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

A predictably solid track, cover is a miss for me too though.

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.

This so hard. Not a problem for me though, I don't expect them to ever go near 4-4.5 again.

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.

Counterpoint: Jomsviking was their best work in 8 years, and **if** they leaned harder into concept albums, they could still do interesting work

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.

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.

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?

As the flames were taken from their album covers, so too were the pure flames of death metal that burned true.

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
