"With Oden On Our Side" for sure! Their best effort by now, it's even better than Twilight in my opinion.

For me it's Versus The World, I love that album and ... And Soon The World Will Cease To Be is my fave song from AA. I was quite indecisive between Versus The World and With Oden On Our Side, which an amazing and mindfucking great album, but I decided to give my vote to VTV, because it was the first AA album I hear and got me into their music. I guess so With Oden... is their best album, but Versus remains my personal favourite.

Once Sent From The Golden Hall for me, it has Ride for Vengence on it, abd dragon's flight across the waves. Both songs are ampng my very favourite songs from these guys.

I agree that Amon Amarth has gotten better the farther they've gone.
Versus the World is my favorite album, and With Oden On Our Side came in an easy second.

I have voted for "With Oden On Our Side". "Cry of the Blackbirds" is one of my fav songs and I also love "Gods Of War Araise" and "Asator".

Twilight Of The Thunder God is my second choice

WOAH people really spammed "With Oden.." here...

i voted Fate of Norns, it's the most consistent and has many killer tracks(title, beheading of a king, pursuit of vikings)

though Oden is pretty good too, there's many great melodic tracks on there(which draws away from the brutality sadly )
i mean...

Death In Fire, For the Stabwounds in our Backs = melodic and brutal
Under the Northern Star, Cry of the Black Birds = melodic but not really that heavy

With Oden on Our Side with Vs the World an extremely close second. These guys have been my favourite band for pure headbanging purposes for a couple years now. The combination of music and lyrics on Oden just get my blood boiling.

Though it's not on here I'm going with Twilight of the Thunder God.

But because I had to pick from the ones available I went with Oden on our Side.

I liked both albums very much when they were new. Now I can't deciede which one is better but my favourite AA song is Cry Of The Black Birds which is on WOOOS.

Best release is by far Thor Arise (Risen From The Sea, Atrocious Humanity), after which they lost a lot of speed. But for albums I will say Once Sent From The Golden Hall, for Dragons' Flight, Amon Amarth, Ride For Vengance, etc.

Have you heard Bleed for Ancient Gods? Now that's their best song!

Judging by the results, The Avenger is their most underrated album

With Oden On Our Side is the first Amon Amarth album I heard. It was love at first hearing. Tracks like Runes To My Memory, Valhall Awaits Me, Hermod's Ride To Hel, and Predictions of Warfare are catchy and vividly detailed. I felt like I was listening to a musical narrative, but wasn't bored! I love the warfare themes, mythology, and such. WOOS is definitely the album that got me into Melodic Death Metal (though I'm pretty sure Dethklok could've done the same thing), and it's what ranks Amon Amarth as my favorite band of all time.
