Amarth is now back with their new disc “With Oden On Our Side.”
They have been entertaining audiences and pleasing those into the more extreme
metal genres for years. These guys always put out brilliant discs and “With
Oden On Our Side” is no different. Whatever genre you call Amon Amarth,
Viking death, death/black, or battle metal they continue to write their
high quality brand of Swedish death, and they don’t run out of new
headbanging, hard hitting, and horn raising riffs. There are masses of memorable,
appealing riffs. I love Amon Amarth’s sound and I have for years;
I can’t get enough! Lyrically they continue their Viking mythology,
which adds to their already powerful record. An album of the year candidate
for sure! These nine tunes and over forty-two minutes were recorded at Fascination
Street Studios with the only producer they have worked with, Jens Bogren.
Everything is fine with the production, as one would expect. Amon Amarth
already have an amazing catalogue of tunes, expect more in the future. There
are no signs of these berserkers slowing down!
