Speaking in an interview by Guitar World, Arch Enemy mastermind Michael Amott explained his thoughts about their legendary guitarist Jeff Loomis. He said:
“I always tell Jeff he’s overqualified for the gig. [Laughs] But having a high-profile guitar player join was really great for us. He plays amazing stuff almost without effort, and I’m still sitting here struggling to figure out how to hold a guitar pick.
I feel lucky just to have Jeff playing solos on the record. I know he is such a high-profile guitar player and his role in Arch Enemy is not what people might expect.
I’ve always written most of the music in this band and that’s what I do. Right now, he is more about playing guitar solos and he seems to really get that.”
