Amon Amarth: With Oden On Our Side
Artist: Amon Amarth
Title: With Oden On Our Side
Label: Metal Blade
Product Type: VINYL LP
180gm vinyl LP pressing. Amon Amarth has a long history with Metal Blade Records, that goes back to 1998 when they released their debut album, Once Sent From The Golden Hall. That album, along with 1999's The Avenger, were the first two Amon Amarth records to received the Metal Blade "Originals"-treatment, followed by The Crusher and Versus The World. Now it's time to give Fate Of Norns and With Oden On Our Side the same love. Recorded at Fascination Street Studios with producer Jens Bogren, the majestic riffs, thunderous drums and roaring vocals on 2006's With Oden On Our Side have never sounded better and more convincing. A match surely made in Valhalla, Mikkonen commented on the collaboration: "We had never worked with a producer before the way it should be done. Jens Bogren took the band to a new level, both production- and sound-wise. Musically, this album is more worked through and, most important of all, we wrote it together as a unit."
