AMON AMARTH Streams “Get In The Ring” and Announces a New Death Metal-Inspired Album

Amon Amarth is back with a ferocious new single titled “Get In The Ring” and the announcement of their forthcoming album The Great Heathen Army. The single was written for AEW professional wrestler Erick Redbeard, who also appears in the music video. According to the band, The Great Heathen Army album was recorded with Andy Sneap (Judas Priest, Dream Theater, Killswitch Engage) and is one of their heaviest releases.

Overall, The Great Heathen Army is one of our heaviest albums, according to lead singer Johan Hegg. “There are some dark and heavy songs that are extremely aggressive and powerful, but there are also some melodic Amon Amarth songs, as well as a few surprises. This album is extremely well-balanced. It sounds fantastic. Andy Sneap is incredible. It was a pleasure to work with him once more.” “We’ve been away creating new music, and now we’re back with a new album that sounds darker and more death metal,” clarified guitarist Olavi Mikkonen. “The Great Heathen Army is our ‘death metal’ album, whereas Berserker was our ‘heavy metal’ album. But despite this, it’s still very much contemporary Amon Amarth, albeit with a bit of a throwback in terms of style.” The Great Heathen Army is available for pre-order here and will be released on August 5. Amon Amarth will also tour Europe with Machine Head and The Halo Effect later this year. Get the dates listed below.
