Melodic death metal sensations Amon Amarth kicked off their headlining North American tour with fellow Swedes Entombed A.D. and young American metal upstarts Exmortus last night. Set to run through May 21st, tickets are available at See below for all confirmed dates.

Amon Amarth have been steadily gathering strength and fans over the years, culminating with the stunning performance of the new album Jomsviking on global sales charts this week. Described in Sentinel Daily by our own Ferry Templeton as “a fine, fine record, and certainly worthy of the legacy this band continues to create” these chart positions certainly bare that statement out:

Germany: #1
Austria: #1
Switzerland: #3
Canada: #4
Finland: #4
Sweden: #5
USA Current Album Chart: #11
Australia: #15
USA Billboard Top 200: #19
Belgium: #25
UK: #30
France: #33
Netherlands: #35

Jomsviking – the band’s first concept record in their storied career – tells a tragic, original tale of conflict and revenge, backed by the Swedes’ trademark melodic, anthemic metal, which was produced and mixed once again by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Accept). To purchase and preview Jomsviking, please visit, where the album is available in various formats, and the videos for At Dawn’s First Light and First Kill can be viewed.
