Arch Enemy release new video single, “Handshake With Hell”

Swedish melodic death metallers Arch Enemy have unleashed their new video single titled “Handshake With Hell,” which you can check out below. The fresh tune appears on the band’s recently announced new album dubbed ‘Deceivers’ (out July 29th via Century Media Records, pre-order).

Guitarist Michael Amott comments, “Our new single/video ‘Handshake with Hell’ started off with some riffs and melodies that I thought might be suitable for each other, and when I showed the parts I had to Daniel (Erlandsson, drums), he also felt it had potential. We worked on a demo of it, developing it much further together, and once we had reached a point where we felt it was ready, we sent the instrumental version to Alissa over in Canada. She came back with this really cool approach to the vocals and lyrics that elevated the song even further. To me, it’s a stand-out track on the new ‘Deceivers’ album, really showcasing what we are capable of as songwriters and performers in 2022 – it’s definitely one of the new songs I’m dying to play live on tour!

Vocalist Alissa White-Gluz adds, “When Michael and Daniel showed me the instrumental they had cooked up, I got a ton of vocal ideas to complete the song. ‘Handshake with Hell’ has a classic heavy metal feel, and it felt like the right time to unleash some classic heavy metal vocals to match. I think the result is really interesting and catchy!
