I'm hoping for another killer album also. I just hope they are not getting burnt out and they can keep the creativity up. They have been touring and recording non stop for a couple of years now : / Thats the only negative nancy comment I have, besides that, looking forward to it and expecting good sh** as always.

YAAAAAAAAAAY! (does Kermit the Frog arm flail)

-Metal_Rapture- don't worry about that, man. They've had 3 years between releasing twilight and the new album. I actually met them last time they were in philly (this past spring) and Olavi and Ted said they a ton of new idea's up they're sleeve for the new record.

they really need to go back to the "Fate of Norns" sounds. That was their last great record.

Hey nothinghead, look up Amon Amarth on wikipedia and check out their discography, especially their demo Thor Arise. Check out who they credited the vocals to. I lol'd when I saw it a long time ago, obviously a wiki screw up, but in a way how cool would that be.

Yes, there was a sort of small shift between With Oden On Our Side and Twilight Of The Thunder God; even so, I enjoy both styles. Their consistency is good thus far, I'm sure this new album will be good as well.
