Tour de Force



Amon Amarth U.S. Tour Evening With

Leyla got to go the recent “An Evening with Amon Amarth” North American headlining tour, in which the band played two sets — their entire new (awesome awesome awesome) album, Surtur Rising, and a set of classics — and it sounds like she had a great time. But due to a scheduling conflict, Vince and I missed it. And we were really, really sad about that. I’m not being facetious in the slightest — we were totally bummed out.

Lucky for us, and any other poor bastards who didn’t get to go, the band is coming back for a second round in August! So… thank Odin for second chances. I’m so happy we’ll get to see one of these shows after all.

(And on a semi-related note, I know some people have been asking when we’re gonna announce winners for the beard growing contest. Well, believe it or not, some of the winners don’t seem to be responding to their e-mails! So check your inboxes and spam folders, people! And hopefully we can finally announce the winners really, really soon.)
