If you’re a metalhead and you haven’t heard of Sweden’s greatest export, Amon Amarth, perhaps it may be time to revisit your collection. Since 1992, singer/growler Johan Hegg and company have been churning out death metal with a slight melodic twist. Their latest, Surtur Rising, was released this year to the delight of die-hards across the globe and, as luck would have it, they’ve decided to tour the states sans any shitty support acts. If you’ve been waiting to hear the band stretch out, this is the chance. Play some songs off 1999’s The Avenger for me, please. 1417 R Street,
