"Beast Of Man", the new video from Swedish/German extreme metallers ARCH ENEMY, can be viewed below. The clip was filmed by RGKP Videoproduktion and was shot this past summer at Germany's Rock Harz festival.
The song comes off ARCH ENEMY's new album, "The Root Of All Evil", which will be released on October 6 in North America via Century Media Records (September 28 in Europe). This special collection features re-recorded versions of songs from the band's first three LPs — "Black Earth" (1996), "Stigmata" (1998) and "Burning Bridges" (1999). Acclaimed British producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, EXODUS) mixed and mastered the CD, which was recorded at a few different locations in Sweden and produced by ARCH ENEMY with Daniel Erlandsson and Rickard Bengtsson handling the engineering.
The Japanese edition of "The Root Of All Evil", which will be made available on September 30, will feature five bonus tracks, including cover versions of "Wings Of Tomorrow" (EUROPE) and "Walk In The Shadows" (QUEENSRŸCHE).
The details for the album's limited-edition CD were recently revealed: Apart from a very special "mediabook" packaging, it features three additional live bonus tracks, alternate artwork, an extended booklet and an exclusive patch as additional gimmick!
