Amon Amarth announced this week that it will release a new multi-faceted released this fall.

The Pursuit of Vikings25 Years in the Eye of the Storm is currently scheduled to be released Nov. 26 via Metal Blade Records.  The collection will feature a double-live recording and a full-length documentary.

The documentary takes audiences through the band’s rich history both in studio and on the road, and includes a wealth of interviews with the band through that time.  The double-live recording features two sets from the band, performed at the 2017 Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbuhl, Germany.

Guitarist Olavi Mikkonen said the band was glad to have both performances together in one setting.

“For the first night, we wanted to write a set that the fans would enjoy by wholly diving into our back catalog, but also keeping it interesting,” Mikkonen said.  “Putting the two shows together also made us realize that we had a lot of songs to choose from!”

Pre-orders are open now along with a trailer for the collection here.  the collection will be available on CD/2DVD digipack, Blu-ray, special edition hardcover book with six discs (3DVD/2CD/1 Blu-ray) and vinyl.

The vinyl pressings will be in transparent orange, clear black with splatter and transparent yellow with orange marble vinyl.  The transparent orange pressing will be limited to 500 copies; the clear black with splatter 250 copies and yellow with orange marble 250 copies.
