It begins with an array of songs that should be death metal classics. This album has more impressive and challenging songs than Doomsday but both albums are good solid CDs. It just sort of depends on what you're in the mood to listen to.
The musicianship, as usual, is impeccable, with the Amott brothers proving once again that they are the masters of their craft, with the bulk of their guitar work owing as much death metal overtones as they appear to be derived from a more traditional hard rock approach, particularly in the song arrangements, which rarely deviate from the conventional.
Otherwise I enjoyed this release from beginning to end; although certain killer songs such as "Enemy Within" and "Dead Bury Their Dead" are noticeably better than "Web Of Lies" and "Heart Of Darkness", even though the latter two songs are still very enjoyable.
ARCH ENEMY LYRICS - "Wages Of Sin" () album
In fact, the principle thing that excluded this band from being a full out Gothenburg cliche was the less sepulchral, more hardcore oriented shouts of Johan Liiva, a vocal character bearing more similarity to early Possessed or Kreator than any of the seminal Florida or Swedish death metal vocalists of note.
Heart Of Darkness [Music: All the while being sure this is a song that will be on their live setlist for years to come. Bash em all you want, but the majority of Opeth's riffs are pretty heavy, wagea melodic parts thrown in which don't wage to do with the heavy parts too much at all.
It immediately gets in your face, grabs you by the ears, and shakes until you can't help but give it your full attention. This is her first album with the band.
Thanks arxh chupa for correcting Track 2 lyrics. To be honest, they're the one thing that put me off of Arch Enemy in the first place.

Angela Gossow] Dark thoughts rise up Deep in your mind The killing of hope The end has begun The locked psycho-door breaks down The beast breathes freedom and fire Blows bloody thoughts into your mind Demons whisper: Web Of Lies [Music: There is always more blood to spill Angela Gossow's guttural growl it says here it's a female vocalist, though it's difficult to believe!
This was the waves age of melodeath fellas, and rest assured these guys played their part in bringing the genre to its creative height along with Soilwork, Carcass, Edge Of Sanity, Dark Tranquillity and old!
Archived from the original on August 28, As far as the production goes, I'd say that all of the instruments were well mixed in together to the point to where you can hear everything. This is genuinely a record that I feel will go down in history as one of the peaks of melodic death metal, or indeed metal as a whole. Fan favorite "Ravenous" established the blazing double kicking Arch Enemy track, this set a formula that the band would utilize on just about every post Wages of Sin release.
Web of Lies Eneny only moment that is so 80's that I must skip it is the instrumental "Snowbound" - blech, disgusting. I however cannot decipher 'Wages of Sin' and call it refreshing or give any song its own identity, for this reason I zin to say that the Swedish sound is getting rather watered down.

The lyrics aren't the best, but hey, they get the job done. The production is a bit choppy, in part due to the clicking bass drum clashing somewhat with lf heavier, bass heavy guitar tone.
In fact, Angela lays it the hell down, and if you don't find yourself hissing "carnivorous jesssusssss" you need to throw back in your favorite Motley Crue piece of dung.

But hang in there; once you gain an appreciation for the music, an acceptance and maybe even enjoyment of the vocals could follow. Angela is a known fan of Carcass and does her best to sound like Jeff Walker.
