Arch Enemy have announced that they are working on the follow up to 2011’s Khaos Legions album.
Guitarist and songwriter Michael Amott explains: “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,” he continues, “but there’s also another level of melody that excites me. There’s a wide spectrum of variety in the material… 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!”
The album is likely to be released later this year via Century Media and Arch Enemy play the UK’s Alt-Fest in August.
