(Metal Hammer) Amon Amarth have confirmed that drummer Jocke Wallgren is now a permanent member of the band. He stepped in as a touring replacement for Fredrik Andersson earlier this year, after Tobias Gustafsson was hired to record with for 10th album Jomsviking.

Frontman Johan Hegg said in April that Wallgren was on course to be their permanent sticksman - and they've now made it official. The band say in a statement: "We are happy to have Jocke with us as a permanent band member. He has done a great job for us on the current world tour, bringing excellent drumming with a positive attitude and great personality, something that will definitely benefit Amon Amarth for years to come."

Wallgren adds: "I'm super excited to jump aboard the unstoppable Amon Amarth longship! My predecessors have inspired me greatly throughout the years and I will do my best to honour the legacy that is Amon Amarth." Read more here.
