Amon Amarth--No tour support, double sets on upcoming tour

published on February 10, 2011 by Darren Cowan
Melodic death metal tyrants Amon Amarth are proud to announce their 2011 U.S. headlining tour. Simply dubbed “An Evening With Amon Amarth,” this very special trek will find the band touring without support and instead performing two separate sets each night! One set will feature upcoming album Surtur Rising in its entirety. The Viking-inspired festivities will commence on April 14 in Chicago, Illinois and pillage its way through 17 cities throughout the country before drawing to a climactic close on May 7 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Elaborated drummer Fredrik Andersson: "We're really excited about the upcoming album, Surtur Rising. And what better way to showcase it by playing the full album on our first U.S. tour for Surtur Rising?! It's definitely a unique opportunity for our fans because not only will the album be performed live but a second set with material from our previous albums will take place. We want our fans to really experience Amon Amarth."

Surtur Rising, the band's eagerly anticipated eighth studio effort, is scheduled for North American release on March 29, 2011 via Metal Blade Records. Named in tribute to Surtur, leader of the fire giants of Muspelheim (“flame land”) and the oldest being in the nine worlds of Norse mythology, the follow-up to 2008’s heroic Twilight Of The Thunder God, was recorded, mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren and bears a striking, war-torn cover by Tom Thiel.

Amon Amarth announces new album title "Surtur Rising"

published on December 1, 2010 by Darren Cowan
AGOURA HILLS, Calif. – November 30, 2010 – Kings of Swedish death metal AMON AMARTH have just announced the title of the band's forthcoming album as Surtur Rising. Due out in the spring of 2011, Surtur Rising marks the group's 8th full-length studio release and undoubtedly one of 2011's most anticipated releases by fans and critics alike. Surtur Rising is the follow up to the highly acclaimed, 2008 release, Twilight of the Thunder God, which landed the #7 spot in Revolver Magazine's Top 20 Albums of 2008 and what Metal Sucks called "[a] bottomless gauntlet of riffs that the band endlessly takes gargantuan swigs from, sounding both lush and emotive as well as skull crushingly heavy… every goddamn one is a chest-beating anthem." Outburn declared how Twilight of the Thunder God "will render you nothing short of ecstatic" and Time Out New York noted that "Amon Amarth plays some of the most unabashedly epic metal you're likely to find these days."

AMON AMARTH is:
Johan Hegg: Vocals
Olavi Mikkonen: Guitar
Johan Söderberg: Guitar
Ted Lundström: Bass
Fredrik Andersson: Drums
