On November 11, Tristen Lang conducted an interview with ARCH ENEMY frontwoman Alissa White-Gluz and guitarist Michael Amott in Kansas City, Missouri during the band’s tour with TRIVIUM, WHILE SHE SLEEPS and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY. You can now watch the chat below.
Asked what it’s like to be a female musician in the male-dominated heavy metal scene, Alissa said: “In general, people that we meet in person are pretty cool people — always very respectful, just happy to be there, happy to enjoy the music.
“Quite honestly, I don’t pay much attention to pop culture and don’t have any interest in it, so I don’t know what those ladies are subject to.
“Of course, there are always obstacles with being the oddball in any situation, and so, of course, in this situation, I am the oddball. But it’s just something that you deal with.
