AMON AMARTH ‘Slaves Of Fear’ Worldwide track premiere via Decibel Magazine’s Deciblog!
Johan Hegg talks to Metal Blade TV about the concepts behind the band’s upcoming Surtur Rising full-length!

Today Decible Magazine’s mighty Deciblog premieres Slaves Of Fear, the fourth track off AMON AMARTH‘s eagerly anticipated new full-length Surtur Rising. Scheduled for European release via Metal Blade on March 25/28, 2011, the record marks the eighth studio offering from the kings of epic, melodic death metal.

Slaves Of Fear is song number 4 on the album and it’s not the all-typical AMON AMARTH song. "It was one of the last songs we finished for the album and I think it adds some diversity by being a bit different", comments drummer Fredrik Andersson. "What makes this song a little bit different I think is the collaboration between me and Olavi as song writers, usually most songs are written by Olavi/Johan S. It’s definitely one of the darkest songs we’ve ever written and the main/intro riff is my personal tribute to the passing of Ronnie James Dio as the riff came to me after listening to "Holy Diver". Lyrically it’s about how religions keeps people under its control and keeps people from thinking for themselves. One of the most angry lyrics Johan has written and they kind of reminds me of "The sound of eight hooves" in a way. It works exceptionally well with the melancholic feel of the riffs."
