Amon Amarth are Really Fucking Good at Throwing Axes


Well, isn’t THIS a fun idea: the good folks at Banger Films took Amon Amarth axe throwing on the band’s recent tour stop in Toronto! If ever there was the perfect union of metal and vikings, this is it.

The crew visited BATL, an honest-to-goodness axe-throwing facility (who knew there was even such a thing?), and pitted the band’s two Johans (Hegg, vocals, and Söderberg, guitars) against one another in the ultimate battle of the axes. What’s most surprising is how accurate both of these guys are — I fully expect that if I did something like this the axe would hit the board handle-first and clunk against the floor. Then again, maybe they had some practice growing up in Sweden.
