A Swedish melodic death metal band, Arch Enemy was originally classified as a "supergroup," from which members came from previous fame. They were formed in Halmstad in '96, and have released nine albums, two DVDs and three EPs. Their debut, "Black Earth" brought moderate success in some countries.
Signing with Century Media, they released "Stigmata" in '98 and "Wages of Sin" in '01, both somewhat successful. They participated in the "Japan's Beast Feast 2002" event, and released "Anthems of Rebellion" in '03, adding a second voice in harmony for the first time. "Khaos Legions," a working title, is projected for 2011.
