What is immediately noticeable on Surtur Rising is the upgrade in the guitar work department. With the possible exception of Adult Swim’s Dethklok, Amon Amarth is probably the most easygoing band to ever utilize Cookie Monster vocals. In hindsight, this embodies yet another stepping stone in the back-and-forth pattern Amon Amarth keeps finding themselves entrenched in. Regardless, in typical Amon Amarth fashion, even the reinvigorated procedure fails to inspire for the entire duration. Deceiver of the Gods The production is generally well done but I miss some edges and some energy that would rate this album up and make it heavier. Luckily, there are enough catchy lead parts to keep it from becoming stale and boring.

This is just a natural progression for the band. MorbidOccultoJune 26th, Even though the band isn’t innovating at all and more conservative and closed minded as their Viking ancestors, this album might please to the old fan base. Twilight of the Thunder God The guitar anthems are just as epic as they always are, although there is that slight hint of progression that’s evident in every sequential Amon Amarth release. The solo work is nice, keeping with what Amon Amarth have always liked to go for with the tapping solo’s without ever really going over the top or going blazing fast.
A four hour long live dvd. The bonus track on this album is a cover of “Aerials” by System of a Down.
Amon Amarth – Surtur Rising – Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives
If you like the general style of Amon Amarth, you might also like this album. Man, does this blow Twilight of the Thunder God out of the water or what? In addition, “Destroyer Of The Universe” and “A Beast Am I” are probably the most extreme and hard hitting tracks on the album while “Live Without Regrets” takes on an almost folk metal direction with its incredibly happy harmonies. However not all is well, the lyrics aren’t exactly as fresh and interesting as they use to be.
The only problem with the instruments is that sometimes the bass is not audible nothing unusual for metal though and the guitar riffs lack memorability. The album, as a whole, is quite exhilarating, forged from tons of gripping and powerful riffs which was expectedand the usual powerful vocals, and a rather formerly-unknown sound that lasted but for few seconds.
I mean my experience with the band is limited to having listened to Twilight of the Thunder God a few times. Sorrow Throughout the Nine Worlds.
Amon Amarth never ceases to impress. However, there are a few particularly interesting exceptions as “Slaves of Fear” deals with the terrorist mindset and “Doom Over Dead Men” seems to deal with the timeless and rather vague theme of dying. Originally submitted to www.
Hell, they fit a lot better on a ballad than they do in that strange System Of A Down cover that was included on certain editions of the album Given the similarity of some of this band’s albums to one another, it’s not surprising that I occasionally get confused about which one I’m listening to, having special problems during ‘Victory or Death’, which I’m convinced was on the preceding album.
That being said, this album is a prime example of Amon Amarth’s unique style of melodic death metal. Of course, there are certain exceptions surthr some aamrth play with slower tempos. Give it a listen if you haven’t already. Ultimately I find it hard to strongly recommend this album.
Amon Amarth – Surtur Rising Review
In this respect Surtur Rising does not disappoint. My first exposure to this band was actually Fate of Norns, arguably one of their more safe and simplistic sounding albums, which is why I guess it was so accessible at the time. Vocals are what you’d expect, greatness. There are moments in the album when one feels like he has heard this riff before or that the same rhythm could have some variation in each measure, but overall, this album is historic.
AMON AMARTH | Surtur rising – Nuclear Blast
There are four shows, each playing start to finish some of Amon Amarth’s classic albums. But it won’t mostly be amongst your favourite record of the band on the other hand. I really wanted and expected this album to surpass its predecessor, because Twilight of the Thunder God was a bit of a step back in comparison to the flawless masterpiece that was With Oden On Our Side, but it appears that Amon Amarth has reached a point in which their releases are no longer going to surpass each other.
It was a sound I really was into and could listen to the band for hours.
The band offers nothing new in here, the album is just another typical Amon Amarth album and it doesn’t seem as if the band would have had a certain artistically goal amarrth intention concerning the record. From the start itself, back to back melody riffing with beast-like vocals were absolute phenomenal. Just like the Suebian brutes they so faithfully pay homage to, Amon Amarth will continue to push the envelope of brutality and excess; for better or worse.
