Do you like melodic death? Then yes.

Get Once Sent, Versus the World, With Oden on Our Side. Those three should make you a fan.

I'll echo what DapperDan said. The Avenger and The Crusher are also great. Avoid Fate of Norns, though. That is probably their weakest effort. Their latest isn't all that great either..

i'd describe them as the AC/DC of melodic death metal. If you enjoy them, you pretty much like everything. I'd agree that Fate of Norms is a bit weaker. I'd put Twilight of the Thunder Gods as my favorite. Good drinking tunes.

Fate of Norns is a weird one for me. Felt less powerful, but still has some good tunes worth checking out. I consider it a weak attempt at their older sound, but I still prefer it to Twilight and later. Everything from Twilight Of The Thunder Gods and later is a more commercial, almost upbeat sound. I've lost interest in them since that album.

So yeah, Once Sent From the Golden Halls, Vs The World, and With Oden At Our Side are all essential. And if you can get the 2 disc version of Vs The World, it also has their first EP included.

All the albums sound the same. Start anywhere.

You're welcome.

Vs the world is seriously overrated. Fate of norms is seriously underrated. Oden and situr rising are good latter albums. Crusher and avenger are interchangable and forgettable.

Fate of Norns was always my favourite!

It's been a long time since I listened to these guys, I should remedy that.

Totally agree, this is my favorite - the song "Fate of Norns" is my favorite from them.

I started with the 2 disc version of Vs The World, as it was their new album at the time and it also included their first EP .

Saw them in concert on that tour , about a month after I got the album :

the line up was:

Kreator, Nile, Vader, Amon Amarth, Goatwhore.

When in the mood for Melodic DM, I still reach for VS. The World .
Enjoy both discs.
