Truth be told, Monday’s haven’t sucked at all when it comes to announcing some killer Heavy Metal touring runs and this latest news from those mighty Vikings in Amon Amarth surely will bring new levels of excitement to their fans worldwide. Check out the full press release down below.
The Press Release:
This September heavy metal overlords Amon Amarth will descend from the land of ice and snow to headline a history-making charge across North America with fellow Swedish warlords Arch Enemy, At The Gates and Grand Magus, and carnage is on the menu.
The Berserker World Tour, presented by The Noise will be a showcase of the riffing havoc captured on their 11th studio album, Berserker, and will treat fans to the kind of pulverising riffage and sublime, fist-in-the-air anthems the band have come to be known for, because no words are more synonymous with Amon Amarth than unrivaled songcraft and unswerving commitment to no-bullshit heavy fucking metal – and now they have a landmark tour to match.

It was well over a year ago that we first reported about the Slayer “Final World Tour” (seen HERE for those who are just joining us here on the website). Back in December, the band announced “LEG 5” of this Farewell Run and while the finer details can be perused HERE, this last go round begins in May. All of this leads me to the press release that recently hit my mailbox. Check it out.
The Press Release:
The end is near for mighty trash metal gods Slayer, continuing their Final World Tour with Leg 5 kicking off in May and hitting several dates across the U.S. including BB&T Pavilion on 5/24.
It was just a short time ago when the news began circulating about Slayer and the Fifth Leg of their “Final World Tour”. The North American run will feature support from Lamb Of God, Amon Amarth and Cannibal Corpse and the bands full itinerary was outlined HERE. Since the other bands would be releasing their own thoughts and some expanded press notes, I’ve chosen to shine the spotlight on each of them. Here is the Press Release from Amon Amarth.
The Press Release:
AMON AMARTH are confirmed to play “Leg Five: North America” of Slayer’s Final World Tour this spring. The trek will commence on May 2nd at the Ak-Chin Amphitheatre in Phoenix, Arizona and make its way through sixteen cities upon its conclusion at the Xfinity Center Amphitheatre in Mansfield, Massachusetts on May 25th. Additional support will be provided by Lamb Of God and Cannibal Corpse. See all confirmed dates below.
Comments AMON AMARTH, “We are very excited to hit the road with Slayer again! It is no secret that Slayer is one of our absolute favorite bands, and even though it is sad to see such an influential and legendary band retiring, it is an absolute honor to have been invited to be a part of their farewell tour.” Continue reading Amon Amarth Announces North American Tour Dates With Slayer→

The Scoop: The organizers of the Sweden Rock have unveiled a crop of amazing bands that will be joining the 2019 Festival, and since you need to know this information I am sharing it with you right here on PiercingMetal.com – Just in case the poster isn’t clear on whatever screen you are reading us on, here are the bands so far: KISS, Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, Def Leppard, Amon Amarth, Demons and Wizards, Arch Enemy, Hammerfall, Original Krokus, Skid Row, At The Gates, Annihilator, Magnum, Joe Lynn Turner, Uli Jon Roth, Death Angel, Demon, Beast In Black and “65” more acts are yet to be announced. According to their Facebook Page, they lined out that this years event sold out in a week when it went on sale, so you are going to want to pay attention to that…..check out the poster so far……(queue dramatic music).
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now before I say anything on this, I should explain that I’ve never been to ANY of the European Festivals and when I see posters and lineups like this one, it almost makes me cry. I’ve not managed to get across the pond as they say as its just not logistically possible for me to wrangle the necessary finances for it but I digress. What I love about Festivals like this one is how on point they always seem to be. With bands like KISS announcing their “End Of The Road” World Tour (discussed earlier today on THIS LINK), I’m planning on seeing them whenever I can and they are only the tip of the iceberg of bands that I am interested in who are performing at this festival. That’s all I have for now but you readers can tell me what you think about the matter down in the comments section below. Please lets all discuss.
