AMON AMMARTH IS A MELODIC DEATH METAL BAND NOT A VIKING METAL,NEITHER MANOWAR.BATHORY & ENSLAVED SHOULD BE AT TOP! - GREYBOYY
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!
Swedish Black Metal band Bathory are considered as the pioneers of Viking Metal. - Nord666
My favorite Black Metal and Viking metal band! The music that Quorthon Created, is just so epic and beautiful that you can just close your eyes and travel to a whole another world. Just go check out some stuff like twilight of the gods / through blood by thunder, ring of god, a fine day to die, father to son, and they're so many masterpieces that I can't count. Just go check it out if you haven't yet. - MoeinTPSV 10 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
The instruments and the vocals are melodic death metal. Viking metal is all really just a lyrical style and these guys only sing about Viking mythology and Vikings pillaging villages.
Viking metal is not a lyrical style. For something to be viking metal they must contain viking themed instrumentals too. - emilk
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.
Look man, amon amarth is a fantastic band and there is no doubt in that. but they are Melodic death metal, not viking metal. viking metal isn't just singing about vikings and boats and stuff. it is a genre, and bathory invented it. - MoeinTPSV 14 Comments

Very good band, I love how they mix Progressive Metal in Black/Viking Metal. - GREYBOYY
As fire swept clean the earth is one of the greatest songs in all of metal. - wolphertV 1 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/V 1 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".
They just sound beautiful and the lyrics are in Icelandic which always sounds great
Thy are the best thy are from Iceland and make great awesome I'm from Iceland my self but there music is unice even though u don't really understand what thy are saying just the sound is amazing

Metal vikingo de guerra a aa a a rrrghgggh h!
Great band but sadly they aren't very famous
One of my Favorit Bands in this Genre.
Månegarm (could someone write it correctly? ) is the best viking metal band ever - hub66
Was a great band but now disbanded.
Windir is in my opinion one of THE best bands of all time, the first two albums were composed and made by a single person. Terje Bakken was a great composer, he made the perfect mic of harsh vocals, and simply beutiful guitar riffs. It's a shame he died at the age of 25.
Windir is most famous for its brutal black and viking metal songs mixed with melodic intervals and both harsh and clean singing in English, Bokmål (standard Norwegian), and Sognamål dialect (native to the origins of the Windir band members). This is known as Sognametal by many fans, and bands from the same area like Sigtyr, Feign, Mistur, and Cor Scorpii continue to play this style to this day. Windir would undoubtedly be a legendary band today if frontman Valfar died in a snowstorm. When band members formed another memorable band known as Vreid, they were very good but lost the Sognametal/viking spark that Valfar had given them. If you've never heard of them, listen to their final 3 albums, considered masterpieces today.
My Grandson love them, and he is only 17 months
Het bier zal weer vloeien!
For fans of Finntroll (and these guys were doing it first! )
The best jerry, the best
Amon Amarth definitely at the top of Viking metal closely followed by king of asgard

They are better than all others period.
