It only feels like last month Arch Enemy burst back into our lives with ‘Decieiver Deceiver‘ and now they’re here to deliver their next action-packed jam for fans!
From the moment frontwoman Alissa White-Gluz opens her mouth, you’llrealm be snapped up in awe of the monsterous vocal porformance she delivers throughout this song with mesmerising cleans, bellowing gutturals and demonic growls, it’s pure Arch Enemy goodness all rolled into one package – and I haven’t even mentioned the shred-tastic guitar riffage throughout – which takes the song from your death metal realm into power metal with screams territory.
On the new track guitarist Michael Amott comments:
“Musically, this is an idea that has been bouncing around in my head for a while, and finally it got finished. It all started with the guitar motif that kicks off the track, which naturally leads to the galloping 80’s-metal feel of the verses. As is always the case with us, we had quite a few different arrangements and demos of this song until it was, dare I say, fckn perfect!”
Alissa White-Gluz adds:
“‘House of Mirrors’ is a song that twists its way into the human psyche. I wrote the lyrics during a dark time of strict, dystopian lockdown, and I think people will be able to relate to that feeling of being totally alone – but never truly alone – when you are surrounded only by past and future versions of yourself as company.”
I’ve personally wanted to see this band go next level and with this new song, I reckon they’re well on their way!
