Arch Enemy – “Doomsday Machine” – Complete – Michael Amott Speaks Out

ARCH ENEMY‘s new album entitled “Doomsday Machine” is completed. The sixth studio album of the band’s career is said to be, “probably the most intense and interesting piece of work” they have assembled in their career so far. Guitarist & songwriter Michael Amott comments:

“I was at Andy Sneap’s studio in England these last few days and we put the final touches to the album ? it is now mixed and mastered and ready to be delivered to our record labels?finally! Yes, it took longer than we anticipated, but listening to it now?it’s such a big step up for us ? on every level. I am excited about the songs, the production and overall ÜBER-METAL feel of this new album!!! It’s definitely been worth all the hard work!”

The tracklisting has been confirmed as

Enter The Machine
Taking Back My Soul
Nemesis
My Apocolypse
Carry The Cross
I am Legend / Out For Blood
Skeleton Dance
Hybrids Of Steel
Mechanic God Creation
Machtkampf
Slaves Of Yesterday

The album’s cover art was done by acclaimed artist Joachim Luetke (DIMMU BORGIR, DESTRUCTION, etc.) – Michael added:

“We are all extremely pleased with the artwork for the new album! I had a few ideas initially that I discussed with Joachim on the phone, and when he started sending over images, we were seriously blown away. When you work with creative people of this caliber, you just let them do what they do, so we just let him get on with it. He’s a very productive guy, very sharp. He expanded on the ‘Doomsday Machine’ concept and took it to some really interesting (albeit very dark) places. It’s one of those great situations when the artwork totally works with the music.”

Nevermore – “Final Product” Mp3 Posted, Video Filmed

Preparing for the July 26th North American release of their magnum opus, This Godless Endeavor, Seattle’s NEVERMORE filmed the video for “Final Product” in Los Angeles this past weekend. On the video shoot and its concept vocalist Warrel Dane commented: “We shot the video last Saturday for ‘Final Product’ with director Kevin Leonard (HIMSA, DIECAST), and it was a blast. He came up with a great concept, capturing the vibe of the song perfectly. Lots of manic live band shots and a brilliant performance by an actor named Bob Jones, who played a creepy character obsessed by the dreaded black seeds referred to in the lyrics. It’s going to be one hell of a video, and we were all really happy to be working with Kevin again.” Pictures from the video shoot can be found at this location.

When asked what is the band will be doing in the forthcoming weeks, Dane commented: “Next step, some rehearsals for festival dates in Europe and then Gigantour. We’ll be playing three rotating sets on Gigantour, so fans going to more than one show will get to hear different songs. This way we’ll be fully prepared for our European headlining tour that starts immediately afterwards. Plans are in the works for another U.S. tour, but nothing is confirmed as of yet. Until then, see you on Gigantour.”

This Godless Endeavor was recorded in England with celebrated producer Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, ARCH ENEMY), who recently remastered the band’s 2003 album Enemies Of Reality. Gigantour, which features MEGADETH, DREAM THEATER, FEAR FACTORY, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, LIFE OF AGONY and more, will run across North America from late July to September. Dates can be found on the Century Media website by clicking here. To listen to “Final Product,” the first single from This Godless Endeavor, click here.
