Arch Enemy’s New Album “Will To Power” Doesn’t Feature Much Of Jeff Loomis’ Songwriting


Though a member for roughly three years, guitarist Jeff Loomis (Conquering Dystopia, ex-Nevermore) doesn’t have a sizable writing contribution to Arch Enemy‘s forthcoming album, “Will To Power“. The band’s guitarist/mastermind Michael Amott said in the below interview:

“…He’s a strong songwriter, but not in the style of Arch Enemy, I feel. He’s always writing and recording with his own stuff. He has a project called Conquering Dystopia, he has his solo stuff, [and] he obviously wrote most of the Nevermore stuff. I’ve always respected him, and continue to respect him, as a guitar player—he’s amazing and an amazing human being; he fits in perfectly. [There’s] a great chemistry [between us].

But, you know, I’ve always written most of the music, so it’s difficult to… I don’t really wanna change the sound of the band too much. The band sort of started around my songwriting and my ideas, and those continue to be the most dominant ones, I guess. But, you know, who knows [what can happen] in the future?”

Will To Power” will be released on September 08th through Century Media.
