Amon Amarth have stuck to their roots of heavy mid-paced metal (Sometimes a tad Slower), lyrics telling stories of Viking battles, Norse mythology, Gods, victories and legends. This is slow AMON AMARTH. might take a few listens to get in to it. I don't think they will ever Release an Album, that will surpass, With Odin On Our Side. I think, i will pass on Future Releases, as i am not liking what they do, anymore. I'm probably getting too old. If you are a BIG Fan, then is worth checking out.
Opener ' War Of The Gods,' and the fast and dramatic 'A Beast Am I' are easily among the best songs the band have released in recent years.
The DVD offers the live concerts of the first 4 albums which Amon Amarth played in 2008 (the 4 re-issues of these albums include the corresponding audio versions). If you go for the more expensive option, there is a box set with includes an action figure of Surtur, the aforementioned DVD and two bonus tracks: "Balls to the Wall" (Accept cover) and "War Machine" (Kiss cover) I purchased The Box Set, The DVD will be Amazing. At Least, i will like that.
If you are into AMON AMARTH, You may Like it or Hate, the choice is yours! Remember ... Play it Loud.
