Hot on the heels of their latest single, and first new music in four years, Deceiver, Deceiver, Swedish death metallers Arch Enemy have issued a new track, House of Mirrors.

Doubling down on the momentum of Deceiver, Deceiver, the new track commences with a series of enveloping harmonized leads from electric guitar duo Michael Amott and Jeff Loomis, before bassist Sharlee D'Angelo, drummer Daniel Erlandsson and vocalist Alissa White-Gluz enter the fray with '80s-inspired, galloping double-kick-driven rhythms and powerful guttural screams.
