AMON AMARTH – The Pursuit of Vikings
I could write thousands of words on this documentary and double live album. However I can also easily let you know what is going on in a couple of sentences. It’s Amon Amarth doing what they do best at Summer Breeze and you get 2 full sets. Out of the 30 songs featured on the live discs, they only repeat one song, which is featured as the first song and last. The entire setlist is wicked good, covering everything you love from the band from old to new. I enjoyed the hell out of this recording and you will to. Hail Amon Amarth!
Soon after Amon Amarth finishes their North American raid with Goatwhore, they will head south with Abbath for a nice Latin American voyage!
Mr. Ross came up with a fun idea: to write about our top 5 most influential albums from the 2000’s. So thinking back through it all, most of my metal growth and interest (and knowledge I suppose) came from this decade. Sure there were a lot of back catalogs of music to indulge in but there were some key releases that got me interested in more genres and heavier music. In the year 2000, I was only a sophomore in high school. 2010? I was working a welding job and having a child. A lot happened in between that time frame but I think I can manage to pick only 5 albums that were most influential to me. It all started on August 28th 2001…
