    HI!!
    I don't know if there are other topics like that (I think not),
    so I wuold ask if you can give me the names of other bands like AA (or like Thyrfing)
    I'm sure that no bands can reach our AA! They are the best!
    But ...anyway...try to tell me something! thanks thanks

    well we've talked a little while ago about a viking death metal band called UNLEASHED which i find is pretty good... i only know the last album called Sworn allegiance which is cool, aparently the band's first 3 albums are really good too..
    but for bands like thryrfing which are more Viking/folk metal there's also one of the most famous ones: Finntroll
    you should also try out Einherjer, it has clear vocals though.. :p
    and i personnally like Nordisches Blut, its more black metalish... and there are many others :cool:

    Unleashed sound reminds me "nothing" of AA sound. Unleashed, those were the good old days, aaahhhh, I miss the early ninties or perhaps I'm just getting old.

    interesting though, those bands are topically similar to AA. I have yet to see a band with a really similar sound though. Battlesword rips them off, and burden of grief, maybe a little, but really AA's brand of death metal is fairly unique.

    I dont know all the bands on the lists you people post, but i get the feeling none of them sound anything like AA.

    Face it, AA's sound and lyrics have a unique quality to them that i find other bands harldy even come close to.

    Jupiter2 this is Alpha control do you copy?

    I suggest you open yr ears then because there are dozens of really talented bands out there, with very unique sound. Lucky enough not all of them are signed on metalblade.

    This was in reply to you saying that "Face it, AA's sound and lyrics have a unique quality to them that i find other bands harldy even come close to." which is utterly wrong. Hence I suggest you start listening to bands other than bands available on big labels. In case you haven't done so already. Apparently you have not because most bands we listed didn't sound familiar to you.

    AA's sound is unique, but AA is not the only band out there that has talent or for that matter captures the "viking" theme so well.
