Michael Amott is afraid of Jeff Loomis

Amott was asked about the lack of songwriting credits (as in 0) to Loomis on the new Arch Enemy record. His answer: "No. I mean, he's a strong songwriter, but not in the style of ARCH ENEMY, I feel. He's always writing and recording with his own stuff. He has a project called CONQUERING DYSTOPIA, he has his solo stuff, [and] he obviously wrote most of the NEVERMORE stuff. I've always respected him, and continue to respect him, as a guitar player — he's amazing and an amazing human being; he fits in perfectly. [There's] a great chemistry [between us]. But, you know, I've always written most of the music, so it's difficult to… I don't really wanna change the sound of the band too much. The band sort of started around my songwriting and my ideas, and those continue to be the most dominant ones, I guess. But, you know, who knows [what can happen] in the future?" Translation: "He's really fucking good and I don't want him to upstage me." This blows. I can only assume that Will to Power will sound exactly like Arch Enemy has sounded since Anthems of Rebellion. I can't imagine how fucking awesome it would be if Loomis was allowed creative input. I miss Nevermore.
