This was my introduction to Amon Amarth. At that time, I wasn't really into death metal, but this CD grabbed me right from the first listen. Heavy, but with hooks, and lots of classic-meetal elements, Maiden-like guitar harmony leads chief among them. The whole affair has an infectious Viking stomp to it as the band spins their tales of Norse mythology and history and folklore. Vs. The World is still one of my favorites from this band. Best tracks; "Death In Fire," the raging "For The Stabwounds In Our Back," "Bloodshed," and the closest thing they had to a single at this point, "Across The Rainbow Bridge.."

Thy kings of Melodic Viking Death Metal!!!...this album is a good one but far from being their best...tracks 1,3,4,5,6 & 7 go directly into my book .82/100

Rick ... just curious, bud. What's your favorite Amon Amarth disc? It's hard to pick, because they're such a consistent band, but my top three, I think, would be this one, With Oden On Our Side and the most recent, Deceiver Of The Gods. What say you, sir?

Hi there my dear friend Doghouse Reilly!!!...to be honest with you...ALL OF THE BAND'S DISCS ARE FAVES OF MINE ...have you seen them live?...me only once(2008 "Twilight Of The Thunder God" Tour in my country Venezuela)...then they came back again like 2 years after but couldn't perform because of some kinda issues with the venue they were supposed to play at...cheers mate!

I've seen them live once as well, Rick: Baltimore, 2011. "An Evening With Amon Amarth." They played two sets, the first one being the entire Surtur Rising album (new at the time), and the second a mix of songs from other albums, but heavy on the previous two. What a blast! Who says death metal can't be fun?
