Arch Enemy is now streaming their second new single of 2021 in the form of the driving, twisting-and-turning "House Of Mirrors." Guitarist Michael Amott said "House Of Mirrors" has been kicking around in the Arch Enemy camp for a while now, and of course he's pretty glad that it's finally done and out in the world.
"Musically, this is an idea that has been bouncing around in my head for a while, and finally it got finished," said guitarist Michael Amott. "It all started with the guitar motif that kicks off the track, which naturally leads to the galloping '80s-metal feel of the verses. As is always the case with us, we had quite a few different arrangements and demos of this song until it was, dare I say, fuckin' perfect!"
"'House Of Mirrors' is a song that twists its way into the human psyche," added vocalist Alissa White-Gluz. "I wrote the lyrics during a dark time of strict, dystopian lockdown, and I think people will be able to relate to that feeling of being totally alone — but never truly alone — when you are surrounded only by past and future versions of yourself as company."
