Khaos Legions was such a bland melo dm record, and I'm usually a fan of this band.

Its funny how angela gossow acts like she is a bad as metal head. When most of the fans there are more than likey dreaming of her naked, rather than listening to her "revoultionary" or "political" messages. women are funny

That may be, Ovrot, but her vocals are really just a one trick pony... If you compare them to male growls hers fall short, sadly.

You are so right Tyrael, I hate admitting it but they get boring after 1 album. I didnt even bother checking out the new album and I wont bother checking this out. Honestly Arch Enemy is nooby dm.

This is what arch enemy needs to improve on.

Drumming. Needs to be more brutal.
Vocals. Mix it up like ovrot said and maybe duel vox, who knows maybe one of the amott brothers can growl.
Riffs. FUCK MELO DETH LOL. Needs moar brutal riffs.

Amott brothers are great guitarist, and the music is good. Gossow is their weakness

Sorry, but that's the men's problem for thinking with their dicks and objectifying women who try to break into metal.

That said, her political messages aren't very revolutionary and this band got boring a while ago. Still, I might see them for old time's sake (only because the friend who got me into them asked, haha), when they roll around here on tour.

Not really, she is a horrible vocalist. Sorry to hurt your Neo-Feminist idealism. But women do not make growlers.

"That said, her political messages aren't very revolutionary and this band got boring a while ago"

Really? A lot of her lyrics are about revolution and anti-establishment. Like some Bolshevik idea of revolution by force and arms.

Sure they were about revolution and such but like much lyrics in death metal they arent meant to be taken so so seriously and im sure some women could train to be excellent growlers

Thats true. But dont agree with you about women being able to growl as well as males. Even with training, their vocals are not deep enough. I mean gossow is one of the strongest female growlers i have heard, and shes horrible. Which is a shame, because this band is great.

I don't think it holds a candle to Anthems or Doomsday

Hahahaha, then why the fuck are those men going to her concerts if they think she's not that great of a growler? If they're going more because they think she's hot, yeah, that is objectifying her.
Did I even say that I like her as a vocalist that much? No. I myself don't think women are as good at growling as men, just because our vocal ranges are different. So don't assume that I think she's awesome just because I'm a woman. I just don't appreciate your implication that it's her fault that she's not being taken seriously.

"Really? A lot of her lyrics are about revolution and anti-establishment. Like some Bolshevik idea of revolution by force and arms."

You better be being sarcastic.

Objectifying their vocalist isn't worth sitting through their awful music.

The vox suck, doesn't matter if the lead singer is a woman or a man.

I thought her vocals were fine on Doomsday, Anthems & Tyrant. Idunno, their last two records (including the cover album) have just been gratingly difficult to get through. Don't know what exactly happened.

Pretty much, Angel, but I've definitely seen plenty of people put up with it for a lot of female-fronted metal bands, or any metal band with a "hot woman" in it. It's pretty demeaning to be less critical of someone based on her sex, but, then again, the metal scene isn't exactly known for having the most progressive views on women.

This band just got old and their formula for rebellious metal anthems (lol) doesn't work anymore.

Yeah I suppose Vesper, I'm listening to Anthems of Rebellion right now and I still feel that it rules and I don't mind her vocals. Whenever I hear a new song from these guys I just can't stand it, maybe her vocals are higher up in the mix now or something? I don't get it.

Frontwomen in more popular metal bands seem to almost always come off as a gimmick, which takes away from the slim few that actually have some talent. Don't expect me to be caught dead at a Kittie show just 'cause their members are relatively attractive lol.

Kittie members gotta keep coming out with new records to afford wrinkle cream brah.

Eh, I just feel like they're reusing so many themes and riffs with similar song structures (here comes the Michael Amott solo!!!1!) that it just got really tedious for me, so I can't sit through anything they're putting out anymore. I can still listen to their old stuff out of nostalgia for my *melodeath phase*, hahaha.

Yeah, don't even get me started on bands like In This Moment or Lacuna Coil...
I'd never speak to you again if you went to a Kittie show, Angel.
Well, maybe, but I'd lose all respect for your taste in music, lol.
