BlankTV sat down for some brutal Norse discourse and learned the secrets of Swedish melodic death metal Vikings Amon Amarth as they rapped with guitarist Olavi Mikkonen about their “Surtur Rising” tour, the 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise, learn some lewd Swedish sayings, and Amon Amarth’s very own beer, Ragnarök Porter from Three Floyds Brewing (which the band and fans had the pleasure of having on tap at the April 14th Chicago show). Check out the video and Ragnarök Porter label here.

Amon Amarth is in the middle of their “An Evening With Amon Amarth” U.S. tour and will be starting their European tour on May 13th in Oslo, Norway with openers Black Dahlia Murder and Evocation. “Surtur Rising” is the band’s eighth full-length studio album and debuted at #34 on the Billboard Top 200.
