SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

They've had this music since the age of the vikings......actually in any medieval war, every army would play Amon Amarth over their speakers when they battled so every battle literally was fought with Amon Amarth as background music
Everyone stop recommending Wintersun as folk/viking metal. They are neither. Granted, they have some folky acoustic moments. Aside from that, their music in no way resembles either viking or folk, and is technically leaps and bounds above the norm for either genre. Not to mention not a single one of their lyrics can be construed as viking in any way.
