I think Amon Amarth are pretty much the best band in the world right now. Their newest video, however, scores pretty high on the Manchego meter:
Guardians Of Asgaard ft. LG Petrov
I think the "making of" teaser raised my hopes a little bit too much, but I should have seen the tell tale signs. Having L.G. Petrov in your video gives you old school death metal street cred, but the guy just looks completely out of place with Amon Amarth's Viking shtick. The pose is all wrong, and his facial expressions look pained instead of fierce. He also apparently doesn't really know how to headbang. Oh well.
This is the first time Amon Amarth have crossed the mythological line and tried to show an actual Jötunn in one of their videos. It doesn't really work. The guy looks like a leprous orc from Middle Earth .
At the very least, this video will add some fuel to the wonderful "Vikings vs. Barbarians" discussion over at Metal Inquisition.
I'll just go back to watching the video for "Twilight of the Thunder God," which may be one of the best metal videos of all time:
