05:38 - ScreamingSteelUS I wouldn't go that far, but I agree they can be repetitive. For me, it's one of those cases of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." "Twilight of the Thunder God" may be my favorite, though.
05:36 - deadone I've never liked them that much, other than Twilight of the Thunder God. Their albums come across as repetitive and monotonous and all sound remarkebly similar. AC/DC and Cannibal Corpse seem like Jethro Tull in LSD on comparison.
05:29 - ScreamingSteelUS I think it's because they are just one of the biggest names in the awards. I love Amon Amarth, but "Deceiver of the Gods" was tied for third place in that category for me.
05:25 - deadone I think Amon Amarth rule the melodeath cause not much interesting is coming out of that genre.
05:21 - Shasta Wicked Waltz just released their new full length album, Perseverance, featuring Casey Grillo from Kamelot. I would love to know what you think about it. post on their Facebook page
05:15 - ScreamingSteelUS Dudes. Since the MS Awards began, every Amon Amarth album has swept the Melodeath/Gothenburg/Ext reme Power category. They have five wins in ten years of MS Awards. That has to be some kind of record.

"Solid State has always been an important part of Demon Hunter," said Demon Hunter singer, songwriter and co-founder Ryan Clark. "They helped market the band before we'd even started writing our first record and they continue to push the band further with each new album. From the very beginning, Solid State has allowed Demon Hunter to do things our own unique way and they've become a vital part of the band's existence. Re-signing was a no-brainer for us."

Demon Hunter will release The World Is A Thorn on March 9, 2010 in-stores and online.
The band's fifth album follows the landmark documentary 45 Days, last year's Live In Nashville collection and a catalog of landmark albums that have made the band one of the most important in the genre.
The World Is A Thorn was produced by the band's longtime collaborator Aaron Sprinkle (Acceptance, Anberlin, The Almost) and mixed by powerhouse producer Jason Suecof (All That Remains, Trivium). It's a pairing emblematic of how skillfully Demon Hunter has always blended metallic might with melody.
It's a well-worn cliche these days for a band to say their new album is "our heaviest but also our most melodic," but Demon Hunter delivers in spades with this release. Songs like "Descending Upon Us," "Lifewar" and the title track are by far the most aggressive of the band's career, "This is the Line" and "Collapsing" are a couple of the fist-pumping but still hard-driving anthems and "Driving Nails" is one of two ballads on the album the likes of which their fans have come to both expect and cherish.
Seattle-based metallers Demon Hunter will release a new CD/DVD package, "45 Days", on November 25 through Solid State.
