Amon Amarth Video
The video for their track ‘The Pursuit of Vikings’, from their Metal Blade album ‘Fate of Norns’ can be watched here.
Directed by Philipp Hirsch and Heiko Tippelt, the two, “brought in some great ideas and did an awesome job in filming and editing the clip as well,” according to the band’s recent press release. “We recorded the video in an old abandoned railway house in Bischofswerda, close to Dresden, Germany,” said Amon Amarth’s Johan Hegg. “We got to work a lot with pyrotechnics, and using that indoors of course created a lot of soot, so we were blowing black snot out of our noses for about four days afterwards. The recording took all day, about ten hours all in all, and after that we were supposed to perform on stage for 90 minutes. Needless to say, we were all pretty damn tired after that day, but in the end it was all worth it. The video turned out great in my opinion, and the film team really managed to capture the mood of the song in the video.”
