Amon Amarth – Interview with Johan Hegg

AMON AMARTH – Interview with Johan Hegg

By Peter Atkinson

Photos from www.facebook.com/OfficialAmonAmarth

Swedish behemoths Amon Amarth will unleash their ninth studio album Deceiver Of The Gods June 25, just a few days before they invade American shores again to be part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, where they will be first death metal act to be featured on the main stage lineup.

Amon Amarth have enjoyed a steady rise in popularity in the states since 2006′s With Oden On Our Side, cracking the Billboard Top 200 for the first time with 2008′s Twilight Of The Thunder God and the Top 40 with 2011′s Surtur Rising. And there’s no reason to see why that trend won’t continue.

Deceiver is the band’s most relentlessly aggressive album since 2002′s Versus The World, and continues their long tradition of draping the material in the violent, vivid lore of Norse mythology – all of which is driven home by the throaty roar of frontman Johan Hegg.

On the phone from Sweden, Hegg spoke of Amon Amarth’s signature, yet never static, sound, their gradual conquest of the American market and, of all things, half-term Alaska Governor/failed vice presidential candidate and professional – if often ill-informed – provocateur Sarah Palin.
