Guest review by

Amon Amarth released their sixth full-length album "With Oden On Our Side" on September 22nd 2006. Whoever had been disappointed with their preceding full-length album "Fate Of Norns" must certainly have got over that disappointment after listening to this album because the band has once again moved closer to their older style of songwriting and their sound in this album is similar to that of their old releases like "Once Sent From The Golden Hall."

  And yes, this is one the best Melodic Death metal albums of all times! I adore Valhall Awaits Me.
Abattoir - 24.12.2009 at 21:13  
  Yea, this is amazing powerful release. I did expect another decent album of course, but not as such great stuff as this one is. Still my favourite one out of their disco...
Kratos - 25.12.2009 at 01:11  
  Amazing Album, but Twlight of the Thunder God was much better.

Amazing Album, but Twlight of the Thunder God was much better.

IMO With Oden On Our Side is the best Amon Amarth album. then Versus The World and then Twilight Of The Thunder God.
Ellrohir - 02.01.2010 at 10:36  
  I also think this album is their biggest highlight...

Rating: 10 Although "Twilight Of the Thunder God" is more refined and extraordinally worked on, I too like "With Oden on Our Side" more. But it's definitely difficult to choose between the two.

Cynic Metalhead - 19.08.2011 at 00:18  
Rating: 9 The best from Amon Amarth. It will be tough to beat this level.
DesolationJersey - 05.10.2011 at 23:09  
Rating: 9 Epic album!
Cuca Beludo - 06.12.2011 at 19:17  
  A Masterpiece of the Melodic Death Metal, and the best AA album.

Rating: 8 Very good album, my favourite.
RAVASTATOR - 03.06.2012 at 23:25  
Rating: 10 I gave this album a rating of 10 because no matter what i hear, this still stands tall as the best balanced melodeath/Gothenburg i have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Consistent songwriting throughout, the album maintains a blistering pace and sweeps you along with it the whole way through. Relentless attack through the first 3 tracks gives way to a more relaxed refrain in Loke's Treachery Part I- for all of 56 seconds. This is an onslaught of a melodeath release that, while aggrandizing its scale in the final two songs of the album to round it out in a suitably 'epic' nature, always leaves you begging for more.

I'm not sure what it is about this album that is still capable of instilling man-tears as soon as the first riff of any track comes tearing along, but i am sure as hell that i'm still going to be 'banging to this come 2026 and beyond!

Rating: 9 Awesome work.
Ace Frawley - 28.07.2012 at 00:40  
Rating: 9 Been listening to this album for the past week and I'm very impressed. This is exceptional melodic death metal. I reckon the song "Under the Northern Star" is quite beautiful and could easily be sung with clean vocals and non-metal fans would love it.
InnerSelf - 28.07.2012 at 01:20  
Rating: 10 I still have this at 10, although it's been a while since I listened to it but it had a huge impact on me in the past.
nasmith - 07.12.2012 at 08:17  
  I can't help but think of Iron Maiden when I hear some of Amon Amarth's songs, like "Cry of the Black Birds."
Bad English - 19.01.2013 at 02:28  
  Maybe best album .... still not big diference from others, but lil melodic, lil calmer vox and there my fav song from this band
I love black birds

Rating: 10 This album never gets boring. Perfect album within the genre.
HeathenHeart - 03.07.2013 at 10:07  
Rating: 10 This is the album that got me into Amon, and to this day is my favorite album from them. Hail Oden!
serega25 - 30.10.2013 at 16:19  
Rating: 10 A great work from the band. Valhall awaits me!!!!!
Rulatore - 18.01.2014 at 17:10  
Rating: 10 Their best tied with Versus the World. Can't get better

band never gets boring IMO

Rating: 9 Simply the best Amon Amarth record, IMHO. It has a good balance between the heaviness and brutality on one side and the melodies on the other.
Favourite tracks: all of them. There is not a single weak song on this album, which is what separates it from the rest of the band's discography.
