Swedish/German extreme metallers Arch Enemy have set "Khaos Legions" as the title of their new album, due in May via Century Media Records. The CD is currently being recorded at Sweet Spot Studio in the south of Sweden with engineer Rickard Bengtsson (who produced 2005's "Doomsday Machine").
Commented Arch Enemy drummer Daniel Erlandsson: "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 brothers [Michael and Chris] 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-cker!"
