I'm curious to hear what people think of the new song. I like it a lot, but it's feels pretty different from their last album.

^^Love it. I posted a low quality radio rip of this from full metal jackie over the weekend on FB but i'm glad there's finally a full quality version to enjoy! I to am glad they changed up the opening track on this album. Mind you, i LOVE the opening tracks of the past 2 albums, Valhall Awaits Me and the title track to TOTTG, but they were very similar to each other, so im glad this song has a few flavor for an opening track. The amazing thing to me is when i met Amon Amarth on their tour with Tyr and Holy Grail last year, they said they didn't have ANY songs written for a new album and were just going to write and record some new stuff in the studio. I guess they're pretty damn good at writing under pressure.

I definitely like it alot more than the stuff on "Twilight" or "With Oden" but I will reserve my final verdict until I get to hear the full record. Although, I do hear a little bit of "The Crusher" in this song.

Very much agreed with post 12.

I like it. It has that crunch quality that wasn't in TOTTG, although I personally enjoyed that album as well. Can't wait for MARCH METAL MADNESS \m/

I like it has a little bit of something that was missing of off TOTTG. Lets hope that the rest of the album kicks alot of a$$ and makes it to the best album of 2011!

Im surprised of how few people are familiar with Amon Amarth's earlier work! I got into them when "The Crusher" came out, which is a decent album but "The Avenger" is a masterpeice!

Sounds great, can't wait for the new album. It sounds better than most of the stuff off there last album(except maybe Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags), it was good but i liked "With Oden On Our Side" Much Better.
