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!

I can almost start to headbang with a drinking horn in hand just by reading the song titles !

Cool cover too, but I didn't imagine Surtur like that

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.
Black Conundrum - 19.01.2011 at 00:23  
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.
Ellrohir - 19.01.2011 at 00:24  
!!! fuck yeah !!! !!! fuck yeah !!!
Don_Doom - 19.01.2011 at 02:05  
Nice cover!!
Vitriolic Hate - 19.01.2011 at 02:11  
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".

The tracklist looks badass and the cover is totally epic, it really reminds of the older AA covers.

Amatsu Mikaboshi - 19.01.2011 at 16:04  
That is one fucker of an album cover, it looks like a cross bewtween Twilight Of The Thunder God and Versus The World but I couldn't stop thinking about God Of War and Greek myths rather then Norse when I first saw it.

FUCKING WANT THIS IN MY BURNING HANDS NOW. .
MétalNoir - 19.01.2011 at 16:04  
Cool, but the horned helmet is kinda annoying... I guess they did wear it in Muspellheim
Matthewblackhear - 19.01.2011 at 16:27
