Speaking about Berserker, the follow-up to 2016’s Jomsviking, Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg said: “For me, this is Amon Amarth 2.0. I think what we've done here is give ourselves the space to explore other parts of our musicality and who we are as a band. 

“If you're content with where you're at, what's the point of continuing? We always want to come up with new ideas and find new ways of doing things and to create bigger and better shows and really try to improve every aspect of what the band is. 

“We want to try to keep growing and to do this for as long as we have the possibility to do so, because this is the best fucking job in the world.”

Amon Amarth are currently on tour across Europe in support of their latest album (opens in new tab) and will return to the the US and Canada for further dates later in the year.
