Amon Amarth Celebrates 25 Years with Documentary and Live Album

Amon Amarth: The Pursuit Of Vikings: 25 Years In The Eye Of The StormThe metal warriors in Amon Amarth have been crossing the globe for two and a half decades. To celebrate the milestone, they’ve released a new documentary and live album called The Pursuit Of Vikings: 25 Years In The Eye Of The Storm.

“This film tells the Swedish quintet’s history, through both their own eyes and those of the fans that have supported them along the way,” label Metal Blade writes. “It is a thrilling collection that pays respect to the faithful, as well as making for a detailed and riveting introduction for those new to their inspiring story. Paired with this documentary is the live video/audio, which contains two different sets at 2017’s Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbühl, Germany, capturing the unit at their very best.”

The band has switched out rhythm guitarists and drummers, but they’ve always been anchored by three founding members: vocalist Johan Hegg, lead guitarist Olavi Mikkonen, and bassist Ted Lundström. Check out the documentary trailer and a clip from their performance:

The Pursuit Of Vikings: 25 Years In The Eye Of The Storm is available now on DVD, Blu-ray, CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
