By the way the Vikings make the weaker "Fate of norns" forgotten, the dead man ship Nagelfar will have to transport other freights than Amon Amarth's remains for the next time. No place for "Valhal awaits me". Although: the edgy opener doesn't stand for an early, but rather an honourable death in the battle. While the preceding album sounded as if the team would struggle with the oars in inland waters, now the wind of the open sea fills the sails again. Amon Amarth is stylistically strictly defined, they have to use the whole range. In doing so, they stick to their best album ever, "Versus the world". Besides unique, typical songs with great melody lines - "Gods of war arise", e.g. is very experienced - you get the heavy hymns "Runes to my memory" and "Hermod's ride to Hel" as well as the energetic, fast song "Asator" and with "Under the northern star" again a softer exception. "Cry of the black birds" even sounds like a rhythmically more progressive study of the material of the legendary first mini CD.
