BlankTV has premiered Amon Amarth's new video for "Destroyer of the Universe," which is off the band's latest release "Surtur Rising." The live video was shot on the band's May 6th stop in Philadelphia, PA at the Theatre Of Living Arts by director David Brodsky of MyGoodEye.

“This time around we wanted to catch the energy and atmosphere of a live show, so we simply went for a live video. We look forward to get back to North America in August to continue and fulfill the ‘Evening’ tour, meanwhile enjoy the video.” comments guitarist Olavi Mikkonen.

AMON AMARTH returns to North America for the second leg of the “An Evening with AMON AMARTH” tour in August. Scheduled to kick off in Vancouver on August 4, the trek will ravage its way through 21 cities, including several Canadian venues, and come to a close in Boise, ID on September 3. The first set will again feature the band performing the recently-released, critically-acclaimed "Surtur Rising" album in its entirety while the second will offer up mixed bag of tunes from their extensive catalog.

TMC Cool sh!t bro!! It'd be kick a$$ to be in a music vid. This was a sick vid too. I don't know why I don't have this album on actual cd yet. I need to get it.

That's awesome, TheMidnightCowboy. I love this song, and even more live as it's a nice pickup in tempo from the rest of the album/set.
