ARCH ENEMY To Perform Entire 'Wages Of Sin' Album In Mexico City

Swedish/German extreme metallers ARCH ENEMY will perform their 2002 album, "Wages Of Sin", in its entirety on December 6 at Circo Volador in Mexico City.

Commented the band: "We are celebrating the 10th anniversary of our 'Wages Of Sin' album in 2012 — a defining release in the history of ARCH ENEMY, as you might know. We have decided to dedicate the last ARCH ENEMY concert of 2012 to this album and our Mexican fans and play it in its entirety (plus an encore of rare ARCH ENEMY songs).

"If you are anywhere near Mexico City on December 6th, don't miss out on this truly unique event which will not be repeated! Be there and become a part of ARCH ENEMY's history!"

In a 2001 interview with Metal-Rules.com, ARCH ENEMY singer Angela Gossow stated about the fans' reaction to her joining the band, "99 percent [of them] reacted very positively — most of them didn't know about my gender when they heard the [initial audio samples] first. We revealed my identity later. Many [described it as] a mixture of Jeff Walker [CARCASS] and Anders Fridén [IN FLAMES], [so] they were shocked when reading my name. I got many excited mails and great feedback on our comment site online."

ARCH ENEMY's upcoming tour of South America and Mexico will be documented for the band's next DVD, to be released in late 2013. German production company Filmefahrer Pictures, known for its work on "2012 - The Movie" and THE VERY END's music video for "A Hole In The Sun", will film the shows, conduct interviews with the bandmembers, shoot backstage footage, fans and other incidentals during the tour.

ARCH ENEMY's ninth album, "Khaos Legions", sold around 6,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 78.

The band earlier in the year amicably parted ways with guitarist Christopher Amott and replaced him with American musician Nick Cordle (ARSIS).
