Do my ear decieve me? Viking metal, one of the most Scandinavian of all Scandinavian metals, played by a band from the lands of Emo and Nu Metal????? yup, I guess so, and, perhaps even more surrisingly, they're not 'alf bad!

Now, lets not beat around the bush. Anyone familiar with Ensiferum or Wintersun will know exactly whats going on with Hammer Horde. Slick Viking metal with power and melodic death influences, atmoshperic keys, and both growled and sung vocals. It's not that they're a complete clone, but Hammer Horde don't really bring anything new to the already very popular sound they offer, aside from having some VERY spandexy power metal singing. Maybe there's a touch of Bal-Sagoth as well... However, they are very good at what they do, and I'd think most Ensiferum and Wintersun fans would actually get quite a kick out of Hammer Horde. The song writing is prety good, as they manage to pull off a lot of longer 6-8 minutes songs without getting boring, and the guitar playing definetly ticks all the air-guitar boxes with some really great Maiden-tribute style riffing going on here and there and a very nice interplay between the two guitars in places. And I do always have a bit of a soft spot for those harmonised tremelo riffs. The vocals are also consistently strong, woth a nice black metal screech most of the time and some cheast-beating, full on power metal clean singing ala Manowar that fits perfectly. There's even some flutes and a bit of a Celtic jig on 'Triumph of Sword and Shield'. The only thing they're lacking is originality and a bit of individuality. Actually, its a bloody great album when i think about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Viking Metal from the US of A? Yes! 15 April 2009
By Thor NH - Published on Amazon.com
These guys are from Ohio but sound like they come from the forests of Finland. I'll keep this review short and simple. If you like bands like Ensiferum, Wintersun, Amon Amarth, Turisas, Wulfgar, etc. you should definitely give these guys a chance. For a debut album it is extremely well put together. So, again if you like Epic/Black/Death/Pagan/Viking metal give this on a whirl. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Vikings have invaded Ohio! 24 July 2010
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The warriors descended, hammers held high and screaming their dedication to Odin, from the frost-covered plains of...Toledo, Ohio? When the Hell did Middle America become home to epic Viking metal? Well, I can't say the boys in Hammer Horde don't take it seriously. With their grim, bearded demeanors, black outfits (complete with animal skins and capes) and Thor's hammer pendants, they certainly look the part of modern day Vikings. Does the music on their debut album Under the Mighty Oath hold up to their European brethren? Read on.

Under the Mighty Oath is a black/death/pagan metal hybrid that recalls the titans of the genre, owing much to bands like Amon Amarth (naturally), Ensiferium, and to some extent Turisas and even Borknagar and Children of Bodom (sans keyboards). As soon as the obligatory instrumental introductory track concludes, the album launches into a series of blood-drenched odes to battle and glory that seamlessly weave crushing death metal heaviness, blistering black metal ferocity, and pagan metal melodies and instrumentals. Most of the songs on Under the Mighty Oath feature harsh, screamed vocals, but the occasional clean vocals add diversity and make me think of Vintersorg trading vocal lines with Alexi Laiho! The lyrics to these battle anthems are positively crammed with Norse lore, and reflect just how dedicated Hammer Horde is to authenticity and the true spirit of their chosen form of metal.

I have to raise a toast (though sadly, not a tankard of mead) to Hammer Horde for embracing this distinctly European style of metal so enthusiastically while at the same time putting their own stamp on it. If you're a fan of Viking and/or pagan metal, you would do well to give Under the Mighty Oath a listen. If songs like "Pierced By Odin's Spear", "Triumph of Sword and Shield" and the 9-minute epic "Seafarer" aren't enough to convince you that Hammer Horde is the real deal, you may want to turn in your war hammer.
