The Trailer For AMON AMARTH's "Forging Mjölnir" Mini Documentary Is Available Now!

Today (May 20), melodic Death Metal legion AMON AMARTH has revealed a trailer for their forthcoming mini documentary which can be viewed below. Fittingly titled "Forging Mjölnir", the short film will appear as a three-part series with each official segment slated to premiere via the band's microsite at http://deceiver.amonamarth.com.

The "Forging Mjölnir" documentary comes in anticipation of AMON AMARTH's ninth studio offering, 'Deceiver of the Gods'. Recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, UK, and produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (Opeth, Megadeth, Exodus, Arch Enemy, Killswitch Engage), the follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed 2011 'Surtur Rising' full-length delivers ten fiery battle hymns made of buzzsaw riffs and epic harmonies all driven by vocalist Johan Hegg's commanding Viking roar and absorbing accounts of Norse crusades and treachery. 'Deceiver of the Gods' comes adorned with another outstanding Tom Thiel-created cover portraying a mythical battle between the Norse Gods Loki and Thor. As an added bonus, Messiah Marcolin (Candlemass) makes an appearance as guest vocalist on eighth track, "Hel."

'Deceiver of the Gods' will be released in North America via Metal Blade Records June 25th, in Europe June 21st/24th and Japan on June 26th.
