• Pre Order - AMON AMARTH - Berseker 2LP/CD
NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS
Once you reach the status of ‘eleventh album’, you’re either going to surprise people or you’re going to do what works for you. For the most part, Berserker stays firmly in that second setting. It adds another dozen songs to Amon Amarth‘s reputation as the best shuffle band in the world. Their willingness to play around the fringes of what they’re doing can make listening sessions compelling, but the sense of familarity cannot quite be escaped. They have an incredibly solid foundation, and listening to them semi-refocusing on guitar work this time around certainly turned this head the first few times through Berserker. But the backbone of much of the music is Amon Amarth doing what they do best, the rumbling chug and thundering battle segment.
