This time next week, our intrepid representatives at Hammerfest IV – The Hammer of Thor, will be slowly trying to recover from a weekend where the level of attention paid to the many heavy metal bands playing is directly (and inversely) proportional to the levels of booze being imbibed by them. How do we know they’ll be getting smashed rather than getting their mosh on? Well, because even if you headline your event with Anthrax and Skindred, we know for a fact that whenever more than one Thrash Hits contributor ends up in the same room at Pontin’s in Prestatyn, someone ends up puking. That’s not us trying to sound like a bunch of lads-on-tour kerrrrayyyzzzyy drunks either – that’s the raw statistics of Hammerfest talking.

In any case, we figured we’d put together a Hammerfest-themed Spotify Slaylist to start getting them in the mood nice and early.

You imagine Amon Amarth must have approached album number eight in something of a quandary. Eclipsing Twilight Of The Thunder God seemed an unlikely prospect, given that record was as catchy and riff-laden as was it. Maybe that’s why Surtur Rising at first seems a little disappointing – this is a slightly different Amon Amarth to what we’re used to.

December 10th, 2008

With their Viking drinking horns on their hips and majestic melodic metal walloping our ears, Amon Amarth were a definite highlight of the Unholy Alliance III tour. Drummer, Fredrik Andersson talks us through his year.
