OMG this is wonderful ima huge fan of amon amarth i love their song twilight of the thunder god
That was the same song and CD that I was first introduced to by my friend when he was showing me a few bands. Great song, but my favorite off the TotTG album maybe "The Hero", "Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags", or "Embrace the Endless Ocean". Personal favorite album may have to be "With "Odin On Our Side" though I listen to all but "The Crusher" cd since I do not have that in my collection.
