Swedish Viking metal band AMON AMARTH has announced re-issues of their first four albums to appear in 2009. The series will kick off with "Once Sent From The Golden Hall," which will be released as a double-popup-digipak featuring two discs. Disc one features the entire "Once Sent From The Golden Hall" album remastered plus the bonustrack "Siegreicher Marsch" (German version of "Victorious March"). Disc two features the live recording of the show AMON AMARTH played on the 28th of December, 2008 in Bochum, Germany where they played the album in its entirety. The order of songs is the same as on disc one (excluding "Siegreicher Marsch").

This re-issue (and all the ones to follow during 2009) will be released as an 8-sided Double-Digipak with individual pop-up. All four pop-ups attached to each other will show a special three-dimensional picture. The re-issue also features liner notes by the band and will be released for the price of a regular CD.

The tracklisting for "Once Sent From The Golden Hall" is as follows:

1. Ride For Vengeance
2. The Dragons’ Flight Across The Waves
3. Without Fear 4. Victorious March
5. Friends Of The Suncross
6. Abandoned
7. Amon Amarth
8. Once Sent From The Golden Hall
9. Siegreicher Marsch (German version of Victorious March)

The 2-disc re-issue of "Once Sent From The Golden Hall" will be released the 27th of February in D/A/CH/I and the March 2nd in the rest of Europe.
