Amon Amarth premieres video for “At Dawn’s First Light”

Amon Amarth will unleash their 10th studio album, Jomsviking, via Metal Blade Records (North America)/Sony Music (International)! Jomsviking – the band’s first concept record in their storied career – 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 features special guest session drummer Tobias Gustafsson (Vomitory). For a preview of Jomsviking, watch the video for “At Dawns First Light” below.

Produced by Rafal Szermanowkicz/Grupa 13  and directed by Darek Szermanowicz (Behemoth), “At Dawn’s First Light” is set in an epic battle scene in a Slavic settlement from the 9th-10th century  – with the band caught in the middle of the bloody fight! The video features an appearance by the modern Viking warriors known as the Triglav Jomsborg East Storm who are lead by the ruthless and energetic fight director Igor Gorewicz.

Leading up to Jomsviking‘s release,you can visit the bands WebSite for a more in-depth look into the album, where a special digital picture book campaign has been launched. Each day (through March 24th), a new track page will be revealed, featuring lyrics, booklet images, and 30-second song clips.
