Meh, her vocals are not bad but they seem like someone pretending to be a Metal Vocalist rather than actually just being one. The aggressive stuff didn't seem natural and the melodic stuff didn't have any depth in it.
As much as he's a massive piece of shit as human being, Tommy was the perfect fit for this band vocally.
Well Angela was kind of ground-breaking, at least for mainstream death metal. Hot take but I actually think Alyssa does it all better, but the songs underneath suck.I've noticed that a lot of female growlers/death metal vocalists always seems to go for that Angela gossow sound. Anyone else notice that or is it just me?
Once human is sick, so hopefully this rebirth of DH will sound good. Too bad about Tim Yeung though. He's a beast behind the kit.
I always felt Angela sounded meaner. More raw. Alyssa seems to be moving more air and perhaps uses the techniques from the Zen of screaming and to my ears sounds a little less broken/distorted/nasty.Well Angela was kind of ground-breaking, at least for mainstream death metal.

I saw them with Angela a handful of times, definitely my favorite point of Arch Enemy.I think I would've liked that more if I hadn't seen the video She looks like she's doing a pop cover or something and it's almost like she's a bit out of sync. Sounded OK though, not super mega exciting or anything, but I wouldn't mind hearing her on the future DH material.
Probably from a technical standpoint, yes, but IMO Angela just sounded more brutal. Having seen AE with both vocalists, I gotta say they're much more boring these days even though they still play many of the old songs. Of course it's not all due to the vocals, but still.
