Viking metal band Amon Amarth have dropped their new music video recently. You can watch the music video for their song “Shield Wall” below. The song is from the band’s latest album Berserker.
The press release explains the concept of the video:
Directed by Phil Wallis and produced by Alexander Milas/Twin V Ltd – the same team behind Amon Amarth‘s 2018 feature-length documentary The Pursuit of Vikings – the aim of Shield Wall was to produce a historically accurate portrayal of the battlefield tactics that Vikings were known and also notorious for.
Working closely with noted Viking scholar and battle reenactor Igor Górewicz of the Triglav and Jomsborg vikings, the video was shot on location in Wolin, Poland – site of the world-renowned annual Festival of Slavs and Vikings – and featured extras from the worlds’ foremost Viking reenactment groups, including Triglav, Maximas von Bracey’s Ulflag and Germany’s Blóðvítnir, longtime friends of Amon Amarth whose longtime member Sana portrays the story’s raiding party commander.
