    Ok. It’s a nice album. The best is “into the dark” the most underrated song in the album. It lacks some of the sound in you earlier albums (2000-2014) there is no background guitar to give it a finished sound. It feels unfinished. In next albums maybe have background guitar. It would rap up the album nicely and polish it off.

    Solid Album. It isn’t quite as good as Twilight of the Thunder God or Surtur Rising, but it’s still a solid album full of great riffs. 8/10

    Great album!!. I wasn’t too familiar with their music until I saw them with Slayer a couple weeks ago. I have to admit Amon was my favorite of the night. As a huge metal fan of over 35 yrs, I can’t believe it took me this long to discover this band. Great old school melodic death metal that shouldn’t be ignored! Raise your Horns!!!!

    Another Win!. I’ve been a huge fan of Amon Amarth for years now and somehow, they seem to get better each time!! Every album has progressed their sound and expanded on their previous work. In an age of assembly-line pop-music garbage, these dudes are the real MVPs!! True masters of their craft!

    All Hail The Viking Horde!!!. Another incredible record from Amon Amarth. Jomsviking was great and they clearly aren’t resting on those laurels. Berserker only adds to their legacy of Viking brutality.

    Get used to it. This is a great album from Amon Amarth. They have stayed true to their fans but also have managed to keep the song writing fresh and continue to add to their sound. With their success will come more criticism so it doesn’t surprise me to see the haters chiming in. All of that should be taken as a positive sign as the band is now starting to compete with some of the front runners in metal.

    Incredible Album - cant stop listening to it!. As has been my experience with all Amon Amarth albums, initially some songs catch me more quickly but as I listen the depth and richness of the album sinks in more and more. My favorite songs often wind up being different than when I first listen to the album. This album is incredible! One of their best.

    Get a Life. Hey, if you don't even like the music, why leave a review and make the bands rating go down? Leave it to the people who actually understand and listen to Amon Amarth/Metal.

  • PerceiverofGoats

    Reliably great viking metal!. Nothing wrong with the vocals here as some seemingly ignorant people are claiming. In fact the singer is quite intelligible rather than just grunting incoherently, which is always nice. The music is impeccable as always; I don’t get the complaints there either. Too much spoken word? That comprises what, a minute or two of a nearly hourlong album? Get over yourself. It’s a fun album with lots of variety and a couple very minor experiment touches that aren’t unwelcome at all. The hard work these guys clearly put into this album shouldn’t be so easily shrugged off; the laughable ignorance of some of these reviews makes me sick. These guys rule and they should be proud of this album!

    Surprisingly good. First. If you don’t like death metal, don’t review the genre. Haha Cookie Monster very funny thanks for dragging the reviews down. This is one of Amon amarth’s best albums to date. It stands next to vs the world and oden as their best work. Even though it’s rather lengthy it’s so well paced that it doesn’t get boring. I thought these guys were over the hill but Berserker proves they’re still inspired and full of great ideas.

    Melodic Death Metal (Rant Included). For disclosure, I’m not the most seasoned fan of Amon Amarth’s discography. However, I am the most season fan of melodic death metal acts: Children of Bodom, Disarmonia Mundi, Soilwork, Angela-Gossow era Arch Enemy, and Insomnium to name a few. While I’ve caught Amon Amarth under my radar a fair number of times in the past few years, I liked what I heard but never got into their older material but I’m planning on doing so after listening to this record. However, I’m also laughing at how the “one star” reviews read like an edgelord’s troll post on Facebook. “Cookie Monster vocals” and “trash” are just the tip of the iceberg here. Seriously, death and black metal have the vocals reminiscent of a growling dragon or the sails of a Ringwraith respectively but can mix it up with some clean vocals in places. Just see Epica and Opeth as some examples. If you’re really going to give it a one-star rating just because it doesn’t have trap snares or vocals reminiscent of a malfunctioning robot, you’re just proving the rest of the crowd of how ill-informed you are regarding the more extreme side of metal. Either do your homework on music genres or go away. Back on topic, much of what makes melodic death metal great is the guitar work. It works with the early In Flames catalogue. It works with Children of Bodom. And it certainly works with Amon Amarth, weaving in beautiful guitar harmonies with the rhythm guitars as the base of the sound to give the various power chords a touch of seasoning to an exquisite meal. Many of these riffs can instantly get a crowd into a moshpit or into a frenzy. As for the vocals, a sore spot for many newcomers to extreme metal, they’re actually impressive personally. Speaking as someone who’s listen to acts like Opeth and Pantera to discover that their lead vocalist has lost their voice by their forties, it’s refreshing to hear a death metal vocalist who not only is still capable of such guttural growls but also improve on them in every way. Overall, the album has this sort of accessibility that Amon Amarth hasn’t showcased as much for metalheads like myself who’re total newcomers to their discography. Sure, the vocals are an acquired taste for the newcomers and especially for those who’ve accused metal as being “screamo” or some other nonsense. While it may be the ammunition for that misconception, you’ll start to learn to appreciate the talent and hard work necessary to obtain that sound once it clicks with you.

    Sweet music, bad singing. The musicality of the instruments is awesome. The head bumping rhythms are great, but the guy sounds like he’s singing out of a garbage disposal. If they went for some melodic SINGING instead of demonic SCREAMING I would buy the album. But I at the same time it’s what some people like ig.

    True Viking Metal. So many great songs on Berserker the more I listen the more it grows on me . Amon Amarth are 1of the best metal bands of all time . Shield Wall has a great riff and it’s going to be a pit former at a show. No filler songs here get it now. 🤘🤘🤘🔥🔥🔥

    Brutal offering !!!!. This album is amazing. Strong songs throughout, not a weak offering to be found! It has a bit of the styles from the previous albums but also stands on a hill all it’s own. Once again the Vikings of metal do not disappoint!

    Not bad, not great.. This album is missing a lot of the signature guitar melodies that Amon Amarth is known for. The riffs are rather repetitive, and there are too many spoken word sections. Overall, this album is underwhelming to say the least. It’s not a bad album, but it’s certainly not a great album.

Amon Amarth - Berserker Album Wiki

In the Old Norse written corpus, berserkers (or "berserks"; Old Norse: berserkir) were warriors who purportedly fought in a trance-like fury, a characteristic which later gave rise to the modern English word "berserk." Berserkers are attested to in numerous Old Norse sources, with their name literally rendered as "bear-coats", along with úlfhéðnar ("wolf-coats")..
