Amon Amarth - “Berserker World Tour” 2019 - Support: Arch Enemy, Hypocrisy

Heavy Metal is a way of life, but it is not for the faint of heart. The history of Metal is strewn with fading memories of bands that fell apart when times were tough. But history is written by the victors, and AMON AMARTH have been marching purposefully from triumph to greater triumph for the last two decades. Formed amid the fertile Swedish Metal scene in the mid ‘90s, these dedicated diehards brought a new sense of drama and destruction to the world of heavy music, propagating tales of Viking mythology and mortal combat over a devastating soundtrack of crushing rhythms, refined melody and rousing, rebellious refrains.

From the release of their debut album ‘Once Sent From The Golden Hall’ in 1998, AMON AMARTH’s trajectory was firmly upward, as this band’s devotion to touring the world and spreading their inspirational creed began to resonate with ever-growing hordes of like-minded Metal heads, first across Europe and then, in true Viking style, across the Atlantic and into North America. With each successive album, AMON AMARTH’s reputation grew; their arsenal of heroic hymns gaining strength and depth at the same time. Perhaps the most significant breakthrough came with cast-iron classic ‘Twilight Of The Thunder God’ in 2008, wherein the band - vocalist Johan Hegg, guitarists Olavi Mikkonen Johan Söderberg, then drummer Fredrik Andersson and bassist Ted Lundström - seemed to perfect their formula of pulverising, fists-in-the-air anthems and shift into a higher creative gear.

The impact was immediate and vast, and since that moment they have been unstoppable, as ‘Surtur Rising’ (2011) and ‘Deceiver Of The Gods’ (2013) consolidated that success and took AMON AMARTH’s explosive and exhilarating live show around the world many more times, and in front of ever-multiplying audiences. By far their most ambitious project to date, AMON AMARTH’s tenth album ‘Jomsviking’ unfolds like a synapse-melting multi-dimensional epic, with countless moments of classic metal grandeur and deathly aggression but also a newfound mastery of atmosphere and evocative dynamics that perfectly compliment the highs, lows and furious battles of Hegg’s narrative.

Now it is time to present their latest work ‘Berserker’ which came out in May this year. The album was produced by Jay Ruston and marks the first album by the band to feature drummer Jocke Wallgren, who joined the band in 2016. According to singer Johann Hegg, ‘Berserker’s songs deal with mythological themes, while others are based on historical facts. Furthermore, there would be songs that metaphorically come across as Viking stories, but in reality deal with more profound themes. Like his predecessor, ‘Berserker’ immediately climbed to number one on the German album charts and also secured his top position in Switzerland. So the fans can be curious when the Swedes will be guesting in Luxembourg at the beginning of December.
