I really enjoyed this project. For a first listen to a certain metal band I came out more positive than ever. Often I don't like a band within the first listen for a review or something like that. But Amon Amarth is an exception. With great and melodic production and very nice vocals they proved to be a band that's very promising.

AMAZING TRACKS: "Mjolner, Hammer of Thor", "Raven's Flight", "Wings of Eagles"

I'm an Amon Amarth fan, so I was kind of bound to like this album. Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it--Amon Amarth continue to stick to their guns on Berserker, and thankfully bring more creativity to the table than they did on the mediocre Jomsviking. For a band that claims to only record albums out of obligation, they continue to release more-than-quality melodic death metal albums over and over again. This is what Children of Bodom's Hexed should have been.

Its fucking Amon Amarth. What more can you ask for? These guys can push out sick riffs and songs about thor until the heat death of the universe. and thats fine by me.
Ok for a death metal hater for no reasons who matter now I really got surprised with this album. Musics like Crack The Sky, Mjolner, Valkyria and Skoll and Hati are really nice but still I wouldn´t buy this album because I hate this genre. Never to say that the instrumental is really good and the quality of production is really nice but the lyrics aint so good for me It could have been a little better. If your a Amon Amarth fan probably will you like it.
