“For me, this is Amon Amarth 2.0. I think what we’ve done here is give ourselves the space to explore other parts of our musicality and who we are as a band. If you’re content with where you’re at, what’s the point of continuing? We always want to come up with new ideas and find new ways of doing things and to create bigger and better shows and really try to improve every aspect of what the band is. We want to try to keep growing and to do this for as long as we have the possibility to do so, because this is the best fucking job in the world.”

Amon Amarth Finish Work On New Album

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.”
