Arch Enemy singer Alissa White-Gluz plays the role of notorious serial killer Lavinia Fisher in a new art project called American Murder Song.

Fisher is often described as America’s first female serial killer, although when she was executed in South Carolina in 1820 she had been charged with highway robbery, not murder.

White-Gluz appears in American Murder Song’s first video for a track called The Innkeeper. It can be viewed below.

White-Gluz says: “I’ve been collaborating with some very cool people for a very cool project recently. You know I love musical theatre, so when Terrance Zdunich and Saar Hendelman asked me to take part in their unique new horror musical project, of course I said yes.

“Welcome to American Murder Song, where I act as the subject of a song for once rather than the author. I got to work with some old friends like Official Chibi Birthday Massacre and some new ones like Aurelio Voltaire to create something very different and interesting.”

American Murder Song is a collection of original murder ballads, with new videos being issued every Tuesday. Find out more at the official website.

Arch Enemy hit the road in August, including four UK dates with Soilwork.
