In a recent interview on M. Shawn Crahan’s, the Clown from Slipknot that is, internet show, Arch Enemy front woman, Alissa White Guls revealed that she is finishing up her first solo album.
“With Arch Enemy, I basically do screams — I’m growling; that’s the type of vocals that I do. But I actually do clean vocals a lot too, and not that many people know that. I’ve done a lot of guest appearances with other bands and other artists where I use that clean voice, but I don’t really use it that much in Arch Enemy. So the solo thing is kind of just giving me an outlet to do basically any type of vocal acrobatics that I wanna do, whether it be blues-style singing, which I have a guest thing coming out soon like that, which is pretty cool. Rock singing, power metal singing, opera singing… Basically, the idea is that it’s a way for me to kind of get my musical rocks off in any way that I want, and it’s separate from Arch Enemy. So I don’t have to go in and dilute Arch Enemy or change what that’s about it, ’cause that wouldn’t be right either. It’s basically something that I kind of just had as this ongoing project that I’ve been working on any time I had time off from Arch Enemy touring, which was basically no time until this year. So I’ve been working a lot on it this year and recording it at a home studio that I built. And, yeah, so far I really like it, and I’m looking forward to finishing it up”, Alissa said.
