Packaging Porn – Amon Amarth’s JOMSVIKING

A bit of back story – We’re trying to buy albums on vinyl now when possible, especially when they come with a CD or digital download. So when Amon Amarth’s ‘Jomsviking’ was released I got down to HMV and found one lonely copy there on the shelf. Naturally, I had to buy it.

This isn’t a review of the album, we all know it’s fantastic and Amon Amarth never disappoint. Unless you’re not into that kind of thing, then who doesn’t love a bit of great packaging?

So I bought it, all wrapped up. Got it home and couldn’t wait to open it.

So I opened it up and…

Oh Great Odin’s Raven! It’s pop-up.

POP UP!

Isn’t that just a thing of beauty?

I have a fair collection of Amon Amarth records and have always been impressed, from bright pink vinyl to pop-up, 100% worth the extra cash.
