New Album "Captivity & Devourment" Announced By Armageddon, Title Track Streaming

Sweden's Armageddon, featuring ex-Arch Enemy guitarist Chris Amott has announced that the band has returned with the new album "Captivity & Devourment." The album is expected out this year and is described as "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 first came to life in Sweden in 1997 as a studio project, with cult album "Crossing the Rubicon," a sci-fi themed concept album. Two more albums followed, "Embrace the Mystery" in 2000 and "Three" in 2003, both featuring different line-ups and different musical directions, with Amott as the solo original member.

The band is now based out of New York City with a new line-up of musicians:

Matt Hallquist (Under A Serpent Sun) - Lead vocals
Christopher Amott (ex-Arch Enemy) - Guitars and clean vocals
Joey Concepcion (ex-Oath of Insanity) - Guitars
Sara Claudius - Bass
Márton Veress (Pokolgép) - Drums

More information on the new album is expected soon. The band has released the title track for streaming, which can be heard here:
