Former ARCH ENEMY Guitarist Christopher Amott's ARMAGEDDON To Release Captivity & Devourment Album; Lyric Video For Title Track Streaming
May 29, 2014, 6 years ago
Armageddon, led by former Arch Enemy guitarist Christopher Amott, have released a lyric video for "Captivity & Devourment", the title track of their forthcoming new album, due this year.
Armageddon first came to life in Sweden in 1997 as a studio project, with cult album "Crossing the Rubicon", a sci-fi themed concept album. Two more albums followed, "Embrace the Mystery" in 2000 and "Three" in 2003, both featuring different line-ups and different musical directions, Christopher Amott being the sole original member.
Armageddon is now resurrected in its most powerful form. The band is based out of New York City, and has brought unto itself a crushing lineup of musicians. Together they have once again conjured up the force that is Armageddon.
The new album, Captivity & Devourment, consists of 10 awe-inspiring and ingeniously crafted songs, full of devastating riffs, soaring guitar leads and fist pumping choruses. Heavy, melodic, technical, and groovy: this is creative metal songwriting with one foot in deep in the classics and and one eye gazing towards the distant future.
