AMON AMARTH (SWEDEN)


Hailing from Tumba, a suburb of Stockholm, AMON AMARTH, titled after the Mount Doom of J.R.R. Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy, trace their roots back to 1992, formatively taking the title SCUM. Once SCUM folded, the musicians regrouped as AMON AMARTH. At this stage the band involved Johan Hegg, guitarists Olavi Mikkonen and Anders Hansson, with Nico Kaukinen on drums. The unit's first available recording was to have been 1993's 'Thor Arise' demo, constructed at Lagret Studio. It contained these songs: Risen From the Sea, Atrocious Humanity, Army of Darkness, Thor Arise and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. It was to be a full year before second demo, 1994's 'The Arrival Of The Fimbul Winter', made it onto the tape trading scene leading to a deal with Singapore based label Pulverised Records.
