Swedish heavy metal leviathans Amon Amarth have premiered their new special-guest bursting video for 'Raise Your Horns'. Featuring members of Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, Black Label Society and more, the release of the flick coincides with launch of a celebratory Grimfrost competition.
After headlining a North American tour earlier this year, and appearing at festivals across Europe all summer, the new video - which can be viewed below - features live footage from the extensive run; including shots from the San Diego, London, Paris, Tilburg, Berlin, and Hellfest shows, as well as clips of fans, artists, actors, sports stars, and friends raising their own horns to the band.
In other Amon Amarth news, starting today, fans have the chance to win a Grimfrost prize pack, including their own carefully polished and cleaned top quality Viking drinking horn (which holds 4 litres, 8 pints or 128 oz)! The grand prize winner will also receive a Berserker t-shirt, Heathen t-shirt and a stainless steel Wolf King Chain with Grimfrost’s Thor’s Hammer necklace, all featured in the photo below. Presented by Amon Amarth in partnership with Grimfrost, the contest is open to the global public, and ends on October 10th @ 5pm UK time.
