Former ARCH ENEMY Guitarist CHRISTOPHER AMOTT's ARMAGEDDON: 'Fugitive Dust' Video Premiere

"Fugitive Dust", the new video from ARMAGEDDON, the band led by former ARCH ENEMY guitarist Christopher Amott, can be seen below. The song is taken from ARMAGEDDON's new album, "Captivity & Devourment", which will be released on January 26 via Listenable Records. The CD was mixed by Fredrik Larnemo at Studio Recordia and mastered at Stockholm Mastering.

Vocalist Antony Hämäläinen (NIGHTRAGE, NERVOSIA, MERIDIAN DAWN) will front ARMAGEDDON on their upcoming U.S. tour, which is scheduled to kick off in early February.

Singer Matt Hallquist left ARMAGEDDON last month due to "personal reasons."

ARMAGEDDON first came to life in Sweden in 1997 as a studio project, with the release of "Crossing The Rubicon", a sci-fi themed concept album. Two more full-length efforts followed, "Embrace The Mystery" in 2000 and "Three" in 2003, both featuring different lineups and different musical directions, with Amott as the sole remaining original member.

ARMAGEDDON is now resurrected in its most powerful form. The band is based out of New York City, and has brought unto itself a crushing lineup of musicians. Together they have once again conjured up the force that is ARMAGEDDON.

"Captivity & Devourment" consists of 10 awe-inspiring and ingeniously crafted songs, full of devastating riffs, soaring guitar leads and fist-pumping choruses. Heavy, melodic, technical, and groovy, this is creative metal songwriting with one foot in deep in the classics and and one eye gazing towards the distant future.

Amott in March 2012 issued a statement explaining that he left ARCH ENEMY to pursue his solo career. He said, "I'm gonna continue to be very active in music, working with all kinds of styles — this does not rule out metal."
