ARCH ENEMY – Rehearsal Footage With New Guitarist!

April 9th, 2012

Arch Enemy recently parted ways with guitarist Christopher Amott in an amicable split. Christopher Amott was a member of the band between 1996 – 2005, and again between 2007 – 2011. The band welcomed 26 year old American guitarist Nick Cordle on board as Amott’s replacement, and they continue their touring activity following the release of their recent Khaos Legions (2011) album.

Footage from Arch Enemy’s April 8th rehearsal with Cordle, performing ‘The First Deadly Sin’, is available below:

Nick Cordle was raised in a musical family in Virginia by parents who teach classical piano and was immersed in 19th century piano music as a child. Rachmaninoff, Brahms, and Liszt are his early memories. There were piano and violin lessons from a very early age but a rebellious streak led to the guitar at the age of 10, and within a few years he discovered the classic thrash metal albums by MEGADETH, METALLICA, and SLAYER. This was his first real musical passion and gateway into extreme music.

Nick studied jazz and music theory at the University of Virginia from 2003 to 2007 but remains self taught in the ways of ”shred” and metal. Shortly thereafter, he joined American death metal band ARSIS playing bass and guitar over a three year period performing with them on various European tours and countless gigs across the US, Canada, and Mexico as well as performing and writing on their most recent album Starve For The Devil (2010).

Arch Enemy have been confirmed to headline the Ax-Mayhem Festival in Seoul, Korea on April 21st. Tickets are available here.

ARCH ENEMY and Christopher Amott Part Ways, Recruit Replacement

March 5th, 2012

ARCH ENEMY have parted ways with guitarist Christopher Amott in an amicable split. Christopher Amott was a member of ARCH ENEMY between 1996-2005 and again between 2007-2011.  The following is a joint statement from ARCH ENEMY:

“We thank Christopher for the time he’s worked with the band and of course wish him the very best in his future endeavors.

Thankfully, there is no drama behind the scenes here. This is the best way forward for all involved. Christopher simply does not feel at home with playing extreme metal anymore.

We have already chosen and rehearsed with a new guitar player and we will complete the ‘Khaos Legions’ 2012 touring cycle as planned. We are highly motivated and look forward to continue spreading our music around the world!

Finally, our deepest thanks go to the ARCH ENEMY fans, whose amazing support and belief inspires us ever onward.”

ARCH ENEMY are pleased to welcome 26-year-old American guitarist Nick Cordle on board as they continue their touring activity following the release of their recent album, Khaos Legions (2011).

Founding guitarist Michael Amott comments:

“Nick was my first choice as he ticks all the right boxes for Arch Enemy with his musicality and technicality as well as his personality and dedication. Looking forward to having him join us stage, the rehearsals have shown we have a devastating twin axe attack going on!”

Nick Cordle was raised in a musical family in Virginia by parents who teach classical piano and was immersed in 19th century piano music as a child.  Rachmaninoff, Brahms, and Liszt are his early memories.  There were piano and violin lessons from a very early age but a rebellious streak led to the guitar at the age of 10, and within a few years he discovered the classic thrash metal albums by Megadeth, Metallica, and Slayer. This was his first real musical passion and gateway into extreme music.

The Night Flight Orchestra: a classic rock project for Soilwork and Arch Enemy members

February 6th, 2012

The Night Flight Orchestra

The Night Flight Orchestra, the new “Classic Rock” project with Björn “Speed” Strid from Soilwork and Sharlee D’Angelo from Arch Enemy, signs with Coroner Records for the worldwide release of its debut album.

The band is currently recording the album which will be released in June 2012.

“The Night Flight Orchestra” started like so many others as an innocent yet serious drunken idea when Björn Strid (Soilwork) and David Andersson (Mean Streak, Soilwork session player) were on the road together somewhere in North America in 2007.

Björn and David were bonding over what they considered “classic” or not, from rock’n’roll conspiracies to being arrested in a lobby with nothing but leather pants on.

All those scenarios, fictional or real, needed a soundtrack. They also came to think that whether you’re on a metal tour or not, a lot of classic rock songs say it all and can really lend you a helping hand and make you forget about everything, especially when in motion or travelling. The classic escape. The never-ending road trip. The transatlantic night flight. It may sound simple and naive but what it all comes down to is that we all need that soundtrack to feel extra special, whether you have been arrested in a lobby or not.

It didn’t take long before bass player Sharlee D’Angelo (Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars) joined forces as well as keyboard player Richard Larsson (Von Benzo) and drummer Jonas Källsbäck (Mean Streak).

The goal was to reclaim the 70’s/early 80’s sense for classic melody, the forgotten recipe to a timeless song, preferably a song mentioning a city, street name or an exhilarating alcoholic beverage. Anything that will have you spitting out the word “classic”.

Further details about official release date, tracklist, artwork, etc… will be revealed soon.

You can listen to some pre-production songs on:

ARCH ENEMY @ Shepherd’s Bush Empire

Arch Enemy @ Shepherd’s Bush Empire with Chthonic and Warbringer

6th  December 2011

Review by James Griffiths

Photography by Graham Hilling

It’s a very cold Tuesday night in Sheppard’s Bush but that hasn’t deterred the army of metallers queuing up outside of the Sheppard’s Bush Empire well over an hour before the doors open. Personally, I found it much easier to plant myself in the pub next door where its warm and cosy and can drink a few beers before the bands start!

7:30pm and the doors have opened and the queue diminishes very fast and the venue soon begins to fill out just in time for tonight’s first band.

Tuska Open Air 2011 – Suvilahti Helsinki Finland

August 27th, 2011

Tuska11_665x200.jpg

Tuska Open Air 2011

Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland

July 22-24, 2011



Review by Arto Lehtinen, Petri Seppänen Da Costa

Pics by Arto Lehtinen, Sini Huotari

The Tuska Open Air Festival has become one kind of institution amongst all metal festivals in Europe. Tuska was previously arranged in the heart of Helsinki in the central park Kaisaniemi during the past 10 years. The park underwent construction to have a better environment and other mandatory improvements. The organization of Tuska didn’t have a choice but to find and switch the whole festival to a new area. This new area is still located in Helsinki, but only a few kilometers away, to a place called Suvilahti. Having this area was definitely a big part of the whole idea and concept of Tuska. The Kaisaniemi park brought an intimate picnic and park feeling with the grass and trees. Whereas Suvilahti was more like an industrial environment with the burning and redhot asphalt under the feet.

Another thing forcing Tuska to make a change was the date. Originally the festival was supposed to be in the beginning of July, but another big more international based festival took over the date and Tuska was postponed until three weeks later. Well at least some people got pissed off at the changed date. Obviously a few band negotiations needed to start all over. Hopefully Tuska will return back to the original date. However, the line-up looked amazing after all. Morbid Angel and Amon Amarth were headliners, so was Devin Townsend once again. Cult metal bands like Hell, Bulldozer and then something type of stuff such as Jex Thoth, Church Of Misery. The festival was an utter success although the event wasn’t sold out. All in all 28000 people visited Tuska during three days.

Metal-Rules.com was present to check out a lot of bands and check out the new Tuska area.

SOILWORK Singer and ARCH ENEMY Bass Player Launch Classic Rock Band

The goal was to reclaim the 70’s/early 80’s sense for classic melody, the forgotten recipe to a timeless song, preferably a song mentioning a city, street name or an exhilarating alcoholic beverage. Anything that will have you spitting out the word ‘classic’. From “Tarot Woman” to “Badlands”, from “Rhiannon” to “Running on Empty”, from “Blind Man” to “Night Moves”, from “Deuce” to “Separate Ways”, from “Elected” to “Set me Free”. The list goes on. It’s all about reclaiming the “classic”. The band is currently unsigned but are looking into recording their debut album this summer.
