Behind-the-scenes footage from the making of ARCH ENEMY's official video for the song "The Eagle Flies Alone", taken from the band's latest album, "Will To Power", can be seen below.
Guitarist and band leader Michael Amott stated about the clip: "Strangely enough, this is a song I wrote in sunny Mexico [in 2016], but fear not — ARCH ENEMY hasn't gone mariachi on you! On the contrary, this song is steeped in classic metal and melancholic Scandinavian atmosphere. Lyrically, this is an anthemic warcry to all fellow individualists around the heavy metal world. We shot the video with our director Patric Ullaeus in Sweden on the coldest outdoor shoot I can recall ever doing! The end result was totally worth it; it turned out beautifully. I guess sometimes you really have to suffer for the art!"
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). The album's captivating cover artwork was designed by Alex Reisfar.
Released last September, "Will To Power" marks the second ARCH ENEMY album since the departure of longtime singer Angela Gossow and addition of Alissa White-Gluz. It will also be the first ARCH ENEMY disc to feature guitarist Jeff Loomis, who joined the band in late 2014.
ARCH ENEMY recently postponed its previously announced North American tour until 2019. The 22-city trek, which was slated to include support from GOATWHORE and UNCURED, was due to kick off on September 28 in Providence, Rhode Island and run through October 27 at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey.
