Amon Amarth To Release New Album In August

Undisputed kings of Viking heavy metal, Amon Amarth, have announced their twelfth studio album, "The Great Heathen Army." The 9-track aural assault will be released on August 5 via Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders available now with the first 1000 orders at the band's European Victorious Merch store receiving a free signed poster.

Today's announcement is highlighted by the release of brand new track and accompanying music video, "Get In The Ring", which was written for AEW pro-wrestling star Erick Redbeard, who also stars in the music video. Stream the track here and watch the video below.

Speaking on the announcement of their new album, Amon Amarth vocalist Johan Hegg shares: "Overall, The Great Heathen Army is one of the heavier albums we've made. There are some dark and heavy songs that are really powerful and in-your-face, but we obviously have some trademark melodic Amon Amarth songs on there as well, and a few surprises too. It's a really well-balanced album. It sounds great. Andy Sneap is awesome. It was great to be able to work with him again."

Gutiarist Olavi Mikkonen adds: "We've been away making new music and we're back with new darker, more death-metal sounding album. If Berserker was our 'heavy metal' album, then The Great Heathen Army is our 'death metal' album. But with that said, it's still very much contemporary Amon Amarth, but perhaps style-wise we have gone back to our roots a little bit." More...
