This September heavy metal overlords AMON AMARTH will descend from the land of ice and snow to headline a history-making charge across North America with fellow Swedish warlords ARCH ENEMY, AT THE GATES and GRAND MAGUS, and carnage is on the menu.
The "Berserker" world tour will be a showcase of the riffing havoc captured on AMON AMARTH's 11th studio album, "Berserker", and will treat fans to the kind of pulverizing riffage and sublime, fist-in-the-air anthems the band have come to be known for, because no words are more synonymous with AMON AMARTH than unrivaled songcraft and unswerving commitment to no-bullshit heavy fucking metal — and now they have a landmark tour to match.
Speaking on this most epic of tours, AMON AMARTH says: "Berserkers! We will lead a Swedish metal invasion of North America this September and October along with our friends ARCH ENEMY, AT THE GATES and GRAND MAGUS. Come fight and feast with us and earn your seat in the great golden hall. This raid is pure heavy fucking metal and not to be missed!"
Michael Amott of ARCH ENEMY adds: "ARCH ENEMY is very much looking forward to invading North America together with Swedish Viking kings AMON AMARTH and our metal brothers in AT THE GATES and GRAND MAGUS! Miss this Swedish heavy metal apocalypse at your own peril!”
Finally, JB of GRAND MAGUS enthuses: "I would say that epic is the most fitting word to describe this happening. It's an honor to be part of this gathering of metal giants and we will do our damnedest to make it a memory for life for all who will bang their heads with us during this adventure!"
