Viking stories aren’t just for adults, you know! Beyond his vicious gutturals in Amon Amarth, Johan Hegg wishes to entertain the little ones who don’t have a taste for death metal… yet.

Thankfully, we had a copy of The Littlest Viking by Alexandra Penfold so Johan could tell the tale of Sven and his newest friend. You see, Sven was the best storyteller in the land, but with the arrival of a princess, nobody had time to hear the young viking’s stories.

The tiny princess could not be eased by shiny plunder or a ride on the great ship. Thus, Sven used his immaculate narration skills to comfort the young maiden, with incredible results.

Watch Johan Hegg read The Littlest Viking aloud in the video above and be sure to pick up a copy of Amon Amarth’s new album, Berserker.
