Amon Amarth is a melodic death metal band from Tumba, an outer quarter of Stockholm, Sweden. They signed a recording contract with the US-american label Metal Blade Records. The band was founded in 1996.

Their lyrics are mostly about viking battles and viking gods, but they do not want to be called a "Viking Metal band".

Their new album Surtur Rising was published on March 25th 2011 (in Germany, Austria and Switzerland).
