My God, Amon Amarth simply cannot go wrong. They have a certain formula that is utterly untouchable by others. Im a fan of the old saying “If it aint broke, then dont try to fix it” I hope their next album utilizes the sam formula. And just for the record, the vocals are harsh, growling and shrieking. If you can’t take, then go to the Korn and Limp Bizkit pages and buy that crap. Get out of the extreme pages, because chances are,you are a trendy kornalike or you are too old. Back to the album now. The songs Bleed for Ancient Gods and Last with Pagan Blood are simply masterpieces. Metalwrath describes how there are bands out there that simply suck(Korn, Limp Bizkit, Staind, Sevendust, Slipknot, Spineshank). Needless to say, these bands should here this song. North Sea Storm is also classic brutal death metal with a little hint of melody. This cd is not for the faint of heart, but if you like it brutal, violent, and with no influence from money or record labels or MTV, then this is for you. Worth the price of admission for Last with Pagan Blood alone. Perfect.
