Sounds | Arch Enemy, Sunset Over The Empire


Vierde single uit het nieuwe album en ... ik hoor eigenlijk al vier keer min of meer dezelfde song. Ik omschreef het eerder als 80's power metal. De riffs in deze nieuwe song leunen echter net iets meer tegen hedendaagse modern (groove) metal aan en zo maken Amott en de zijnen toch even de sprong naar vandaag. Als extreme metal (cfr. de pr tekst) zou ik dit echter niet omschrijven.


Deceivers verschijnt op 29 juli via Century Media Records.

Arch Enemy's founder and chief songwriter Michael Amott comments: "Behold the 'Sunset Over The Empire', the 4th single from our upcoming 'Deceivers' album! This is a faster song with some manic riffs and a relentless beat that I can envision becoming a 'hit in the pit'! Lyrically, it's sadly one of those that seems to ring more true with each and every passing day nowadays...'Words turned to war, brother fighting brother, another false truce, as the people die...'. The accompanying video was shot in Poland with the Grupa13 team and doesn't follow the lyrics slavishly but has a great message and vibe in its own right. Oh, and I'm stoked that we're releasing 'Sunset Over The Empire' as a limited edition physical single on 7" vinyl!"
