Amon Amarth Ape Pantera

Gothenburg metal band turned Swedish clowns Amon Amarth released a new music video for a butt rock track of filler off their last awful album, Jomsviking.

“The Way of Vikings” dumbs down Judas Priest into a butt rock singalong for thirteen year old boys and beta males in the the same way that Pantera did with Metallica back in the early 90s. Amon Amarth even punch people in an old timey bar like the cover of Cowboys From Hell. Do not listen to this crap; listen to Painkiller instead. Can you find what track the non-mosh riff is from?

    Even with their earlier stuff some tracks can get kinda boring, but I still like them in limited doses. I usually just cherry pick the best & toss em into a playlist. Yes, I’m a Pantera fan, I have Dime’s guitar pick framed on the wall from the first time I saw them.

    Second from left, is this some tribute to the 13th warrior? I don’t think vikings were that dark.

    Regardless of what you think of their music, Phil & Johan could probably stomp most people even at their advanced ages. Kerry King could probably stomp a hot dog eating contest, but that’s not exactly bragging material.

      Second from right. I’m still learning left from right & how to count to ten. Someday, someday.

    I want to give Rainer a big bear hug. Just squeeze him tight, clasp the back of his head and gently tuck it into my chest, and say “everything’s gonna be alright, man. Everything’s gonna be alright. I’m here for you.” Then he’ll sniffle, holding back the tears, then he’ll gaze up into warm blue my eyes and say “I know.”

      Not an exact fit as targetted at a different kind of ‘male’ non-desirabless but close enough.

    A PSA for this site’s writers:

    The gallop rhythm, the one you refer to as “triplets”, is not actually triplets. It’s two sixteenth notes and a staccato eighth note. Or, alternatively, three sixteenth notes and a sixteenth rest. Or any proportional rhythm thereby. The more you know!

    Considering that this guy is a whopping year younger than me, him still being fascinatedby juvenile stuff is maybe excusable. But he could come up with his own ideas for video intros,

    OTOH, so-called “melodic death metal” is heavy metal propped up with death metal elements, IOW, essentially an attempt at conservative modernization of a style that’s known to be commercially successful. Comparing this with Judas Priest is really doing it too much honour — it’s more Running Wild with the cringeworthy parts made to cringeworth harder and anything still resembling teeth carefully removed.

    1. autist says:

      Running Wild actually wrote good hooks, at least on their better albums. Amon Amarth can’t even do that much.
