BEST NEWS EVER! The mighty Arch Enemy will be releasing their highly anticipated new album, “War Eternal,” on June 10th via Century Media Records! Guitarist Michael Amott previously said this on the new material “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!”
You want to know more right?! Here you go! He released this statement yesterday: “We’ve been producing ourselves, as we did on “Khaos Legions”. We have a clear vision of what we want Arch Enemy to sound like and we can actually achieve it without the help of outside producers, we also have the advantage of having two talented sound engineers among our ranks in Daniel Erlandsson and Nick Cordle. We’ve been tracking at a few different studios here in Sweden, the drums at Fascination Street Studio and guitars and bass in another room. We just finished vocals in a third studio with engineer Staffan Karlsson (“Khaos Legions”) and the mix and mastering will done by Jens Bogren at his Fascination Street mixing facility. Musically, this album is going a few places we haven’t visited before. As our fans have come expect, our albums have all had their own vibe and “War Eternal” will leave its own mark. Lyrically it’s a much more personal record and I feel the songs have more dynamics and depth than ever before, the songs are loaded with strong and vicious metal drenched in tons of melody and emotion. All the trademarks of Arch Enemy are present, just more in your face and turned up to 11.”
So we have an unexpected, personal album on our hands that will leave it’s own mark! If any band can do it, Arch Enemy can! Finally, the wait is over and new music is coming on June 10th! GET READY!
