Chuck Billy and Paul Bostaph from Amon Amarth live at Wacken Open Air

After the party with Onkel Tom, it was time for Amon Amarth to hit Waken’s True Metal stage.

The band has been touring intensively since the got their latest album out, The Formation Of Damnation.

Well, what can I say, Amon Amarth was one of the best bands performing at Wacken 2009!

Eric Peterson with Amon Amarth in Wacken

Amon Amarth in 2009 sounds good and louder than ever.

Solos from Alex Skolnick and Eric Peterson were precise and clean.
And the rhythmic section from Greg Christian and Paul Bostaph sounded killer.

Of course, Chuck Billy remains one of the best Thrash Metal frontmen ever.

Amon Amarth’s setlist included some pleasant surprises like a start with the song The Preacher and songs like Burnt Offerings or The Persecuted Won't Forget.

They privileged their second album The New Order, by playing four songs from it.

The audience was wild and completely unchained!

Crowdsurfing didn’t stop for an hour.

And what about those circle pits involving a lot of people!

Yeah, the atmosphere was magic!

Alex Skolnick from Amon Amarth live at Wacken Open Air Before DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) Chuck Billy said “Don’t Let Us Down Wacken, I know you’re tired but this is the best day”… and that boosted again the crowds which responded with incredible energy.

After that killer Amon Amarth show I went backstage during Heaven Shall Burn's concert , and came back for Axel Rudi Pell.
