VIKING METAL WITH BIG BEARDS. That’s why you’re here, right? To see lots of photos of Johan Hegg and the lads from Amon Amarth headbang to their top-notch brand of sub-genre metal. Yes? Our man Mike Burnell was on hand to get lots of photos of just that when the band’s recent UK tour landed in Brighton.
