Amon Amarth Announce New Album, Drop Brolic Single “Get In The Ring”

Metal

Last we heard from Viking metallers Amon Amarth was the release of their new single “Put Your Back Into the Oar” back in February. Now, the band have announced a new album, and have dropped another single to boot.

Amon Amarth’s new record will be called The Great Heathen Army, and drops August 5th via Metal Blade. The album is already available for preorder.

Says frontman Johan Hegg:

“Overall ‘The Great Heathen Army’ is one of the heavier albums we’ve made. There are some dark and heavy songs that are really powerful and in-your-face, but we obviously have some trademark melodic Amon Amarth songs on there as well, and a few surprises too. It’s a really well-balanced album. It sounds great. Andy Sneap is awesome. It was great to be able to work with him again.”

The new single, “Get In The Ring,” was written for AEW wrestler Erick Redbeard, and comes via a post-apocalyptic music video.

About the track, guitarist Olavi Mikkonen says:

“I really like ‘Get In The Ring’ which was written for our friend Erick Redbeard the pro wrestler as an “entrance” song for him. The lyrics are obviously written to fit both Viking and wrestling themes, and you can also see Erick as the lead character in the new video for the song. We shot the video in Wroclaw, Poland with our friends Grupa 13 and they helped us create this dark and epic Mad Max meets Viking underground super brutal fight club for the video clip.”
