The Top Ten

1
Amon Amarth
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.
I love this band! The aggression, the melody and even the growling all come together to make an exceptionally interesting, intense and exciting mix. That's me done! I'm off to split some skulls har har m/
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!
I love Amon Amarth but they're not Viking Metal! Neither are Tyr or Manowar! Viking Metal is a subgenre of Black Metal! It's not just any Norse Mythology themed Metal. Bathory deserve to be first!
