What do you get when you cross Amon Amarth with a packed Halloween show? A rowdy crowd of insane metalheads dressed like Vikings!

Swedish, melodic, death metal veteran, Amon Amarth, tore through the Royal Oak Music Theater in Detroit on Halloween. The five-piece group from Tumba, Sweden has released nine studio albums and an EP since their formation in 1992. With lyrical content containing viking and mythological references, Amon Amarth is the quintessential viking metal band.

Providing support was fellow Swedish power band, Sabaton. Sabaton has released seven studio albums since their inception in 1999. With lyrical themes heavily focused on World War I and II, Sabaton perfectly complemented Amon Amarth on this tour.

Skeletonwitch were without their singer on this date but they provided an opening instrumental set that had the crowd riled up early on.

Our photographer, Josh Kahl, was on hand to capture the action.
