Late March Amon Amarth will unleash their 10th studio album  Jomsviking, via Metal Blade Records (North America)/Sony Music (International)! Jomsviking – the band’s first concept record in their storied career – tells a tragic tale of love and revenge, backed by the Swedes’ trademark melodic, anthemic metal, which was produced and mixed once again by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Accept) and also features special guest session drummer Tobias Gustafsson (Vomitory).

The epic original story is set in the world of the Jomsvikings, the legendary order of mercenary Vikings. As front-man Johan Hegg explains: “The Jomsvikings were a shadowy and legendary sect of Viking mercenaries, as shrouded in myth now as they were when they fought across Europe and the Middle East. Ruthless and deadly warriors who fought for the highest bidder, their code was simple: Show no fear. Never retreat. Defend your brothers, and when called upon, avenge their deaths. I felt we were finally ready to use their story as the jumping off point for an Amon Amarth album. The Jomsvikings and their world is the background for the story of a young man that is in love with a girl but unfortunately she’s being married off. He accidentally kills a man when this happens and he has to flee – but he swears to have revenge and win her back. He can’t let go of the past. He feels that he’s been wronged and his life has been destroyed. The way the story evolves is not a happy story.”

 

By far their most ambitious project to date, Jomsviking is available for pre-order in various formats now at ‪amonamarth.com (see below for the official track-listing) – where fans can also view the video for the album’s first single, “First Kill”. Produced by Grupa 13 (http://www.grupa13.com) and directed by Darek Szermanowicz (Behemoth), “First Kill” was filmed in Gohrweide (Germany) and Warsaw (Poland) and features a cinematic depiction of the violent, brutal lyrics, along with powerful live footage of the band performing with their full dragon head and pyro stage-set.

Mastodon to release limited “White Walker” picture disc

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 at 12:24 PM (PST)

70992d50-d5fc-4214-b017-cf3c1b4e8b2c

Mastodon will release a 12″ vinyl picture disc of their non-album track “White Walker” on February 19th via Warner Bros. Records.

Side A features “White Walker,” which was released digitally last winter as part of the Game of Thronesmixtape Catch the Throne: The Mixtape, Volume 2. The track was commissioned by the show’s producers when the band appeared on the show as extras. Insanely dope Welsh illustrator Richey Beckett designed the artwork, which was inspired by the show.

The B-Side of the 12′ features an a Cappella version of “White Walker”,the original idea for the song recorded by Brann Dailor on his phone in his kitchen.

The artwork is a still from the episode in which the band members appeared as murdered “wildlings” who are brought back to life by White Walkers.

The Mastodon “White Walker” picture disc will be pressed in very limited quantities and will be available for pre-order beginning today here and in retails stores beginning Feb 19th. Do not hesitate as these will sell out fast!

Failure and triumph, sword and sorcery. We are excited to visit the US again and make our first trip to Canada. Our tour in 2015 was awesome, and we look forward to doing this all again. See you at the front.”
