Metal Blade Canada reports:

Third time is a charm when it comes to Sweden's AMON AMARTH!

Wrath Of The Norsemen DVD, which was released just a mere four months ago, has officially gone gold in Canada, being the third international territory the DVD has been released in.

"We want to thank Metal Blade Records, and especially Michael Trengert (Germany office), for making this DVD happen. We also want to thank our friends 'Die Jomswikinger', our crew, and the Roax film team for an excellent job. Last but not least we want to thank all our Canadian fans who have supported us and bought the DVD. You kick ass Canada and we will see you very soon!"

A three-disc set, the DVD was released in a deluxe 10-page digipak with special gold-laminated slipcase. The main body of the DVD is the Cologne show from 2005 - filmed with 11 cameras, this was the longest show Amon Amarth have ever played (23 songs!). Bonus footage includes interviews, behind-the-scenes of the DVD recording and other material filmed around the Cologne show. Discs 2 and 3 feature professionally filmed shows from Summer Breeze 2005, the Metal Blade Rrroooaaarrr 2005 (a show with a really unusual set list!), Wacken Open Air 2004 and the release show for Fate Of Norns in Ludwigsburg (Germany) in 2004.

Amon Amarth will be celebrating their success in Canada on their upcoming Wrath Of The Norsemen Tour. This will be the band's third time touring Canada in 2007 and we welcome them with open arms!"

The band will be playing the following shows below:

December
5 in Montreal, QC - Medley
6 in Toronto, ON - Opera House
14 in Vancouver, BC - Croatian

"Metal Blade Records Canada will also be presenting the band with their gold plaques for Wrath Of The Norsemen in Vancouver, BC on December 14th.

Also, don't forget to swing by and hang with your favorite Vikings at their in-store appearance on December 14th in Vancouver, BC at Scrape Records from 5 - 6 PM."
