Twilight Of The Thunder God was a very nice album, I find this new offering from Amon to be very enjoyable. It has some amazing songs and my favorites being Varyags of Miklagaard, Twilight Of The Thunder God, Guardians Of Asgaard and Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags while not as perfect as their previous album With Oden On Our Side. With Oden on Our Side was such a solid album which made it harder for them to top it off, I mean don’t get me wrong this was still a brilliant album and the addition of guest musicians like Apocaliptica, Lars Petrov from Entombed and Roope Latvala from Children of Bodom which in my opinion was quite impressive made the whole album feel more epic. Johan Hegg outdoes himself once again on vocals, and the riffs growl and stomp like charging vikings. This latest album also sees guitarists Olavi Mikkonen and Johan Söderberg raising their game to new highs, something that pushes the album on to another level. What else can I say, this album is just incredible and is up there with Versus the World if not better. I have just started to become a fan and will listen to anything these guys make since they have been consistently good and have improved with each subsequent release, but then this album came out and managed to blow me away. The melodies are just awesome and the guitars have a new sound that is amazing, The epic melodies, relentless pounding and Norse growls are mightier than ever and the lyrics were fantastic. For those who like me, are looking for more of Amon Amarth’s inimitable take on melodic death metal, Twilight of the Thunder God will render you nothing short of ecstatic with great headbanging metal anthems like Guardian’s Of Asgaard, and Twilight Of The Thunder God is also no exception. With such a catchy lead melody, triumphant chorus, and epic guitar solo, this track just kicks so much a**. This is definitely a must have album and one of the best metal albums of 2008, Amon Amarth rules! check it out.
