The Swedish heavy metal Vikings from Amon Amarth have announced the remaining dates of their massive European "Jomsviking" tour with new shows added in Sweden, Spain, Czech Republic & Hungary.

Joining as special guest in the UK, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Spain and Portugal is the legendary Bay Area group Testament.

Testament's Eric Peterson comments: “With a heart of steel and rippling distant thunder, we are honoured to board the AA Viking ship and get ready to feast and plunder with them across Europe! Thor's hammering strikes shall lead the way! Skol!”

Poland’s Behemoth will be joining Amon Amarth for dates in Norway, Sweden, Finland & Denmark. Behemoth's Nergal states: “The last and only time we toured with Amon Amarth was over a decade ago when both our bands were conquering North America in a small shitty van. We are in a different place now and we are more then honoured to be sharing the stage with those Norse men again! Scandinavia, you have been warned!”

Also joining as support on all shows is Sweden’s epic Grand Magus. JB from Grand Magus declares, "Warriors of the north Atlantic! We are proud and excited to be part of this tour. Earth-shattering metal is coming your way. Amon Amarth, Testament/Behemoth, and Grand Magus on the same night! There will be headbanging, thrashing, and all around heaviness to fill all needs. Join us! Rejoice!”
