    Great Album. I love this album from start to finish. The vocals don't always match the song. I'm convinced this would be one of the super stars of metal if they had better vocals though.

    Another excellent album. These guys don't change much and that's a good thing. This album is good from start to finish. A couple of tracks keep this from being 5 stars, but they can't all be 10's. Well worth a purchase.

    Phenominal!. The first time I heard this band, I was astounded. This album is pure awesomeness, especially since it tells a story. So hyped for the next album.

    Simply solid, no matter what. An epic told hard that stands tall with any quest story. Listen, listen again, it masterfully unfolds on each razor-sharp beat and lyric. Not one ounce of fluff on this album, it's a tale so well-rendered, it bears repeating and repeating. Had not heard of Amon Amarth before this, and don't want to spoil anything, but this band can tell a hell of a story right up to the last note. That last note leaves the listener wanting to grab and pull it back and say, "but, wait..." Repeat. You will.

    Good. This alubum sonds pretty awesome.i gotta say though everythime i listen to Amon it makes me sad that Dethklock dostnt play anymore because even though Nathen Explosions voice was based on Amons lead singer thats who i always pitcure singing their songs

    Absolutely fantastic album. This album is my first album from Amon Amarth, and it is amazing. All of the songs are extremely fast and heavy, and are therefore extremely great for working out or head banging. This album makes you want to slam a tire with a sledgehammer or run a marathon.

    Back on Northern Shores. Try not to shed manly Viking tears to this one, it seals the deal with greatest masterpiece they've ever created, quite possibly the best Album they've made this song stands alone as a massive display of intense vocals, harmonic riffs, and a magnificent deep melodic ending that concludes in an overwhelming sense of triumph and greif all at the same time, this is 110% Amon Amarth
  • Kravesin

    Not their Best, but still decent. This album while short, also has some good songs on it. I feel like it has lost some of it's hard rooted meaning. After they lost their original drummer the quality has gone a bit. I still like Amon and many of their big hits still hit home in my Scandinavian heart, but I definitely did not enjoy this album as much as I had with some of their others. However, it is still worth buying with inspired songs like 'Raise your Horns', which touches on the honor and fraternity that is felt on so many levels of the warrior's heart.

    Perfect Production. Sounds a lot better than deceiver of the gods, and the song writing is stronger as well. I still have an affinity for Surtur Rising, but this is exactly how Amon Amarth should sound.

    5 stars
    Screw the haters. There are few people commenting who dislike this masterpiece, because they never heard death metal or they "miss" the old style. Don't pay any attention, I own all AA albums and they keep getting better & better. This one is truly a must buy, AA is one of the best melodic death metal bands to ever exist, PERIOD!!!

    Mediocre. Lacking that epic sound and feel you could hear in their earlier work. All downhill after Surtur Rising with the exception of some tracks. Still AA but their better days are behind them. 5/10

    Odins Sons!!!. Amon Amarth never disappoints. As always they make you feel... well VIKING AS F**K. Honestly If this album doesn't make you want to grab a shield and axe and raid I don't know what will. But as always they have just one song that doesn't really spark my interest and that song is the one with the female vocals I honestly think within temptation or nightwishes old sing could have done a better job. Still love the band still a great album can't wait to see them May 17th.

    Not sure. I love the crap out of this band. Having said that, I think I don’t love the crap out of this album. There are some songs on here that I will probably never listen to, not to say that they are bad. There are some songs on here that are completely amazing, that I will listen to over and over. I am seeing them in May, I expect them to put on a mind-blowing show. I think this is not my favorite Amon Amarth album, but you’ll see that I’ve rated it 4 stars, because I think it’s better than OK.

    A legendary metal tale. Amon Amarth are one of the most dependable bands in metal. Never a let down and you always know what you're going to get. But Jomsviking takes that tried and true formula and knocks it up a few pegs. This album really does feel like it's telling a story. It has a great flow and feel to it. And it's still heavy as all hell. This might be my favorite from them yet.

Amon Amarth - Jomsviking Album Wiki

The Jomsvikings were an order of Viking mercenaries or brigands of the 10th century and 11th century. They were staunchly Pagan and dedicated to the worship of such deities as Odin and Thor. They reputedly would fight for any lord able to pay their substantial fees and occasionally fought alongside Christian rulers. Although they were Pagan, the institutions of the Jomsvikings in some ways anticipated those of the Christian Knightly Orders of the later Middle Ages.The legend of the Jomsvikings appears in some of the Icelandic sagas from the 12th and 13th centuries. According to the sagas (particularly the Jómsvíkinga saga, King Olaf Tryggvasson’s Saga, and stories found in the Flatey Book), their stronghold Jomsborg was located on the southern shore of the Baltic Sea, but the exact location is disputed by modern historians and archeologists. Most scholars locate it on the hill Silberberg, north of the town of Wolin on Wolin island in modern day Poland. Jomsborg is thought by some researchers to be identical with Jumne, Julin and Vineta, which are mentioned in both Danish and German records from the Middle Ages.Historians still debate the accuracy of the accounts of the Jomsvikings. Since the site of their headquarters has never been conclusively located, confirming the tales of their exploits is somewhat difficult. The location of Jomsborg is a matter of debate in historical circles, due to the scarcity of primary sources. There are no contemporary sources mentioning the names Jomsvikings and Jomsborg, but there are three contemporary runestones. Reference also appears in Old Norse poetry and Lausavísur which refer to their battles..
