I am not much of a death metal fan, but I like this, i like this a lot. I got into this band after watching 'fate of norns' on DVD and decided to buy the album and give it a go. It did not disappoint. If you are looking to try some death metal then start here. This record is very listenable and installs in you a sense of chest beating pride. Just hide all your weapons in your house from yourself in case you go out and use them on the local chavs. Happy hunting.

Ok maybe I haven't heard hundreds of extreme metal albums but I've heard a fair few to safely say this is probably the best album I have ever heard. The songs are heavy but very accessible. Don't let anything I say put you off please. Listen to the Beheading of a King or Fate of Norns and agree with me. Its a bit Bathory or late Immortal in places so if you like Hammerheart or Sons of Northern Darkness you should love this. I strongly recommend it. (...)

The 5th album from Swedish melodic death/viking metal masters, Amon Amarth, Fate of Norns is another journey into the past lives, myths and legends of the Vikings.
Fate of Norns had a lot to live up to after the release of the phenomenal 'Versus the World' which is, quite simply, one of the greatest albums i've ever heard.
The album starts well with 'Ancient Sign of Coming Storm' and 'Where Death Seems to Dwell' but it really kicks off with 'Fate of Norns'. I couldn't believe a death metal vocalist could get so much emotion into a song about the death of a young son but Johan Hegg manages it with seeming ease. One of the highlights of the album is 'Pursuit of Vikings', it has a perfect intro and a very catchy riff followed by a shout along chorus that show what Amon Amarth are capable of when firing on all cylinders. For me, things start to tail off a bit with 'Valkyries Ride'...I just really don't like the chorus on this one! This is followed by 'Beheading of a King', another decent song before we get another example of perfect Amon Amarth. Slowing it right down but still catchy as hell 'Arson' is the story of a group of men whose village is attacked by bandits. This is followed up by 'Once Sealed in Blood', a song about the revenge sought by a survivor against the raiders who attacked his village.
This album features a couple of Amon Amarth's best songs to date but, unfortunately, doesn't quite stand up to Versus the World for sheer enjoyment. If you are new to Amon Amarth you should enjoy this immensely. If you are an old hand i think you'll enjoy this but it won't take away the place of 'Versus' in your CD player. I agree with the previous reviewer that Amon Amarth are a pretty accessible extreme metal band (Versus the World and Fate of Norns moreso than their earlier works) so give them a try if you want something fast, hard n heavy but not too brutal.

This is the first album I've heard in it's entirety by Amon Amarth and I found it to be great. The production is top-notch and the music itself is definitely to my taste.

Would recommend.
