“Northmen: A Viking Saga” With Amon Amarth’s Johan Hegg

Many of you may know about Amon Amarth and how 99.9% of their music is about Norse Mythology. Well over the past few months, Johan Hegg, lead vocals, has been busy filming Northmen: A Viking Saga, in which he plays Valli.

The film tells the story of a gang of Viking marauders, shipwrecked and trapped deep in enemy territory, who cut a bloody swath through Scotland to reach a Viking stronghold, while relentlessly pursued by the king’s most feared mercenaries, the Wolf Pack. However, the hunters become the hunted when the Vikings, eager for battle, set deadly traps and mercilessly decimate their pursuers one by one.

From what I remember when I interviewed Olavi, death metal vocals are about killing and gore, and fighting with swords is pretty metal… well that’s exactly the case with this film.

Check out the trailer that was just released today in the player above. I will definitely be waiting for Northmen: A Viking Saga to hit theaters. As of right now there’s an October release date in Germany, but nothing for the U.S.
