ARCH ENEMY have released the new song, “House Of Mirrors” which can be heard below.
Mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen, an accompanying music video for the track — directed by Grupa13 — will premiere at 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. (noon) ET today.
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 ’80s-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, fuckin’ perfect!”
Frontwoman 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.”
“House Of Mirrors” marks the second new ARCH ENEMY track to be made available in four years, following the October 21 arrival of “Deceiver, Deceiver”.
