The Swedish death metal masters of Amon Amarth and their debut album ‘Once Sent from the Golden Hall’. Would anyone have guessed in 1998 that Amon Amarth would one day be standing before halls full of raised fists? No doubt it happened because their debut is peppered with powerful war songs, which made the victory march of these melodic death metal Vikings inevitable.
Includes a 400 g cover (inside-out print), 250 g insert and large poster.
Some of the clichés do really fit. One ì of them is that you can buy any CD that was produced by Peter Tägtren without hesitation. Here he helped the newcomer band Amon Amarth from Stockholm, Sweden. Amon Amarth present a mix of death and black metal, with the main emphasis put on death metal. They don't bear ì unnecessary ballast and provide a real ì "right-on-the-gob-feeling". They always ì keep the correct tempo and use melodious ì guitars, that remind of Unanimated's ì "Ancient god of evil". A round thing, ì essential for all death metal fans!!!ì ì ì
That what i call the definitive edition of the album!
Finally, great work with sound overall - so clean!
Metal Blade done the original presses back in 90s - and they were quite noisy
Repress sounds brutal - it's 100% metal sound with perfect accuracy repressed by original label!
And of course, if you listened this album only on CD - you will be really surprised how good can this record actually sound!
