Amon Amarth Premiere “Shield Wall” Video

Amon Amarth have premiered a new video for their song “Shield Wall.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Berserker.”

A press release offered more info on the clip:

“Directed by Phil Wallis and produced by Alexander Milas/Twin V Ltd – the same team behind Amon Amarth‘s 2018 feature-length documentary The Pursuit of Vikings – the aim of Shield Wall was to produce a historically accurate portrayal of the battlefield tactics that Vikings were known and also notorious for.

Working closely with noted Viking scholar and battle reenactor Igor Górewicz of the Triglav and Jomsborg vikings, the video was shot on location in Wolin, Poland – site of the world-renowned annual Festival of Slavs and Vikings – and featured extras from the worlds’ foremost Viking reenactment groups, including Triglav, Maximas von Bracey’s Ulflag and Germany’s Blóðvítnir, longtime friends of Amon Amarth whose longtime member Sana portrays the story’s raiding party commander.”

“For me, this is Amon Amarth 2.0. I think what we’ve done here is give ourselves the space to explore other parts of our musicality and who we are as a band. If you’re content with where you’re at, what’s the point of continuing? We always want to come up with new ideas and find new ways of doing things and to create bigger and better shows and really try to improve every aspect of what the band is. We want to try to keep growing and to do this for as long as we have the possibility to do so, because this is the best fucking job in the world.”
