Well like with a lot of my "Random Album Reviews," I am not that big into the band. This goes the same for Amon Amarth. I have listen to some of there stuff and I really liked it; I have even seen them live. Favorite song by the is "Gods of War Arise."

But this album is great. From the opening slide of the guitar in "War of the Gods," the listener knows that they are about to listen to something great. This album has a mix of songs that go straight into it and songs that have a little build up in the beginning. In "Destroyer of the Universe" it has about a 3 to 4 second build up. You might think that 3-4 seconds isn't that long but for this song it is perfect. I like one of my favorite riffs is in the song "Slaves of Fear." I just love the intro to that song.

Overall this is a very solid album. It is great from start to end. Instruments sound just amazing and the vocals sound really good. The production on this album is really good as well.

Rating: 8.5/10

Favorite Songs: War of the Gods, Destroyer of the Universe, Slaves of Fear, A Beast Am I, Doom over Dead Man
