The original post

Posted by Lucas on 23.05.2011 at 20:20
A brand-new, shiny and thoroughly exciting topic for Amon Amarth! The last question asked on the original topic was:

"So did anyone go to that night with Amon Amarth tour in the U.S. Was it boring? Good?"

Discuss!

I just sold my copy of The Crusher for $2. I ripped the guy off.

Haha yeah that album's worth about $0.50 in my opinion. I used to actually enjoy this band, but now I can barely sit through an entire album of theirs...

Yeah he seems to despise the term quite passionately. It's nice to see that he isn't propagating the nonsensical term.

its created by media even modern mainstream labels, magazines etc
like I always say genre its guitar sound, or instrument sound nothing more, same I hate when ppl says what is black metal, like posers Venom and Marduy guitarist ''to me if even saxon will have satabnic lyrics it will be black metal'' what a idiot

I suspect most people in metal despise the term. Only thing I could ever describe as Viking Metal is maybe Bathory for albums like Hammerheart. But even then I'm happy with the term progressive metal for this period of Bathory where progressive metal implies experimental and non-standard.

Progressive metal implies experimentation? That's news to me. Last time I checked experimental / avant-garde means experimenting and non-standard. Some of the most generic, non-experimental music in the world is progressive metal.

Wtf???? Amon Amrath progressive? hahahahahaha that's the biggest laugh I ever had. Standard generic melodic death metal. How the fuck can that be progressive? Even for Bathory that is totally ridiculous.


It is like Godbuster calling Armored Saint progreive because they are soundwise in betwen Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. Yep that gy truly is the biggest moron on the MS forums.

Never referred to Amon Amarth as progressive and totally agree on them being bog standard melodic death metal (which is for most part as boring as watching paint dry).

I was referring Bathory's softer albums ala Hammerheart, Twilight of the Gods, and two Nordlands which I don't know how to define. In fact I was quite explicit in this.

Thiose albums aren't progressive at all, either. How the bleeping bleep bleep are those albums progressive? You might as well call Celtic Frost, Venom, Metallica, Mercyful Fate progressive if you call Venom Wannabee bathory progressive

Well Mr Negativity, what do you call them?

They're certainly not Thrash or Black or whatever. The Venom influences were going by Blood, Fire Death.

They werre just crap simple as that.

But back to the music there was nothing progressive at all about them. No progressive chord changes etc. yes it might have been SLIGHTLY different to anything before that but that does not make it progressive. HE was still withinn the bounds of what extreme metal was at the time and didn't break the chains at all.

But you are too young to see that. (using the age card you Always use)

So what do you call them? Avant Garde or Experimental or Folk?

As for crap, opinions and nothing else. A lot of the stuff you like I would use the cds as coasters.

When you boil it down it's basically a form of folk metal, albeit viking themed.

Seems to have wiped his memory when it comes to those Bathory albums I mentioned. Or possibly he's never heard them, having by the sounds of it written Bathory off at a very early stage in their career.
