Amon Amarth announce new album “The Great Heathen Army”

The kings of Viking heavy metal, Amon Amarth, have announced their twelfth studio album, “The Great Heathen Army”. The 9-track aural assault will be released on Friday, August 5th, 2022 via Metal Blade Records.

The announcement is highlighted by the release of brand new track and accompanying music video, “Get In The Ring” which was written for AEW pro-wrestling star Erick Redbeard, who also stars in the music video. Watch the video here:

Vocalist Johan Hegg comments: “Overall “The Great Heathen Army” is one of the heavier albums we’ve made. There are some dark and heavy songs that are really powerful and in-your-face, but we obviously have some trademark melodic Amon Amarth songs on there as well, and a few surprises too. It’s a really well-balanced album. It sounds great. Andy Sneap is awesome. It was great to be able to work with him again.

Guitarist Olavi Mikkonen adds: “We’ve been away making new music and we’re back with new darker, more death-metal sounding album. If “Berserker” was our ‘heavy metal’ album, then “The Great Heathen Army” is our ‘death metal’ album. But with that said, it’s still very much contemporary Amon Amarth, but perhaps style-wise we have gone back to our roots a little bit.

Album pre-orders are available now at THIS LOCATION, and feature a host of exclusive vinyl variants and must-have merch items for any self-respecting Amon Amarth fan.
