The new Amon Amarth album Deceiver Of The Gods has been somewhat of a sleeper hit for me this year, if I need something heavy but accessible that doesn’t require too much thought then I’m back raising fists alongside these Swedish pillagers. Although the whole album is pretty great, the second track ‘As Loke Falls‘ has been a consistent favourite throughout and so I was happy to see them choose the track for a new lyric video, which you can watch below:
It’s not the most elaborate set up in the world, consisting mostly of live pictures and other assorted artwork, but this way it pushes their always catchy and heavy melodic death metal to the forefront.
If you’re in or around the UK, I’d suggest catching the band on their upcoming Defenders Of The Faith tour which started recently that features support from none-other than the legendary Carcass, which adds up to one hell of a line-up. The remaining dates are:
Nov 13 Manchester o2 Academy
Nov 14 Glasgow Barrowland
Nov 15 Bristol o2 Academy
Nov 17 London Forum
