    Was lookin' at your list dude, reminded me of a band I've been meaning to get into. Sick of the same old shit, and thought some Viking metal may be just what the doctor ordered! Anyone recommend to me Amon Amarth's best works (best album and some good songs?). Cheers in advance!

    Well to recommened something from Amon Amarth I find it quite hard because for the last 10 years they've been playing the same stuff, they haven't changed anything in their music only the lyrics about different subjects in the Norse Mythology, but I'd recommened Twilight of the Thunder God as an album and as a song, that's one of my favorite AA songs.

    With Oden on Our Side is probably one of the best AA albums , but they really have some good songs spread out across the catelog.

    Victorious March and Without Fear from Once Sent From The Golden Hall is great, alot of songs from Versus the World (I couldn't get into the Avenger or The Crusher as much), some of Fate of Norris is ok, but Oden and Twlight are really good, and surtur rising is ok imo.

    Agreed somewhat. Twilight is accessible as well.


    Asator is one hell of a pit song.

    Nothing beats AA's tremolo riffs, simple as that.
    Nothing beats Arrival Of The Fimbul Winter (Versus the World re-record version) and Thousand Years of Oppression. I fucking love AA to be honest, especially VTW. Didn't really love Surtur Rising though, but there was a few really good tracks.

    It's like Anders says...

    "You can tell gays by their faces
    There are always signs..."

    I actually had to google what does a hobbit look like. That is how unfamiliar I am with the whole LOTR thing. :p

    On topic for a moment (I know, wtf?) the chorus for SOAPF (title track) is lyrically probably the best thing they've done since Clayman. It's a real glimpse as to what Anders was (and still is) capable of when he isn't whining about being misunderstood. The title track is really strong as a whole, great opening, solid verses, a chorus that actually sounds good despite the clean sung vocals and an excellent solo.

    Really? I mean I think it's great, but I'd probably say a lot from Come Clarity and Reroute are better lyrically.

    I like most of the Come Clarity lyrics, but they're very direct. Nothing wrong with that neccessarily, but I wouldn't say they were especially creative.

    I've never believed R2R's lyrics to be great. Possibly because compared to Clayman they're stripped down, but a lot of the lines on Reroute don't resonate with me. Anders has tried to be clever on songs like R2R (title track), Trigger, Minus, Dismiss the Cynics... but to me there are too many empty lyric lines that can be interpreted in too many ways. A lot of the R2R lyrics seem to lack a distinct focus, whereas SOAPF's lyrics are generally very focused.

    To be fair, R2R has nothing as poor as "And I don't care what you think!!!! Or maybe I do :cry:" ... but I was only talking about the SOAPF chorus anyway :D
