The Top Ten
1 Twilight of the Thunder God Twilight of the Thunder God Product Image

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.

Overrated. Versus the World is a much better album, and so is With Oden On Our Side. Probably at the top because 1. It's overrated 2. People haven't heard VTS or WOOOS or 3. It's judged of the the title track and Guardians of Asgaard

They get their history muttled up a bit but their music and performances are amazing. Go you Vikings Go!

Best album for me. All songs are very beautiful to listen. I love this album

2 With Oden On Our Side With Oden On Our Side Product Image

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.

Basically my favorite album without any doubt.
All the songs have great riffs, awesome screams, and everything I would love from an Amon Amarth Album. This album can get me hyped up and headbanging like nothing else

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.

3 Jomsviking Jomsviking Product Image

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

Great work... these guys never fail to produce epic, heavy, melodic crushing goodness in each successive album!

4 Surtur Rising Surtur Rising Product Image

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.

It's the absolute perfect balance of showcasing talent, playing heavy, and being epic.

5 Versus the World Versus the World Product Image

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

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.

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.

Where Silent Gods Stand Guard is my favourite song from the band. This has to be their best album.

6 Deceiver of the Gods Deceiver of the Gods Product Image

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...

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.

As Loke Falls has given mr goosebumps the first time I heard it. Father of the wolf and the title track are simply masterpieces

An instant classic. By far the best album I've heard in years. These other albums aren't even close.

7 Once Sent from the Golden Hall Once Sent from the Golden Hall Product Image

Not so long ago I voted for Jomsvikings before I listened to this. Seeing how criminally low it is placed on the list, I think this album deserves top 4, and yes, jomsvikings must get out of the top 5

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

8 Fate of Norns Fate of Norns Product Image

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.

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

9 Berserker Berserker Product Image

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.

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!

I bought and listened to the entire thing and It easily became one of my favorite albums! It's so heavy and melodic.

Awesome album, the NWOBHM influences are great and the guitar--and bass work superb

10 The Avenger The Avenger Product Image

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.
