Amon Amarth have unveiled the title track of their forthcoming album, The Great Heathen Army, due out on August 5, 2022 via Metal Blade Records.

Accompanying the release is a cinematic music video, directed by Pavel Trebukhin and shot in Riga, Latvia.

Speaking of the forthcoming record and new release, the Viking metallers explain, "The armada of the Great Heathen Army is at sea on the way to raid, but before we land at distant shores on August 5 we have a new single and video for you to feast on.

"This is the title track from the new album with a video we shot with the talented Pavel Trebukhin in Riga, Latvia. Who will you choose to fight with? The Vikings or the Saxons? Choose well and the Gods will decide your fate."

Later this year, Amon Amarth will voyage across Europe on a co-headline tour to promote the new album alongside Machine Head and fellow countrymen The Halo Effect.
