Label: Metal Blade Records – 3984-14360-1
Style: Viking/Melodic Death Metal
Re-release, remastered album incl. one bonus track. Third full-length studio album. Amon Amarth’s third release, “The Crusher” is probably the most straight forward album they released so far. Past releases had the band writing these long and beautiful stories that could paint a very detailed picture of battle and honor. Their melodeath style was perfect for the time. It provides some fantastic melodies while simultaneously offering that Johan Hegg melodeath vocal style.
Recommended for fans of Manegarm, King Of Asgard, Kalmah, Arch Enemy, Wulfgar, Insomnium.
