Swedish melodic death metallers Arch Enemy have just unleashed their first new single since 2017 album Will To Power.

The band's standalone new release, Deceiver, Deceiver, was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen, with an energetic accompanying video directed by Patric Ullaeus (watch it below).

Founder and chief songwriter Michael Amott says of Arch Enemy's return: "Wait… what? Has it really been four years since we last released new Arch Enemy music?
