Amon Amarth will be touring in support of their recently released new album, Jomsviking. As the band’s first concept record in their storied career, Jomsviking tells a tragic, original tale of conflict and revenge, backed by the Swedes’ trademark melodic, anthemic metal – which was produced and mixed once again by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Accept). For their efforts, Amon Amarth landed on the global charts (including a #11 spot on the USA Current Album Billboard Chart!). To purchase and preview Jomsviking, please visit the bands website, where the record is available in various formats, and the videos for “At Dawn’s First Light” and “First Kill” can be viewed.
