Amon Amarth - With Oden On Our Side

I actually find a lot of Amon Amarth to be really boring, but they pretty much hit the nail on the head with this album. Lots of fast-tempo stuff and memorable songs. I consider this to be AA's best album by far. Again, don't call it Viking metal! Songs like Valhall Awaits Me and Cry Of The Black Birds have a lot of emotion in them and I get chills when I hear them. Fantastic stuff. The mid-tempo stuff actually does a good job of not just sounding like filler, either. It creates a great soundscape.

Favorite tracks: Asator, Runes To My Memory, Cry Of The Black Birds
10/17 - Hammerween VI

10/26 - Spirit Caravan
10/31 - Acid King (?)
