Amon Amarth released their 10th full-length, Jomsviking, earlier this year. As the band's first concept record in their storied career, Jomsviking tells a tragic, original tale of conflict and revenge, backed by the Swedes' trademark melodic, anthemic metal - which was produced and mixed once again by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Accept). For their efforts, Amon Amarth swept into some of their highest chart positions to date across the globe (including a #11 spot on the USA Current Album Billboard Chart). To purchase and preview Jomsviking, please visit amonamarth.com, where the album is available in various formats, and previous videos for "At Dawn's First Light" and "First Kill" can be viewed.
