Comments Amon Amarth’s Johan Hegg: “Get ready Europe ’cause we are going on our first head-line tour in about two years, supporting our new album ‘Deceiver of the Gods’! We’re extremely proud to announce Death Metal legends CARCASS as main support, and Britain’s most splendid madmen in HELL as opening act! It’s time to burn, pillage and plunder across Europe with the most crushing tour package ever!”
CARCASS’s Jeff Walker comments, “CARCASS is extremely flattered & honoured having been press ganged by invitation into thralldom supporting everyone’s favourite Nordic Musical Corsairs AMON AMARTH. Lock up your daughters, your mothers, your grandmothers and in the case of CARCASS your dead grandmothers – this tour is coming to rape & pillage your hearing…and leave you in the morning having made you breakfast in bed.”
