look again pagan is in there
... I would say it's Death Viking (Metal)...
Viking Metal with "Death-ish" sound....
ehh.. "Melodic Death Metal with a touch of Black Metal metal and Viking Metal lyrics"!
well, theres no one else that really sounds like them, i mean there are similarities, but on the whole, their brand of metal is fairly individual, so i dont think that they can necessarily be completely squeezed into one genre or another
oops, my mistake, too many beers and reading too fast
cookie monster viking melo-death... and yes three stooges is rather good for a pale ale
Well about pagan metal.. anyone heard of Cruachean ?? This irish band is somewhat Pagan or Folk or a mix...
AA is something like: Melodic Viking-Death Metal or vice versa..
If we have to choose one....Viking Death Metal is the best label for Amon Amarth. They have lyrics about Vikings and war....they sing in a Death Metal style....so lets just call them Viking Death Metal and be done with it.
Amon Amarth is definately viking metal... we've gotten that established. But different Viking Metal bands have different influences, Amon Amarth has some Death Metal influences which is reflected by their sound. Thyrfing on the other hand, has some Folk Metal influences, so even though both the bands are Viking Metal, they have completely different sounds
Viking Metal is really more of a lyrical label. The Viking sound that people sometimes speak of is really originally Epic/Folk Metal. Amon Amarth is Melodic Viking Death Metal because they are a Melodic Death Metal Band lyrically dealing with Viking themes and Norse Mythology/Beliefs. It's the same type of thing with the band Nile when they are labeled as Egyptian Death Metal.
Shut The Fuck Up God Damnit Noone Realy Cares What Type Of Fucking Metal Amon Amarth Is!! Your All A Bunch Of Fucking Troll Spammers!!!!!!!
I always bring out the best in people.
Well we're all agreed on one thing. Amon are one of the greatest bands ever put together.
You're right there Thorshammer. Who really gives a shit who's labeled what, it's really up to the individual when you get down to it and it's the music that really counts.
AA has a "unique" style of metal and it's members are "unique" too... and the fans on this board are rather "unique" too!!
That's the best definition I've heard yet.
