Description

    Amon Amarth will release their 11th full-length, Berserker, via Sony Music!
     
    Comprising 12 monstrous heavy metal anthems that bulge with irresistible melodic hooks, bursts of thrilling savagery and moments of spine-tingling dynamic drama, Berserker is the result of the huge surge of creativity and a collective desire to keep moving forward with no compromise.

    From the disarming melodrama and explosive riffing of opener "Fafner's Gold" and the brutish simplicity of the rampaging "Crack The Sky" to the epic fury of "Raven's Flight" and the grim, gritty storytelling of "Ironside" and "Skoll and Hati", Berserker is an album full of trademark Amon Amarth bluster and bite but with every aspect of the band's sound somehow refined, sonically enhanced and made vastly more potent, both in terms of metal oomph and emotional power.

    Neatly summing up the spirit behind these exhilarating new songs is the album's semi-title track, "The Berserker At Stamford Bridge": a visceral but vivid historical tale, recounting the Vikings last stand against the English army in 1066 and the mind-bending heroics of one axe-wielding warrior.

    Showcasing an undeniable and startling upgrade for every aspect of Amon Amarth's iconic sound, Berserker was recorded in Los Angeles with renowned studio guru Jay Ruston (Anthrax/Stone Sour) manning the controls.

    After recording several rounds of professional demos for the new songs (initially with fellow Swedish metal icon Peter Tägtgren and then later with Ruston himself) the band crossed the Atlantic to make final the recordings in LA, eager to take a fresh approach to the album-making process.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They've still got it This album is honestly a contender for the best album this year. It's typical Amon: riffs that make you want to go to war, vocals that hit you in the core of your soul and stories about heroes not forgotten. I could say much more about it but you have to listen to it to believe.
