AMON AMARTH's "Destroyer Of The Universe" video can be viewed below. The performance clip was filmed on May 6 at the Theatre Of Living Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by director David Brodsky of MyGoodEye.
"Destroyer Of The Universe" comes off AMON AMARTH's eighth studio album, "Surtur Rising", which sold around 15,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 34 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, "Twilight of the Thunder God", opened with more than 11,000 copies back in 2008 to land at No. 48.
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, "Surtur Rising", which came out in North America on March 29 via Metal Blade Records, features 10 tracks of sword-wielding, fist-pumping, hyper climactic battle anthems. The album was once again recorded at Fascination Street Studios in rebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren and features strikingly brutal cover art by Tom Thiel.
