France's Metal Sickness last month conducted an interview with vocalist Johan Hegg of Swedish melodic death metal tyrants AMON AMARTH. You can now watch the chat below.
A track-by-track review of b>"Surtur Rising", the eighth studio album from AMON AMARTH, can be found at RadioMetal.com. Named in tribute to Surtur, leader of the fire giants of Muspelheim ("flame land") and the oldest being in the nine worlds of Norse mythology, the record, which is due in North America on March 29 via Metal Blade Records, features 10 tracks of sword-wielding, fist-pumping, hyper climactic battle anthems. The follow-up to 2008's monolithic "Twilight Of The Thunder God" full-length was recorded again at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren and features strikingly brutal cover art by Tom Thiel.
The official album landing page can be acccessed at this location. The new web site, dedicated exclusively to "Surtur Rising", includes album pre-orders for North America and Europe as well as up-to-the-minute news updates, tour announcements, videos and singles leading up to the record's release.
