Additional info
The "Viking Edition" bonus disc contains the bonus track "Siegreicher Marsch" but also the "Sorrow Throughout The Nine Worlds" EP (tracks 2-6), the "The Arrival Of The Fimbul Winter" demo (tracks 7-9) and the "Thor Arise" demo (tracks 10-14).

The "Strictly Limited "Pop-up" Edition" is only two discs and does not include the "Viking Edition" bonus disc as well.

Sweden, birthplace of so many excellent Death Metal bands, especially Melodic Death, once again displays a major combo with Amon Amarth. I have to say that I was totally oblivious to the sole existence of that band before having a chance to discover this album. But as if the band was aware of this, they generously included a bonus disc with "Versus The World", which contains a best of their previous albums, and that album alone is praiseworthy. But let's not diverge from our major topic now, namely "Versus The World". The band has been around for quite some time now but this album is their huge breakthrough.

I found that track and Versus the World very enjoyable, however the rest of the album was rather boring or uninspired

  Boring album. Every song sounds the same.

  Better than some of the albums that would come later, like Fate of Norns or Odin on Our Side.

Rating: 7 One of their better albums, but not so much better as to cause me to rate it above the others. The first two tracks are pretty great, but it goes a little downhill from there.

Rating: 10 Brutal, melodic, epic, almost perfect
