The official video for the song "You Will Know My Name" from Arch Enemy can be seen below. The clip was 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. The cover artwork was created by Costin Chioreanu.

Speaking to Metal Underground, the band's new singer Alissa White-Gluz 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."

On the topic of the new album title, Alissa said: "This album ended up being a lot more personal than maybe some of my previous or Michael's previous lyrics. In the past, a topic like war or a political or global issue was what we normally wrote about. We were writing in two different bands, but we happen to have similar topics in our writing. Then when we were writing for this album, we had a collection of lyrics for this album, but we found that we were actually writing on similar things. Fighting the ongoing war in your day-to-day life, everybody has their battle going on that nobody else knows about. And then there are song titles like 'Never Forgive, Never Forget' and on and on, I think it ties in very nicely. It wasn't something we planned out, but that is the way it turned out, so it worked out really nicely. I think we really saw eye to eye and were experiencing similar things in our lives, so we ended up writing about the same topics even though we have different styles of writing lyrics."

    I liked the melodies quite a bit more than usual. Maybe its my bias towards melodies in the key of A. Haha
    Slightly different than older Arch Enemy stuff, but still true to the core. I really enjoy the take with the new singer.
