Amon Amarth Drummer Jocke Wallgren In New Gearcheck

Music nStuff have released a new Gearcheck segment, featuring Amom Amarth drummer Jocke Wallgren.

“We visited the Swedish musicians before their show at the Zenith in Munich and they were kind enough to show us their live equipment. Let’s start with Jocke Wallgren’s drum gear.”

Amon Amarth has a long history with Metal Blade Records, that goes back to 1998 when they released their debut album, Once Sent From The Golden Hall. After almost 20 years, it’s now time for a vinyl reissue of this album, as well as 1999’s The Avenger, as part of the Metal Blade Originals-Series! Both albums will be released with 400g heavy cardboard spine sleeves (inside out print), 60x60cm two-sided artwork posters and 250g inserts.
