Amon Amarth’s Johan Hegg on The MetalSucks Podcast #266
Johan Hegg of Amon Amarth is our guest this week. We discuss Amon Amarth’s new live retrospective and documentary The Pursuit of Vikings: 25 years in the Eye of the Storm, his feelings on live albums in general, whether it’s possible to capture a band’s connection with the audience on video, the importance of Europe’s “The Final Countdown” to the origins of Amon Amarth, the 8-bit video game the band released and his favorite video games when he was growing up, the influence of the recently deceased Stan Lee on his life, and the weapon he would choose to fight with in a Viking battle.
Petar and Brandon discover the fetish-finding company everybody needs, the couple that decided to make a baby at the front row of a Machine Head concert, Ihsahn making us all fans of Kanye West by explaining his appreciation for the rapper, and what we think is the most artistic stage of a band’s career.
