Amon Amarth BerserkerAmon Amarth may not have the underground cred they once did, but for many, their success will act as a gateway for new fans to discover extreme metal.

Despite this, the band still remain true to their roots and haven’t softened their sound – only refined it. Theirs is a sound that is tailormade for the festival circuit, and Berserker is sure to destroy a number of stages in due time. Amon Amarth stick to what they know and know what will stick, so if you’re looking for an ambient, jazz-fusion freak out, then go elsewhere. Berserker is designed to get heads banging and fists in the air.

Berserker is out May 3 via Sony.
