[DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL] Interview with Olavi Mikkonen (Amon Amarth)

Amon Amarth have been marching purposefully from triumph to greater triumph for the last two decades. Formed amid the fertile Swedish metal scene in the mid 90’s, these dedicated diehards brought a new sense of drama and destruction to the world of heavy music, propagating tales of Viking mythology and mortal combat over a devastating soundtrack of crushing rhythms, refined melody and rousing, rebellious refrains.

Casper chatted with Olavi regarding their appearance at Australia’s first ever DOWNLOAD festival and life on the road.
