Amon Amarth Releases Concept Album

Amon Amarth: JomsvikingSwedish death metal band Amon Amarth has released its 10th studio effort, Jomsviking, named after a legendary order of viking mercenaries.

Ted Lundström handles bass on the album, as he has throughout the band’s recording career. While Jomsviking, which tells a story set in the mercenaries’ world, is the band’s first concept album, it remains in familiar territory for the group, which often writes about Viking themes.

Jomsviking is available on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
