"For me, this is Amon Amarth 2.0," vocalist Johan Hegg declares. "I think what we've done here is give ourselves the space to explore other parts of our musicality and who we are as a band. If you're content with where you're at, what's the point of continuing? We always want to come up with new ideas and find new ways of doing things and to create bigger and better shows and really try to improve every aspect of what the band is. We want to try to keep growing and to do this for as long as we have the possibility to do so, because this is the best fucking job in the world."

Doesn't find me in love at first listen... Used to love AA and follow them since their very first album but JOMSVIKING was such a letdown that I stopped listening to them. Not a bad song but this is plain rock, not what they used to do before.

Awesome track! Really like that heavy breakdown around halfway into the song. Good shit.

Album artwork is stupid though.

Remove the vocals and it becomes Children of Bodom. And this is not a compliment. Also...

Wish they went back to the more raw original sound from the first albums OR just stick with the poppier/hookier newer sound that made them super popular. This song is some sort of weird in between. Hopefully there's some strong tracks here, even Jomsviking had a couple.

It looks like they stole the idea for this album from Asenblut's latest record. I mean, the cover even looks similar. http://metalstorm.net/bands/album.php?album_id=89127&band_id=7100&bandname=Asenblut

Not a fan of the cover. Song is ok, didn't really like their last 2 albums.

Very disappointing. The only berserker in there is the title... They've become so clean, so predictable, so... accessible. They sound like retired vikings... like, let's take a nap in Denmark before we invade England.

Hope there are more heavier riffs in the album bcoz what I just heard is a just above average song of AA. I am still hopeful.
