After catching the bug with Vs. The World, I went back and explored earlier releases like The Crusher And The Avenger. And then Fate Of Nornss came out, and it just seemed "restrained" somehow. One of those deals where all the ingredients are there, but the songs just seem to be missing something. This one isn't a disc I listen to often, and maybe I need to revisit it, but it has just never impressed me that much, beyond "Pursuit Of Vikings" and "Valkyries Ride."

As suggested in my previous comment, I went back and listened to Fate Of Norns again, and while it still isn't my favorite Amon Amarth disc, it's not as bad as I remember thinking back in '04. Really, the big thing is that it's the first album not to have that razor-sharp, production. The guitars have a more murky low-end sound, which has since become the norm for the band. In a way, this is the beginning of the "new" Amon Amarth, which isn't all that different from the old version, except for a certain incrased accessibility mainly heard in more moderate tempos and a less harsh production sound. The whole Viking gimmick hhas the potential to be really cheesy, but somehow, in the hands of Hegg and Co., it's a ton of fun.
