Wrath of the Norsemen

Cry of the Blackbirds
Runes To My Memory
The Pursuit of Vikings

Just absolutely awesome. In terms of performance, this might've been the best metal show I've ever seen. Amon Amarth was spot on, and the crowd was insane. The opening of War Of The Gods (which I also got on tape) was just epic in every sense of the word. The Surtur Rising set was really solid, and that really surprised me. It's definitely a better album than most think. Destroyer Of The Universe and A Beast I Am were real thrashers, but I think my favorite was the closer, Doom Over Dead Men. It's just got that great, mid-tempo melodic death metal beat that just makes for great headbanging.

In between sets, I hooked up with Nick (aka Nick_To_The_Face) and it was awesome that he made it! Lemme know if you can make it to BTBAM

The second set started off great. People went absolute nuts for Twilight Of The Thunder God and so many people were singing along that Johan didn't even sing the chorus. Live For The Kill got a great reaction, Asator was great to hear too. I dug the medley, although I wish they would've made Death In Fire its own song. The only song of the night I didn't like too much was Thousand Years Of Oppression. It was cool near the end, but that song made me feel the fatigue. Encore was just great, and we had a great sing-a-long to Pursuit Of Vikings. It's been a while since Amon Amarth had been in Lawrence, but the sold out crowd at the Granada will hopefully bring them back time and time again.

Oh, and we also sang Happy Birthday to their bassist, Ted.

Amon Amarth: 9/10
12/16 - Pallbearer
12/18 - Orange Goblin

Oh how I wish I could have went to the MN date on Friday Night. But I do have the audio bootleg of Chicago's show, so that will keep me happy until they announce they are releasing a show for CD/DVD.

Sounds like an incredible night!

This show kicked ass on so many levels. I was really impressed with how good Surtur Rising was. The Last Stand of Frej, For Victory or Death, and Doom Over Dead Man all destroyed. Can't wait for the next time they stop by.

That second setlist is fucking awesome and I'm really into the new album. I can't wait for the Easter show at the House of Blues in Hollywood.

Actually I'm pretty sure they played all of it, cause I looked at the set and Without wasn't part of the medley.

It was weird, I felt like they went right into the song by the guitar solo part and then went back and did most of the song.
