Artist:  Abandoned
   Title: Thrash You
   Label: Dockyard 1 

This is a lovely pack of CDs to get your mits on.  It is a remaster of Amon Amarths 1997 release; however it is still as relevant today as it was 12 years ago.  The remastered disc shows off these 8 fabulous songs to their best advantage.  The 'Dragon Flight Across The Universe' has beautifully melodies and along with great vocals is a joy to listen to.  'Victorious March' is a true battle cry of epic proportions.  Throughout the disc, what stood out to me the most were the haunting vocals of Johan Hegg.  He has the ability to sing in different styles that helps Amon Amarth stand out from the crowd.  

The true test of this disc was if it could be translated into a live environment.  This test is passed with flying colours for all to hear on the bonus Live CD.  Not only are Amon Amarth a great band who have the ability to appeal to rockers from all genres, they are also a band to respect.  They have worked hard and played hard to get this far and I look forward to seeing them in Dublin in October.
