Arch Enemy new single In The Eye Of The Storm here at 5 pm

Arch Enemy will release their new single, In The Eye Of The Storm, today at 5 pm BST, along with a video directed by Mirko Witzki. The song is taken from the album Deceivers, due 12 August.

“In The Eye Of The Storm is a song that was built around a hypnotizing riff and a groove that’s just screaming out to be played live,” Michael Amott said. “Shooting the video in Berlin, Germany with, for us, new director Mirko Witzki was a super cool experience, and the result is nothing less than astonishing.”

Arch Enemy play five festivals this year, and after the album is out, dates with Carcass follow. “I just saw Carcass play in California,” Michael told MetalTalk in an interview last month. “I’m still good friends with them. I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun.”

Arch Enemy were formed in 1995 by former Carnage members Amott and Johan Liiva, and while it might originally have been seen as a one-off project, it certainly exploded.

“I didn’t really know what it was going to become,” Amott says. “We made those choices, we found the band name, but we didn’t think that 25 plus years later, we would still be talking about this.”

The first album was Black Earth, released in ’96. “It came out on a very small label of a friend who, at the time, put it out in Sweden. But what happened was that he got it licensed to a Japanese label, and that label really built up the band there. We started touring there. We were the first Melodic Death Metal band that played in Japan. We became the biggest and remained the biggest band of that style over there. It’s been a very long relationship in that territory.”
