   ARCH ENEMY

Does anyone doubt that girls can sound brutal? Well, Arch Enemy will prove them wrong! When Angela Gossow joined the band in 2000, they became one of the first renowned death metal bands to feature a female vocalist. Also, founding member Mike Amott is a guitarist extraordinaire who defined the melodic death metal sound with Carcass during the early 1990s. In 2014, Angela Gossow announced her departure from Arch Enemy. At the same time she welcomed her successor: Alissa White-Gluz. Change is inevitable, war is eternal!

    HAMMERFALL

Guitarist Oscar Dronjak formed Hammerfall in 1993 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Initially the band was a side-project but as popularity grew, Hammerfall gradually became Dronjak’s main priority with the addition of vocalist Joacim Cans. Hammerfall released their debut album Glory To The Brave in 1997, and became the flag-bearers of heavy metal in the late 90s. Since then, the band have built a loyal fanbase all over the world through countless tours and timeless albums. They even have their own brand of single malt whisky called “Legacy of Kings”. How about that?

   SOULFLY

After leaving Sepultura in 1996, metal pioneer Max Cavalera started Soulfly with the intention of combining sounds with religious beliefs. Soulfly released their self-titled debut album in 1998 and have kept a steady pace since then. In 2012, Cavalera’s son Zyon was announced as the new drummer in Soulfly. This is the kid who had his in utero heartbeat sampled for the intro to Sepultura’s “Refuse/Resist”. Talk about going full circle!
