The Skinny: Today, heavy metal powerhouse Armageddon have premiered the new track “The Watcher” via YouTube. The song hails from the band’s highly anticipated Captivity & Devourment, set for North American release on January 20th, 2015 via Listenable Records.

Armageddon, who first came to life in Sweden in 1997 as a studio project, is now resurrected in its most powerful form. The band is based out of New York City, and has brought unto itself a crushing lineup of musicians. Together, they have once again conjured up the force that is Armageddon.

Their new album, Captivity & Devourment consists of 10 awe-inspiring and ingeniously crafted songs, full of devastating riffs, soaring guitar leads, and fist-pumping choruses. Heavy, melodic, technical, and groovy: this is creative metal songwriting with one foot in deep in the classics and and one eye gazing towards the distant future.
