Northmen: A Viking Saga feat. AMON AMARTH's Johan Hegg Gets US Release Date
We've been talking about this movie for two years now, and we finally have a chance to see it.
Northmen: A Viking Saga is described as "a band of Vikings cross enemy lines and a panicked race begins; the losers will pay with their lives." Why is this relevant to metal? Well, other than vikings being super-metal, the most recognizable of all metal vikings, Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg has a featured role in the film. Here's the full synopsis:
A band of Vikings are stranded behind enemy lines on the coast of Alba as their longboat goes down in a dreadful storm. Their only chance of survival is to find a path to the Viking settlement, Danelagh, traversing an unfamiliar and hostile land they have never known. The journey becomes a race for their lives when the King of Alba sends his most feared mercenaries after them. But when the Vikings meet a kind Christian Monk who preaches with his sword, the hunters become the hunted as the Vikings set deadly traps, mercilessly decimating their pursuers one by one, culminating in a final and deadly encounter.
The film will have a US release date of July 31st via iTunes and other digital retailers. You can watch the trailer here:
