California-based road warriors EXMORTUS — whose new album, “Ride Forth,” just debuted at #12 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart — will continue to showcase their “neoclassical Euro-shred” (Revolver) on a just-announced North American spring tour supporting viking legends Amon Amarth.
Frontman Conan proclaimed, “I am beyond stoked to tour alongside such renowned viking warriors! Always loved their work and image. Amon Amarth is the elvish name of Mount Doom in Lord of the Rings and I’m a huge Tolkien fan, so I’m sure we’ll get along great.”
General admission tickets will go on sale Friday, Jan. 29 at 10 a.m. local time. Visit www.exmortusmusic.com for further details.
Recorded with producer Zack Ohren (Immolation, Suffocation) — with whom EXMORTUS previously collaborated on their stunning 2014 Prosthetic debut “Slave To The Sword” — “Ride Forth” features nine tracks praised by MetalSucks for their “irresistible mix of thrash, death metal and shred.” Stream the album in full via Spotify HERE before picking up a copy on CD or LP from the Prosthetic webshop or as a digital download via Amazon,iTunes or Bandcamp.
EXMORTUS are currently on a nationwide tour alongside Enforcer, Warbringer and Cauldron, which will last until late Februrary. Dates can be found below.
