Heavy metal Vikings AMON AMARTH have shared a message with fans online, inviting them to visit an official tattoo pop-up studio before each UK headline show, to get inked with a range of AMON AMARTH tattoos in conjunction with Old Sarum Tattoo.

The message reads:

Get in the mood by watching the historically accurate video to AMON AMARTH’s stomping, anthemic call to arms ‘Shield Wall‘.

The rabble-rousing clip chronicles the plight of an enemy ship come to invade a Viking village. But, as frontman Johan Hegg’s gutteral growl chants ‘Vikings, Raise The Shield Wall, Hold The Front Line, Fight Til Death‘, the fate of the enemy becomes uncertain. Who will emerge victorious from battle? Watch below;

AMON AMARTH have been steadily gaining strength over the years, culminating with stunning new album ‘Berserker‘ smashing into the top echelons of global album sales charts, earning the band some of their highest chart positions to date.

Comprising 12 monstrous heavy metal anthems that burst with melodic hooks, thrilling savagery, and spine-tingling drama, ‘Berserker‘ is the result of a huge surge of creativity and a collective desire to keep moving forward without compromise.
