Amon Amarth - The Crusher

Label : Metal Blade | Archive under

Release type: Full-length CD

Horst : This Swedish band is active for almost 10 years now, and has become a household name in Death Metal. With 'The Crusher' they've released their third full-lenght CD, and basicly there have been no changes in their sound, compared with their former album 'The Avenger'. It's still Death Metal with Black Metal influences and some Viking/Pagan Metal additions, brought to us in nine tracks wich are mostly mid-tempo songs with sporadicly some speed. All is well played and about the production I can only say : the Abyss Studio's and Peter TÃĪgtren. 'The Crusher' just is the logical follow-up for 'The Avenger', so if you liked that one, get yourself a copy of the new album. In my opinion it would have been nice if they played some more on full-speed, but besides that it's an ok album.
