Product description

Soaring melodies, brutal death metal riffing, hit after hit - ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott is an unchallenged songwriter genius

Interview

Bio:
“I think we took a ‘more is more’ approach to this record.”

So says ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott when referring the band’s new platter of mayhem, “Khaos Legions”. Not that they’ve ever tackled any aspects of their career with a half-baked attitude, but the approach was particularly important after four years of creative silence.

The band has been far from quiet since the 2007 release of “Rise Of The Tyrant”, of course. During the extensive tour cycle for the album, ARCH ENEMY saw fit to preserve their trademark sonic violence on the live 2008 record, “Tyrants Of The Rising Sun”, returning to the studio a year later to re-record some of their early work and live fan favourites for “The Root Of All Evil”. Amott will be the first to tell you, however, that he and his bandmates have been waiting a long time to create something brand new from the ground up.

““Root Of All Evil” was cool to do,” Amott insists, “but it wasn’t really creative at all. None of that material was new to us. We were itching to get into the studio and record all the things we’ve been talking about backstage for the last few years. We knew we had to come back with something really good because it’s been four years since the “Rise Of The Tyrant” album. We’ve kept the fans waiting long enough.”

“Khaos Legions” was well worth the wait. A solid 14 tracks – 11 songs and three instrumental passages – it’s an album that immediately recalls “Anthems Of Rebellion” (2003) and “Doomsday Machine” (2005), considered up to this point to be ARCH ENEMY’s two strongest outings to date. Loaded with the Amott brothers’ trademark guitar shred, spearheaded by vocalist Angela Gossow’s instantly recognizable hell-hathno- fury delivery, all backed by the Sharlee D’Angelo / Daniel Erlandsson bass / drum high energy stomp, “Khaos Legions” features the band’s trademark extreme metal execution coupled with some eyebrow-raising
surprises along the way.

Eight studio albums and 15 years into their career, “Khaos Legions” is ARCH ENEMY’s iron “You are here!” stamp that hits like a ton of bricks.

“This album is kind of nuts,” says Amott. “It’s a very exciting record for me because it encapsulates everything that ARCH ENEMY is about. It was written over a four year period, so I think that’s why it’s got a lot of depth and girth to it”.
