Arch Enemy Unveil Cover Art For New Album “Will To Power”, Announce European Tour


Arch Enemy have revealed the cover art (see below) for their tenth studio album, “Will To Power“, which will be released September 08th via Century Media. Alex Reisfar is responsible for the cover art with guitarist Michael Amott commenting of it:

“It was a pleasure working with Alex Reisfar on the ‘Will To Power‘ cover artwork, he immediately grasped the concept and atmosphere we were looking for with this album. We talked about the double edged sword that is human ambition, how it can be outstandingly creative and beautiful but can also be turned into something dark and powerful.

Alex proceeded to masterfully paint a strong image that evokes a lot of feelings. The human skull as a central focal point, the flesh sort of falling off into the circular pattern. The snake ouroboros weaving in and out of the mouths and throats of the severed heads of a wolf, a goat and a vampire bat… All representing self determination and a predatory, almost parasitic will to power”

Amott and the band’s drummer Daniel Erlandsson co-produced the album, which was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, At The Gates). In other news, the band have teased an upcoming fall U.S. tour and have announced the following run of dates for a European run with Jinjer.
