Amon Amarth has issued the following announcement about working on a new album:

"A new beginning! The last couple of months we have been busy working on our follow up to 'Twilight of the Thunder God.' Ten songs were written and on October 1 we started tracking drums for the album in Park Studios. After a short trip to Tokyo, which included our first ever show in Japan at the renowned Loud Park festival, we continued tracking bass and guitars at Fascination Street studios. Recordings have been going well and we are now more than half-way through and the album starts to take shape. We'll keep you updated with more info soon! For now we can confirm some shows in the UK as part as the 'Defenders of the faith 2011' tour with Children of Bodom."

The dates are as follows:

4/01 - UEA - Norwich, UK
4/02 - Academy 1 - Manchester, UK
4/03 - ABC - Glasgow, UK
4/05 - Vicar Street - Dublin, Ireland
4/07 - Rock City - Nottingham, UK
4/08 - Academy - Birmingham, UK
4/09 - Forum - London, UK

I dont think them at all anymore, theyre last two albums were so incredibly disappointing and week. "Versus the World" and "Fate Of Norns" will remain the two best from these guys, they were just so raw and evil sounding.

TAG - TOTTG might not have been their best effort (just a couple of anthem tracks), but I though WOOOS was top notch overall.
