AMON AMARTH ARE NOT “SLAVES OF FEAR”
Let’s keep this one simple: ANOTHER NEW AMON AMARTH TRACK! WHOO-HOO!!!
It’s called “Slaves of Fear,” and it’s streaming over at The Deciblog. The song’s main riff is insanely catchy, which is not unusual for Amon Amarth, but it’s also got a very buoyant quality, which I do find unusual for this band. It’s almost like a cock rock riff, or something that might appear in a training montage — an awesome, viking metal training montage (I don’t know what that might entail, but I’m guessing it would include lessons in rape, murder, and binge drinking). All of which is totally excellent.
Headbang here. Amon Amarth’s latest, Surtur Rising, comes out March 29 on Metal Blade. As Vince reported last week, the band will start a U.S. tour in April, during which they’ll play the entire new record during their first set and then play a SECOND set of old favorites. Get dates after the jump.
