AMON AMARTH announce title of forthcoming album; "Surtur Rising"
New album set to come out spring 2011!
AGOURA HILLS, Calif. – November 30, 2010 – Kings of Swedish death metal AMON AMARTH have just announced the title of the band's forthcoming album as Surtur Rising. Due out in the spring of 2011, Surtur Rising marks the group's 8th full-length studio release and undoubtedly one of 2011's most anticipated releases by fans and critics alike. Surtur Rising is the follow up to the highly acclaimed, 2008 release, Twilight of the Thunder God, which landed the #7 spot in Revolver Magazine's Top 20 Albums of 2008 and what Metal Sucks called "[a] bottomless gauntlet of riffs that the band endlessly takes gargantuan swigs from, sounding both lush and emotive as well as skull crushingly heavy… every goddamn one is a chest-beating anthem." Outburn declared how Twilight of the Thunder God "will render you nothing short of ecstatic" and Time Out New York noted that "Amon Amarth plays some of the most unabashedly epic metal you're likely to find these days."
