Amon Amarth Frontman Reacts To Headlining Bloodstock

Amon Amarth

(Metal Hammer) Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg says the band can't wait to headline Bloodstock next year and return to the birthplace of the "epic Viking rowing" ritual favored by their fans.

During Amon Amarth's 2009 set at Bloodstock, a number of fans sat down in a rowing formation and invented a much safer - and funnier - form of crowd participation than moshing, circle pits or the notorious 'wall of death.' A video of the rowing stunt from can be viewed below.

And after being announced as Friday night headliners for Bloodstock 2017, Hegg tells Metal Hammer he is counting down the days until his Catton Park return.

Hegg says: "It's great that we're going to be back at Bloodstock. I love it there, it's a fun festival to play. We always had a great time there, always had a great crowd. And of course that is where the 'epic Viking rowing' was invented, so that will always have a special place in our hearts." Read more here.
