The Scandinavian kings have sprung into action once more, releasing another album. As always, they know the deal. At first, I thought it was a very typical album with songs more-or-less all sounding like each other, but after a couple of listenings, my ideas greatly changed.

This was the album where AA started to lose my interest. You're quite right, it was becoming too formulaic. In fairness they tried a few new things on their two most recent albums but it showed them dabbling with trad metal which I found even more dull.

I think they are genuine crowd pleasers, and felt comfortable sticking with that format because they thought that most of the fans wanted more of the same, and they didn't want to damage their reputation, but eventually fans become tired of the same thing. After hearing their latest single, I'm expecting their next release to be not a whole lot different than Berserker tbh, but I hope I'm proved wrong.
