Released on March 29th via Metal Blade Records, Surtur Rising is AMON AMARTH's eighth studio offering in a winding discography that's helped shape the very face of epic, Viking-inspired death metal. 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 was recorded, mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios Φrebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren and bears the striking cover art by Tom Thiel.
