Guitarist Michael Ammot of Arch Enemy has issued the following update about streaming the re-recorded song "Beast of Man" from their upcoming album "The Root of All Evil" on their MySpace page:

"So the time has arrived for a first taste of ‘The Root Of All Evil’! The song ‘Beast Of Man’ was originally written as a last minute addition to the ‘Stigmata’ album back in 1998. Daniel (Erlandsson) had just returned to the ARCH ENEMY drum throne and I wrote this one and another song called ‘Diva Satanica’ in a day or two. Christopher (Amott) had the cool harmonized mid section part and that was that, we went into the studio and rehearsed, recorded and mixed them in a marathon 24 hour session. It was OK at the time, but I always thought the songs deserved a little more love and attention.

"The 2009 version of this song is really heads and shoulders above the original in my opinion. The song was always cool, but the production on the original was quite poor, more like a demo really. I am very pleased that we did this ‘Root Of All Evil’ project and that we can give these songs a 'new life'… Enjoy the ‘Beast Of Man’!”

"The Root Of All Evil" will be released on September 28th and contains re-recorded tracks from the bands first three albums “Black Earth," “Stigmata,"and “Burning Bridges."

I think it is all remakes of pre-Angela material. So far I am liking it though.

I prefer the original but this one is good too. I've always wanted to hear Angela do some of the older stuff. Her voice makes my p***s tingle.
