FROM METAL BLADE RECORDS:
It's here! Watch "At Dawn's First Light", the brand new video from Amon Amarth now at http://amonamarth.com/
Produced by Rafal Szermanowkicz/Grupa 13 (grupa13.com) and directed by Darek Szermanowicz (Behemoth), “At Dawn’s First Light” is set in an epic battle scene in a Slavic settlement from the 9th-10th century (ukranenland.de) – with the band caught in the middle of the bloody fight! The video features an appearance by the modern Viking warriors known as the Triglav Jomsborg East Storm who are lead by the ruthless and energetic fight director Igor Gorewicz.
For another preview of Jomsviking, the first official video, “First Kill” (also produced by Grupa 13 and directed by Darek Szermanowicz – but with powerful live footage of Amon Amarth performing with their full dragon head and pyro stage-set!), can be viewed at: amonamarth.com
Leading up to Jomsviking‘s release, fans can visit amonamarth.com for a more in-depth look into the album, where a special digital picture book campaign has been launched. Each day (through March 24th), a new track page will be revealed, featuring lyrics, booklet images, and 30-second song clips.
