Best Amon Amarth Songs

The Top Ten
1 Twilight of the Thunder God

This is Amon Amarth's breakthrough song. That soul crushingly awesome riff is so epic and wicked, anyone who listens to it will fall in love with Amon Amarth instantly. I am listening to it while typing this. Seriously, I feel like a god when I listen to this.

By far their best song. The song that introduced me to Amon Amarth... Instrumentally-wise I'd say it's amazing, which make it the most appealing to me, the theme is also great because I happen to be a fan of mythology, and the guest guitar solo by Roope Latvala... Icing on the cake

Dude, this it clearly their best song, you can't imagine how awesome it is, I think who listens to that magical piece would give up of everything and fall in love with it!

I didn't have this in my top 10 at first. But I came back to it and gave it a listen. I'm sold. While it may not be my favorite AA or my go to song off that album, it may just be their best song.

2 The Pursuit of Vikings

This one just rocks. I like its drive, the riffs and the lyrics are super cool. It is far less melodic than most of their songs, giving it a kind of rough and strong undercurrent.

The best their song no questions. One of the best death metal songs ever if not the best. This song is great begin of every day.. What can be better than some viking metal

This song started me out on Amon Amarth. definitely my number one. Great lyrics but every song by them has great lyrics so it isn't saying much haha. I don't know dude I love this song.

The moment you hear that intro riff you are already starting to feel like a damn viking! For me it's definitely the best Amon Amarth song!

3 Cry of the Blackbirds

For some reason this song sounds similar to "Washington is next! " by megadeth, but this song is way better. This should take first place. This is not just my favorite Amon Amarth song, this is my favorite song.

Just perfect in each way. There is no song, which is more complex and gets deeper in your heart and brain as this brilliant master peace of work.

Really underrated song... It must be in top three... Starting of this song is awesome... Must listen this song...

Raise your swords up high because this song's brilliant!

4 Death in Fire

Although this song isn't really one of my favorites, I feel it should get this high of a rank. Death in Fire is the Amon Amarth song. It just is. It is Amon Amarth. It was the guaranteed show finale for the band for a really long time, and encases basically everything that makes Amon Amarth stand out as a band. It's also really really catchy and the lyrics are easy to remember.

I'm Am so Pissed Its number 8 top 3 at least any Amon amarth fan waits for this song when they play. Death in fire is the song that sums up the band known as Amon Amarth... Maybe Pursuit Of Vikings laugh out loud

I listen to this song so many time I can't get it out of my head I love it so much I even got the tabs for it. Haven't started playing yet but I love listening to it. Ps what a really good Amplfyier

This was the song that got me into Amon Amarth. Gotta love the intro and tapping section in this song!

5 Guardians of Asgaard

This is Amarth's best song in my opinion. Johan Hegg and Lars Göran Petrov are doing a wonderful work together and the chorus is just amazing. I hope we get to hear more from them both together!

The riffs are killers! Very strong music, and to me, the best one of Amon Amarth!

A really catchy riff and great lyrics, this should be up! Definitely!

This is the best. Absolutely awesome.

6 Runes to My Memory

I love cry of the blackbirds twilight of the thunder god guardians of asgaard under the northern stars embrace of the endles ocean pursuit of the viking... But I chose runes to my memory because thanks to this song I m a fan of amon amarth

This song got me into Amon Amarth. So many good ones to choose from.

Most underrated Amon Amarth song ever. So much emotion...

This song is definitely one of Amon Amarth's best. Should be top 5 at least

7 Deceiver of the Gods

I love everything about this song. I love then it's hilarious I love that it's hard I love it as powerful and I love the vocals and the guitar sound. It's one of my favorite metal songs of all time and it is my favorite Amon Amarth song.

First Amon amarth song I heard and the first time I ever heard growling in metal and loved it. It was like an eye opener for me because I finally understood the appeal of death metal.

This deserves to be on the 5's. cause this song has a great riff and the Intro and the chorus is just mind blowing compared to the other songs of Amon Amarth. Plus one of the greatest songs in the Genre Melodic Death Metal. cheers

This song should at least be at the top tens! Come on, this is from their new album and it is a masterpiece!

8 War of the Gods

I would rate as my first choice.. After initial albums I was so overwhelmed I did not know what else to expect then I found war of the gods. And it blew me away. Amon amarth thanks for existing else I would have never known music can be so melodious yet so stunning. You rock guys

I would expect this to be an AWESOME live song and this is my favorite from AA. It has real heaviness and some "beautiful" parts too.

Excellent song. Without a doubt their best. The sheer musical end of the song is by far the best they're ever done, even after Deceiver of the Gods!

I couldn't stop listening to the song when I heard it the first time. I've like their other songs, but I LOVE this one.

9 Raise Your Horns

An absolute hymn, especially live a killer. Great song overall

How is this so low? Such an epic song!

10 Shield Wall

This song feels like it's the new Pursuit of Vikings. Definitely going to be one if the most played and demanded songs in Amon Amarth's concerts going forward.

The Contenders
11 The Way of Vikings

Super underratted and absolutely the best song in the album. No idea why First Kill and Raise Your Horns are both more popular but The Way of Vikings is just better.

Really badass and intense song!

This song just rocks

12 First Kill
13 Crack the Sky
14 Father of the Wolf

My personal favorite from Deceiver of the Gods. The vocals, the drums, the bass and the guitar all sounds amazing and create this badass and intense song.

I agree it should be on the top ten maybe even top five. I mean great vocals, awesome guitar work and awesome lyrics if that's not top five material than I don't know what is

This is their newly released song. so I think with time it will climb up the list. Awesome song. I can't stop listening to it.

This is by far their best they have ever made!

15 As Loke Falls

Criminally underrated on this list... Quintessential metallic riff, simple but hammers in the point.

Will leave you on your feet and with your fists in the air!

This song has the best guitar. It's like a mixture of power metal and melodic death metal. This song is a great song from their new album!

Fast and aggressive; Not recommended to listen this song while driving!

Needs more credit than it gets.

16 Embrace of the Endless Ocean

This song is probably the best thing I have ever heard. The lyrics match the melody perfectly. And in addition to that... When he screams "Father, I die alone" you can hear the emotions, the grief, the sadness and anger all in one. Such a sad and yet powerful song. I find myself at a loss for words to describe how awesome it is.
P.S. This is the song that got me into Amon Amarth, at first I didn't like them. Hard to belive, huh?

This should definitely be in the top three. In my opinion it's their best song. It seems so epic, it's like an Amon Amarth Rime Of The Ancient Mariner. Makes me feel like I'm on some sort of epic adventure or a great voyage.

This song makes me cry as it's pulsating brutal beauty and poetic sadness wash over me. He will never see the frozen lakes nor forests of his homeland, nor feel the wind against his face as he dies alone at sea. masterpiece

This song has such a wonderful lyrics lore. I love how Amon Amarth can make you have some cinematic things inside your brain. Really underrated song, should be at top 5.

17 Warriors of the North

How is this not even in the top 10?

My favorite song by them

18 Under the Northern Star

This song has everything that a melodic death metal song should have; melody, passion, impeccable growling, and a phenomenal guitar solo. This song is just perfect. There's no other words to describe it, and in my opinion, is their best song, for its beauty and brutality.

Melodic death metal - pure and captivating. As a single it is their most captivating track and in context to the album, it caps off a masterpiece.

This song is beautifully composed. It makes this list having been a tough choice between that and Prediction of Warfare for my #10.

Their best song. Its also one of the best I ever heard! Maybe even the best! Its probably most metal song ever! Under the Northern Star

19 Ironside
20 The Fate of Norns

This song makes me almost cry every time. Brilliant composition and awesome lyrics! Should be on the top... This made me fall in love with Amon Amarth

This should be at least in the Top 5, for crying out loud! It's the most clasic song of Amon Amarth ever! Come On! Vote for the Fate of Norns now! Please!

Fate of Norns is deffinitely their best song! This song makes me almost cry, it has a lot of feeling in its lyrics!

13th? Seriously? This composition is their best work, lyrically even. Vote this up.

21 Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags

If I had to choose one catchy guitar riff that stands above all other catchy Amon Amarth guitar riffs, then this is the one. A visceral pacing that immerses you on a battlefield surrounded by fire giants, Valhalla warriors, and maybe a troll or two. Odin almighty, I love this song!

Not only is this the best song, by far, to march into battle listening to, I swear by it as a cure for hangovers. Seriously. Try it.

I don't see why this isn't number 1. Yeah it's based on opinion but honestly this song has great lyrics and rhythm.

Great song. This was the first song I listened to off this album and at one point my favorite from this album.

22 Raven's Flight

No words can truly describe the brilliance that was displayed in this song. The riffs are awesome, the melody is out of this world.

One of the best songs of the album, an album that already has some incredible songs.

This song is gonna get up in the top 10 in no time, it's so good. The drums and the guitar riffs are killer m/

Best song in my opinion

23 Mjölner, Hammer of Thor
24 Gods of War Arise

Awesome lyrics...
The song depicts the true viking nature of the band...
The lyrics, the riffs along with the guitar solos, thundering drums and awesome vocals just takes your breath away...
An addictive song... Must be in top 5 or top 7

This needs to at least be above varyags of miklagaard since that song steals the riff from this one.

Got into AA when this album came out. Set the tone for why I love this band.
