Swedish Viking metal titans Amon Amarth have completed the writing process for their new album and are ready to head back into the studio to start recording it!
“We want to thank everyone that has supported and helped us in 2012,” write the band on their website.
“2013 will be another intense year for Amon Amarth, and looks like it will be slightly unpredictable and mischievous…
“We’ve just finished writing all the songs for the next full-length album, and we’re ready to enter the studio to start recording them in the New Year.”
Unconfirmed rumours suggest that the as-yet-untitled opus, which will be the follow-up to 2010′s Sutur Rising and released via Metal Blade, will feature songs about beardy people smashing the shit out of each other and gods and monsters and whatnot.
While we’re waiting, we can always stock up on Amon Amarth wine.
