The Top Ten
The first Amon Amarth album I heard. The first three songs are amazing. I love the growly bit right before he says free will sacrifice, and the narrative on guardians of Asgaard.
First amon amarth album I heard and twilight of the thunder god is awesome I know every word to it and I've only been listening to amon amarth for probably 5 days :) anyway I love this album and all the others to AA is awesome
Thor! Oden's son protector of mankind!
Incredible album. Not a single weak point I can think of.
The production is unique and the riffs are amazing. Not a single disappointing song on the entire album. Has a powerful Nordic feel to it that some of the other albums don't capture as well.
I love this album and it is one of the best death metal albums I've heard. The first song is average but every song after that is a beautifully arranged, classic death metal tune with overlapping melodies getting shoved right in your face. The title track is the best song.
After the songs 'Pursuit of Vikings' and 'Death in Fire' the first full album I heard and still their best up to date. The following four all lack in something this album certainly has. I may describe it as the "vibe". All nine songs are just amazing, I wouldn't get tired of them.
One of the very few albums where every single song is absolute gold.
Absolutely love this album. My favorite AA albums rotate between Jomsviking, With Oden on Our Side and Twilight of the Thunder God. Just a great concept album
Best melodic death metal band in the world continues to dominate the charts! This album tells the best story in all of metal in my humble opinion.
Killer album, manages to stand out among the newer albums which all seem to have a similar sound. New and fresh
Best death metal album ever. Great story, amazing songs and best everything!
It's the absolute perfect balance of showcasing talent, playing heavy, and being epic.
Surtur Rising is awesome and it has some of my favorite songs from AA, Wrath Of The Norsemen, War Of The Gods and Destroyer Of The Universe. I think they’ve left this album behind, so sad they don’t play it live. But war of the gods is so good!
Can't stop listening to these songs! The music is magnificent and the lyrics go perfect with it! Best album
Honestly this and Twilight are the top two in my opinion but all of them are awesome so take your pick.
I've listened to AA for a year now, my list has been changing over the months. now I have settled for this as my top 3 right here:
1. with oden on our side
2. twilight of the thunder god
3. versus the world
Great melodies, tight song structure, awesome lyrics to growl along! Best album of AA as a whole. in my humble opinion.
Every song is a masterpiece. The guitar ton of this album is my all time favorite, it's just some damn metal. With Odin on our Side is a close second for me.
Not just one of the best AA albums, one of the best extreme metal albums ever. Defined Amons current sound with thickly layered guitars, switching between epic and somber songwriting and highly dynamic vocal lines. This album could get you prepared for heated battle.
Their best album in my humble opinion. This one just has more for me. Meaning that the songs just feel right and the heaviness is just right. That epic feel is all there. Head bang to this album.
An instant classic. By far the best album I've heard in years. These other albums aren't even close.
Their comeback in 2013... That was not a deceiver, that was a promise to the fans!
Amon Amarth is one of those bands that does the same thing for every album but never gets old. Unlike most bands, however, their 9th album actually manages to successfully fulfill that formula and maybe add a little something enw...
There is not a single bad song on this album. There is not even a single 'okay' song on this album. It is an hour of godliness. When I listen to this album (much like Jomsviking), I cannot just pick a few songs... No, I have to listen to the whole thing. Victorious March and the title track alone could put it in the top 5. Then add the rest? It is nothing short of #1.
Victorious March and Once Sent From The Golden Hall alone are enough to put this really high up. Throw in the rest of this masterpiece and you easily have one of the best albums ever.
I prefer this album as it is the one with the most strength
A Great Melodic Metal Album, it has great songs: The Fates Of Norms, The Pursuit, Once Sealed In Blood. Definitely one of my favorites
"Where death seems to dwell" and "Fate of Norns" can make a Viking cry
I think this should be higher, it's better than Vs the World, Deciever and Golden Hall and it contains The Pursuit of Vikings which is easily one of their best songs.
Berserker has all that I need. I like Crack The Sky as a live song a lot. Valkyria has a beautiful piano ending. But my favorite is The Berserker At Stamford Bridge, I just like the heaviness.
Awesome album, the NWOBHM influences are great and the guitar--and bass work superb
I bought and listened to the entire thing and It easily became one of my favorite albums! It's so heavy and melodic.
I have nothing but good things to say about this album. It sounds really good, heavy and melodic. The guitar work is fantastic just like the drums and the bass. The first song, Fafner's Gold, is an incredible song and it sets the tone for the rest of the album perfectly. A lot of the songs are absolute jems like "Mjolner, Hammer of Thor", "The Berserker at Stamford Bridge" and "Wings of Eagles" along with "Valkyria", "Ironside" and "Into the Dark" which has very nice piano parts in it. Overall, this is really one of Amon Amarth's best albums and they never disappoint as always!
The album is very raw, heavy and fast paced. The track list is excellent and included early Amon Amarth epics like "Bleed for Ancient Gods" and "Last of Pagan Blood". Great album.
I love the speed and energy of this one, and I've overplayed 'North Sea Storm' just for that solo more times than I can count.
