Dark Tranquillity vs. Amon Amarth – Death Match
The mighty Dark Tranquillity have won yet another Death Match, this time against Finnish metal giant Children of Bodom. Dark Tranquillity and their new track ‘For Broken Words’ are only two wins away from claiming a spot in our Death Match Hall of Fame, but in this next battle they’ll have to face a fellow band of mighty Swedes.
Swedish melodic viking metal band Amon Amarth, much like Dark Tranquillity, hail from Sweden and have become one of underground metal’s most celebrated acts throughout their 20-year history. Amon Amarth enter the Death Match with the title track from their upcoming ninth studio album, ‘Deceiver of the Gods.’
