Amon Amarth - Twilight Of The Thunder God LP (Black vinyl)
Amon Amarth are unquestionably the kings of Viking metal. From the inspiring and vivid lyrics, to the most badass, anthemic choruses out there, they bring the heat with every release they put out. Twilight of the Thunder God is an album with a lot of groove and more focus on melody than some of their previous releases. In spite of this there is no lack of heaviness. There are some absolutely brutal tracks on this album and such a wide range of songs. Some are very fast paced and melodic or others slow and brooding and dark.This album was the best possible next step in their musical journey, everything good about their sound was honed and crafted into this Viking epic. This masterpiece of slaughter and mayhem.
