“War Eternal” will introduce a new member to ARCH ENEMY‘s ranks: Alissa White-Gluz, former vocalist of Canadian extreme metallers THE AGONIST. Angela Gossow, who joined ARCH ENEMY in 2000 and made her debut on the now classic “Wages Of Sin” (2001), has stepped down as frontwoman and will focus on management, while Alissa takes her place.

Alissa White-Gluz previously stated about her addition to the ARCH ENEMY lineup: “I am very honored and happy to announce a new chapter in my life and musical career beginning now; I have joined forces with one of my all-time favourite and globally respected bands, ARCH ENEMY. ‘Wages Of Sin’ was the first metal album I ever bought, and it was love at first listen.

“It is not often that you get a phone call from your favorite band asking you to join! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such amazingly talented musicians whom I also consider great friends. I look forward to being able to write and perform at a whole new level now with ARCH ENEMY! Music is forever, metal is limitless and this is only the beginning!”

“War Eternal” was mixed by Jens Bogren (OPETH, PARADISE LOST, KREATOR) at Fascination Street in Örebro, Sweden.

ARCH ENEMY will debut new material on a short eastern European tour before the album is released; this trek will then be followed by an extensive run of European summer festivals, including Sweden Rock Festival, Wacken Open Air and many more. A full headlining tour in North America and Europe will take place in fall/winter 2014.

ARCH ENEMY in 2012 amicably parted ways with guitarist Christopher Amott and replaced him with American musician Nick Cordle (ARSIS).

Lumus

Country: USA
Location: Portland, OR
Status: ACTIVE
Year Formed: 2009
Years Active: 01/09 - Current
Genre: Symphonic Metal
Label: Unsigned/independent

Lumus is a Dark Symphonic Metal band from Portland, Oregon. Their music is heavy, dramatic, and melodically rich, while simultaneously paying great attention to storytelling in each song.

Lumus on women of metal
Charlotte von Camp and Jon Lumus

Classical orchestration melds their rich harmonic tapestry with heavy aggressive riffing and infections off-beat rhythms. Lumus stands out among other symphonic acts in the depth and complexity of their orchestration along with blistering solo performances on guitar. Their music has a dark aggressive edge uncommon in melodic metal.

Jon Lumus founded the band in late 2009 out of need to create darker, heavier music that still challenged his classical training and background. The first single ‘The Burning Plain’ won a Director’s Award at the Nashville International Song & Lyric Writing Competition 2010. Their debut album Bacchus Curse met immediate critical acclaim, and was nominated by Metal Storm Magazine as the Best Symphonic Metal Album of 2012
