Amon Amarth is basically ‘beginner’ metal, although sometimes it’s very hard for us at DMU to hold that against them. Their latest effort, Jomsviking, comes out on March 25th and is already available for preorder from Metal Blade Records. The provided promotional video for “First Kill” continues Amon Amarth’s legacy of basic rock music with death metal aesthetics, and the fact that the band has stuck to this approach for their entire career (although their first few albums were allegedly a bit more complex) is non-news at best. After this album’s release, Amon Amarth will be going on a lengthy tour of the US with Entombed A.D and Exmortus that will last most of April and May.

It’s power metal pop more than melodeath or Gothenburg at this point.
Crappy song from crappy band in crappy news (you even admit it in the article, it’s ‘non-news’ !!!)
Frankly, what is the actual purpose of these three-line posts ? It’s visual pollution and I always skip this crap.
Please, for metal’s sake, focus on good bands, or more sadistic reviews, but stop reflecting on mediocrity, it’s all SO BORING.
It might be worth attending in hopes that entombed will play some tunes off LHP and clandestine, but that would be wishful thinking.
Amon amarth seem genuine about their Viking beliefs/odinism, but never found their music interesting.
This site kills me. New Sammath announced, new Infamous, Graveland Italian dates set, new Lord Wind rumors, Asgard re released…..so much interesting stuff happening and this is the news we are treated to? Who can I send an email to in order to help make the news section relevant again? I wont write again, but I can send you information if you want.
