The Top Ten

1
Amon Amarth
People argue that Amon Amarth is melodic death metal and not viking metal but come on guys all they sing about is vikings... They're viking metal. And just because Bathory was the first viking metal band doesn't mean they're the best. Amon Amarth does viking metal the best
I love this band! Usually, I'm not a big fan of growling, but Hegg does something that makes it interesting and almost melodic. The ridiculous speeds of their songs is incomparably epic. If your going to go Viking Metal, Amon Amarth is a versatile band that almost any lover of metal can enjoy.
Best of the Best - They have improved on every album

2Bathory
Bathory has invented this genre! What the hell is wrong with you people? Vote this great band to first place and Amon Amarth to second!
AMON AMMARTH IS A MELODIC DEATH METAL BAND NOT A VIKING METAL,NEITHER MANOWAR.BATHORY & ENSLAVED SHOULD BE AT TOP!

GREYBOYY

Swedish Black Metal band Bathory are considered as the pioneers of Viking Metal.
