These new visuals which are part performance, part theatrical follow the life of the Berserker. Once an unstoppable force in battle, the history of the famed warrior has been shrouded in mystery.
Amon Amarth have been invading shorelines with their Viking long ships since 1992. A weathered crew with both vision and foresight, the band is constantly opening new avenues of exposure while recruiting more fans into their legions.
The new music videos for songs “Raven’s Flight” and “Crack The Sky” are no exception. Following a plotline that has spread into two visual accompaniments (so far). This vision is a clever way of building interest in their latest effort, Berserker, due to hit the mainland on May 3rd via Metal Blade Records.
These new visuals which are part performance, part theatrical follow the life of the Berserker. Once an unstoppable force in battle, the history of the famed warrior has been shrouded in mystery. Little did we know this glorified avenger has been around all along, fighting demons until the end of time.
The first video “Raven’s Flight” introduces the ageless hero idea and expands upon it with the introduction of a power goddess, possibly Freya, who wishes evil upon the band and unleashes her demons to accomplish it. Amon Amarth rumbles through sound check as malignant spirits enter the venue disguised as fans.
The second video “Crack The Sky” continues where the previous effort left off. The demons infest the crowd like a swarm of killer bees. Their demonic eyes pulsate as they size up the band for a final assault. Luckily their attack is thwarted by the arrival of a Berserker who makes mincemeat of the demons! The goddess is angrily turned away, but we know she’ll be back.
Amon Amarth have re-awakened the gods. The raven makes its final flight as the cracking sky unleashes the deity’s vengeance. Check out these stirring visions and if you happen to notice a group of demons getting wild in a mosh pit, ask Odin to send a Beserker to come and save you! \m/
