A trailer for “Father Of The Wolf”, the new video from Swedish death metallers AMON AMARTH, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s ninth studio album, “Deceiver Of The Gods”, which was released in North America on June 25 via Metal Blade Records.
Recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, United Kingdom, and produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (OPETH, MEGADETH,EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE), the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2011 “Surtur Rising” full-length delivers ten fiery battle hymns made of buzzsaw riffs and epic harmonies all driven by vocalist Johan Hegg‘s commanding Viking roar and absorbing accounts of Norse crusades and treachery.
“Deceiver Of The Gods” comes adorned with another outstanding Tom Thiel-created cover portraying a mythical battle between the Norse GodsLoki and Thor. As an added bonus, Messiah Marcolin (CANDLEMASS) makes an appearance as guest vocalist on eighth track, “Hel”.
Following a run of European festival dates, AMON AMARTH will open the main stage of this year’s edition of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, set to commence June 29 in San Bernardino.
