Their eighth album <strong><em>Surtur Rising</em></strong> was yet another masterclass in storytelling and viking mythology, paired with another round of badass melodic death metal.</p> <p><strong>Amon Amarth</strong> are still head and shoulders above their peers in this genre, and this record was just more evidence.</p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"> <iframe width="640" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-5aaoquyg8tw" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/5aaOqUYG8Tw?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe></div> <h1 class="text-align-center"> <strong>Deafheaven - Roads To Judah</strong></h1> <p><img alt="Deafheaven Roads To Judah" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="79fcf3cc-00d4-4354-ab83-bbfb18db384c" src="/sites/g/files/g2000010271/files/roads%2520to%2520judah.jpg" class="align-center" /> <p>After <strong>Deafheaven</strong> released their impressive first demo in 2010, <strong>Deathwish Inc</strong> quickly signed the band for their debut album <em><strong>Roads Of Judah</strong></em>, which made quite a big splash upon its release, and for good reason too.</p> <p>Pushing the boundaries of what black metal was traditionally known for, <strong>Deafheaven</strong> expertly weaved shoegaze elements into the mix, resulting in a lush, dense and emotional debut LP. </p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"> <iframe width="640" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-jiydfima2qy" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/jiydFImA2QY?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe></div> <h1 class="text-align-center"><strong>Wormrot - Dirge</strong></h1> <p><img alt="Wormrot Dirge" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="8cb57124-8217-4b76-a7e3-5d23532c787a" src="/sites/g/files/g2000010271/files/wormrot.jpg" class="align-center" /> <p>Singaporean grindcore band <strong>Wormrot</strong> are one of the most intense, ferocious and pissed off bands you can find out there - their second album <strong><em>Dirge</em></strong> is a 25-track shotgun blast to the face with only five of those tracks lasting over a minute in length.</p> <p>It's crusty, filthy and downright fantastic, and it earned them a global following which the band have retained to this day!<br />  </p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"> <iframe width="640" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-nt5ompj2-c0" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Nt5OmpJ2_c0?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe></div> <h1 class="text-align-center"><strong>The Black Dahlia Murder - Ritual</strong></h1> <p><img alt="TBDM - ritual" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="fd65424e-56d8-457e-b3c5-066a3e19ad02" src="/sites/g/files/g2000010271/files/bdm.jpg" class="align-center" /> <p>If you know anything about <strong>The Black Dahlia Murder</strong>, then you'll know that it's almost impossible for the death metal titans to put out a bad record. A fantastic display of musicianship, technicality and songwriting was the order of the day on <strong><em>Ritual</em></strong>, and it's a killer listen for any fan of the genre.</p> <p>As it turns out, <strong><em>Ritual</em></strong> was also their highest-charting album to date, hitting #31 on the <strong>Billboard 200</strong> in the US - a pretty amazing feat for such an extreme band!</p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"> <iframe width="640" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-ydevqdw2fma" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/yDEvqdw2fmA?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe></div> <h1 class="text-align-center"> <strong>August Burns Red - Leveler</strong></h1> <p><img alt="ABR - leveler" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="d65e7252-8975-4723-9e49-30b35abead8d" src="/sites/g/files/g2000010271/files/leveler.jpg" class="align-center" /> <p>While we're on the topic of consistent bands, <strong>August Burns Red</strong> did their part in 2011 by dropping this belter of a metalcore record for us to all mosh in our rooms to.</p> <p>Breakdowns, technical shredding and unbelievable drum work from <strong>Matt Greiner</strong>, who is widely noted as one of the best drummers in the game altogether.

Scroll on for the full interview:&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>You guys have really stepped it up with Berserker. What gives the band that desire to continually improve and refine what you do?</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">Well I mean that's something we are always trying to do - it's always been our goal to outdo ourselves in songwriting, production, everything you know. So yeah, I think I'm really happy how this album turned out and it's certainly exceeded my expectations.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">A testament to how happy we were with this album was that we were gonna put ten songs on it and two were going to be bonus tracks. But we couldn't decide which two would be the bonus tracks&nbsp;because everyone has different favourite songs. So we just put all of them on the album (laughs).&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>Which were the two songs which had conflicting opinions?</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">Oh dude, seriously, it was more like three, five, ten tracks (laughs).&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>That's always a good sign! What about you personally - you've been doing Amon Amarth for over 25 years now. What keeps you passionate about the band after so long?</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">Well that's easy - for me it's playing live. Doing the live show is what I enjoy the most, and although writing the songs and the lyrics and all that is fun too, the thing about the live show is having that instant connection and reaction, whereas with writing and recording you work on something for a whole year and then you have to wait&nbsp;<em>another</em> six months until you finally get people's opinion about it. I love the instant connection with the audience.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/H24S0nym-pE" width="560" height="314" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>Can you try and describe the moment you found out that you would be supporting Slayer on their final North American tour next month?</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">(laughs) It felt fantastic man. I think when the question came if we would be willing to do it, of course we jumped on it. I can say that Slayer are probably the favourite band for everyone in Amon Amarth. Obviously we have a lot of favourite bands but Slayer are the one that we can all agree on as being right up there, you know. So to be able to go on a tour with these legends, on their farewell tour, was an honour to have been asked to be a part of it. The package is amazing with Cannibal Corpse and Lamb Of God as well so it's gonna be a lot of fun!&nbsp;<strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>What's the best show you've ever been to Johan?</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">Best show I've ever been to? Hmm...I think one of the most absolutely insane shows overall was probably Iron Maiden here in Stockholm last year at the Tele2 Arena. I mean their stage production was just bonkers (laughs). I don't know what to say, I mean, they do the intro song and you're standing there looking at the stage, it goes dark and then the light comes back on and there's a fucking massive spitfire hanging above the&nbsp;stage! You're just standing there like "what the fuck is going on" - brilliant, amazing, fantastic show. Obviously Iron Maiden are a great band and another one of our favourites and yeah it was a privilege to see that show.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>You've been bringing out giant viking ships, sea monsters and fire galore for your live shows. Are you going to try and somehow top that like you've done with Berserker?</strong></p> <p>Of course we are, we're actually working on some stuff for the stage right now. There's nothing I can really reveal about it but you'll see it soon!</p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/ILaK3NISOmQ" width="560" height="314" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>You're obviously a pretty big beer fan. So - what do&nbsp;you think of ours?</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">There's some pretty good stuff in Australia! I'm trying to think which ones I've had...obviously I've had Coopers but I'm not sure you can really call that&nbsp;localised&nbsp;anymore 'cause it's massive and you can find that everywhere but yeah there is definitely some good stuff down your way.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>I've seen a ton of online fan videos about Game Of Thrones which use Amon Amarth's music in them. Are you hanging out for the final season?</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">Oh yeah man, I love Game Of Thrones, I think it's a great show. My wife would probably kill me if I watch episodes without her so I'm gonna have to stay away from everything and watch it when I get back home [from tour]. Spoilers are hard to avoid with that show but then again I don't really listen to people anyway (laughs).&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>Going back to the new record, you wrote the lyrics after the the music had been completed which was a different process this time around. Was it harder, easier, different inspiration?</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: left;">For the most part that's how I wrote the lyrics this time. What I did have...I had a bunch of ideas or topics that I was exploring but I hadn't written anything until I'd really started hearing the music for it. In some instances I would listen to a song on repeat and then all of a sudden (clicks fingers) there would be like one word that would come to my mind and you kind of create from there. I also did have a couple of lyrics that I'd already started working on before I had any music but in general the music came first. On [our last record] Jomsviking I already had the lyrics first but that was a concept album so we had to have the lyrical ideas before anything else came.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>Something that you've always done really well is paint a vivid picture with your lyrics whether it be of a war, a ship sailing through a storm or another mythological setting. Do you consider yourself involved with storytelling as much as death metal?</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">That's kind of what we always wanted to do from the start of Amon Amarth. In a way we would say "if these lyrics were a movie, what would the soundtrack be like?" or "if this was the soundtrack to a movie, what would the lyrics be about?". So it's always very important that the music and lyrics fit perfectly together because we do tell stories. Mythological, historical or sometimes really personal ones that we use Viking mythology as a backdrop for. It's all about making the lyrics and music go hand in hand for us.</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>I know you were here in Australia only a year ago for Download, but we miss you already!&nbsp;</strong><strong>When will we get to raise our horns with you once more?</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">I promise we will be back! Unfortunately though I don't have any concrete information on that right this minute...&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>Amon Amarth's</strong> new album<em><strong> Berserker</strong></em> is out on May 3!</p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;<img src="/sites/g/files/g2000010271/files/tinymce_file__25cc68a894df8cd565cd10bccb4008d21ae810e6.jpeg" alt="" width="600" height="600"></p> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><strong>&nbsp;Listen to Amon Amarth now.</strong></h3> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong></p> <iframe src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/artist/3pulcT2wt7FEG10lQlqDJL" width="600" height="420" frameborder="0"></iframe><p></strong></p> <p></body></html></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags-tier-2 field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Tags Tier 2</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/23116" hreflang="en">Amon Amarth</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/43431" hreflang="en">Johan Hegg</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/43381" hreflang="en">Berserker</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-id field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">News id</div> <div class="field__item">204206</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-blog-thumbnail field--type-image field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Blog Thumbnail</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <img src="/sites/g/files/g2000010271/files/files/johan%252520hegg__89a33f9ece2861ced6a38de95dff1d449c657308.jpg" width="1200" height="627" alt="Amon Amarth&#039;s Johan Hegg Talks New Album, Seeing Iron Maiden and More" title="Amon Amarth&#039;s Johan Hegg Talks New Album, Seeing Iron Maiden and More" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-slug-url field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Slug URL</div> <div class="field__item">amon-amarths-johan-hegg-talks-new-album-seeing-iron-maiden-and-more</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-is-carousel-news field--type-boolean field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Is carousel news</div> <div class="field__item">Off</div> </div> Sun, 14 Apr 2019 07:32:00 +0000 Site Factory admin 170751 at https://www.maniacsonline.com.au Amon Amarth Announce New Album and Release Epic Single 'Raven's Flight', Listen Now https://www.maniacsonline.com.au/news/amon-amarth-announce-new-album-and-release-epic-single-ravens-flight-listen-now-204016 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Amon Amarth Announce New Album and Release Epic Single &#039;Raven&#039;s Flight&#039;, Listen Now</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Site Factory admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 03/20/2019 - 18:41</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"><br /> <html><body><br /> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/sites/g/files/g2000010271/files/tinymce_file__826a2f14359e58933e24c4a355d0caa32e14bb31.jpeg" alt="" width="550" height="288"></p> <p style="text-align: left;">It's time to take up your&nbsp;sword and shield once more, because&nbsp;<strong>Amon Amarth</strong> are back with the announcement of their 11th studio album&nbsp;<em><strong>Berserker</strong></em>, which will be out on May 3.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">On top of that, they've released the first single titled&nbsp;<em>'Raven's Flight'</em>&nbsp;and it's ridiculously epic, melodic and tough all at once (even by their standards!).</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><em>'Raven's Flight'</em>&nbsp;will be the first of a trilogy of music videos from&nbsp;<em><strong>Berserker</strong></em>, each one increasingly epic in its scope, further immersing the viewer in the world of&nbsp;<strong>Amon Amarth</strong>.
