Revolution-Music.dk conducted an interview with bassist Sharlee D’Angelo of Swedish/German extreme metallers ARCH ENEMY when the band played at the Aalborg Metal Festival on November 5, 2011 at Studenterhuset in Aalborg, Denmark. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
ARCH ENEMY will embark on headlining tour of Japan in April 2012. The four-date trek will include a special performance of the band’s 2001 album, “Wages Of Sin”, in its entirety on April 14 at the Yokohama Blitz.
Commented ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott: “It’s not a very-well-guarded secret that Japan has been like a second home for ARCH ENEMY since we first started touring there in 1997. So it is with great joy and excitement that we are returning to celebrate the success of our ‘Khaos Legions’ album and play some great shows for our Japanese fans!
“All these four Japan shows will be special and unique, but none more so than the Yokohama Blitz show on April 14, where we’ll be performing our ‘Wages Of Sin’ (2001) album in its entirety.
“We haven’t done a full tour of Japan since 2008 (which we documented on the ‘Tyrants Of The Rising Sun’ DVD and double live album…). After our performance at Japan’s Loud Park 2011 event last month, we are more than eager to get back and have fun with some of the craziest metal fans on the planet!”
ARCH ENEMY‘s December 13 show in Cologne will be filmed for a future DVD release. ARCH ENEMY will be supported by Century Media labelmates WARBRINGER and Taiwan’s premiere metal act CHTHONIC.
ARCH ENEMY‘s ninth studio album, “Khaos Legions”, was released in Europe on May 30 and in the U.S. on June 7 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”).
