We’re ready to take this record around the world for a two-year run and we’ll see you at the shows soon.”

Video development for “Find a way or make one”the band says, “We made this video with a director Mikis Fontanier in Frankfurt, Germany and with him we wanted to try something different. This video is our take on the style of some of our favorite videos we grew up watching as kids, for example DUMPED SISTER‘c ‘We won’t take it’ and MOTORHEAD‘c “Slain by Death”.

Speaking of “Phantasm” podcast about the process of writing and recording for “The Great Heathen Army”, AMON AMART guitarist Olavi Mikkonen said, “We didn’t really plan on making an album. We felt we should. But when we started writing, it was quite normal [writing session] about us. And then we recorded in England – we recorded with Andy Snape. Obviously there were still some problems with the pandemic, but it didn’t really affect it… He has a studio on a farm and we all lived on the farm as well. So we sort of isolated ourselves there. Because we didn’t really want to have the virus there. If someone gets it, we have to delay the recording for a month or so. So we kind of stuck to ourselves. And that was pretty cool because it’s really creative.”

Olavi kept saying that A click “do a monstrous job” of “The Great Heathen Army”. “He was working around the clock,” he said. “Because we all took it differently [recording]. I am in the morning [person]. I did the morning shifts, so to speak, and then Ted [Lundström, bass] or Johan Soderbergh [guitar] do a day shift. And the evening Johan Hegg [vocals] was singing. Yeah, it was really cool.”

Development of AMON AMARTworking relationship with A click, Mykonos said: “What really helps is that we really like him as a person and he really likes us. And he actually likes our group too. I’m not usually into death metal stuff, but for some reason we really like it. it makes a huge difference. When you genuinely like something… Obviously money can buy you any producer you want, but if you’re really doing it because you really believe in it, that’s a huge difference. And that’s the amazing thing about Andy. But he’s also an amazing engineer and producer when it comes to sounds. He knows everything with amps, pedals or whatever – he’s just amazing at it. But he’s also a great musician himself. So that really helps too.”
