REALLY GOOD

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.

Serves me right for trying melodic death metal. It’s not very good. This album in particular sounds almost computer-generated. There is nothing gripping about it and the genre-typical vocals sure don’t help me shake the feeling that the Swedish band are sticking to a strict formula for churning out crap. I expected this result, but wouldn’t it have been great to find some death metal that actually sounds good?

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"

GREAT TRACKS: "Crack the Sky", ... read more

Honestly don’t like the vocals on the album, but the instrumentation is enough to keep it at a light 7
