And our Surtur Rising watch continues . . .

Just hours ago, Metal Hammer debuted the third song from Amon Amarth‘s forthcoming album. This song is called “For Victory Or Death”. Amazingly, the song sounds like Amon Amarth, which means it’s another immediately recognizable melodeath gallop. I’m not quite as enamored of this one as I was of the first two (both of which we slapped up on this site as fast as humanly possible after their release), but I do like it, and it certainly does nothing to dim my enthusiasm for this album.

I couldn’t hack the Metal Hammer site in a way that would allow me to embed the song here at NCS — but I then discovered that the song made its way to YouTube about one hour ago.  So . . . click past the jump and you can hear “For Victory Or Death” without leaving the grasping claws of NCS.


  1. Is it just me or is the intro melody much more…melodic than most Amon Amarth songs?

    Still, Amon Amarth is undeniably Amon Amarth! 🙂

    • No, not you, I agree. It’s just those high-pitched notes though, the support chords in the background are still clean and original Amon Amarth.

      • Yes, you said what I meant without me knowing what I meant!

        Um…I thought it worked well, though. It’s like a bit of salt’n’pepper thrown on a well done steak!

  2. Amon Amarth will assuredly always be one of my favorite bands of all time. I carry viking blood in these veins. My friends and I made our own homemade meade and I’m planning a while Viking Themed party and Amon Amarth will most definitely be blaring. Along with many others of course.

  3. Just looking at the feedback on Amon Armarth, a well known band gets like these guys gets only a few responses and Nuns in the Nude gets a shit load.

    It must be something to do with naked chicks. I could be wrong though!

  4. A trenchant observation. I noticed this, too. I think part of the explanation is that there’s just not a whole lot you need to say about Amon Amarth. And part of it has to do with naked chicks. 🙂 But I tell you, I gave up long ago trying to guess what NCS posts will generate comments and which ones won’t. I just put ’em up and sit back to see what happens, which is just fine, because I like surprises.

    • Amon Armarth do speak for themselves.

      I’m now going to go off track. I find NCS very educational, some words you use I have to go to a dictionary to find out what the the fuck they mean otherwise parts the posts don’t make sense to me.

      Thanks for the Schooling.

  5. Amon Amarth and NCS 🙂 , Two of my favorites themes these days! Keep upd the good work. Hail from Slovenia!
