‘Khaos Legions’ due out May 2011


SWEDEN – Swedish melodic death metal titan, Arch Enemy, has posted a second studio update from Sweet Spot Studios in Sweden, as they continue to record the forthcoming full-length, Khaos Legions, with engineer, Rickard Bengtsson.  Part two of the studio report shows bassist, Sharlee D’Angelo, scarifying his bleeding fingers for the sake of KHAOS.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the low end is firmly in place!  After a long day of plowing through an absolutely massive array of bass guitars, different amps and cabs, and various other electronic gadgets, the choice finally fell on my white custom shop Ibanez Iceman run through an MXR Bass D.I.+ and an Aguilar Tonehammer into an Aguilar DB751 head and a DB810 cab, complimented by a Marshall VBC 412 cab, hidden behind a veritable forest of expensive microphones on serious looking mic stands.  And the result?  F**king awesome, people!  Our engineer Rickard Bengtsson is an audio nerd with a rock’n’roll backbone who does not give up until he finds what he’s looking for – and thank f**k for that.  Cause the songs on this album really need to be presented in the best way possible.  Having laid down all the bass tracks now I just can’t wait for everybody to hear the album, and to play all these songs live for you all!  But we’re not quite there yet, next up are blistering leads from the depths of hell…”
