Album Review

If extreme metal existed back in the days of Vikings, Sweden's Amon Amarth would undoubtedly be the musical choice of vessels sailing rough and treacherous seas. And on the seventh full-length studio effort overall by the quintet, Amon Amarth sticks closely to the same sound and approach that got them this far in the first place. But unlike their prior studio efforts, several renowned names within the metal community drop by to lend a heavy hand, including Entombed vocalist Lars-Göran Petrov on "Guardians of Asgaard." Children of Bodom guitarist Roope Latvala provides a guitar solo on the title track, while Apocalyptica is heard on "Live for the Kill." As evidenced by such ditties as "Varyags of Miklagaard" and "Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags" (how's that for two snappy song titles?!), technically demanding musicality, Godzilla-like growls, and rhythms/tempos compared to horses galloping into war are all proudly on display throughout Twilight of the Thunder God, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Epic, Viking, God Slaying Melodic Death Metal (and it feels so good)

Amon Amarth don't play the game, they OWN it. The best death metal band around. period.

Amon Amarth? Brilliant!

I heard about this band about a year ago and I was skeptical about it at first. I never used to listen to Death Metal but Amon Amarth is pure and amazing! Twilight of the Thunder God is a must have for anyone who loves Amon Amarth and I picked up on this music quickly. My ratings for these tracks are: Twilight of the Thunder God : 10/10 Free Will Sacrifice: 9/10 Guardians of Asgaard: 10/10 Where Is Your God?: 9.5/10 Varyags of Miklagaard: 8/10 Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags: 8.5/10 No Fear for the Setting Sun: 9/10 The Hero: 9/10 Live for the Kill: 9.5/10 Embrace of the Endless Ocean: 10/10 just simply an amazing album

Yes!

Dude, if you do love death metal but hate these guys, find a new genre.
