Swedish metal band Arch Enemy released their latest studio album “War Eternal” to the market in 2014. This album has won great acclaim around the world.
In the past days group vocalist Alissa White-Gluz told that they started working on the new album. It’s a big curiosity about what Jeff Loomis, the newly included guitarist on the team, will do on the album. The expectations are quite high.
In an interview with Metal Wani, Jeff Loomis tells his role and expectations on the next Arch Enemy album. He said:
“I’ll probably just be doing solos on this, because, I mean, if you look at it, Arch Enemy is Michael Amott – it’s his band, it’s his baby, and he is the main songwriter in the band. I did submit a few songs, and I don’t know if they’ll make it or not. But I definitely will be playing solos on it.
I love being in the band. I am fan of the band. I love the music, and I love playing in front of thousands of people with that band. But we’ll see what happens. It’s kind of the same thing if you can think the same way with Nevermore; me and Warrel [Dane, vocals] were the main writers in that band, and we had a revolving door of guitar players. But pretty much, it was me and Warrel that did a lot of it. Steve Smyth wrote a little bit, Tim Calvert wrote for ‘Dreaming Neon Black,’ but most of it, eighty percent, was me and Warrel. So each band has their own chemistry and their way of doing things.”
Arch Enemy’s new album is scheduled for sale in September 2017. Jeff Loomis also aims to released his own solo album in 2017.
