ARMAGEDDON Ink Deal With Listenable RecordsMonday, 6th October 2014
ARMAGEDDON, the band led by former ARCH ENEMY lead guitarist Chris Amott has signed with France’s Listenable Records.
Amott states: “Armageddon are happy to announce that we’ve signed a deal with Listenable Records. Our new album, Captivity & Devourment, is set for a worldwide release on January 26th, 2015. Me and head of label Laurent Merle go way back and I’m looking forward to working alongside him and his staff to make Armageddon the absolute best it can be. Thank you all! See you on the road in 2015.”
ARMAGEDDON first came to life in Sweden in 1997 as a studio project, with the release of Crossing The Rubicon, a sci-fi themed concept album. Two more full-length efforts followed, Embrace The Mystery in 2000 and Three in 2003, both featuring different lineups and different musical directions, with Amott as the sole remaining original member.
ARMAGEDDON is now resurrected in its most powerful form. The band is based out of New York City, and has brought unto itself a crushing lineup of musicians. Together they have once again conjured up the force that is ARMAGEDDON.
Captivity & Devourment consists of 10 awe-inspiring and ingeniously crafted songs, full of devastating riffs, soaring guitar leads and fist-pumping choruses. Heavy, melodic, technical, and groovy, this is creative metal songwriting with one foot in deep in the classics and and one eye gazing towards the distant future.
ARMAGEDDON 2014 is:
Matt Hallquist – Lead Vocals
Christopher Amott – Guitar, Clean Vocals
Joey Concepcion – Guitar
Sara Claudius – Bass
Márton Veress – Drums
