Amon Amarth Reveal Details Of Documentary And Live Album 'The Pursuit Of Vikings'

Friday, 21 September 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Amon Amarth have announced their new documentary and supporting live album, 'The Pursuit Of Vikings: 25 Years In The Eye Of The Storm.'

Out on November 16, the package will feature live and behind-the-scenes content and extensive band interviews, telling the Swedish quintet's history, through both their own eyes and those of the fans.

Paired with the documentary is the live album/DVD, which contains two different sets at 2017's Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbühl, Germany. The band played a "secret" smaller scale set of older material before headlining on the main stage with full production. Guitarist Olavi Mikkonen explained:

"For the first night, we wanted to write a set list that the fans would enjoy by wholly diving into our back catalog but also keeping it interesting. Putting the two shows together also made us realize that we have a lot of songs to chose from."

In the UK, the release will be available in multiple formats via label Music For Nations. Take a look at the trailer, below.

True Rockers Take Risks: Why Monster Truck Are Set To Explode
Tue 25 Sep 2018
Armed with a bulldozing brand of stoner-infused, bluesy rock ‘n’ roll, Canada’s Monster Truck have steadily established themselves as a must see live act over the last decade. Having battered more and more eardrums into submission at progressively larger venues, particularly as a support act to Deep Purple, Alter Bridge and Black Stone Cherry, arena headlining status has increasingly seemed like it’s theirs for the taking. And if their relentlessly anthemic third album ‘True Rockers’ is anything to go by, heaven help anyone who tries to stop them.

Mon 08 Oct 2018
Photo: Gene Kirkland There’s something bittersweet about this excellent third album from Slash, Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators. ‘Living The Dream’ is bursting at the seams with old school, anthemic rock ‘n’ roll of the highest calibre, but at the same time it’s hard to shake the feeling that the person behind such exhilarating music and exceptional guitar work is the very last of a dying breed.
