Melodic death metal masters Arch Enemy have returned with "Deceiver, Deceiver," their first original new song since issuing the Will to Power album back in 2017.

It's a ferocious track lined with rampaging rhythms and, although the melodic elements are still abundantly present, "Deceiver, Deceiver" isn't an explosion of sing-song guitar lines. Instead, the melodic elements are used to texture the darker atmosphere... well, until the solos hit toward the end.

"Surprise! We are Arch Enemy and we are back with our newest single 'Deceiver, Deceiver' which is available everywhere that you listen to music now. So go check it out and also check out our stories because we are counting down to the live music video premiere for 'Deceiver, Deceiver' later today, so we'll see you there," stated frontwoman Alissa White-Gluz in a video message on social media.

Guitarist Michael Amott commented, "Wait...what? Has it really been four years since we last released new Arch Enemy music? Time flies...especially when you tour the world for a couple of years, decide to take some time off...and then we all get hit with a global fckn pandemic! Everyone's been through hard times these last couple of years, and it's beautiful to see everything coming back now. This very much feels like the right moment to return with a brand new song, 'Deceiver, Deceiver'! Not the happiest of tunes, but believe me — we're ecstatic to be back!"

No word has come through as to whether "Deceiver, Deceiver" will be part of a new record, but with such a long gap between studio efforts, with 2019's Covered in Blood covers album serving as a stopgap, it all seems quite probable that more new original music is on the way.

Listen to the new Arch Enemy song below and read the lyrics (via AZ Lyrics) below as well. For now, only the audio is available, but come 12PM ET, the band will officially unveil the accompanying music video.

Arch Enemy, "Deceiver, Deceiver" Lyrics

Secrets whispered through a veil of lies
When did I become this person you despise?

Open my eyes
You've been in disguise
The door is closing
You're on the outside now
It's curtain call

After everything I did for you
This is what you choose to put me through?
What happened to the concept of loyalty?
I guess there really is no more honesty!

Open my eyes
You've been in disguise
The door is closing
You're on the outside now
It's curtain
It's curtain call

Deceiver, deceiver
My head still spinning from your Judas kiss
Deceiver, deceiver
Not one thing about you I will miss

You put on a great act, I'll give you that
Go on and take a bow you despicable rat
Accept the applause, you king of whores
This is your grand finale

Deceiver, deceiver
My head still spinning from your Judas kiss
Imposter, I see you
Thou beast slain, tyrant, show thy face!

Open my eyes
You've been in disguise
The door is closing
You're on the outside now
It's curtain call
It's curtain call

Deceiver, deceiver
I see... you!

Arch Enemy, "Deceiver, Deceiver"
