Amon Amarth have confirmed that they have finished work on their new album. The band recorded the effort at Sphere Studios in Los Angeles, CA with producer Jay Ruston and a spring release is expected.
Johan Hegg told Revolver the following about the album:
“With the last record, ‘Jomsviking‘, I wrote a complete fucking movie script and we turned it into an album. This time around, I didn’t have any of those ideas but we also didn’t want to do a concept thing, either.
‘Jomsviking‘ turned out so well, so if you then start working on another concept album and try to top that, it would almost be impossible — unless you have a really great story lined up that you can do that with.
But I didn’t, so it didn’t make sense. I was a bit lazy on this one — I waited for the music to be done so I could see where it would take me.”
