AMON AMARTH will be touring in support of their recently released Jomsviking full-length. As the band’s first concept record in their storied career, Jomsviking – which was produced and mixed again by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Accept) – tells a tragic, original tale of conflict and revenge, backed by the Swedes’ trademark melodic, anthemic Metal. The record landed on the global charts – including a #11 spot on the US Current Album Billboard Chart! To purchase and preview Jomsviking, visit amonamarth.com, where the record is available in various formats and the videos for “At Dawn’s First Light” and “First Kill” can be viewed.
“Jomsviking is sure to satisfy AMON AMARTH fans old and new and sure to rip the face off of any who are not ready. 4.5/5″ – MetalSucks
“This latest venture through Norse mythology and barbaric fantasy is likely to go down as an instant fan favorite.8.5/10” – Blabbermouth
“After all the best axes are still being forged by the master!” – Metal Hammer (Germany)
