Arson is a pretty bitchin' song to grab for $1 off iTunes, though.

Pursuit of Vikings has thunderbattle written all over it too. It's one of my favorite Amon Amarth tunes.

Exactly. I think that's the thing I like most about Amon Amarth. I don't know how he does it, but Hegg can impart a lot of emotion with his growls so that songs about drowning or laying dying with a spear in your back are simultaneously and tragic.

Hey, I don't see how Death in Fire being my favourite track off the album would somehow stop me from loving the rest to bits as well.

I didn't mean to imply that, just that it's a loving awesome song.

My Amon Amart recommendation is to just take one song and put it on repeat and then spend your money on other albums that don't all sound the same.

So to continue this, if I like the last 5 albums by Amon Amarth what other sorts of music should I get into. I don't really listen to any other growling bands, but something about them just clicks 100% with me. I'm otherwise a huge fan of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, which aren't exactly the same sort of music.

Amon Amarth, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest were also some of the first metal bands I got into. If you want all of the galloping of Maiden, some viking bullshit, excellent melodic sense and tolerable harsh vocals look no further than Ensiferum. They were one of the first bands to ease me into the Scandinavian metal scene and to get me to appreciate harsh black metal-style vocals. Their first two albums are my favourite, but honestly all of their output is pretty good.

Also, this is the best bonus track around.

Aesthetically, no, but musically Amon Amarth's later ablums are very similar to Judas Priest. I'd checkout other melodic/NWOBHMish death metal bands like later Death, later Unleashed, and later Carcass. You might also want to check out some power metal more that uses heavier vocals side like 3 Inches of Blood or Ensiferum.

Good. When I saw them a few years ago, they didn't play anything off of Mindcrime, and only played one thing off Empire



How was the show? The setlist looks pretty amazing:

(Spoilered because Iron Maiden tends to play the same set every night, and the last time I posted a spoilered setlist everyone yelled at me so be nice )

Doctor Doctor
(UFO song)
Moonchild
Can I Play With Madness
The Prisoner
(First time played live since September 21, 1991)
2 Minutes to Midnight
Afraid to Shoot Strangers
(First time played live since December 12, 1998)
The Trooper
The Number of the Beast
Phantom of the Opera
Run to the Hills
Wasted Years
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
(First time played live since December 12, 1988)
The Clairvoyant
Fear of the Dark
Iron Maiden
Encore:
Churchill's Speech
Aces High
The Evil That Men Do
Running Free
Always Look on the Bright Side of Life
(Monty Python song)


Also, how is Alice Cooper these days? Does he still do the ridiculous over-the-top stage show that he used to do, or did that end in the 80s?

That setlist looks amazing. I saw them 2 years and they mostly played stuff from their most recent albums, which I'm not really familiar with and don't care about. Still was cool to see 50 year old dudes running around like they did

Fine, I'll be wearing either a Morbid Angel Blessed are the Sick shirt or BoltThrower shirt. I'm pretty generic looking. No visible tattoos or piercings or anything.

E- And since it's Orlando, I'll be one of a handful of short blonde ladies under the age of 30. And I look about 16 (I am not 16).

I think Fate of Norns is their only poo poo album. There's no reason not to have the rest of their stuff.

It's the only album where all the members recorded their tracks individually, without any of the other band members in the studio. You probably picked up on that, somehow. They've said they won't ever be doing that again.

Two years ago at Metaltown Hegg said that they'd been called "old and tired" after their last gig and then proceeded to blow the whole festival to pieces.

Probably want to end with Fight Fire with Fire as a mini-finale.

And I never got why James hated escape so much. I like the song even if it was obviously an attempt to get a radio friendly single out because of producer pressure.

It's sad to see that James's voice is having trouble with this stuff but I guess that's nothing new. He just can't reach the high notes that he sang the pre-Justice albums with anymore.

They did the same thing when they played the Black Album all the way through, Lars said some mess about starting with lesser known songs from the end and ending the show with the ones everyone knows. I imagine with Ride they thought "well, why not do it again?"
