Swedish/German extreme metallers ARCH ENEMY have
announced that original guitarist Christopher Amott is
rejoining the band with immediate effect. The group,
having finished an intense 18-month touring cycle all
over the world promoting the "Doomsday Machine" album
and "Live Apocalypse" DVD, is currently busy working
on songs for their new studio album.

Christopher surprised many by departing ARCH ENEMY at
the end of the "Doomsday Machine" recording sessions
in 2005, having been in the band for 10 years
(starting with ARCH ENEMY at age 18). Christopher
followed his urge to see the outside world and find
what else is out there apart from music. Having done

"This is very exciting for me, returning to ARCH ENEMY
as a full-time member! Right now we are working on our
forthcoming album and I'm very pleased about the way

the end of the songwriting process for the new album
and added some of his unique spice! I feel
Christopher' s playing has matured and is more precise
and even faster than before! Guitar fans are going to
freak on the stuff we are getting up to on the new

The last two years have been the busiest and most
successful touring campaign of ARCH ENEMY's entire
career, so the many fans both old and especially new
can now look forward to witnessing Christopher' s
return to the stages of the world.

In regards to Fredrik Åkesson, the Swedish
guitar-wizard who has been touring with ARCH ENEMY for
18 months and who can be seen on the band's latest
video clip for the song "My Apocalypse", Michael
states: "I want to add that we are eternally grateful
to Fredrik Åkesson, who did an outstanding job with
ARCH ENEMY over the past 18 months while we dragged
the 'Doomsday Machine' around the world a couple of

ARCH ENEMY has spent the last weeks locked in intense
rehearsals at its homebase in Halmstad, Sweden,
putting the final touches to the new material and
integrating Christopher on the new songs for the
forthcoming studio album. More news on this will
follow in the next few days.
