Whilst I never used to like Amon Amarth, their awesome brand of Melodeath and Viking and Norse-culture inspired lyrics gradually enthralled me, and I am now an avid fan of their music (perhaps not so much their albums preceding 'With Oden on Our Side'), and this album was no disappointment. As always seems to happen to me with Amon Amarth albums, I started by particularly loving a single track on the album - 'Father of the Wolf.' This gradually extended to 'Shape Shifter,' 'We Shall Destroy,' 'Blood Eagle' and the title track 'Deceiver of the Gods' until I reached the point in which I loved every track on the album and knew I had to buy it. This is certainly their most melodic release, and probably the best in my opinion, although a very close contender with 'Twilight of the Thunder God,' despite the somewhat noticeable borrowing of the riff for 'Father of the Wolf' from the track 'For Victory or Death' off their previous album (don't worry, it doesn't impact the awesomeness of either track in the slightest). If you are a fan of death, melodeath, or even folk metal I would strongly recommend you to buy this album right now.

Amon Amarth's "Deceiver of the Gods" is an outstanding album. Whilst their sound doesn't take any drastically new directions, the subtle influence of the NWOBHM can be heard throughout, most explicitly on "Father of the Wolf".

This direction is one they've been inching towards ever since their "With Oden On Our Side" album, guitar solos slowly becoming more prominent, and chorus's becoming more catchy and memorable. The guitar solos here are particularly good. Not the most technical of guitar work, but the solos fit into and augment the songs.

Production work is excellent, all the instruments are clear and full, and they avoid the trap of feeling over produced and compressed.

Amon Amarth put me in mind of Bolt Thrower. As well as having some musical similarities (heavy and thunderous riffs, mid paced songs, well enunciated growled vocals), both bands found their sound fairly early in their career, and stuck with it. No attempts to drastically alter the sound, just a continuous refinement and slow advancement of the sound.

So whilst there wont be anything shockingly new here, "Deceiver of the Gods" is an extremely strong, solid and enjoyable album.

I saw a lot of not so good reviews about this one, but for me i can not find a bad Amon Amarth record. OK, one can say that they use a formula and dont change, but i think that its not quite right. With this effort Amon Amarth goes trough a very notable change in their sound getting closer to what we can call of tradicional heavy metal.

It is not a Versus the World, my favorite Amon Amarth album, and does not have a killer track, like Death in Fire or Victorious March, but it works quite well as one strong album.

Favorite tracks: Father of the Wolf, Shape Shifter, Under Siege, Blood Eagle.

Hemets off to Amon Amarth-they have certainly found their settlement in metal. Establishing Viking-themed implications on melodic death metal like no other band have. Within 'Deceiver of the Gods', their signature sound is instantly recognised however beneath the storming riffs, melodious lead guitars and hammering drumming that direct songs such as 'As Loki Falls' and 'Shape Shifter', Amon Amarth have unearthed new found indications of subtlety in their sound; the anthemic chants in 'Blood Eagle' is a prime example of this. Johan Hegg's lyrical composition increases the sense of drama like no other album Amon Amarth have produced before; addressing tales of Viking folklore that adds another layer of significance to what could be the finest album of this band's career. All hail the swedes.

8/10

Amon Amarth is standing the test of time. Some say "consistent", others "repetitive", but 9 albums in and people don't seem to be losing interest.

'Deceiver Of The Gods' is partly more of the same melodic, relentless death metal, but there's definitely a bit more flair and some departures from their typical style here as well. Every now and again it's easy to forget who you're listening to, but then Hegg's unmistakeable vocals and lyrics bring you back.

Standout tracks: 'Shape Shifter', 'As Loke Falls' and the title track itself. 'Hel' is pretty great too. Recommended.

Deciever of the Gods,is not Amon Amarth's most brutal and raw album, it looks like it had a lot o production behind it,looks like it has been polished a lot until it shines,but a great album of course. Amon Amarth dont make bad albums...and this is one of 2013 best.

Tremendous album from start to finish, the perfect companion to any workout. As Loke Falls in particular is a quality tune.
