ARCH ENEMY: European Festival Appearances Canceled Due To ‘Private Family Matters’

Swedish/German extreme metallers ARCH ENEMY have released the following statement:

“It is with great disappointment that we have to cancel our shows at European festivals this summer. The reason for this being private family matters that demand our full attention, making it difficult to fulfill our commitments in that time frame. We are currently looking into the possibility of rescheduling these festival slots for next year.

“We would like to thank the festival promoters, and, of course, the fans for their understanding and continued support. We will use this downtime to finish up the work on our upcoming DVD/Blu-ray and continue with the songwriting process of the next ARCH ENEMY album. We look forward to seeing you all in 2014! Metal on!”

ARCH ENEMY‘s upcoming DVD and Blu-ray will include footage that was shot on the band’s recent tour of South America and Mexico. German production company Filmefahrer Pictures, known for its work on “2012 – The Movie” and THE VERY END‘s music video for “A Hole In The Sun”, filmed the shows, conducted interviews with the bandmember and shot backstage footage, fans and other incidentals during the tour.

ARCH ENEMY‘s ninth album, “Khaos Legions”, sold around 6,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 78.

The band last year year amicably parted ways with guitarist Christopher Amott and replaced him with American musician Nick Cordle (ARSIS).

Damn Canada what is in the water up there?   Seems like a lot of Thrash/NWOBHM bands are coming out from under the Maple Leaf flag here of late…and good ones at that.  Mortillery is no doubt one of the front runners as being one the best I’ve had the pleasure of hearing, along with Skullfist.

Make no mistake “Origin of Extinction” is a classic Thrash Metal album that any fan of the genre should at least appreciate if not become an instant fan of the band.  You have the riffs, the raw aggression and the classic crunch sound of the music.  Continue reading Music Review: Mortillery CD: Origin of Extinction
