Arch Enemy - Announce New Album Release

On July 29th 2022, Arch Enemy will release their 11th studio album, Deceivers. The new music output comes 5 years after the release of Will To Power and encompasses 11 new tunes. Fans can expect the new single - "Handshake With Hell" - to drop next week (Friday, February 4th) along with the album pre-order start.

Michael Amott comments:
"Having just celebrated our 25th anniversary as a group and now releasing our 11th studio album, one could easily assume that we would be cruising along and going through the motions at this point. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to Arch Enemy and our new album, Deceivers. It is without a doubt always a challenge to raise the bar each time in both the songwriting and production side of things, and it can feel a bit daunting before we get into it. But once we do get started and fully immerse ourselves in the creative process, it's really like there is nothing else in the world and we are very focused. And believe it or not, for the most part, we have a ton of fun making this music! Creating Deceivers was no different, once again we shut out the outside world and went deep into the artistic zone. I believe we pulled out some really interesting musical and lyrical themes this time, a few things might even raise an eyebrow or two - while retaining all the signature elements of the band. In the end, it's Arch Enemy at full speed and power!"

Ha, one of the most stale bands in metal right now talking about raising the bar with each new album. GTFOH. It's frustrating as hell considering the all-star lineup they have.

And this album cover looks like shit.
Their old stuff is better.

Again, Alyssa in the spotlight. I don't care if the music is OK. The cover is horrible and the song titles are too cheesy, too power-metalesque IMO. Thx.

Kamelot: “‘Liar, Liar’ would be our most embarrassing song title yet. At least we got Alyssa to do some vocals.”

Arch Enemy: “So track two is going to be the title track of our new album right? ‘Deceivers’ it is!”

Alyssa: “Nah that shit is getting old, I have a better idea”

Is this a joke?
This can't be the cover of the album...

Looking to the cover one could easily mistake them for Nightwish.

Regarding actual music I dont expect much their good days are long gone.
