ARCH ENEMY: 'Khaos Legions' Artwork Unveiled

Swedish/German extreme metal metallers ARCH ENEMY have teamed up with industry leading audio technologies manufacturer Altec Lansing to unveil the cover art for the band's forthcoming full-length record, "Khaos Legions". The artwork, which comes courtesy of renowned artist Brent Elliott White (MEGADETH, DEATH ANGEL), can be viewed below.

"Khaos Legions", ARCH ENEMY's ninth studio album, will hit stores in late spring/early summer on Century Media Records. The record will mark a return to new, original material, after releasing the "Tyrants Of The Rising Sun - Live In Japan" live DVD/CD (2008) and the re-recordings album, "The Root Of All Evil" (2009).

Behind-the-scenes footage from the recording sessions for "Khaos Legions" can be viewed below. The CD was tracked at Sweet Spot Studio in the south of Sweden with engineer Rickard Bengtsson (who produced 2005's "Doomsday Machine") and is scheduled for a May release via Century Media Records.

ARCH ENEMY drummer Daniel Erlandsson previously stated about the new CD, "We had a very inspiring and creative time writing this album. I think this is definitely evident when listening to the new songs. There's tons of variation in the material, ranging all the way from very melodic to extremely heavy.

"As you can expect there's no shortage of killer riffs and intricate guitar work; the Amott brothers [Michael and Chris] have come up with some very cool yet demanding ideas!

"This album has some of the fastest songs I've ever recorded, along with a bunch of heavy pounding mid-tempo songs.

"As always, it's difficult to describe music in words, but rest assured — this album will be one heavy fucker!"
