5.5
A shoddily conducted, atrociously produced, unamusing raid. All that glitters is not gold.

After 4 complete spins of the album, I can say it is a GREAT one. In the first listen I wasn't focused and it seemed to me like something generic. But from the second listening and on I understood its power and tasted all its flavors. The first four songs are simply good. The album starts from the fourth track Oden Owns You All. From this point till the end it is a NON STOP ALBUM
05. Find A Way Or Make One ---great
06. Dawn Of Norsemen--- the best track on the album
07. Saxons And Vikings [feat. Biff Byford]-- I love this one, Biff Byford nails it
08. Skagul Rides With Me--- great
09. The Serpent's Trail--- oh yeah

No, I will not say that is better than some older all-time classic amon amarth's albums but it is a great one. More straightforward with plenty of well-made hooks.

I listened to this album a few times now and I really want to 'Get in the Ring' with each one of them and knock them out.

Bad English

Putt your jeans, letter jacket on, put a beard oil, let your hair loose, put the mjölner around the neck and go in the Swedish forest. Read a lyrics and it's viking stories our history.
Band created riffs, maybe not best album, but ok. Each h album has something interesting.
Heidrun. Serpents Trail and Vikings n Saxons are best songs here. Biff Byford delivers there.

The second half of the album is less painful to listen to.

I don't know. All songs on here are just boring to me. Deceiver, Berserker and Jomsviking are killers compared to this.
