Not to flood you with Arch Enemy-related stuff today, but I just got word about the brand new, just releasedfrom Arch Enemy. “War Eternal” is the video and track the band is using to introduce their new lead singer, .
So, here’s the new video, produced by none other than Patric Ullaeus. It’s very typical Arch Enemy in its aesthetics and the sound is amazingly aggressive. Alissa has big combat boots to fill, and I think she’s doing it pretty well. No doubt, given her youth and different way of being on stage/performing (she’s more theatrical whereas Angela Gossow was more metal), you can see a dynamic shift in the video, however slight it might be.
“War Eternal” will be also available for streaming through Spotify (starting Friday, March 21st in the early morning hours).
Chief song-writer, guitarist, and band leader Michael Amott comments:
This is a day to remember. It is such a great feeling to come back with new music and to unleash the first single and video off ‘War Eternal’. Behold the first chapter of the new ARCH ENEMY saga… This is f**king war!
Arch Enemy will unleash their 9th studio album, War Eternal, worldwide via Century Media Records and Trooper Entertainment in Japan in early June 2014. The War Eternal world tour will commence in May with an extensive run through Europe. A U.S. tour is planned for fall 2014.
Let the eternal war begin!
