Melodic death metal legion Amon Amarth have been secretly preparing their forthcoming mini-documentary and now revealed a black and white trailer for Forging Mjölnir where the band discusses their earliest musical influences. Watch the trailer below. Forging Mjölnir is a short film which will appear as a three-part series with each official segment slated to premiere via the band's microsite at this location.
The Forging Mjölnir documentary comes in anticipation of Amon Amarth's ninth studio offering Deceiver Of The Gods, the follow-up to the 2011 Surtur Rising full-length. Deceiver Of The Gods comes adorned with another Tom Thiel-created cover portraying a mythical battle between the Norse Gods Loki and Thor. As an added bonus, Messiah Marcolin (Candlemass) makes an appearance as guest vocalist on the track "Hel".
The new album will be released in North America via Metal Blade Records on June 25th, in Europe on June 21st/24th and Japan on June 26th. You can still stream the title track over here.
