    The Swedish Viking Gods are Back!!

    Somewhere the gods of war are smiling with the release of Amon Amarth's "hair spinning" new album "Twilight of the Thunder God"!! Johan Hegg's growl sounding better than ever (is just me or his voice geting deeper), and Guitars crashing like Thor's hammer with their heavy riffs and melodic tremolo picking! There's nothing really to complain about with this release. Though I don't think "Twilight of the Thunder God" to be as epic as Amon Amarth's last album "With Oden on Our Side" but the variety of styles on "Twilight of the Thunder God" are awesome! With the Heavy riffs of Free Will Sacrifrice and No Fear For The Setting Sun to the Viking Melodies of Guardians Of Asgaard and Varyags Of Miklagaard. Then finishing up the album with the epics Live For The Kill (with guests Apocalyptica adding a nice ambiance towards the end of the song before the roaring finish) and Embrace Of The Endless Ocean! On top of all that audio goodness there is a DVD bundled in with the album! The DVD is Amon Amarth's performance at the Summer Breeze Festival in Germany! Surprisingly the DVD has fantastic audio and camera work for being just a free bonus! With such an excellent arrangement of styles theres sure to be something for everyone here, newcomers and die hard fans alike! Prepare For Battle!! With Amon Amarth's Newest Album!!! Viking Horns Up \m/ !!

    The world of Heavy Metal knows that the words melodic and heavy do coexist and have coexisted since early Black Sabbath. Despite what some professional critics might say, melodic Heavy Metal exists and is well represented by many Metal bands of all Metal genres. Step in please, Amon Amarth! "Twilight Of The Thundergod" is melodic & heavy Death Metal that embodies the lyrics of cool Viking tales and lore. The Viking, Melodic & Heavy Death Metal is pronounced with authority here, Amon Amarth has created an undisputedly awe inspiring arrangement of songs with this album. The lyrics are intelligent and fun with riffs galore, thunderous blast beats and chugging, growling vocals. Apocalyptica performs beautifully on "Live For The Kill". Yes, the word beautiful can be attributed here, it is o.k. to have cellos appear in Heavy Metal. When arrangements allow, you can create any kind of incredible Metal, music is truly infinite and Amon Amarth have proven this. Roope Latvala appears on "Twilight Of The Thundergod", carving into this song an amazing solo that enhances the total heavy musical structure. I most highly recommend "Twilight Of The Thundergod" to all Metal fans worldwide! Listen and enjoy the melodic heaviness of this Death Metal band. Amon Amarth gets my standing ovation for this album, it definitely is one of the best Metal albums of 2008 and mightily one of the heaviest as well. Amon Amarth is: Johan Hegg on vocals, Olavi Mikkonen on guitar, Ted Lundstrom on bass, Johan Soderberg on guitar and Fredrik Andersson on drums.

    Twilight of the Thunder God is my favorite Amon Amarth record. Johan Hegg's classic growl sounds great, especially on the title track. Guardians of Asgard and Free Will Sacrifice are also stellar tracks. If you enjoy Amon Amarth, buy this album.
