If anyone wants to listen to an album with catchy melodies and aggressive sound, Amon Amarth's "Once Sent From The Golden Hall" would be a very appropriate choice. Released in the year 1998, this is a perfect example of an album which represents the fusion of melody, aggression and speed ("speed" here refers to the fast guitars).

Amon amarth have released a lot of brilliant albums, but this is where it all started. Hegg's vocals aren't the best at this point, but they do fit in with the rumbling bass-lines and heavy riffs throughout. A brilliant start to a wonderfully successful career.

An ambitious album that somehow seeks to take instant charge of its listener and does not stop until the album is over. The longer songs here are my highlights, the anthemic 'Amon Amarth' a perfect way of introducing the band, whereas 'Victorious March' could stand head to head with any other Amon Amarth song to this day. Underrated isn't the word.

Listened to it again after a year. It sounds so great after all this time Perhaps I should check the following two albums aswell. They sounded bad a year ago.

My favourite AA album, along with the quite different sounding With Oden On Our Side. Raw, melodic, and powerful, a special sound that got phased out after the first few albums. Dragon's Flight Across the Waves, Friends of the Suncross, and Ride for Vengeance are my personal highlights.

One of the better Amon Amarth albums, has some bite to it which they would lose later on, but its still pretty standard fare, enjoyable for what it is though.
