The debut album by Viking metal's golden gods fires out of the gates with a full speed, ax-in-hand sprint toward enemy lines. Infusing the distinct Swedish melodic death metal sound with lyrics drawing directly from Nordic folklore and Tolkienesque tales of epic combat, Amon Amarth forge their first battle cry with pummeling attacks like the galloping "Ride For Vengeance" and the ominous drone of "The Dragons' Flight Across the Waves." The climactic "Amon Amarth" literally features battle sounds of clashing swords over soaring guitars.
Amon Amarth is becoming one of my favorite bands, and this early album is awesome. They are fierce, brutal, and fast. If you want the best Viking Metal in the world, Amon Amarth is where to look. Songs like "Dragons' Flight Across the Waves" and "Friends of the Suncross" are just amazing. Pick this album up. It is unreal.
Pure Viking Glory
Don't let the iTunes description put you off. Amon Amarth has forged a genre all their own that borrows from Gothenburg Death Metal but then charges into a new realm of pure Viking glory. Their first full album, Once Sent From the Golden Hall, is a brutal, aggressive, and awe inspiring ode to the Viking gods and warriors of old. But this is no gimmick. The Swedish Vikings of Amon Amarth believe in their vision and have stayed consistent through their entire career. They believe in what they are doing and you will too.
Seriously, the itunes description of this album is off. Once sent from the Golden Hall is one of my favorite albums of Amon Amarth. Ride For vengance has to be the greatest song on the album. Same great swedish death metal. Same great taste.
