Arch Enemy have released the first music video from their new album "The Root of All Evil". The brand new video for the track, "Beast of Man", can be viewed online. The video for "Beast of Man" was filmed by RGKP Videoproduktion, and was shot this past summer at Germany's Rock Harz Festival.
"Beast of Man" was also the first song to be revealed from the "The Root of All Evil", which releases in the US next week, on October 6th, through Century Media Records. "Beast of Man" as well as another track from "The Root of All Evil", "Bury Me An Angel", can be heard on the official Arch Enemy MySpace page. Arch Enemy has also teamed up with GuitarWorld.com to offer free download of the track "Pilgrim", here.
"The Root of All Evil" is a collection of rerecorded Arch Enemy classics, taken from the band's first three studio albums, re-energized by the current Arch Enemy line up. "Beast of Man" was originally recorded for the 1998 release "Stigmata". An official album trailer for "The Root of All Evil" can be viewed at this location.
A live clip of the song "Dark Insanity" (originally featured on the "Tyrants Of The Rising Sun - Live In Japan" DVD), which is one of the many reworked tracks on the "The Root of All Evil" album, has now been launched online.
The video sounds pretty cool. I've listened to this album and apart form the initial strangeness when you hear songs that used to be sang differently and the sometimes annoying double layers of growls, it all fits perfectly fine. Can't wait to catch some of those classics on tour in December.
Damn this video is actually really good, better than I expected. We needed to hear something good from Arch Enemy after the disappointment of their last album. Looking forward to another US tour, can't wait to see them once again!
