amon_phixr.jpgSwedish metal powerhouse AMON AMARTH recently kicked off a headlining tour in support of their long-awaited new studio album, Twilight of the Thunder God   which came out September 30 on Metal Blade.  

The 3 week trek features support by Helsinki folk-metal act Ensiferum, Austrian blackened death metal band Belphegor and Tampa, Florida melodic death metal troupe The Absence.

Twilight of the Thunder God was recorded at Fascination Street Studio in Örebro, Sweden and features several high-profile guest appearances that include Entombed singer L.G. Petrov, Children of Bodom guitarist Roope Latvala and Finnish cello metal band Apocalyptica.   Showcasing 10 new tracks of menacing battle metal replete with swarming riffs and searing percussion that provides a monolithic backdrop for vocalist Johan Hegg’s wracked howls and lyrics rife with Nordic mythology, AMON AMARTH seamlessly combines the key attributes of death, black and power metal while pushing the band’s “fantasy-fueled sonic mayhem” to new heights on Twilight of the Thunder God.
