A collection of 11 tracks that are ruthlessly catchy and mercilessly violent, Deceivers stands toe-to-toe with the highlights of the band’s storied catalogue. Roaring to life with “Handshake With Hell”, ARCH ENEMY make it clear they are out for blood, and every track is a hit, from the moody “Poisoned Arrow” to the titanically anthemic “One Last Time”. Sounding more energized than ever, the quintet is operating at the highest level, delivering a maelstrom of diamond-hard riffing wrapped around cinematic melodies, thunderous drumming and towering vocals. ARCH ENEMY has proved, yet again, that they are unstoppable.

“ARCH ENEMY have always been reliable, every few years dropping a solid collection of catchy, chunky melodic death with at least a handful of real bangers to chew on. With ‘Deceivers’, they have surprisingly managed to up their game, delivering an album that slays from start to finish and is essential listening for metalheads yearning for a soundtrack to wreck their necks to.” – Kerrang!

“…the band’s strongest work since 2001’s ‘Wages of Sin’.” – Decibel Magazine

“With all the turmoil in the world, we can be happy that Swedish legends ARCH ENEMY are back with their long-awaited 11th album ‘Deceivers’ which once again raises the bar for anyone in the melodic death metal genre.” – The Hard Times

“ARCH ENEMY are not just another metal band. They are the metal band, and if you disagree, give this record a spin.” – The Aquarian

“This is great, fucking great, fucking heavy! Get it in ya earholes!” – Heavy Magazine

“(…) when listening to it twice, you begin to understand what monster of an album you are dealing with here.” – Metal Hammer (GER)

“First of all, ‘Deceivers’ is a record where many bands can only dream of.” – Aardshok (NL)

“Not only ‘Deceivers’ earn its place in one of the most reliable discographies in modern metal, it does so by being amongst the bravest and most entertaining to date.” – Metal Hammer (UK)

“’Deceivers’ brilliantly plays the card of diversity. Stunning production, powerful choruses; ARCH ENEMY know how to convince and climbs a step higher.” – Rock Hard (FR)

“Once again they have turned melodic death metal upside down, proving that they are onf the greats of the genre.” – La Heavy (ES)
