Arch Enemy: kündigen neues Album 'War Eternal' an
Arch Enemy:  kündigen neues Album 'War Eternal' an
Drei Jahre nach der Veröffentlichung von "Khaos Legions" und ihrer bis dato erfolgreichsten Welttournee starten die Extrem Metal Ikonen, ARCH ENEMY, den Mix an ihrem neunten Studioalbum mit Jens Bogren (OPETH, PARADISE LOST, KREATOR) im schwedischen Fascination Street Studio..

Band Gründer und Guitarist Michael Amott erklärt: "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 (drums) and Nick Cordle (guitar).

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".

Michael zu dem Titel des neuen Albums: "A lot of times life is a struggle, a war against what I like to call 'mental chains' in society that try to prevent you from living life the way you want, that try to stop you from making your dreams come true. I have always resented that and I always will. The title sums up our collective attitude a band as well; stages will be destroyed, eardrums will bleed. There will be no choice. This, ladies and gentlemen, is 'War Eternal'..."

ARCH ENEMY werden erste Songs vom neuen Album schon auf einer kurzen Warm-Up Tour in Ost Europa präsentieren, bevor das Album Anfang Juni 2014 erscheinen wird. Dann geht es direkt weiter mit etlichen Sommer Festivals. Gerade Deutsche Fans dürfen sich über eine feine Auswahl an Festivals freuen. Im Herbst bis Winter geht es durch die beheizten Hallen von Nordamerika und ganz Europa, um "War Eternal" ausführlich vorzustellen.
