5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yes ODEN is on our side, 25 Oct. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: With Oden on Our Side (Audio CD)
Got into Amon Amarth after listening to 'Fate of Norns',and what a solid piece of work that is. Along now comes 'With Oden On Our Side' and I can say thank our lucky stars that he is beside us. It took me three listens and then the penny dropped, what a absolute stunning record this is. Quite literally the best metal album of any genre for a longtime. Kicking off with 'valhall Awaits Me' you can almost smell the bloodshed and be glad you are not there. 'Runes To My Memory' has a kind of 'Fate Of Norns' feel a good quality track, 'Hermods Ride To Hel' is stunning. Track 6 'With Oden On Our Side' is arguably the best tune on the record it is an absolute powerblast of heaviness. The chorus is foot stomping stuff which does not go on long enough, but who cares when you got tunes like 'Under The Northern Star' a melancholic master. Every song on this release is an anthem. I dont know how they combine sheer terror heaviness with melody that makes this record especially, and Amon Amarth so listenable and appealing. They are a great band who play intelligent Death metal, they love what they do and you can hear it in their songs, after listening to this nothing is unachievable
