Batten down the hatches and prepare for battle as the undisputed kings of Viking heavy metal, AMON AMARTH, have announced they will be setting sail for US shores this Fall for what is set to be the death metal raid of the year. The “The Great Heathen Tour”  – produced by Live Nation – will pillage its way across North America this coming November/December, razing 27 cities to the ground in its wake. The tour concludes with a special show at the Kia Forum, Los Angeles where AMON AMARTH will bring its full European production and become the first death metal band to headline the famous venue.

Joining AMON AMARTH on their epic quest will be CARCASS, OBITUARY and CATTLE DECAPITATION, making this the must-see tour for fans of death metal.

Tickets will be on-sale this Friday, July 15th at 10 AM local time HERE.

AMON AMARTH commented: “North America, the Great Heathen Army is coming for you this fall! We have been away for a long time and now we return to raid with the death metal event of the year! We will be sacking cities across the continent with our good friends CARCASS, OBITUARY and CATTLE DECAPITATION. We intend to bring a big show and give you a night that you won’t easily forget. Miss this at your own peril…”

Jeff Walker of CARCASS added: CARCASS is looking forward to its first proper U.S. tour for…six years??? Can It really be that long??? We can’t think of a stronger tour or killer lineup for us to be part of..….it’s gonna be a RAGER!”

OBITUARY said: “We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this tour! When we got word that our good friends AMON AMARTH asked for OBITUARY to join them here in North America, there was no hesitation, just an immediate yes! We are honored to share the stage and some cold beers with them again along with our longtime friends CARCASS and San Diego brothers CATTLE DECAPITATION! If this lineup doesn’t get you excited, check your pulse cause you may be dead!”

CATTLE DECAPITATION stated: “We are thrilled to get back out on the road in the U.S. and especially with such a stacked lineup! It’s going to be a killer run and an honor to perform every night alongside these legends.”
