Amon Amarth and Tyr.


Play until she breaks up with you.

The most brutal band to ever exist is...

You should go like them...even if you don't like them.

Their spirit can be found in "Two steps From hell". But as sloppyjoe24 said: "Amon Amarth" and as hamza hashmi said "Eluveitie" are good examples to me.

Amon Amarth is the stereotypical Viking band.

Bathory, starting from Hammerheart. Even Blood Fire Death if you like more Black metal approach. This band practically started the whole Folk/Viking metal genre. My favourites are both Nordland albums.


ESP LTD F-50 + Tonezone
Cort EVL-Z4 + X2N
Cort EVL-K47B

Marshall Valvestate 8100
Randall RG1503
Bugera 333
Peavey Rockmaster preamp

Line6 Pod X3

Mithotyn might just be my favorite viking metal band. Sadly, they never seem to get much love. Also Windir and Myrkgrav are great.

Any of their first four full lengths are great really.
