Swedish extreme metallers ARCH ENEMY are currently filming a video for the song “Under Black Flags We March” in Gothenburg, Sweden. The clip is being directed by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company, who has previously worked with DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, SONIC SYNDICATE and KAMELOT, among others.
A couple of photos from the video shoot can be seen below.
“Under Black Flags We March” comes off ARCH ENEMY‘s ninth album, “Khaos Legions”, which 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, 2011 and in the U.S. on June 7, 2011 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”).

ARCH ENEMY recently amicably parted ways with guitarist Christopher Amott and replaced him with 26-year-old American musician Nick Cordle (ARSIS).
