The official video for the song "You Will Know My Name" from Arch Enemy will make its online debut today (Tuesday, May 27). The clip was once again 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.
"You Will Know My Name" is taken from Arch Enemy's new album, "War Eternal," which will be released in North America on June 10 via Century Media Records.
In a recent interview with Turk Gitar, Arch Enemy guitarist Michael Amott stated about ex-singer Angela Gossow's exit: "It was a sudden change for the fans; we know that. But, of course, these kind of big steps in life don't come easily, and I believe this was a gradual thing that kept growing in Angela's mind for some time.
"We had decided to take 2013 off from the road and any sort of band activity. The only thing we were doing was writing music and also there always the plan to go into the studio and record at the end of 2013. As the scheduled recording time got closer, Angela informed us last year that she would definitely be stepping down from her position in the band.
"To be honest, it was not such a huge surprise to the rest of us, as there were a lot of conversations of that nature leading up to that point. I made the changes in the band that were necessary for Arch Enemy to continue and keep the music alive."
Regarding new singer Alissa White-Gluz's more versatile vocal approach compared to that of Gossow, Amott said: "Alissa has many different vocal styles that she can do very well ... She is much more versatile in that aspect than Angela. But for Arch Enemy, we are sticking with the aggressive vocal style that we are known for."
Speaking to Metal Underground, Alissa had the following to say about "War Eternal:" "The circumstances surrounding the creation of this album, writing the lyrics and recording it, I'm just happy to have it finally come out. I think people are going to like it. The production quality is amazing! I always wanted an album that would sound this full. I'm a really big fan of this album, myself. Even if I weren't in the band and Arch Enemy put out this album, I would pick it up and say it's great. I'm really excited."
