There are music videos, and then there are music videos. There are metal artists out there including the likes of Behemoth who have become renown for stunning and at times disturbing visual masterpieces with their music videos. They may all have to go back to the drawing board after this because the viking metal heroes that are Amon Amarth have set some new standards for metal music videos with this absolutely stunning epic mini movie of a music video for their new single Father Of The Wolf. Clocking in at nearly ten minutes, the video, directed by Ramon Boutviseth and with Metal Blade head honcho Brian Slagel among it’s executive producers must literally be seen to be believed. We’re going to shut up now and let you get on with watching the epicness that is the video for Father Of The Wolf:
