Arch Enemy: Daniel Erlandsson Issues First Studio Update!

Arch Enemy has entered the studio to begin recording a new album which has not been named, but will be self-produced by Arch Enemy and mixed/engineered by Rickard Bengtsson. The band will be recording at the Sweetspot Studio for the process. As an update Daniel Erlandsson just finished his parts and has to say the following:

“After an intense but inspiring stay in the studio, I’ve just completed recording the drum tracks for the upcoming Arch Enemy album!  We’re working once again with Rickard Bengtsson, who produced ‘Doomsday Machine’, and he quickly dialed in an absolutely pristine drumtone!  I’ve also had the expertise of local drum guru Beppe Wackelin at hand, helping out with tuning and kindly letting me use some of his vintage drums.  This time around I’ve used a Pearl Reference drum kit, while incorporating various snare drums on songs that demanded a slightly different feel.”

“We had a very inspiring and creative time writing this album, I think this is definitely evident when listening to the new songs.  There’s tons of variation in the material, ranging all the way from very melodic to extremely heavy.  As you can expect there’s no shortage of killer riffs and intricate guitar work, the Amott Bros have come up with some very cool yet demanding ideas!  This album has some of the fastest songs I’ve ever recorded, along with a bunch of heavy pounding mid tempo songs.  As always, it’s difficult to describe music in words – but rest assured – this album will be one heavy f##ker!”
