The Swedish metallers Arch Enemy presented a music video for the track "The Race" from the latest album "Will To Power", released on September 8 via Century Media. The video was directed by Patrick Ullaeus, who has worked with Dimmu Borgir, In Flames, Evergrey and other artists.
The guitarist Michael Amott comments:
"This was actually the last song written for the 'Will To Power' album. "Listening through all the material we had up to that point, we agreed that the album needed one more song that would be a relentless and fast-paced counterpoint to some of the more epic compositions we already had. We sent Alissa [White-Gluz] the music and she came up with a thought-provoking set of lyrics with an intense vocal arrangement that complemented the music perfectly. "We've been having a blast playing this song on the current tour and we had our video director Patric Ullaeus come out to capture the mayhem at our recent show in Helsinki, Finland... Enjoy 'The Race'!"
"Will To Power" marks the second Arch Enemy’s album since the departure of longtime singer Angela Gossow and addition of White-Gluz. It will also be the first Arch Enemy’s disc to feature former Nevermore’s guitarist Jeff Loomis, who joined the band in late 2014.
The album was co-produced by guitarist Michael Amott and drummer Daniel Erlandsson, the disc was mixed and mastered by longtime collaborator and friend Jens Bogren (Opeth, At The Gates, Dimmu Borgir). The album's cover artwork was designed by Alex Reisfar.
