Newest album by the Swedish band Amon Amarth. I think it's fuckin epic. Anyone?

Agreed. They're not reinventing the wheel with this one. They know what works and they're sticking to it. The album is solid.

Johan Hegg did an interview with metalreview last week. Here's the link for anyone that's interested:

Great album, when I listen to it I don't skip any of the songs. My favorite songs are Guardians of Asgaard and The Hero

The title track is pretty sweet too.

Sound is a little different from some of their other stuff, but still great overall.

Can't believe someone here badmouthed WOOOS though as this new album is definitely behind that and Versus the World.

More good stuff from AA though, IMO.

Best Amon Amarth album yet.

Free Will Sacrifice, and Guardians of Asgaard are the best songs IMO

You really think so? I found it a lot more melodic than their old stuff and it builds on the sound the had on wooos, I liked it more than their other albums.
