Need a little pick-me-up after a long weekend off? Then take a listen to a new song by Amon Amarth. The almighty Viking metal gods have premiered a new song called “Shape Shifter” via Stereogum. That sentence should be enough to make you stop reading, scroll down and listen to the song via the player below. If it doesn’t, then maybe hearing that the song is as killer as the title track to Amon Amarth’s new album Deceiver Of The Gods will.
Meanwhile, Amon Amarth has also premiered the first of their special three-part mini documentary titled Forging Mjölnir. Filmed and directed by Luke Daley, the doc “celebrates the imminent release of the band’s ninth studio offering, Deceiver Of The Gods.” The first part, viewable here, features vocalist Johan Hegg and bassist Ted Lundström elaborating on the mythological themes present on the new album.
But first, listen to “Shape Shifter” in the player below. Then watch the first part of Forging Mjölnir here. Deceiver Of The Gods comes out on June 25 via Metal Blade Records, just in time for Mayhem Fest.
