AMON AMARTH released their tenth full-length, Jomsviking, earlier this year. 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 et al). For their efforts, AMON AMARTH 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 album 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.” – MetalSucks

“This latest venture through Norse mythology and barbaric fantasy is likely to go down as an instant fan favorite.” – Blabbermouth

“…the Swedish outfit has returned with a concept record of epic proportions.” – PopMatters

“After all the best axes are still being forged by the master!” – Metal Hammer (DE)    
“…you are left with no doubt that Amon Amarth are at the top of their game right now. This is splendid.”Powerplay

“This album is a genuinely impressive piece of work. Whether you like Vikings or not, this is a brilliant death metal record from a brilliant death metal band.”
