I used to like a lot of music, but after finding MetalStorm, I discovered many new bands I had not heard before, including Amon Amarth. Seeing "With Oden On Our Side" on the MS Random Album feature started my interest about this band, and from there my position on "extreme metal" was changed.

So, this is my fourth album of AA and have to say, that I crowd it into my head two times a day. The voice of Johann Hegg is fantastic, in melodic passages sounds really amazing. I already like the album "With Oden on our side", but "Twilight of the Thunder Gods" I now prefer.

Amon Amarth is a name that makes every true viking look up from their mead tankards. Unlike Ensiferum or Turisas these guys leave weaponry home and hop into a car instead of saddling their horses. They don't need props as they are vikings by heart and their album Twilight Of The Thunder God shows this more than well.

Not far behind Oden and one of the reasons for me is that the vocals aren't as clear - I can't understand the lyrics here the way I can with Oden. Hegg isn't pronouncing his words clearly like he was on the previous release.

Had high expectations when read this. Too bad it's just another bland death album instead.

This album, I think, is their second best after With Oden on Our Side. Powerful, melodic, heavy, epic... It's hard to name a few favourite songs because almost all of them are really great and memorable.

Pretty old comment from fat clown pussy,

Need to know how deaf he could be? I really wonder does he make a good living in his country? Isn't he mentally retarted?!

Though record is not up the mark but calling this a "disco metal album" shows he can't make a fair judgement of any album.

How did you know that I'm fat ? Fat, Clown & Pussy...sounds like a serious discrimination against fat people.

I remember you. You're the one always like to call people's mothers names on MS and the one who loved Metal Hammer's Chart very much !!! A true tasteless imbecile on MS.

What do you mean by "making a good living" ? Are you asking if I'm rich in my country ??
No worries about my financial status, I'm born in a rich family. One thing I can be very sure, I'm richer than you.

Are you a refugee ? (just curious), (from your old photo) you don't look like an european, more like a syrian...or somewhere from the North Africa.

Hilarious comment from whoever I can't be bothered reading calling this a disco metal album.

They must have their heads on the wrong way.

Anyway, this is Amon Amarth's best album alongside With Oden On Our Side.

Most overrated Amon Amarth album. Every release before this is clearly better. Don't understand the high praise while their first few albums are dismissed...
