AMON AMARTH Release "Raise Your Horns" Live Video; UK Documentary Screening / Q&A Announced

On November 16th, Amon Amarth will release their new documentary and supporting live album(s), The Pursuit Of Vikings: 25 Years In The Eye Of The Storm - which includes a retrospective documentary that features a wealth of live and behind-the-scenes content and extensive band interviews. This film tells the Swedish quintet's history, through both their own eyes and those of the fans that have supported them along the way. It is a thrilling collection that pays respect to the faithful, as well as making for a detailed and riveting introduction for those new to their inspiring story. Paired with this documentary is the live video/audio, which contains two different sets at 2017's Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbuhl, Germany, capturing the unit at their very best.

Having played the German festival numerous times over the years, and loving the family vibe they have always experienced there, Amon Amarth leapt at the chance to appear twice in the same year. Playing a secret, smaller scale set that focused primarily on older material, and then headlining the main stage with full production - including their giant sea serpent and lots of fire - allowed them to showcase their songs at their best - though putting together setlists from such a mighty catalogue was not the easiest of tasks.

"For the first night, we wanted to write a set that the fans would enjoy by wholly diving into our back catalog but also keeping it interesting," explains guitarist Olavi Mikkonen. "But putting the two shows together also made us realize that we have a lot of songs to choose from!"

 UK fans will get the chance to watch the release early, with a special fan screening event taking place in London on the evening of Monday, November 12th, at the Everyman cinema on Baker Street. With the band's Johan Hegg (vocals) and Johan Söderberg (guitar) flying in to take part in a live Q&A on the night as well, hosted by producer Alex Milas and director Phil Wallis, it's sure to be a very memorable evening. With very limited spaces, don't delay in picking up tickets, which are on sale now. Details here.
