AMON AMARTH RELEASE VIDEO FOR “SAXONS AND VIKINGS” FEATURING MEMBERS OF HEAVY METAL BAND SAXON


Formed in Tumba, Sweden, in 1992, AMON AMARTH have forged an extraordinary legacy over three decades of thunderous, anthemic metal, all rich in the magical imagery of Viking history, folklore, and culture. With albums like 2008’s widely acclaimed Twilight Of The Thunder God and 2016’s conceptual triumph Jomsviking, the Swedes have been consistent standard bearers for heavy metal as a life-affirming and communal experience, armed with a seemingly endless stream of instant classic songs.


Fans can now watch the brand new music video for the song “Saxons and Vikings'' off AMON AMARTH’s current album The Great Heathen Army. The video features British heavy metal band SAXON’s Biff Byford, who provides vocals for the song, along with his bandmates Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt facing off against AMON AMARTH’s very own Vikings Olavi Mikkonen, Ted Lundström, Johan Söderberg, Johan Hegg, and Jocke Wallgren. Who will win and who will die? Watch the video to see the fate of these Saxons and Vikings!


AMON AMARTH’s lead vocalist, Johan Hegg, had this to say of the new video; ”Recording this song with the legends from SAXON was amazing. It was such an honour to have them on this track, and to shoot a video with them was so much fun. I think the video came out great, really epic. It captures the essence of the song perfectly and the fight scenes are awesome!"


Biff Byford of SAXON added; “Doing the ‘Saxons and Vikings’ video was good fun, the fight scenes were epic and the song is cool."



In other recent news, AMON AMARTH are set to return to North America in 2024 following their summer run crisscrossing the continent with their metal comrades in Ghost.


British fans can catch AMON AMARTH headlining BLOODSTOCK festival in Catton Park, Derbyshire in August 2024 alongside Opeth and Architects, and many more, in what is set to be the unmissable, heavy metal festival event of the year! Get BLOODSTOCK tickets here.
