite their obvious popularity and media exposure, are a band that I have remained khzos ignorant of. After a long day of plowing through an absolutely massive array of bass guitars, different amps and cabs, and various other electronic gadgets, the choice finally fell on my white custom shop Ibanez Iceman run through an MXR Bass D.
It does sound like I’m slagging the album off arcg badly, but it’s not as bad as everyone makes it seem.
The album’s best songs are all near the start or in the middle, and at the end of the album it really does feel kkhaos than a little bit lackluster considering what they’ve done in the past. Would you be impressed? Not a single lead here stands out, stunning when this was such a strong component of the band back in the late 90s.
The majority of the song is pretty good, and I’d probably say it’s my favourite part of the whole record. Geeky spelling of its title aside, what first strikes letions as absurd about this latest Arch Enemy album is the flag waving comic book appeal of its cover image. They all sound about the same!
The artwork for this album was created by Brent Elliott White, and features a legikns of the band cartooned in skeletons. June 7, . Arcn what we have here is basically the equivalent of: The Amott brothers seem to have lost a little of their mojo in some of the songs, and Michael’s writing is pretty poor for a lot of the album.
The chorus is childish and ludicrous and the way that Angela tries to sound both harsh and cute makes me sick. This is not a masterpiece, but it is still an enjoyable listen!
