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
