5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deceiver of the Gods (Audio CD)
Amon Amarth never fail to impress me, however this album is undoubtably the best (Joint With Twilight of The Thunder God)that they have yet created. On a par with Twilight of The Thunder God, this takes AA into deeply breakthrough territory. The solo's and drumming are admittedly less fast and energetic, but the guys are getting on a bit, to be fair. The best songs are; Loke Falls, Father of The Wolf, Under Siege and Warriors of The North. Shape Shifter is another good one with a powerful atmosphere and many shifts in mood. Deciever of The Gods is an excellent track in Asator style, but heavier, more polished, and with an inferior solo. The only songs I am not to keen on are Blood Eagle and Hel, the former because of the ridiculous and childish opening (that aside though, it's a good song) and the latter becuase Messiah and Johan's singing styles jar horribly and get on your nerves. These can be forgiven, however because the rest of the album is so brilliantly awesome.
Tracks in order of awesomeness:
Warriors of The North
Loke Falls
Father of The Wolf
Under Siege
Shape Shifter
The Coming of The Tide
Deciever of The Gods
We Shall Destroy
Blood Eagle
Hel

The Second Disc is worth a listen for interest; their not Amon Amarth's good songs but they are interesting. Burning Anvil of Steel in Motorhead's name is the best of these.
All round, this album deserves more acclaim than it's getting; judging by the reviews,all credit to Amazon for sending it a day before it was officially released, 5 shining stars.

The Skirrid says:
The opening of blood eagle is supposed to sound like a blokey getting his chest split open and his lungs draped over his shoulders, AKA the blood eagle.
Vikings are weird.

I think that you will find that Burning Anvil of Steel is their tribute to Judas Priest.
