  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • Surtur is an evil giant of Norse mythology, and when he rises, it leads to all kinds of hell and unrest. In his Songfacts interview, Amon Amarth lead singer Johan Hegg said: "'Destroyer of the Universe' is also a story about the end of the world, where a fire giant, Surtur, arises, and he is the one that brings the end to everything by spreading his lethal fire across the universe. Everything is consumed."
