|Now Where Is Your Gooood|
In celebration of Twilight of the Thunder God coming out soon, here is my ordering of all Amon
Amarth's full length albums, including TotTG, which i've already listened to about 8-9 times.
Versus the World
Definitely my favorite from Amon Amarth. Every song here is an incredible slab of death metal, it contains
some of their most epic work. As a plus, Thousand Years of Oppression is my favorite song by the band.
Highlights: Thousand Years of Oppression, For the Stabwounds in Our Back, Across the Rainbow Bridge,
Death in Fire
Twilight of the Thunder God
I've been listening to this at least once a day for the past week or so, and even though it hasn't been
officially released yet, I believe this to be Amon Amarth's second best album. It is incredibly solid
throughout, and there is only one song i don't particularly care for (Guardians of Asgaard) but it isn't a bad
track at all. Some of the band's catchiest tunes are featured here. Highlights: Embrace of the Endless
Ocean, Live For the Kill, Twilight of the Thunder God, Where is Your God?
Once Sent From the Golden Hall
I had heard about half of this album a year ago, but it wasnt untill a few days ago that i downloaded it and
listened to it for the first time as a whole. For a debut, this is pretty fucking solid. Highlights: Victorious
March, The Dragon's Flight Across the Waves, Amon Amarth, Without Fear
This album is often overlooked, and while it is virtually a continuation of their debut, it features no weak
material at all. Even though there is only one song I would really consider classic Amon Amarth (that being
The Last With Pagan Blood, one of their best imo) but the rest of the tracks are all very good tracks as well,
and the weakest track here (the title track imo) is a good deal better than their other album's weakest
tracks if that makes sense. Highlights: The Last With Pagan Blood, God, His Son, and Holy Whore, Legend
of a Banished Man, Bleed For Ancient Gods
With Oden on Our Side
I feel that this album is a bit overrated, but still very good. This album does feature Amon Amarth at their
best, but songs like the title track and Hermod's Ride to Hell never really struck me as awesome.
Highlights: Runes to My Memory, Gods of War Arise, Valhall Awaits Me, Cry of the Black Birds
This album is virtually tied with the above album, but I place it lower because it is slightly less memorable.
Both A Fury Divine, and Releasing Surtur's Fire are classic Amon Amarth, and a few other tracks rule as
well, but imo the middle section and "Masters of War" lack a little. Highlights: A Fury Divine, Releasing
Surtur's Fire, Bastards of a Lying Breed, The Sound of Eight Hooves
Fate of Norns
Their weakest album to date imo. Though definitely not bad at all, it lacks the punch (for the most part)
that their better albums have. Half of the album is fantastic however, which keeps this above a 3 rating,
but the 4 songs I won't have listed (other than the opener I suppose) aren't up to their standards imo.
Highlights: Fate of Norns, Once Sealed in Blood, The Pursuit of Vikings, Arson
|I never noticed that the two dudes in the cover art of Versus the World and Twilight are in pretty much the same exact pose...|
|I've only heard "With Oden At Our Side", and it got boring pretty fast. Is the new one that much better than "Oden"?|
|I think its much better, yea.|
|yo 'an ancient sign of coming storm' is their best song|
|I'll still take Unleased over these guys but the new album and WOOOS rule fuckin face.|
|eh 5 and 7 should be higher. and these guys owns unleashed ;)|
|Lo siento Balls, lo es verdad.|
|twilight of the thunder god is their best imo|
|Only heard WOOOS and Twilight and both are extremely solid|
|Starting to piss you off now am i balls?|
|Na. These guys are good but Unleashed really do pwn these guys not just because Amon Amarth ripped off Unleashed in the groove department but overall more badass. Heavier, anti-christian and pagan, and more death metal is my idea of a good time. No comprende Zoo.|
