Best Viking Metal Bandswolphert
The Top TenXW
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. - Nord666
I do not understand how this is even a debate. Bathory will always be the best viking metal band to ever exist. This is indisputable. - LadyBansheeV6 Comments
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.
Amon amarth is NOT VIKING METAL! If you say that, just admin that you haven't been into metal for more than 2 years. They play melodeath 100%. Just because they sing about vikings doesn't make them death metal. That's like saying metallica is death metal because they sing about death...

As fire swept clean the earth is one of the greatest songs in all of metal. - wolphertV1 Comment
Turisas is very overlooked. Their album The Varangian Way is what got me into Death Metal with Folk Influences 'Viking' Metal. definitely should be higher up this list. m/V1 Comment
Everything they put out is amazing. Should be much higher on this list.
If you are new to this band, check out the album "Sagas".
