I hope these people already criticizing Alissa for joining Arch Enemy realize how wrong they are. Angela had a major role on opening the doors for female growlers in metal, she is talented and deserves the appreciation she receives. But Alissa is a stronger singer, honestly. She can do harsh and also guttural vocals, and she has a beautiful clean singing voice (though she probably won’t use that for the band). Arch Enemy got to the point of saturation, their latest album was heavily criticized as “the same old stuff”, so getting a new singer is actually a huge opportunity for them. Hopefully she’ll bring something new with her. Of course we all can and should miss Angela, but you should be welcoming Alissa with open arms, she’s their best shot right now.
