Regarding AMON AMARTH‘s decision to work with Sneap after utilizing Jens Bogren for the band’s last three studio efforts (2006’s “With Oden On Our Side”, 2008’s “Twilight Of The Thunder God” and 2011’s “Surtur Rising”), AMON AMARTH guitarist Olavi Mikkonen told Decibel magazine, “We were looking for a change, and Andy has been in our thoughts for some years now. After meeting with him, we felt a good connection. We think this is going to be a ripper.”
