Arch Enemy Studio News
Arch Enemy have posted an update on their website about the band’s progress on work on their next album. Guitarist Michael Amott said the following:
“As you know – we are finally in the studio with Arch Enemy to record the follow up to 2003′s ‘Anthems of Rebellion’ and I am happy to report that everything is going very, very well…
“We are working at Slaughterhouse studio in Halmstad, Sweden with Rickard Bengtsson (producer and engineer)…so the studio is close and we can live at home and still record this album – which is great!
“As usual, we need someone with a critical pair of ears recording us and Rickard Bengtsson is making us work hard at making the ULTIMATE METAL ALBUM! Our poor little musician fingers are bleeding! HA!”
As for what the new album might sound like, Michael said:
“The grooves of these new tracks are catchy and powerful as hell, really making the songs come alive. We have some amazing riffs on this new album…oh yes. Maybe the fact that we are all jumping around the studio, headbanging, playing air guitar/drums is a good sign?? Let’s hope so, eh!?
“I do feel that we are capturing some of that old metal magic here… You know, back in the day when bands would spit out one classic riff after the other – with such incredible ease and flair! Sometimes I think that the KILLER hard rock/metal riff is in danger of dying… But we are doing out best here to revitalize it!!! Wooohoooo….”
