Amon Amarth completes new album

Swedish death metal veterans Amon Amarth have completed work on their next album. The outing was tracked at Sphere Studios in North Hollywood, California with producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour) and is expected to hit streets this spring through Metal Blade Records. Via a recent interview with Revolver, frontman Johan Hegg had the following to say about the new record:
""With the last record, 'Jomsviking', I wrote a complete fucking movie script and we turned it into an album. This time around, I didn't have any of those ideas but we also didn't want to do a concept thing, either. 'Jomsviking' turned out so well, so if you then start working on another concept album and try to top that, it would almost be impossible — unless you have a really great story lined up that you can do that with. But I didn't, so it didn't make sense. I was a bit lazy on this one — I waited for the music to be done so I could see where it would take me."
