Ass Buster!: Did the CARCASS reunion shows clash with Arch Enemy's tour schedule ? Gossow: "Well, I guess. But we needed a break. At least I did! Too much touring takes the fun out of being in a band. Its good to get some rest to become hungry again! And I am def. looking forward to those German tour dates in December this year now! And Carcass fucking deserve their 2nd life!!!" Ass Buster!: You guys are re-recording your earlier releases, would there be any possible collaboration with Johan Liiva (former singer)? Gossow: "Maybe. Interesting idea! I wouldn't have any problems with it - Johan kicks ass!" Ass Buster!: It seems like you guys have ALOT in store, is it true that you guys are already writing material for an upcoming album ? Gossow: "Yes. we always write. Music keeps pouring out of us - what can you do?!" For the full interview click here "A Word" With Angela Gossow from Arch Enemy
Dean Guitars, who make some of the most bad ass guitars on the planet, made this announcement on their Web site: "Dean Guitars is proud to announce that guitarist extraodinaire Michael Amott of Arch Enemy and Carcass has signed on with Dean guitars. Dean CEO Elliott Rubinson states, 'I have been a fan of Michael for some time and we are extremely excited that he has decided to make Dean guitars his home. Michael Amott is a very well respected guitarist worldwide and we look forward to working very closely with him to design his dream guitar. 'I contacted Dean guitars,' said Arnott, 'as I was looking for the right guitar company and I knew that if people like Michael Schenker, Dave Mustaine, Dimebag and Leslie West have made Dean their home that I needed to check it out. They sent me two V's to check out and I immediately fell in love with them. I am sure my new signature guitar will meet all of my demands as well as the needs of my fans around the globe.'" Arnott is a seriously incredible guitarist, and this is a big score for Dean. I look forward to an Arnott custom, as I'm sure the former Carcass man can come up with something epic.
