Amon Amarth - The Crusher

Posted on Monday, August 30, 2010

The mighty Swedes are back with their tried-and-true formula of hard-hitting Death Metal. The Crusher presents 9 new tales deeply entrenched in Viking culture and Norse mythology. Cleverly written songs and addictive guitar riffs are typical of an Amon Amarth album, and this one is no exception. As always, Johan Hegg’s unparalleled battle-roar is backed by ferocious drumming and soaring, shredding guitar melodies. Just as with its predecessors, The Crusher was recorded at Abyss Studios. This new recording initially didn’t seem to pack quite as much of a punch as previous efforts. Its full impact didn’t really hit me until about the third or fourth spin. I am now convinced this is easily the band’s best effort to date, and a true masterpiece of Death Metal. By the way, the version of this release I received features an impressive cover of Possessed’s “Eyes of Horror.”
