Amon Amarth graces cover of Decibel Magazine

This Friday, Swedish metal kings Amon Amarth will unleash their 10th studio album, Jomsviking, via Metal Blade Records/Sony Music. Jomsviking is the band’s first concept record in their storied career. It 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) and also includes guest session drummer Tobias Gustafsson (Vomitory). For an exclusive interview about the album, be sure to pick up the latest issue of Decibel Magazine, which features Amon Amarth’s front-man, Johan Hegg, on the cover.

For a behind-the-scenes look at the making of JomsvikingAmon Amarth has launched several videos online, including two Q&A segments with Johan Hegg. To watch these, and other videos, be sure to head over to Amon Amarth’s YouTube Page
