Directed by Grupa13, check out the video for “Sunset Over The Empire” at: https://youtu.be/E3mOvCMG24I or below:



ARCH ENEMY‘s founder and chief songwriter Michael Amott comments: “Behold the ‘Sunset Over The Empire‘, the 4th single from our upcoming ‘Deceivers‘ album! This is a faster song with some manic riffs and a relentless beat that I can envision becoming a ‘hit in the pit’! Lyrically, it’s sadly one of those that seems to ring more true with each and every passing day nowadays…’Words turned to war, brother fighting brother, another false truce, as the people die…’. The accompanying video was shot in Poland with the Grupa13 team and doesn’t follow the lyrics slavishly but has a great message and vibe in its own right. Oh, and I’m stoked that we’re releasing ‘Sunset Over The Empire‘ as a limited edition physical single on 7″ vinyl!

A collection of 11 tracks that are ruthlessly catchy and mercilessly violent, ‘Deceivers‘ stands toe- to-toe with the highlights of the band’s storied catalogue. Roaring to life with “Handshake With Hell“, ARCH ENEMY make it clear they are out for blood, and every track is a hit, from the moody “Poisoned Arrow” to the titanically anthemic “One Last Time“. Sounding more energized than ever, the quintet is operating at the highest level, delivering a maelstrom of diamond-hard riffing wrapped around cinematic melodies, thunderous drumming and towering vocals. ARCH ENEMY has proved, yet again, that they are unstoppable.
