Company: Century Media
Release: 2017
Genre: Heavy/Extreme
Reviewer: Eric Compton

Swedish extreme heaviness showcased live
Comments:
This is the first live audio recording for the band since 2008 and first with singer Alissa White-Gluz. 'As the Stages Burn' captures the band's performance at Wacken in 2016. Out of the 16 cuts presented, 6 are from the band's newest record 'War Eternal'. I like that the new and old are showcased in abundance. This also marks the first Arch Enemy recording to feature new guitarist Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore). Great energy. Solid sound. Phenomenal band.
Recommended for fans of:
Carcass, At the Gates, In Flames
