AMON AMARTH is in the midst of their North American tour with Slayer. The journey will make its way through sixteen cities upon its conclusion at the Xfinity Center Amphitheatre in Mansfield, Massachusetts on May 25th. Additional support is being provided by Lamb Of God and labelmates Cannibal Corpse. See all confirmed dates below.
The tour comes in conjunction with the release of Berserker, AMON AMARTH‘s eleventh full-length studio offering. Out today via Metal Blade Records (North America)/Sony Music (International), the record features twelve monstrous heavy metal anthems. From the disarming melodrama and explosive riffing of opener “Fafner’s Gold” and the brutish simplicity of the rampaging “Crack The Sky,” to the epic fury of “Raven’s Flight” and the grim, gritty storytelling of “Ironside” and “Skoll And Hati,” Berserker is an album full of trademark AMON AMARTH bluster and bite but with every aspect of the band’s sound somehow refined, sonically enhanced, and made vastly more potent, both in terms of metal oomph and emotional power.
Berserker was recorded in Los Angeles with renowned studio guru Jay Ruston (Anthrax/Stone Sour). After recording several rounds of professional demos for the new songs — initially with fellow Swedish metal icon Peter Tägtgren and then later with Ruston himself — the band crossed the Atlantic to make final the recordings in LA, eager to take a fresh approach to the album-making process.
