So, who here likes Scandinavian Death Metal?

Amon Amarth rocks. That is all.

See them gathered on the plains now
See an army strong and vast
As long as one of us remains here
None of them will ever pass

Here they come so raise the shields high
Like wolves they show their teeth
None of us will ever yield now
To the scavengers beneath

We're outnumbered ten to one here
Still I love the odds
We will sacrifice them one by one
Send them off to the gods

Soon we will be gone
A free will sacrifice
As free men we are born
And free we shall die

Here they come ten thousand strong
Charging up the hill
This day will be both hard and long
They move in for the kill

Hold the line don't let it break
Use your sword and spear
A glory death for all awaits
All who knows no fear

Hoards of men they beat the shields
Like waves they break away
We face our woven destiny
And we don't fear the grave

Soon we will be gone
A free will sacrifice
As free men we are born
And free we shall die

These lyrics will make lifetime vegetarians race over to the nearest meat market and start stuffing 10 day old hamburger into their mouths. Guaranteed.

Its also great drainer music.

Rock on.

an old customer of mine was a roadie for a pretty famous band, he had me listen to stuff he called "Norwegian Thrash". Heavier than Heavy Metal, well produced too. Maybe that's what you're refering to, I could have my lines crossed though.

Especially in 6" heels. They're pretty tall to begin with. Must be the lutefisk...

Don't the musicians really get deep into it and, like, kill people to show their loyalty to the genre? And burn churches and stuff?

Some bands should just NOT make videos. It kind of distracts from the music.

I laughed watching it, even though I have the CD.

If you see their picture on Wikipedia, those guys only need about 2 outfits to tour, as they've all got black Doc Martins, black tshirts and jeans. Its soft of like Devo without the clay flowerpots.

You know, its funny. I'm a fusion guitarist who loves Mahavishnu and Coltrane and a lot of jazz stuff, but I prefer to listen to metal. Jazz - ever since "smooth" came along - has stagnated. Most of the invention in music is in rap, electronica and metal.

Amon Amarth is pretty good. I've been listening to a lot of death metal recently:
Lamb of God
Mastodon
Asesino
Brujeria
Otep (OK, maybe not exactly death metal, but still good)
Devildriver
Satyricon
Deicide
In Flames
Throwdown
Behemoth
Decapitated
