Arch Enemy Dec 5, 2017 Alamo City Music Hall San Antonio, TX

     Arch Enemy recently released their new album “Will To Power” back in September of this year.  Not only do they prove they have the Will, but they have all the means necessary to smash your face in with their sonic sound.  This was my first time seeing them perform live and I was left completely satisfied.  From the crushing drums provided by Daniel Erlandsson, I can easily see and hear why he was nominated for “Best Metal Drummer” by Rythm Magazine and Music Radar; The colossus roar of Sharlee D’Angelo on bass provided the groove on top of which master guitarists Michael Amott & Jeff Loomis laided their wicked riffs and mind boggling solos.  All of this was brought together by frontwoman Alissa White-Gluz commanding presence, letting all in attendance know they are to be dominated by their brand of metal.  So, in short, I am eager to see them live again; too bad it won’t be soon enough.
