An ARCH ENEMY live video for the song "Dark Insanity" (originally featured on the "Tyrants Of The Rising Sun - Live In Japan" DVD), can be viewed below. The track is one of a number of cuts that were re-recorded for the band's "The Root Of All Evil" album, which has registered the following first-week chart positions:
Japan: #7 (international artist chart)
Japan: #21 (combined chart)
"The Root Of All Evil" sold around 1,500 copies in the United Staes in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It 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 was made available on September 30, features five bonus tracks, including cover versions of "Wings Of Tomorrow" (EUROPE) and "Walk In The Shadows" (QUEENSRŸCHE).
ARCH ENEMY will embark on a European headlining run in December with support from DESTRUCTION, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS and TRIOSPHERE.
