Amon Amarth Details Their "Jomsviking" Concept Album, Announces A North American Tour, And Releases The "First Kill" Video!

Amon Amarth has been teasing us for weeks, including an awesome clip featuring Josh Barnett, and now we know why! The Swedish metal giants have just revealed that their new album, “Jomsviking“, will be hitting stores on March 25th via Metal Blade Records, and that not’s all! This will be their first concept album EVER! Johan Hegg explains the story: “The Jomsvikings were a shadowy and legendary sect of Viking mercenaries, as shrouded in myth now as they were when they fought across Europe and the Middle East. Ruthless and deadly warriors who fought for the highest bidder, their code was simple: Show no fear. Never retreat. Defend your brothers, and when called upon, avenge their deaths. I felt we were finally ready to use their story as the jumping off point for an Amon Amarth album. The Jomsvikings and their world is the background for the story of a young man that is in love with a girl but unfortunately she’s being married off. He accidentally kills a man when this happens and he has to flee – but he swears to have revenge and win her back. He can’t let go of the past. He feels that he’s been wronged and his life has been destroyed. The way the story evolves is not a happy story.
