Now and again there comes a band which has been around for quite a few years, barely unheard of until one album (previous offering, Twilight of the Thunder God) gets the metal media's attention, and that bands popularity increases tenfold. Some call this 'selling out', I call it 'matching the money to the music'.
Amon Amarth are such a band, but this band, like Motorhead, haven't changed their style or sound (see Children of Bodom).

Amon Amarth have stuck to their roots of heavy mid-paced metal, lyrics telling stories of Viking battles, Norse mythology, Gods, victories and legends.
So if you're already a fan of Amon Amarth and have enjoyed their previous albums then you'll know what to expect without any letdowns, I assure you.
For those of you who are new listeners to Amon Amarth you can expect 3 - 6 minute-long heavy songs containing melodic guitar parts, lots of double bass drumming, deep gutteral vocals and catchy choruses. If you like one Amon Amarth album, then you're sure to like them all. A unique band with a unique style, a great back-catalogue of albums, with Surtur Rising being very welcomed into sitting amongst the best of them.

Amon Amarth have been on an upward trend over the last few studio albums, rising from relative unkowns to cult heroes to a genuine big deal, especially with the previous two albums which launched the band into the wider public consciousness and resultantly lead this album to be one of metal's most anticipated albums in years.

The band do not disappoint and deliver more of their trademark Norse themed, twin guitar melodic death metal from the beginning of the album to the end. The songs are as catchy yet savage as ever, the musicianship is phenomenal (especially guitar solos) and the production job is top notch making the album sound absolutely fantastic on all levels.

Whether you enjoy the album or not will depend largely on whether you have had enough of the Amon Amarth formula, this album presents no large shift in musical direction and no abandoning of the lyrical or vocal styles associated with the band up until this point and what you get is essentially another Amon Amarth record along the same lines as the previous two, with all the technical and songwriting progress the band had made until that point.

Should you have tired of this forumla then by all means, feel free to give Surtur Rising a miss, but if you haven't then this album is something you will want to be getting in on as soon as possible.

Opener 'War Of The Gods,' and the fast and dramatic 'A Beast Am I' are easily among the best songs the band have released in recent years, and the album draws to a close with the grand and melodic 'Doom Over Dead Men,' which distills perfectly everything Amon Amarth have come to represent.

In summary if you want a flawless sounding, perfectly executed Amon Amarth record, with great songs, great musicianship and the trademark Amon Amarth sound then Surtur Rising will not disappoint.

Well...any album that has "War of the Gods" as an opener is simply destined to be a masterpiece! From now on, I can imagine their concerts opening with this new instant classic! From the very first second the beast is unleashed: a great riff leads to a thundering double-bass attack and an in-your face approach. The bridge of the song is followed by an amazing epic melody and refrain; and if this is not enough, you also get a great middle part with more great riffs until the final solo (which is just spot on)! Sheer brilliance! Memorable, compact, and very effective! Amon Amarth just shouts we are still here, strong as ever, inspired and inspiring and we deliver the goods! "Töck's Taunt - Loke's Treachery Part II" that follows is a heavy and more mid-tempo song with a melancholic atmosphere. "Destroyer of the Universe" is a track which justifies its title. Fast, heavy, and aggressive (again there is great riffing throughout). "Slaves of Fear" is another great song with a very good riff and overall progression (nice melodies, refrain, solo etc.). The same goes for "Live without Regrets".

These guys have really perfected their composition skills. They have found their own formula and stick to it. Without repeating themselves, they always come up with 2-3 amazing riffs, an epic and brilliant melody, put them together and end up with a perfect song each time! I will not mention every member individually because each one is the unique element which comprises a perfect team. Technical, effective and massively talented!

"The Last Stand of Frej" starts at a slow pace and with a very nice melody which you can sing along. It includes an `Amon Amarth meets Sabbath' part, it has a very melodic solo and it ends with a great riff and guitar work.

Well, when you start thinking theres nothing good going on in death metal anymore just take a journey with Amon Amarth and allow these Norse metal warriors to pummel and pillage your very being. A bit slow on the uptake, to my shame, Ive been seeing these guys shirts more and more at the festivals this year so the time came to get involved.

Incredible!! Not since the mighty Death or sometimes Carcass have I been so blown away by ferocious riffs and drums yet hypnotised by the catchy melodies which worm their way inside and resurface at the most inopportune moments. Singing Destroyer Of The Universe, headphones on, unaware of work colleagues nearby was a very funny moment. They just dont get it hahaha.

Surtur Rising absolutely slays from the blistering first track to its triumphant end and has great lyrics, great musicianship and classy, tasty lead guitar work. Im off to buy up the back catalogue now.

I suggest you get involved. Immediately!!!
