Arch Enemy have released a lyric video for another new song, this being titled “As The Pages Burn“. You can find it below via Loudwire. Band guitarist Michael Amott said of the track:

As The Pages Burn‘ almost goes back to the style of writing that I had in the late 90’s. It’s very old school Arch Enemy with an almost Slayer-vibe in the intro/verse and a huge melodic chorus. A bit like ‘The Immortal‘ and other AE classics of that time. The middle section is very classical music inspired – a twin guitar part that is a lot fun to play. Alissa wrote the lyrics for the song. This song is an example of what I love about collaborating– in the songwriting, I’m giving her the instrumental, and she comes from a different background, and the two different approaches merge together to form a very interesting result that blew my mind. It’s one of my favorite tracks on the album.”

New frontwoman Alissa White-Gluz (formerly of The Agonist) spoke of her contributions to the song:

“‘As The Pages Burn‘ is also one of my favorite songs. I think it’s going to be a very fun song to perform live. I really like fast-paced, energetic songs. A lot of the lyrics on the album are coming straight from my brain during sleepless nights. I often wake up in the middle of the night from horrible nightmares and just start writing songs. For whatever reason, I like the lyrics that I get that way, they feel real and uncensored. This song is one that I wrote at 4am in the dark, half asleep. In the morning I woke up and thought, ‘This is cool, I’m going to use this, and I know just the music to put it to’. The musical dynamics in the song are very satisfying to sing to as well. I hope you like it!”

As The Pages Burn” will appear as the fourth track on the bands new album “War Eternal“, out June 10th.
