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.
