We're just one day away from the release of Arch Enemy's 10th studio album, Will to Power. It's the second with frontwoman Alissa White-Gluz and first with former Nevermore axeman Jeff Loomis as the band continues to evolve their hyper-melodic, anthemic sound. While fans anxiously await the full record, whet your appetite with the freshly released "First Day in Hell."

A clean-toned, doom-laden Middle-Eastern melody opens up the song, building tension with well-timed cymbal strikes before distorted guitar chugs alternate with melodic leads. "First Day in Hell" takes more of a rhythm-first approach over the verse, riding a fierce gallop that provides the foundation for White-Gluz's choppy death growls. With short bursts of more melody from Loomis and mainman Michael Amott, the track volleys between lunging riffs and Arch Enemy's prototypical sound with a winding arrangement.

"First Day in Hell" is the third song to be released off Will to Power. Arch Enemy had previously issued the self-empowering "The World Is Yours" and the mid-tempo fist-banger "The Eagle Flies Alone," so fans should be able to start piecing together a fair idea of what to expect from the new album.

Arch Enemy will return to North America in late October, embarking on a co-headlining tour with Trivium, who will be promoting their new album The Sin and the Sentence. Support will come from While She Sleeps and Fit for an Autopsy and a full list of dates can be seen at this location.
