Amon Amarth – Live in Toronto – December 2022

The Great Heathen Tour saw Viking metal legends Amon Amarth joined by death metal giants Carcass, Obituary and Cattle Decapitation for a North American tour of epic proportions.

Belatedly, here are some captures of the tour’s stop in Toronto at the east-end venue History, by guest photographer Keith Ibbitson of Lower Eastside Photography.  Follow Keith on Instagram : @metal_paparazzi_66

Amon Amarth will continue touring in 2023 with a slew of dates in Europe, including appearances at Graspop and Hellfest, taking a short break before returning to the US in August.  More info and all upcoming tour dates via their official website:

Great Heathen Tour

In case you missed this whammy of a tour, (and you slept on the recent return of CARCASS) you can make up for it in part by catching OBITUARY at the Phoenix on Sunday May 7th.  Obituary  released their latest full-length, “Dying of Everything”, in January.  Support will be provided by New York death metal greats Immolation, Colorado’s Blood Incantation, & Idaho hardcore punks Ingrown.

More info and tickets for Obituary’s May 7th show here via Inertia Entertainment.

CATTLE DECAPITATION are also making another stop in Toronto as part of the Decibel Magazine Tour on Saturday, May 27th.  That one will be hot on the heels of their upcoming release, “Terrasite”, coming out on May 12th.  The Decibel Magazine Tour this year is headlined by DARK FUNERAL, with additional support from 200 Stab Wounds and Blackbraid.
