This summer, we could have new Arch Enemy tunes to not listen to.
Yes, it’s true — Arch Enemy are now recording what will be their eighth album.
It could be out in the late spring, if you can imagine that.
The new music is being laid down at a few different studios in Sweden.
“We tracked drums at Fascination Street Studio, and we’ve been recording guitars and bass in another room,” Michael Amott tells Decibel.
“We’ll do the vocals in a third studio, and the mix and mastering will done by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street.”
According to Mike, “it’s all going according to plan; it’s been running very smoothly. Vocals and [a] few guitar solos left to do, and the mix, of course.”
Mike’s a rad dude, but bailing on that Carcass reunion was kind of weak.
I guess he had his reasons.
As far as what fans can expect, Amott says “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!”
