    first of all : i think there's already a thread about the same thing, i don't seem to find it, if moderators can find it, feel free to move this one there.

    SO with the new Surtur Rising i guess the "Best 10 Amon Amarth songs List" has changed for some people, post here ur new order.

    For me it goes like this (even though it's VERY hard to do it :p )

    1. Victorious March
    2. Doom Over Dead Man
    3. Gods of War Arise
    4. Embrace of the Endless Ocean
    5. Fate Of Norns
    6. Amon Amarth
    7. The Last Stand of Frej
    8. Under the Northern Star
    9. Across the Rainbow Bridge
    10. For Victory or Death

    3. Once sealed in blood
    4. Wrath of the norsemen

    Can I partake in this thread even though I'm missing Crusher and Avenger? :lol:

    10. Friends of the Suncross
    9. Across the Rainbow Bridge
    8. Ride For Vengeance
    7. Doom Over Dead Man
    6. Death in Fire
    5. Runes to My Memory
    4. Free Will Sacrifice
    3. Thousand Years of Oppression
    2. Cry of the Black Birds
    1. Embrace of the Endless Ocean


    That's a good enough list for now. I've been on a thrash binge lately, so I haven't been listening to Amon Amarth all that much, so I'm a bit rusty when it comes to their music. :lol:

    Am I the only person who thinks Death in Fire is a vastly overrated song?

    yes



    seriously though, I like it, but can of course not say for everyone else

    I like it enough that could I be bothered to list the top 10 songs I would want for the next live show, it would be in there

    not anymore, it was one of my fav. at one time but now it just got old due to too many listens

    1000 years is by far the best AA song, too bad no one thinks that at the live shows, followed of course by Victorious

    1. Hermod's Ride to Hel - Loke's Treachery Part I
    2. Thousand Years of Oppression
    3. Doom Over Dead Man
    4. Victorious March
    5. Embrace of the Endless Ocean
    6. Twilight of the Thunder God
    7. Prediction of Warfare
    8. Fate of Norns
    9. Cry of the Blackbirds
    10. A Beast Am I

    In all honesty, as a fan, it is very difficult to make a top ten list for AA. I like all of their songs. If I had to make a list right now it would be the one above. Tomorrow it might be different. My number one pick would probably stay the same though.

    it is indeed difficult to choose a top ten list from all their material. It's far easier to choose a top five from each album. so hard to choose
    just queue up the discography and load AgeofConan Mount&bladeWarband or Oblivion:headbang: stabbin good times

    In no particular order:

    Abandoned
    Across the Rainbow Bridge
    Thousand Years of Oppression
    Victorious March
    Twilight of the Thunder God (best solo)
    Varyags of Miklagaard
    Cry of the Blackbirds
    Live for the Kill (if only for the Apocalyptica bit at the end :))
    The Fate of Norns
    The Last Stand of Frej

    The Last Stand of Frej is the only song that I find truly outstanding on their new album, but every song on that album has its moments; so many epic riffs and really nice solos. I'm glad that Amon Amarth have managed to retain such good form for such a long time, unlike a lot of other bands.
