The first time I saw Amon Amarth live was about a year back on FortaRock Fest Nijmegen, The Netherlands, during their Jomsviking European Tour. I have to say I was really impressed by their powerful show. With the big Viking himself Johan Hegg on vocals leading the attack you were made to feel throughout the entire show you were one with the Viking clan and being prepared for war. Already I can’t wait to see them again.
Jomsviking is the band’s first go at a full concept story album. It’s a dramatic and tragic story of love and revenge based on the history of the jomsvikings. Listened to it a couple of times now and it really grew on me. Amon Amarth is definitely one of the leading melodic death metal bands around, and with albums like this it’s not hard to see why.
