Amon Amarth Post Epic Video for New Song “Raven’s Flight”


Amon Amarth Post Epic Video for New Song “Raven’s Flight”Amon Amarth announced their new album Berserker at midnight last night and released its first single, “Raven’s Flight.” A few short hours later the band has premiered a video for the song, and it’s got all the hallmarks of an Amon Amarth epic: vikings! swords! cool CGI! the band playing live!

The plot for the “Raven’s Flight” clip follows the story of the Berserkers, a class of “beast men” warriors lost to the sands of time. The video casts Amon Amarth as the torch-bearers of that long-lost class by juxtaposing footage of an L.A. club show (with cameos by Josh Barnett [ex-UFC], Erick Rowan [WWE], a couple of industry folks we know [hello Faley and Suzy!] and several lucky Amon Amarth fans) with CGI-heavy historical viking flashback scenes. It’s badass, because duh, it’s Amon Amarth.

Berserker will come out on May 3rd via Metal Blade and is now available for pre-order here. Catch the band on tour this spring with Slayer, Lamb of God and Cannibal Corpse; dates here.
