I really needed a palate-cleanser after that last post about the Revolver “Golden Gods” Award, and man, did I find one: good quality film of Amon Amarth‘s performance in Denver on April 17.

They played Seattle on the night of April 20. My two NCS co-founders Alexis and IntoTheDarkness were at that show and reported that it was indeed epic. I was out of town and missed it. I am not happy about that.

I’m having to console myself with these Denver clips. The first one is the band playing “Destroyer of the Universe” and the second is “Tock’s Taunt – Loke’s Treachery Part II”. Both songs are from Amon Amarth’s new album, Surtur Rising, which is one of our favorites of the year-to-date. Check them out after the jump. Fuck yes.

  1. Really wish there was more guitar in these recordings, it sounds quite tame and that’s not how anybody should like their Amon Amarth.

    • Yes, the sound quality is more muddy and bass-heavy than one would wish, but speaking as someone who missed out on the chance to see this tour, I’m making do with what I can get my hands on. I hope they’ll eventually release an “official”, pro-quality video of at least one song from this tour before too long.
