Melodic metal masters ARCH ENEMY have returned full force ahead as they prepare to release their forthcoming album, "Will To Power", out September 8, 2017 via Century Media Records.
ARCH ENEMY is a Swedish melodic death metal band, originally a supergroup, from Halmstad, formed in 1996. Its members were in bands such as CARCASS, ARMAGEDDON, CARNAGE, MERCYFUL FATE, SPRITITUAL BEGGARS, NEVERMORE and EUCHARIST. It was founded by CARCASS guitarist Michael Amott along with Johan Liiva, who were both originally from the influential death metal band CARNAGE. The band has released nine studio albums, two live albums, three video albums and three EPs. The band was originally fronted by Johan Liiva, who was replaced by German Angela Gossow as lead vocalist in 2000. Gossow left the band in March 2014 and was replaced by Canadian Alissa White-Gluz, while remaining as the group's manager.
"Will To Power" will mark the first album the band have recorded with their current line-up -- ALISSA WHITE-GLUZ (Vocals), MICHAEL AMOTT (Guitars), JEFF LOOMIS (Guitars), SHARLEE D'ANGELO (Bass), and DANIEL ERLANDSSON (Drums).
The album is Co-produced by guitarist Michael Amott and drummer Daniel Erlandsson, "Will To Power" was sent to Jens Bogren (OPETH, AT THE GATES, DIMMU BORGIR) for mixing and mastering and marks legendary guitarist Jeff Loomis' (NEVERMORE) first recording with the band.
Mastermind Michael Amott comments,
"We've been hard at work on the new album for a while now and we're proud to present the first taste of new ARCH ENEMY music in over three years with our new single and video, 'The World Is Yours'! This was the first song I wrote for the upcoming 'Will To Power' album and Daniel (Erlandsson, drums) helped me arrange and finish it up. One of many songs we co-wrote and co-produced this time around. We had a blast recording together with the full band in the south of Sweden and then mixing with Jens Bogren, who did a superb mix and mastering - in my opinion even surpassing the epic sound on our previous record, 'War Eternal'. People that have heard this song in particular are saying it's got the classic anthemic ARCH ENEMY vibe going on, and I think they might be right about that... Looking forward to playing it live on stage later this summer!”
Following the immense critical acclaim from their anthem-laden triumph of 2014, "War Eternal", ARCH ENEMY will continue to bring their thunderous live performances to fans worldwide on the "Will To Power 2017 International Tour" this fall, followed by a busy summer making appearances across the European festival market. The first leg of the tour will stretch across Eastern Europe from September 15 to October 11 with direct support from Jinjer. Further dates across Europe and North America are soon to be revealed. See below for a full listing of upcoming shows!
Today’s tune "The World Is Yours” is taken from the upcoming album "Will To Power"
