Amon Amarth - Added To The Unholy Alliance III Tour


Amon Amarth will be part of the European run of "The Unholy Alliance, Chapter III" along side with Trivium, Mastodon and Slayer.

We are very proud and honored to be a part of this year's Unholy Alliance together with Trivium and Mastodon. Slayer fans are die-hard and tough as true Vikings - we know as we are part of the same crowd - and it will be a great experience to be able to play in front of them."

I've seen them all, and considering Trivium's music they're a good live band. But I wouldn't like to see them again. They could have found something much better. Oh, and Sweden please?

What precisely is "Unholy" about Trivium and Mastodon? I never understood the hype about Mastodon, Trivium is passable but they lack any form of originality.

Does it matter? Obviously Slayer as a headliner is 'unholy', but who cares baout holyness. It's about fucking metal dude. And agree, Mastodon sucks. I've seen Trivium live though, together with Machine Head, Shadows Fall and Arch Enemy, and they kicked ass. I just think they should kick all their newer stuff out of the set and play only Ascendancy and eventually even older stuff. But they rock.

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

Trivium is about as Unholy as Stryper

and Mastodon only has one good song...n it starts off like this

"DONT TALK WATCH, DONT TALK WATCH, YOU CAME HERE WATCH IT! DON'T LIKE IT WALK OUT!"

Only good song

I know I was just making a bad joke. Anyway, I can't wait to see all the Trivium fans surrounded by the Slayer fans.

Boooorrrrriiinnnnnngggggg.

Slayer = old.
Mastodon I've seen, and Amarth I've seen too many times.
As for Trivium...... .

I'm DEFINITELY passing on this tour.
I'll waste 80$ on something more worth my time, effort, and money, thanks.
