Johan Hegg

Real/full name:
Johan Hans Hegg
50 (born Apr 29th, 1973)
Place of birth:
Sweden (Stockholm)


Johan is best known as the frontman of the Swedish melodic death metal band Amon Amarth and a previous incarnation of them as Scum.


Hegg spoke of Amon Amarth's unwillingness to be labelled viking metal and insisted that they've never called themselves such.

Together with his wife, Maria Rizell Hegg, he is featured in Norwegian band Audrey Horne's music video for "Out of the City".

He had a supporting role in the 2014 film Northmen: A Viking Saga.
