    I feel like I should have put With Oden on Our Side up higher on my list. I just had a listen and realised just how good that album really is. :confused:

    Indeed. Would love to hear "Gods of war arise" at a live show.

    You should have gone to the Bloodshed Over Bochum concerts ;) They played it one night, after the Avenger or Crusher set can't remember which one.

    You might get lucky next tour!

    As for Fate Of Norns, of course there are some really good songs on there, but not as many or as good as every other album :p Arson is my favourite on the album along with Fate Of Norns.

    Favourite track Pre Fate of norns: Victorious March/Without Fear/Amon Amarth/Dragon's Flight Across the waves. Way to hard to pick a favourite.

    Favourite Tracks Post Fate of Norns: Slaves of Fear/Live for The Kill/Embrace the Endless Ocean/Gods of War Arise.

    Again, cant pick just one.

    That's fair, absolutely, we all have different tastes. You like the raw sound, I have a bit of a rough time with it, but not so as to it being unpleasant, far from it! I like what I hear. - I'm just saying that I personally would like to hear the older ones in a "not-so-raw" and renewed sound. If you don't, you'd still have the rawer sounding CDs to listen to.

    Arson..?? Lovely song it is.. I think FoN is not at all a weak album..

    I'd put 'Versus the World' on top of my list because that's where it all started for me..

    I found this difficult. Although I have never really enjoyed Fate Of Norns that much in comparison to the others.

    1) Once Sent From the Golden Hall
    2) With Oden On Our Side
    3) Surtur Rising
    4) Twilight of the Thundergod
    5) Versus The World
    6) Deceiver of the Gods
    7) The Avenger
    8) The Crusher
    9) Fate of Norns

    Im embarrassed to admit I have only heard their 4 most recent albums so far. I only got into them when 'With Oden on our Side' was released and have yet to visit their back catalog. I have heard Death in Fire and The Pursuit of Vikings though which are excellent.

    Anyway, my list:

    01. Deceiver of the Gods

    Controversial choice? Maybe, but IMO every song is fantastic, full of amazing riffs and melodies, powerful vocals and great songs. This album knocked my next choice off the top spot.

    02. With Oden on our Side

    Again this album is chock full of classic songs with great riffs and melodies, I can listen to it all the way through no problem. Runes to my Memory was the first AA song I heard which got me hooked, and Gods of War Arise for me is one of their best songs.

    03. Surtur Rising

    This album contains a lot of quality songs like the previous 2 but in the middle it does lose a bit of potency IMO although it finishes up on the excellent Doom Over Dead Man. The cover songs are great too.

    04. Twilight of the Thunder God

    This album is certainly the weakest as far as im concerned. My main problem with it is the songs feel like b-sides to 'Oden, they lack catchy riffs and hooks, and are far less interesting to listen to. There are a few tracks which stand out (the title track, Free Will Sacrifice, Tattered Banners And Bloody Flags, Live for the Kill) but the rest are quite dull. Another problem is the vocals are mixed a little lower in the mix which doesnt help. I will say this album is great to listen to when running though, but any other time I normally choose from the other 3.

    What I would do to experience this again.
    I remember when I discovered the band back in 2003-04 and I went through the back catalogue and was blown away, what an experience it was.

    I'd recommend "With Oden on our Side" and / or "Versus the World" as a start.

    I agree with what AndY said. Those albums would be perfect to start with.

    Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    What tipped the scale for me was indeed vs. so that will (likely) always hold up as the best of their albums, as opinions go...
