Of all the warriors they've had on their album art, this guy is the worst. Better outfit than the guy on Versus the World, but that guy was literally about to attack the entire physical Earth with just a sword, this guy is just vaguely defiant.
but yeah the single is fine
Disappointing album cover.
A predictably solid track, cover is a miss for me too though.
Link's broken btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3qgzkIWKYA
@Trifolium The link works just fine? Ironically your link is broken.

Haha! Might have to do with regions then? Because the one in the post doesn't work for me, and the one I posted does work here. Where you at? I'm in NL, Europe.
Their worst album cover, their worst album title, most generic track listing yet, song is interchangable with anything they've done post-TotTG. I'm sure the album will be in the 3-3.5 range as always.
Hilarious, that must explain it! Cause I'm in the U.S.
''I'm sure the album will be in the 3-3.5 range as always.''
This so hard. Not a problem for me though, I don't expect them to ever go near 4-4.5 again.
''Hilarious, that must explain it! Cause I'm in the U.S.''
Really weird, never experienced this before. Ok, we know YouTube has been getting worse for a while now, but this is getting ridiculous...
I know there's money involved and shit but it must be nothing to make the same album every 2/3 years
A.A. stands next to In Flames for bands that should just stop, IMO.
That album cover dear fucking god
like you're not gonna top With Oden On Our Side, it's been 13 years since. you've had a good run, start another project or something
Counterpoint: Jomsviking was their best work in 8 years, and **if** they leaned harder into concept albums, they could still do interesting work
Album cover is undescribable...garbage. The song was also very boring...
Digging: Satanic Warmaster - Revelation ...of the Night
other counterpoint: these guys probably enjoy making a living with their shtick
Digging: Kvelgeyst - Alkahest
Lol at the nerds complaining about artwork.
Digging: Throwing Muses - Throwing Muses
Not bad. 5/5
Only complaint about the artwork is the color scheme
Lol at the nerd complaining about nerds complaining about the artwork.
Digging: Svrm - ???????????
album name reminds me of a hilarious Clerks line, lol
Digging: Cliffdiver - At Your Own Risk
Edit: nvm, poster fixed it.
I don’t really have a problem with the artwork tbh
the artwork is better than the last two shitty covers at least.
but jesus christ, i could never imagine basically writing the same album 11 times, how would you not be bored to tears? sounds soul crushing.
"alright time to write some lyrics...ugh...uhhh...
the vikings charge across the field
many men will die
we will stand our ground and our enemy will...die
eh fuck it, good enough."
Is this more of an Arena Amarth style metal like the last album? Because I really dug Jomsviking.
If the album cover is any indication, this isn't gonna be all that great. I'll keep my faith withthese guys, though.
Digging: Norma Jean - All Hail
you're drunk if you think this cover is better than their last two, the last two had great artwork.
the artwork on the last two look like they belong with some sort of shitty Flash game.
they're plenty big for a melodeath band, they could definitely afford hand-painted artwork, idk why they choose to go with this computer-generated garbage.
Ughhhh that mix sounds so lifeless, that flat drum sound and weak guitar/bass tones. Plus riffs are basically the same stuff as everything I've heard from them, palm muty trem riffs or open power chords with harmonized leads on top. Latests Unleashed albums do this whole modern melodeath/viking thing waaayy better than these guys + Where No Life Dwells is a freaking classic DM record.
Guess the Berserkers were badass
Good stuff, the video is also nice
Digging: Mystic Prophecy - Metal Division
this sounds like amon amarth alright
Meh. Boring song to be honest. Loved their stuff back in the day but this is looking like another Amon Amarth album I'm not gonna bother checking out. Why bother when you have Versus the World, Fate of Norns, With Odin On Our Side and Twilight of the Thunder God?
Digging: K-Rino - Mind Vision
i stick with Twilight, Odin, Versus, and Once Sent.
I clocked out at Surtur rising. don't even remember 1 song from it
same. it had a few hard jams but yeah, mostly forgettable.
Last few were average to me too. Still are at least enjoyable, but their golden age lies far behind them.
my love for you is like a truck berserker
Insanely boring track
"my love for you is like a truck berserker"
lmao. THANK YOU
snoozer. man, and these dudes were a favorite of mine growing up.
As the flames were taken from their album covers, so too were the pure flames of death metal that burned true.
Ye so this can't be very good
not true, not a single flame on Oden
Actually, the flames are juxtaposed so that Oden appears illuminated by them with the black background. So the flames themselves aren't visible, but their light is
Or is that a stretch
I'll take it
That's my birthday, how interesting.
sounds like a bad omen. or maybe it just means something bland and uninteresting will happen that day.
band started to suck 10 years ago and hasn't recovered since.
''band started to suck 10 years ago and hasn't recovered since.''
Suck no, but they became very average.
being average sucks so I agree with the aforementioned statement
Well, I agree that it sucks that they're average. Complex shizz!
song was an amon amarth song
video was fucking awful, the guitarists looked legit bored half the time and the CGI was lol
lol i like how they depicted themselves driving around in a little van, as if they dont have a nice ass tour bus by now.
