On September 28, Swedish Metal masters ARCH ENEMY will release their new studio album The Root Of All Evil in Europe. It contains a selection of completely re-recorded tracks from the band’s first three albums Black Earth (1996), Stigmata (1998) and Burning Bridges (1999) reenergized and upgraded by the band’s definitive line-up.
Originally recorded with ever changing band members (i.e. former vocalist Johan Liiva, drummer Peter Wildoer, bass player Martin Bengtsson), The Root Of All Evil presents classic ARCH ENEMY tracks with the insane vocals of Angela Gossow, several completely new bass lines by Sharlee D’Angelo, the ever-present guitar wizardry of the Amott brothers as well as Daniel Erlandsson’s merciless punch.
The entire project was approached with the idea of having the possibility to re-add these songs to the bands live set and follow up the release with some special touring activity. Now, a first track of this release has been launched at the band’s official MySpace page, check out “Beast Of Man” here.
The complete tracklisting for The Root Of All Evil is as follows:
1. The Root Of All Evil (Intro)
