Arch Enemy, ‘As the Pages Burn’ – Exclusive Lyric Video Premiere
There’s a lot of anticipation surrounding Arch Enemy at the moment as the group makes the transition from Angela Gossow to Alissa White-Gluz as their new vocalist, but judging by the band’s new song ‘As the Pages Burn,’ fans have little to worry about. The group is exclusively debuting the lyric video for the track right here at Loudwire (seen above).
White-Gluz ably keeps up with the band’s brutality and handles the melodic parts with aplomb, as well. “Sweet amnesia / Here to free you / As the pages burn / All your trials / Solved by fire / As the pages burn” serves as the chorus of the song, with the vocalist unleashing every ounce of passion into the vocals. And for old-school fans of Arch Enemy, the track is as heavy as ever, with some hard-hitting drum work, slick riffing and some standout work on the guitar scales.
White-Gluz tells Loudwire,”‘As The Pages Burn’ is one of the first songs I wrote for ‘War Eternal.’ It’s a really fast, fun song, and I think it contrasts nicely to the first single we released, ‘War Eternal.’ It’s a taste of more of what’s to come on the album! Enjoy!”
‘As the Pages Burn’ is featured on Arch Enemy’s ‘War Eternal’ album, due in stores June 10 via Century Media. Pre-orders for the disc are available at Amazon (MP3 Album). The new song follows the release of the disc’s title track. Click below to watch the ‘War Eternal’ video:
