Good news Arch Enemy fans! The Swedish metal giants are currently recording their next masterpiece, and a new update from guitarist Michael Amott is here! When asked about the musical direction of the record, he told Decibel Magazine this: “This album is actually very different from ‘Khaos Legions’. All of our albums have had their own vibe, and this one will be its own entity as well. Lyrically, it’s a much more personal record, and musically, I feel the songs have more dynamics and depth than ever before. There’s certainly very heavy and aggressive metal taking place, but there’s also another level of melody that excites me. There’s a wide spectrum of variety in the material; they’re all unique to me and I’m excited about all of them at this point. A couple of the songs feature real strings, and it’ll be interesting how our fans will take to that. I am pretty sure they’ll love it!”
I’m sure I’ll love it too! This will be their tenth release, and they just get stronger and stronger as a band. They can do no wrong! But wait there’s more! Not only will the new album come this year, but also a new live DVD! It’s Arch Enemy overload in 2014, and I say BRING IT ON!
