Price: $21-$23

Swedish metal band Arch Enemy may be most known for its searing female vocalist Angela Gossow, but really, much respect must be paid to Michael Amott, not only the band's guitarist but also its main composer. Songs like "Blood On Your Hands" on last year's Rise of the Tyrant showcase his strong skill at arrangements, excellent tone, and complex intros. As he has done in his past efforts (most notably Carcass), Amott also tries to expand musically in his guitar playing with more commercially viable, melodic passages. That said, Gossow shouldn't be underestimated; her dynamic energy (female or not) is almost unparalleled in the genre. See them at Slim's with Dark Tranquility, Divine Heresy, and Firewind on May 29. 8 p.m., $21, $23.
