Commented ARCH ENEMY singer Angela Gossow: "2011 is my 10-year anniversary with ARCH ENEMY. I want to celebrate this with a very special event we will film my hometown show in Cologne, Essigfabrik, Germany 13 December 2011 for our upcoming 'World Khaos Tour' DVD release! We aim to capture the live insanity of my fellow German metalheads as intensely as possible with cameras in the middle of the moshpit, in the front row, over, under, left, right and center. We want your blood, your sweat, your passion and get every last drop of it on celluloid! The awesome Filmefahrer Pictures team will make this an unforgettable shooting so be there and become immortalized!!!"
"Khaos Legions", the ninth studio album from ARCH ENEMY, sold around 6,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 78.
ARCH ENEMY's previous full-length studio CD of new material, "Rise Of The Tyrant", debuted at position No. 84 in October 2007 with first-week U.S. sales of around 8,900 approximately 25 percent less than the opening number (12,000) of its predecessor, 2005's "Doomsday Machine" (which landed at No. 87).
"Khaos Legions" was released in Europe on May 30 and in the U.S. on June 7 via Century Media Records. The CD marks the band's return to new, original material, after the release of the "Tyrants Of The Rising Sun - Live In Japan" live DVD/CD (2008) and the re-recordings album, "The Root Of All Evil" (2009). The effort was tracked at Sweet Spot Studio in the south of Sweden with engineer Rickard Bengtsson (who produced 2005's "Doomsday Machine").
