AMON AMARTH: New Song Available For Streaming; 'Surtur Rising' Pre-Order Options Detailed

"War Of The Gods", a brand new song from Swedish Viking metallers AMON AMARTH from the band's eighth studio album, "Surtur Rising", can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

"Surtur Rising" will be released in North America on March 29 via Metal Blade Records. Named in tribute to Surtur, leader of the fire giants of Muspelheim ("flame land") and the oldest being in the nine worlds of Norse mythology, the record, which was listed among Decibel magazine's most anticipated albums of 2011, features 10 tracks of sword-wielding, fist-pumping, hyper climactic battle anthems. The follow-up to 2008's monolithic "Twilight Of The Thunder God" full-length was recorded again at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren and features strikingly brutal cover art by Tom Thiel.
