AMON AMARTH Frontman Talks 'Surtur Rising' In New Audio Interview
April 5, 2011
On March 22, 2011, U.K.'s Soundsphere conducted an interview with vocalist Johan Hegg of Swedish death metallers AMON AMARTH. You can now listen to the chat in two parts below.
AMON AMARTH's eighth studio album, "Surtur Rising", was released on March 29 via Metal Blade Records. Named in tribute to Surtur, leader of the fire giants of Muspelheim ("flame land") and the oldest being in the nine worlds of Norse mythology, the CD features 10 tracks of sword-wielding, fist-pumping, hyper climactic battle anthems. The follow-up to 2008's monolithic "Twilight Of The Thunder God" full-length was recorded again at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren and features strikingly brutal cover art by Tom Thiel.
