Arch Enemy are a Swedish band whose primary genre is melodic death metal. Originally founded in 1996 as a supergroup by guitarist Michael Amott and vocalist Johan Liiva, the band released three albums; Black Earth, Stigmata and Burning Bridges.

In 2000, Liiva was asked to leave the band. His replacement turned out to be Angela Gossow, a German singer with a major case of Singing Voice Dissonance. Her first album with the band, 2001's Wages of Sin, was the band's breakthrough album. Chris Amott left again in 2012 and was replaced by Nick Cordle; additionally, in March 2014, Angela Gossow announced her departure and welcomed Alissa White-Gluz of The Agonist as her replacement. Around the end of 2014, Nick Cordle was fired for undisclosed reasons and was replaced by Jeff Loomis.
