Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM

A blistering salvo from their forthcoming ‘Deceivers’ album, ‘Handshake With Hell’ delivers all you could ask for and more from the Swedish melodic death metal crew.

Opening with relentless riffing from Michael Amott and Jeff Loomis, the unholy growls of Alissa White-Gluz come screaming in like a banshee on fire as the drums and bass smash all before them to dust.

Even when the vocals turn to the sweet clarity that they’re capable of, all is lost as it feels like you’re strapped to the booster rockets of an Apollo spacecraft, your skin peeling from your face with the mixture of roaring heat and speed.

Arch Enemy seem to be able to mix this brutality and beauty with a lyrical deftness, an almost classical feel to the grand solos.

With its sublime mix of pleasure and pain, this new track is one of the most incredibly powerful things the band has done. Light the blue touch paper and stand back at a safe distance, this one is going to go off big time.
