Heathen Warrior was awesome, despite poor production issues that made the sound feel a little hollow. That issue is completely fixed with Thunder & Steele :D Awesome album with a lot of fast, melodious songs about the warrior life, not that a couch potato like me would know what that is!
Ну и где здесь викинг-метал? Обычный дойч-пауэр с тупой как лом идеологией aka металлизм. Amon Amarth и то на викинг больше похожи, а главное, не занимаются тупым самовосхвалением через песню, в отличие от сабжа.
Holy shit, it's hard to imagine music better than this. 2 albums in (I own Headinge Northe and have just bought 'Heathen Warrior') and they've yet to contain a song that isn't an instant 5-star rating.
First Song of the new album is on ("Steelcrusader"). I think it's pretty nice, though it's not that fast, like many other songs on the album.
@Steelbound: Have you already listended to the whole "Thunder & Steele"-album?
I just talked to someone, who is a pre-listener of the new album "Thunder & Steele". He told me, that it has awesome refrains and that it is no more that melancholic like Heathen Warrior, but much more straight, dircet and speedy. He is a big Stormwarrior-Fan himself and he really loves the new album. Sounds great so far...
If you're able to read german, read this:
Turn the cross upside down, Feel the evil grow
Burn the churches to the ground, Satan's wicked show
Turn the cross upside down, No-one will be saved
Burn the churches to the ground, Thou shalt be depraved
HEAVY METAL LEADS US TO VICTORY OR VALHALLA, ON THE STORMS WE RIDE! BRING THE WARRIORS TO THEIR DESTINY! WE AWAIT THE BATTLE IN OUR HEARTS! ON OUR JOURNEY TO THE HAMMER WE RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! (fucking awesome)
