If you love death metal, then the news that Amon Amarth will embark on a headlining North American tour with Carcass, Obituary and Cattle Decapitation may be the most exciting thing you see all week.

The viking obsessives will drop The Great Heathen Army, the successor to 2019's Berserker, on Aug. 5 and just over three months later, they'll head out on a 27-date tour that will criss-cross the United States, with two stops in Canada on the books as well.

“North America, the Great Heathen Army is coming for you this Fall! We have been away for a long time and now we return to raid with the death metal event of the year! We will be sacking cities across the continent with our good friends Carcass, Obituary and Cattle Decapitation. We intend to bring a big show and give you a night that you won’t easily forget. Miss this at your own peril," comments Amon Amarth on the upcoming run.

Carcass vocalist/bassist Jeff Walker adds, "Carcass are looking forward to its first proper U.S. tour for...six years??? Can It really be that long??? We can’t think of a stronger tour or killer line up for us to be part of......it’s gonna be a RAGER!”

Death metal groove mongers Obituary offer, "We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this tour! When we got word that our good friends Amon Amarth asked for Obituary to join them here in North America, there was no hesitation, just an immediate yes! We are honored to share the stage and some cold beers with them again along with our longtime friends Carcass and San Diego brothers Cattle Decapitation! If this lineup doesn’t get you excited, check your pulse cause you may be dead!”

"We are thrilled to get back out on the road in the U.S. and especially with such a stacked lineup! It’s going to be a killer run and an honor to perform every night alongside these legends," Cattle Decapitation exclaim.
