Feast your eyes on Decibel Magazine’s April 2011 issue which finds AMON AMARTH vocalist Johan Hegg, bloodied with blazing sword in hand, gracing the cover! The issue follows Decibel’s worldwide premiere of “Slaves Of Fear,” the fourth track off AMON AMARTH’s eagerly anticipated new full-length Surtur Rising. (Check it out HERE, if you missed it.) The seven-page feature by Greg Moffitt (with exclusive photos by Ester Segarra) finds Hegg and guitarist Olavi Mikkonen talking candidly about writing, recording, tour life, the Viking themes that have shaped the band’s legacy, Christianity and more.

Scheduled for North American release via Metal Blade on March 29, 2011, Surtur Rising marks the eighth studio offering from the kings of epic, melodic death metal. Be sure to visit the official Surtur Rising landing page, which includes album pre-orders for North America and Europe as well as up-to-the-minute news updates, tour announcements, videos and singles leading up to the record’s release.

In celebration of the release, the melodic death metal tyrants will embark on 2011 U.S. headlining tour next month. Simply dubbed “An Evening With AMON AMARTH,” this very special trek will find the band touring without support and instead performing two separate sets each night. One set will include the performance of Surtur Rising in its entirety.
