Snap Scene: Amon Amarth, Knotfest, Flemington Racecourse, 24th Mar 2023 by Mary Boukouvalas

Amon Amarth is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Tumba, formed in 1992. The band takes its name from the Sindarin name of Mount Doom, a volcano in J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth. Their lyrics mostly deal with Viking mythology and history, and so they have been sometimes erroneously labeled “Viking metal”, although the band insists they play melodic death metal.
