Amon Amarth - New Album Cover Art And Tracklist Revealed


Swedish metallers Amon Amarth will release their forthcoming album, Surtur Rising, in North America on March 29 via Metal Blade Records. The album was recorded again at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren and the cover artwork was done by Tom Thiel.

Named in tribute to Surtur, leader of the fire giants of Muspelheim ("flame land") and the oldest being in the nine worlds of Norse mythology, the record, which was listed among Decibel Magazine's most anticipated albums of 2011, features 10 tracks of sword-wielding, fist-pumping, hyper climactic battle anthems.


Surtur Rising [cover art] tracklist:

01. War Of The Gods
02. Töck's Taunt - Loke's Treachery Part II
03. Destroyer Of The Universe
04. Slaves Of Fear
05. Live Without Regrets
06. The Last Stand Of Frej
07. For Victory Or Death
08. Wrath Of The Norsemen
09. A Beast Am I
10. Doom Over Dead Man

Nice one. A cover with a little taste of early/mid years of Amon Amarth. I like it. Let's hope the album is as good. I'm sure it is!

Anybody know if there are package deals for this CD? It would be cool to get a t-shirt with the album. I don't know if Metablade does that like Nuclear Blast.

Amon Amarth have a history of epic and awesome album covers, and this is no exception. I am excited for this album; Amon Amarth is a very qualified type of band.

Back to the old cover artwork style with a lot of red-yellow & black, I would be pretty much satisfied if the album will be uptempo,epic etc. & not a mid-tempo mediocrity.

Good one!

I hope this will be better than "Twilight Of The Thunder God", which was kinda disappointing considering how much I liked "With Oden On Our Side".
