  NEW AMON AMARTH ALBUM STREAMING IN FULL THIS WEEKEND
21st June 2013

amon amarth



With the long-anticipated release of Amon Amrath's 'Deceiver Of The Gods' now only a few days away, Ultimate-Guitar today hurls forth a stream of the band's mammoth new studio recording in its entirety!

Bursting at the seams with authority, melody and immersive storytelling centered around the richness of Norse mythology, Amon Amarth have consistently upped their game with each release in their storied discography and their ninth offering is no exception.

'Deceiver Of The Gods' captures the quintet at the peak of their powers. Said Decibel Magazine in a 9/10 rating of the record: "'Deceiver Of The Gods' goes from rampaging to brooding to anthemic over a well-conceived trajectory. This is an album that begs to be consumed in its entirety at every listen, just to get the full experience."

Hear for yourself, for a limited time at this location.

'Deceiver Of The Gods' was recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, UK, produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (Opeth, Megadeth, Exodus, Arch Enemy, Killswitch Engage) and bears another brilliant Tom Thiel-crafted cover depicting a mythical battle between the Norse Gods Loki and Thor.

With 2013 marking Amon Amarth's twenty-first year, as well as the fifteenth anniversary of their debut full-length, their longevity and reputation for releasing killer album after killer album places them on a similar trajectory to the likes of Slayer and Cannibal Corpse, which is rarified company to be in. Likewise, having seen many younger faces flocking to their shows alongside their longtime faithful, the band are enjoying themselves now as much as they ever have, and vocalist Johan Hegg wouldn't have it any other way.

"It feels fantastic that we've been able to do this for so long and managed to get this far, and it's been a hell of a ride. I don't think we've yet reached the limit of how far the band can go, and we still have plenty of aspirations - and opening for Iron Maiden one day remains high on the list! I'm just happy as long as we can continue doing this. I try not to lose myself in dreams of what might be and rather focus on where we're at and what we're doing right now, and having as much fun along the way as we can."

'Deceiver Of The Gods' will be released in the UK on June 24th. Special preorder packages are still available at http://www.metalblade.com/amonamarth.





WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
