AMON AMARTH Teases New Single/Video ‘Put Your Back Into The Oar’
Sweden’s celebrated Viking overlords and undisputed modern masters of epic heavy metal AMON AMARTH will release a new single and video, «Put Your Back Into The Oar», this Thursday, February 17. A teaser for the clip is available below.
AMON AMARTH will team up with MACHINE HEAD for the «Vikings And Lionhearts» co-headlining European arena tour in September and October.
AMON AMARTH‘s latest album, «Berserker», was released in May 2019 via Metal Blade Records. The disc was recorded at Sphere Studios in North Hollywood, California with producer Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with ANTHRAX, STEEL PANTHER, URIAH HEEP and STONE SOUR.
AMON AMARTH enlisted a session drummer, Tobias Gustafsson (VOMITORY, CUT UP), during the recording sessions for 2016’s «Jomsviking», following the departure of longtime drummer Fredrik Andersson. The band tapped OCTOBER TIDE drummer Jocke Wallgren as Andersson‘s permanent replacement six years ago.
AMON AMARTH stands tall and unassailable: 30 years into a career that has seen them evolve from humble origins in the dark, dank rehearsal rooms of their native Tumba to their current status as explosive festival headliners and one of the metal world’s most widely adored bands.
Formed in 1992, AMON AMARTH became modern metal greats the hard way. Ruthlessly dedicated to creating new music and taking it out on the road, the Swedes steadily built a formidable reputation as a ferocious live band and, as the years passed, were increasingly recognized for their recorded achievements too. Since the dawn of the millennium, AMON AMARTH has been unstoppable.
Breakthrough releases like 2006’s «With Oden On Our Side» and its now-legendary follow-up, 2008’s «Twilight Of The Thunder God» further cemented their popularity throughout the metal world, while the band’s stage show evolved with each successive tour, transforming into one of modern metal’s truly great spectacles. «Berserker» brought with it an epic, history-making trek across North America with fellow Swedes ARCH ENEMY, AT THE GATES and GRAND MAGUS and saw multiple sell-outs.
