New Release: Arch Enemy - War Eternal (June 2014)

Swedish melodic death metallers Arch Enemy hit the headlines recently when front-woman Angela Gossow stepped down after 14 years at the helm and Alissa White-Gluz of The Agonist took over.

Much controversy followed with people up in arms that Angela might actually want to do something else ... which to be fair still means she has a great deal of involvement with the band, as their manager And many people feeling that Alissa wasn't up to the task, despite Angela being a driving force behind the decision for her to join.

On the 9th June the band release their ninth album - War Eternal and it's finally time for them to prove that Alissa was indeed a good choice to take over the front spot.

In March the band released the official video for the title track - War Eternal. Although I have to admit it does seem to lack that familiarity of Arch Enemy, it is a great track and a good indicator of what to expect from the new album.

War Eternal features 13 tracks:

Tempore Nihil Sanat (Prelude in F minor)
Never Forgive, Never Forget
War Eternal
As the Pages Burn
No More Regrets
You Will Know My Name
Graveyard of Dreams" (instrumental)
Stolen Life
Time Is Black
On and On
Down to Nothing
Not Long for This World (instrumental)

and is available in a multitude of formats:

You can preorder the album here and alternative sellers are indicated on the bands website.
