Live Music – Amon Amarth @ The Paramount

While I may have missed the chance of shooting them at 2013’s Mayhem Festival, no better how bad the ice, snow, and wind was this winter night, I was not about to miss the mighty viking kings, Amon Amarth.  After a sold out show in New York City, they traveled a few minutes east to The Paramount in Huntington, New York.  I was luckily there to catch them for this great show…

Notes:

Maybe its because I grew up listening to heavy metal (Iron Maiden and In Flames were my dishes of choice throughout high school) but there is something that really kicks just right for me.  And Amon Amarth sounded just awesome.

Blasting out songs with a heavy theme based around Norse Mythology and Vikings, Amon Amarth had a ton of energy.  Add that with some cool lighting that changed from song to song, including some creepy looking glows at the front of the stage for the second song, and you have a recipe for a great band to shoot.

Also, while I wasn’t able to get any photos of it, during one of the slower and super heavy songs, a group of people in the mosh pit formed a “viking row boat” right in the middle of the floor!  THAT was pretty metal.
