AMON AMARTH picture
Deeply rooted in melodic death metal with lyrics centred around Viking history and Norse mythology, Amon Amarth (formerly known as Scum) formed in 1992 in Tumba, Sweden, a southern suburb of Stockholm. They began writing material with lots of melodies, harmonies and lyrics about Vikings and the norse Pantheon. In summer 1993 they entered Lagret Studio to record the Thor Arise demo, which would later on appear on the bonus disc of the album Versus the World. The band continued rehearsing and writing stronger material and again entered the studio. The result was the second demo, The Arrival of the Fimbul Winter. This time the band was much more satisfied with the sound and songs and launched it to an unsuspecting underground. The response was overwhelming, quickly selling out of the first pressing and secured them a one off deal with Singapore's Pulverised Records.

AMON AMARTH Twilight of the Thunder God

Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
voila_la_scorie
About a year ago or so, a friend showed me some Amon Amarth videos. Man, were they cool. Really big productions like small movies. I was to learn that one video was actually scenes from a movie starring lead vocalist, Johan Hegg. I finally got around to bringing an album home, this first purchase being recommended by my friend who assured me that this was a great album.

What first struck me about the music was how melodic it often was. It was sometimes like a faster version of Iron Maiden but included riffs like Judas Priest and Accept. Labeled melodic death metal, I personally feel that the music here is more traditional metal with the Cookie Monster-style of deeply growled vocals. Tracks like “Free Will Sacrifice” and “No Fear for the Setting Sun” remind me of Judas Priest and “Live for the Kill” makes me think of Accept.

Another observation is the regular use of very strong battle-song melodies. “Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags” and “Live for the Kill” may conjure up images of Vikings standing in their ship and swinging pumped fists as they sing these songs.

This feels like an album done by a very experienced band who are comfortable where they are. They have reached their comfort zone and are producing a string of above avergae albums. Looking as the ratings on MMA, I see other albums are rated higher and this one. Some songs are really good and the main riff for “Guardians of Asgaard” is an awesome one to easily be hooked on.

Probably not their most groundbreaking album, but “Twilight of the Thunder God” is still a solid piece of work in my opinion.

At this stage in their career assigning ratings to an Amon Amarth album is a slightly arbitrary exercise; you always know what you're going to get (solid melodic death metal inspired by a range of Scandinavian myths), and you know the band are going to deliver it with the quality and polish we've all come to expect from them, and whaddya know it? Twilight of the Thunder God delivers all that in a compact, no-nonsense 44 minutes. Some may accuse Amon Amarth of making the same album over and over, but when the album in question is this good I can't get too upset about that.

If there’s any single band that warrants the term Viking metal to exist as a bona fide subgenre in the greater metal universe than surely AMON AMARTH deserves to exist in that world with their parade of Norse mythology themed albums incorporating enough history, symbology and lyrical content to make Odin one happy camper. Well, guess what! Once again the band dish out some seriously deliciously melodic slices of heavy metal with all the usual themes and familiar sounds that crank it out loud and proud. JOMSVIKING is the 10th studio album from the band and sees the first band member change from their long stable lineup since 1999 with their constant millennial drummer Fredrik Andersson exiting stage left. The band opted not to hire an official replacement and instead decided to incorporate Tobias Gustafsson as a session drummer instead. The good news is that he fits in quite well and has a more than competent drumming style to keep the band cranking out their famous blend of classic 80s metal hooks and melodies with their deathened thrash bombast.

JOMSVIKING sees the band parting from their business-as-usual approach (well somewhat) of cranking out one predictable album after another and throws a few curve balls to the mix. Don’t worry. They didn’t suddenly become an electronica band or anything of the sort. This album incorporates all those divinely splendid songwriting skills with addictive hooks, excellently performed instrumental deliveries, guttural growls and that perfect production that keeps it somewhat raw sounding while mixing in a nice smooth crisp clear mix. The first difference is that this is the band’s first concept album. JOMSVIKINGS constitute a fictional tribe in some distant past and the story is about a young dude who falls big time for a girl who’s being married off. After he kills a man he has to escape and live in exile but is obsessed with winning her back. As time goes on he becomes a bitter man and the saga devolves into his realizing that his life had been destroyed and he only lives to find revenge.

JOMSVIKING is also the second of the “blue” phase of the band’s career (following eight albums of orange/red/black album covers. This corresponds to a new direction and the addition of the newest producer Andy Sneap. While “Deceiver Of The Gods” pretty much continued down the same path as “Surtur Rising,” the album did feel somewhat different in how the songs were unfolding. The songwriting has shifted even more dramatically on JOMSVIKING. While usually classified as melodic death metal, AMON AMARTH cranks out a more classic 80s riffs and at times with their dual guitar assaults can remind one of Iron Maiden or Judas Priest only with the death vocals and thrashy veneer that creates an addictive sound. There are also groove metal riffs, acoustic intros and even additions of Swedish folk music entering the sound as on “Raise Your Horns” and short softer spoken word passages as on “At Dawn’s First Light.” Also for a second album in a row there is a guest vocalist. This time around it’s Doro Pesch on “A Dream That Cannot Be.”

Twenty years after their first release the “Sorrow Throughout The Nine Worlds” EP finds the band continually honing their sound and tightening their songwriting skills. The band shows no sign of letting up any time soon with an endless wellspring of crunchy metal melodies just gushing from their source. JOMSVIKING is yet another excellent release that as expected does little to reinvent the metal universe but when a band comes up with a sound that so effortlessly blends the best aspects of melodic metal with extreme brutality then it’s no doubt that they should stick to what they know best. While the band has utilized more softer passages with acoustic guitar intros and non-metal accoutrements, any hardcore fans of AMON AMARTH will not be disappointed with yet another strong well written slice of Nordic mythology being bombastically accompanied by those jagged guitars, pummeling drum runs and of course the passionate growling gusto of Johan Hegg. Although i don’t really find any of AMON AMARTH’s releases to reach masterpiece level, i am impressed with their consistency and the later albums including this one to be a sliver more interesting than past endeavors. Another excellent release even if it may feel like it’s mostly been done a few times in the past.

Deceiver of the Gods (2013) is the ninth full-length studio album by Swedish melodic death metal act Amon Amarth. The album features a guest vocal performance from Messiah Marcolin (ex-Candlemass) on the song Hel. Amon Amarth may just be the kings of consistency in metal music; they've been putting out albums on a regular basis since 1998 and have had the same line up since second album The Avenger (1999), and you know what you're going to get with them. It's double-edged sword territory that the band has made their home in though. On the one hand, there's never much doubt that a new Amon Amarth release will deliver, but on the other you also know they're not a band for shocking their listeners.

In all ways that matter the same is true of Deceiver of the Gods. Except when you scratch the surface of the music you may notice that Amon Amarth's riffs and melodies tend to cross over into power metal territory. An example of this would be the song As Loke Falls or the latter stages of Coming of the Tide. The music itself is pure power metal but topped with Johan Hegg's growled vocals. Power-death, I tend to call this sort of music (in reference to the more common power-thrash term). This is a technicality though. (Euro) Power metal is melodic, and you don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to know what the key feature of melodic death metal is to differentiate it from vanilla death metal, so the two blend so well that unless you're well versed in your power metal to pick up on it, you're not going to notice it. Especially if to you power metal means high pitched vocals with lots of dragons, elves, and fairies (it always surprises me how many people manage to deny an obvious power metal release for what it is because it doesn't meet this misconception).

Subtle differences between the two or not, it doesn't change the fact that these little variations offer up a bit of a pace change from Amon Amarth's melodic death metal standards like the opening title track. And I think that's much needed in an Amon Amarth record. These guys are the very definition of a band who knows they're good at what they do, but every band has to have something to keep a record flowing without re-using the same ideas. They're also got clean vocals on Hel (from Messiah Marcolin), in contrast to the usual strict growls only approach to their take of melodic death metal.

I said at the start of this review that there's never much doubt that Amon Amarth will deliver. So naturally they've done it again with Deceiver of the Gods. Only this time I think they're definitely on a career high point. The riffs are great, the melodies perfectly integrated, and Hegg is on top form. Deceiver of the Gods is certainly a step up from the already solid prior album Surtur Rising (2011) with awesome tracks like the aforementioned As Loke Falls along with We Shall Destroy, Hel, and Coming of the Tide. Especially Hel and Coming of the Tide. Have I mentioned that there's a really epic song called Warriors of the North right at the end of the album? No? I should have done by now, but since it's a textbook case of leaving the best for last, I thought I'd do the same.

Rather than coming across as another album of more of the same, it's like Amon Amarth have received a new lease of life for Deceiver of the Gods, and it's easily the best release I'm ever heard from them. An exceptional grade rating is deserved.

90/100

Sweden's Amon Amarth has a reputation as one of the most remarkably consistent forces in extreme metal, and although they haven't been known for experimenting much with their brand of Viking-inspired melodic death metal, they deliver the style with power and conviction every time. With 2013's Deceiver of the Gods, the band's ninth full-length album, Amon Amarth once again has demonstrated this to be true; few risks are taken this time around, but the compositions are infectiously enjoyable and the performances sound as inspired as ever. Characterized by epic Viking atmospheres, heavy riffage, and melodic guitar leads, Deceiver of the Gods sounds unmistakably like Amon Amarth, and while that means that naysayers won't have their minds changed here, devoted fans should be highly impressed by great cuts like “Father of the Wolf” (I love the traditional metal riffs in this song!), “Warriors of the North”, and the title track. Amon Amarth has delivered once again!

Talk about value for money, from a band like Amon Amarth you wouldn’t expect them to be able to afford such a crazily generous and in depth DVD package when some of the bigger bands can’t afford anything even half this good.

The Set comes in a glorious 3 DVD digipak with detailed artwork, a full booklet and an awesome little viking crown that keeps it closed. Then you get Five full concerts (with 22, 16,13, 11 and 9 tracks respectively) and a documentary.

The main feature; a 22 track concert from Cologne in 2005 is an incredible affair with crystal clear sound, Huge guitar tones, amazingly heavy drums and nice clunky bass. The camera work is of a higher quality than even some of the biggest metal bands’ DVDs and again the sound is immense.

Then theres the performance, the band are absolutely electric delivering furious renditions of material from all eras a their career from the massive ‘Amon Amarth,’ and ‘Fate of Norns,’ to catchy closer ‘Death In Fire,’ and the crowd just lap it up.

Vocalist Johan Hegg absolutely commands the stage, engaging the crowd at every opportunity and singing his heart out while the band hammer through their classics like ‘heavy,’ is going out of style.

On top of all that you have a great light show, huge Amon Amath banners, more pyro than a kiss concert and an interlude with about thirty Viking reenactors sword fighting on stage! That feature is worth the money alone, the show is probably one of the best metal concerts on the market and I can’t stress how good the sound and picture are; then on top of all that you get the rest of the set, featuring virtually ever Amon Amarth song ever written, and performances from ‘Waken Open Air festival,’ ‘Summer Breeze Festival,’ and two more indoor concerts in Europe.

If you like Amon Amarth Buy this right now. If you don’t, you will within thirty seconds of watching this.
