Amon Amarth

Amon Amarth, Tyr, Holy Grail, Pandah 

When: Tue., April 27, 6 p.m. 2010
Price: $22–$25

If the unequivocally tuneful and triumphant death metal Swedes Amon Amarth were chess pieces, they'd be a row of rooks, resilient and ready to knock opponents from their blocks by forceful moves to the front and sides. Indeed, for the last 20 years, the quintet's written songs of conquest culled from its native histories—in 2006, they exclaimed, "With Oden on our side/ We are victorious"; in 2008, they proclaimed, "We're the guardians/ Guardians of Asgaard/ We have faced our enemies/ A thousand times or even more." With all the talk of death and dominance, the structural sturdiness of these songs—melodic and meticulous, with parts that interlock like pieces of armor—will have you chanting, quite literally, for enemy blood. With Tyr, Holy Grail and Pandah, this turns into a massacre. —Grayson Currin
