Great albums that don't get enough credit.
Why do people bag on this album? It's got some amazing songs and is
pretty similar to Endgame.
While not as good as any of Death's progressive metal releases, this is still
a great album.
For a debut, this album is near amazing, and the guitar harmonies make it
sound different than later Opeth.

surprised it isn't considered one of the greatest progressive metal albums
ever. These guys eat time signatures for breakfast.
Twilight of the Thunder God
Much more consistent than earlier Amon Amarth releases, and the melodies
are very good.
