AMON AMARTH TO SEIZE NORTH AMERICA THIS FALL


Amon Amarth Swedish metal powerhouse AMON AMARTH has announced a fall North American headlining tour in support of their long-awaited new studio album, Twilight of the Thunder God (September 30; Metal Blade). The scheduled 3 week trek will kick off on October 1 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA and feature support by Helsinki folk-metal act Ensiferum, Austrian blackened death metal band Belphegor and Tampa, Florida melodic death metal troupe The Absence.

Twilight of the Thunder God was recorded at Fascination Street Studio in Írebro, Sweden and features several high-profile guest appearances that include Entombed singer L.G. Petrov, Children of Bodom guitarist Roope Latvala and Finnish cello metal band Apocalyptica. Showcasing 10 new tracks of menacing battle metal replete with swarming riffs and searing percussion that provides a monolithic backdrop for vocalist Johan Hegg's wracked howls and lyrics rife with Nordic mythology, AMON AMARTH seamlessly combines the key attributes of death, black and power metal while pushing the band's "fantasy-fueled sonic mayhem" to new heights on Twilight of the Thunder God.

*Check out the band's video/studio diary and regular installments of an AMON AMARTH comic book at Metal Blade's special multi-media website devoted to Twilight of the Thunder God: click here.
