“Khaos Legions”, the ninth studio album from ARCH ENEMY, will be released on May 30 in Europe and June 7 in the U.S. via Century Media Records. The CD will mark 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”).
