AMON AMARTH To Film 'Cry Of The Black Birds' Video This MonthJanuary 9, 2007
Swedish metallers AMON AMARTH have issued the following update:
"The last two months have been hectic, but we've had a blast. The headlining tour in Europe went over expactations and we'd like to thank WINTERSUN and TYR, as well as our European crew and of course everyone who came to the shows. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
"After the last show in Hamburg we flew straight to Detroit to join CHILDREN OF BODOM, GOJIRA and SANCTITY on the North American leg of the tour and although it was taxing and with some off stage problems, the tour was nothing but awesome and successful for us! It was great to see the support we got every night and we want to thank you fans for that.
"We've been home resting over the holidays and still have some time off from the band. Later this month it's time to start preparing for the Scandinavian leg, and on the 25th we'll start shooting the second video for the new album. For that we've chosen 'Cry of the Black Birds'."
AMON AMARTH's latest CD, "With Oden on Our Side", entered the national album chart in Sweden at No. 21 and in Austria at No. 27.
