In March of this Year AMON AMARTH released their 8th studio album Surtur Rising via Metal Blade Records and continues to reap praise and from fans and critics alike. AMON AMARTH nailed a cover spot of the April 2011 issue of Decibel Magazine and earned a 9/10 rating from Outburn who commended the band for delivering “a collection that is brimming with beefy riffs, insidious melodies, and a truly epic sense of scale.”
Following up a hugely successful U.S.headlining tour that found the band touring without support and instead performing two separate sets each night, melodic death metal legends AMON AMARTH will return to North Americafor the second leg of the “An Evening With AMON AMARTH” tour.
Scheduled to kick off in Vancouveron August 4, the trek will ravage its way through 22 cities, including several Canadian venues, and come to a close in Boiseon September 3. The first set will again feature the band performing the recently-released, critically-acclaimed Surtur Rising album in its entirety while the second will offer up mixed bag of tunes from their extensive catalog of Norse-inspired awesomeness.
“Yes, it is true! We are coming back to tour North America. The Spring tour turned out to be so successful, and we had such a great time playing the double sets each night, that we decided to bring ‘An evening With AMON AMARTH’ to the rest of the continent, including Canada! We will perform the new album in its entirety, and after that we’re doing a revised second set with all the classics as well as some ‘wild-cards,’” Commented the band in a collective statement.
