Founded by the Amott brothers after Michael Amott left Carcass. Originally with Johan Liiva as singer, the band's debut entitled Black Earth was released by the now defunct Swedish label Wrong Again Records in 1996. It obtained a fair amount of success in Japan, achieving MTV rotation with their first single "Bury Me an Angel", as well as moderate success in Sweden.
 It is a common misconception that Johan Liiva played bass on Black Earth - it was in fact played by Michael Amott, who gave the credit to Liiva to make the album seem more like a band effort than a side project (which is what Arch Enemy essentially was at the time). The band signed a contract with Century Media Records for the release of Stigmata in 1998. This was the first Arch Enemy album to be released worldwide and it caught the attention of a wider audience, gaining popularity in both Europe and America.
 In November 2000, Johan Liiva was sacked as the vocalist with the cited reasons being "a failure to perform adequately live". Angela Gossow, originally from Germany, replaced Liiva as vocalist. The first album featuring Gossow was Wages of Sin, released in 2001. This is also the first album where the band used C tuning, which they have kept until the present. That same year, Arch Enemy took part in the "Japan's Beast Feast 2002" concert, playing alongside Slayer and Motörhead.
Christopher Amott left the band on good terms after finishing Doomsday Machine to return to college. After Gus G. filled in on their Ozzfest tour dates, Fredrik Åkesson stepped in to take on full time guitar duties, but ended up never featuring on a recording session as Christopher rejoined in March 2007. On March 3, 2012, after the release of Khaos Legions, it was announced on the band's Facebook page that Christopher Amott had once again departed from the band. He was replaced by Nick Cordle from Arsis.
Alissa White-Gluz from The Agonist replaced Angela Gossow as singer in 2014. Later that same year, Nick Cordle left, to be replaced by Jeff Loomis.
 The original lineup reunited in 2016 under the monicker of Black Earth.
