Chris Amott’s ARMAGEDDON Reveals Artwork For “Captivity And Devourment” AlbumWednesday, 25th June 2014
ARMAGEDDON, the band led by former ARCH ENEMY lead guitarist Chris Amott, have posted the cover art for their forthcoming Captivity and Devourment album.
Says the band: “He took his own inspiration and painted a scene of total destruction as described across the album. We thoroughly enjoyed our collaboration with him. We strictly did not want the uninspired digital photoshop album art that is so prevalent these days. This is hand painted visions of a man inspired by music.”
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.
Due later in the year, 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.
