Amon Amarth’s Metal Crushes All Tour Crashed into the House of Blues for an Exhilarating Night of Metal


Amon Amarth’s Metal Crushes All Tour, featuring the formidable metal gods of Cannibal Corpse, Obituary, and Frozen Soul, stood as a monumental celebration of the enduring spirit of metal as it filled a packed House of Blues. From the very inception of the night, as Frozen Soul ignited the stage with their unbridled energy, to the resounding echoes of Amon Amarth’s final chords, the event unfolded as a symphony of unyielding musical prowess.

Frozen Soul, with their unapologetic embrace of old-school death metal power chords and riffs, set the stage ablaze with ferocious roars that electrified the crowd from the outset. Their relentless aggression and raw energy acted as a potent catalyst, igniting a frenzy of headbanging and moshing, laying a solid foundation for the onslaught of metal that would fill the House of Blues for the rest of the evening.

As Obituary took their rightful place under the spotlight, their legendary status immediately manifested in the air. With each thunderous riff and bone-crushing groove, they delved deep into the raw riffs of death metal that they had become known for, invoking a primal stage presence that transported the audience to the very birth of the genre. Their performance was a testament to their enduring legacy and unwavering dedication to their craft.

Next in line, Cannibal Corpse emerged with the seasoned expertise of true veterans. Their stage presence exuded an aura of command and authority, matched only by the technical proficiency and sheer intensity of their performance. With lead man Corpsegrinder thrashing about on stage, convincing the crowd to mosh and crowd surf for the entire set, the venue was rowdier than ever.  With a setlist that spanned the breadth of their illustrious career, they delivered a masterclass in extreme metal, leaving no doubt as to why they are considered pioneers of the genre.

And then, amidst a crescendo of anticipation, Amon Amarth, the viking conquerors themselves, took center stage. With their epic tales of Norse mythology and anthemic melodies, they embarked on a journey that transcended mere musical performance. From the thunderous rhythms of “Twilight of the Thunder God” to the soaring choruses of “Guardians of Asgaard,” each note reverberated with an unparalleled grandeur, captivating the audience and transporting them to realms of ancient legend. The true spectacle was when the entire floor of the House of Blues sat down to create a row pit for the epic “Put Your Back into the Oar”.

In the grand tapestry of metal history, the Amon Amarth Metal Crushes All Tour, with its epic supporting acts, will undoubtedly occupy a hallowed place. It was not merely a night of music but a collective ode to the undying spirit of metal, a testament to its enduring power to unite and exhilarate across generations. As the final echoes of the last chord faded into the night, the memories of this epic journey lingered on, etched forever in the annals of metal lore.
