Swedish metallers Amon Amarth will release their forthcoming album, Surtur Rising, in North America on March 29 via Metal Blade Records. The album was recorded again at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren and the cover artwork was done by Tom Thiel.

Named in tribute to Surtur, leader of the fire giants of Muspelheim ("flame land") and the oldest being in the nine worlds of Norse mythology, the record, which was listed among Decibel Magazine's most anticipated albums of 2011, features 10 tracks of sword-wielding, fist-pumping, hyper climactic battle anthems.

Surtur Rising [cover art] tracklist:

01. War Of The Gods
02. Töck's Taunt - Loke's Treachery Part II
03. Destroyer Of The Universe
04. Slaves Of Fear
05. Live Without Regrets
06. The Last Stand Of Frej
07. For Victory Or Death
08. Wrath Of The Norsemen
09. A Beast Am I
10. Doom Over Dead Man

FUUUUUCK Finally, Loke's Treachery Part II, can't fucking wait!!!!!!
The cover is awesome man... I am a bit into norse mythology and a lot impressed by Surtr, now this is a portrait of him thats finally as great as his strength!!!

Agreed been waiting some time for the conclusion of Hermond's quest to return Baldur to Asgard.
If you are not that familiar with Norse mythology you should read the full myth, taken from Bulfinch's Mythology, here:

I can not wait for this album. Twilight of the Thunder god and Odin on our Side are my favorite albums. I just want more of that.

I wonder if there are going to be any more guest musicians on this album. Maybe another Apocalyptica cameo.

Would be nice considering 7th Symphony was a steaming pile.
