Arch Enemy Guitarist Speaks Of New Album’s Direction And Progress


Arch Enemy are making good progress with the studio sessions for their next album. The bands lead guitarist Michael Amott recently told Decibel:

“We tracked drums at Fascination Street Studio, and we’ve been recording guitars and bass in another room. We’ll do the vocals in a third studio, and the mix and mastering will done by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street. It’s all going according to plan; it’s been running very smoothly. Vocals and few guitar solos left to do, and the mix, of course.”

Speaking on the direction, he stated:

“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!”
