iTunes Review

A cohesive concept album about the struggle to conquer Valhalla with swords and honor, Surtur Rising is also a take-no-prisoners sonic explosion. The mighty guitars of "War of the Gods," punishing death-march "Destroyers of the Universe," emotional wreckage of "The Last Stand of Frej," and doomsaying chant of "Wrath of the Norseman" are Amon Amarth in their purest form. From start to finish, some of their most memorable riffs and tunes shore up these mythological images of wartime valor.

The Vikings Are Back For Victory!!!

Bone crushing, helmet smashing, axe grinding, steel on steel metal! The Swedish warriors Amon Amarth are back with Surtur Rising, and I am giddy as a young Norse lad who has just slayed his first enemy! Every song on this album is "killer". A few absolutely brilliant gems that stand out are Slaves of Fear, Tock's Taunt - Loke's Treachery, Pt. 2, The Last Stand of Frej, and War of the Gods. The use of orchestral strings on Doom Over a Dead Man only adds to the intensity of the track. Overall, in my humble opinion, another masterpiece from a band who seems to only get better with time. If you are a fan, this is a must have! Stay strong and rock on my Pagan brothers and sisters.

This is by far my favorite album by them. Everything from the music to the lyrics is written insanely well and the whole album had me pumped. I highly recommend adding this one to your collection.
