    I like the newer stuff as well but keep thinking the older albums have more of the raw recording vibe. The new material appears too clean to my ears.

    I really like the rawness of the older stuff. The new stuff is too polished in my opinion. I do love all the albums as well though.

    Poor Fate of Norns... There are three songs I do really like on the album though;

    An Ancient Sign...
    Fate of Norns
    Pursuit of Vikings

    This album could have been bad news for AA coming after Versus the World. Since it is the album right in the middle of their catalog I consider it a bridge between the old and new Amon Amarth. It is amazing how it is sandwiched between, arguably, their two best albums Versus... and With Oden...

    So, what's your #1 pre and post Fate of Norns songs? Really tough but I'll pick...

    Wow, this is tough... Screw it. I'll go with the father and son team of Oden and Thor.

    Pre would have to be Thousand Years of Oppression
    and Post would be Twilight of the Thunder God

    1.With Oden on our Side
    2. Twilight of the Thunder God , Surtur Rising , Deceiver of the Gods , Fate of Norns , The Avenger , The Crusher , Once Sent From the Golden Hall , Versus the World

    I can tell you my favourite , but I will never figure out the least favourite , I LOVE THEM ALL . Own all the albums , got Olavi´s face tattooed on my arm , the logo on my chest... and I also really love Fate of Norns , and can't understand why you guys dislike it so much.

    Ill also do my favourite songs just for the fuck of it...

    1. Embrace of the Endless Ocean (this gives goosebumps on my dick)
    2. Hermod´s Ride to Hel - Loke´s Treachery Part II
    3. The Last with Pagan Blood
    4. Prediction of Warfare
    5. Under Siege
    6. Victorious March
    7. Where Silent Gods Stand Guard
    8. An Ancient Sign of Coming Storm
    9. North Sea Storm
    10. Töck´s Taunt - Loke´s Treachery Part II

    But then again , I could put all their songs on the second place after Embrace of the Endless Ocean . Also , I seem to be the only one who ever heard the song "Tale of a Banished Man" , from The Avenger , the last song if I am not mistaken .

    In my opinion FoN is really underrated. To me "Once sealed in blood" is a killer song as well.

    Pre: Death in fire
    Post: Cry of the blackbirds

    Ah Hel. In the end we all know we'd probably pick an AA song over just about anything. If you are like me you have tons of metal, and other music, that you have to listen to, so much that you may never get through all if it in your lifetime. But when it comes down to it there are just a handful of bands that I always go back to and AA has been at the top of that list for quite some time.

    I always have my trusty old 8GB mp3 player with me wherever I go. Almost daily I rotate music on and off of it but AA always stays on. There's usually 700-800 songs on it. Ironically today when I hit the "shuffle all" button the very first song that played was "Where Death Seems to Dwell" off of FoN. I listened to it and, you know, it's not a bad song. Hel, I even like Metalwrath off of The Avenger! I can see Johan back in the day, "Guys, I've got writer's block. Can't think of any lyrics for this new song. Screw it. I'll just sing the titles of all the songs we've ever written! Skol!"
