ARCH ENEMY Guitarist Comments On Upcoming DVD

Swedish/German extreme metallers ARCH ENEMY will release a new DVD+CD set, "Tyrants Of The Rising Sun: Live In Japan", in Europe on November 24 and in North America on November 25 via Century Media. The DVD contains a live show filmed in Tokyo earlier this year, an in-depth 40 minute road-movie feature, and all promotional videos that have been shot for the band's latest album, "Rise Of The Tyrant".

Commented ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott: "People are always asking us about Japan and the fans there… It is well known that ARCH ENEMY has been the most successful extreme metal band in the Japanese market for 10-plus years, so we thought it'd be cool to show the ARCH ENEMY fans worldwide what it's like when we tour there, this is your backstage pass to ARCH ENEMY, Nippon style! A lot of people felt that we raised the bar significantly with the quality of the 'Live Apocalypse' DVD — and I agree that was a great DVD, but I believe this monumental experience, [which] we are calling 'Tyrants Of The Rising Sun', filmed totally in High Definition, will leave you floored! With the metal world's #1 producer Andy Sneap mixing the audio and the brilliant Paul Smith editing and directing the visuals, the results are impressive! And Niklas Sundin of Cabin Fever Media bringing in some of the best artwork I've ever seen from him — we have a new DVD that we are very proud to present to our fans!"
