Amon Amarth Shift Shapes

  • Axl Rosenberg

Amon Amarth - Deciever of the GodsI have good news and better news for fans of vikings, beards, and awesome metal.

The good news is, Amon Amarth have launched the first of a Luke Daley-directed three-part mini documentary, Forging Mjölnir, which “celebrates the imminent release of the band’s ninth studio offering, Deceiver of the Gods,” according to a press release. As of this writing I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet so I have no idea if it’s awesome or super-awesome, but you can watch it here.

The better news is, the band is now streaming another new track, “Shape Shifter,” at Stereogum. In addition to the usual Amon Amarth musical goodness, it provides the rare example of being able to easily understand what Johan Hegg is saying. And he seems pretty, pissed, guys.

Check out “Shape Shifter” here. Deceiver of the Gods comes out June 25 on Metal Blade.
