ARCH ENEMY's cover of the song "The Leader (Of The Fuckin' Assholes)" from the '80s Swedish hardcore punk band SKITSLICKERS can be streamed below.
ARCH ENEMY's version of the track will appear on the "Råpunk" EP, to be included in the limited-edition deluxe box set of the band's new album, "Will To Power", due on September 8 via Century Media. The disc's captivating cover artwork, which can be seen below, was designed by Alex Reisfar.
Co-produced by Amott and drummer Daniel Erlandsson, "Will To Power" was mixed and mastered by longtime collaborator and friend Jens Bogren (OPETH, AT THE GATES, DIMMU BORGIR).
"Will To Power" will mark the second ARCH ENEMY album since the departure of longtime singer Angela Gossow and addition of her replacement, former THE AGONIST frontwoman Alissa White-Gluz. It will also be the first ARCH ENEMY disc to feature guitarist Jeff Loomis (ex-NEVERMORE), who joined the band in late 2014.
Amott told Rock Hard magazine in January that Loomis — who was the main songwriter in his former band NEVERMORE — has not contributed to the songwriting on the group's new disc.
