Amon Amarth at The Paramount earlier this year (more by Greg Cristman)

In what feels a little like deja-vu, Swedish viking metal band Amon Amarth is heading back to North America for round two of the Deceiver of the Gods tour bringing fellow Swedish power metal band Sabaton and Ohio thrashers Skeletonwitch (again) with them. The tour is a decently long one and lands in NYC on October 18 at Best Buy Theater. All dates are listed below.

That NYC show is also a special one -- it's a gig to celebrate Decibel Magazine's 10th anniversary, and for this show Skeletonwitch will be replaced by death/doom supergroup Vallenfyre. Vallenfyre contains members of At the Gates (who just played Maryland Deathfest and Invisible Oranges interviewed), Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride (also played MDF) and Extinction of Mankind (played MDF, are playing NYC tonight 5/29) and, counting CVs, many more notable bands. Vallenfyre just released a Decibel flexi, and the show will be Vallenfyre's first (and only one currently scheduled) in North America. Tickets for the NYC show go on presale today at 10 AM: password = METAL.  Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Friday (5/30) at noon.

Those hoping to catch Skeletonwitch in NYC aren't out of luck. At Saint Vitus the same night (10/18), Skeletonwitch will be playing Saint Vitus with Evoken and a special guest. That show is also in celebration of Decibel's ten years, and tickets go on sale on Friday (5/30) at noon.

Pretty good night to be a metalhead in NYC. All tour dates are listed below...
