They are a melodic death metal band from Sweden. Whoever the hell hinks they are black metal is a complete and total fucktard.
The band is know for their synchronised headbanging and viking themed lyrics. They took their band name from J.R.R. Tolkiens "The Lord of the Rings". It means "Mount Doom" in Sindarin, an elvish language invented by Tolkien.
Man, Amon Amarth kick so much ass, they are my favorite band.
amon amarth is quite possibly the best metal band ever. epic lyrics touching on norse and pagan mythology. melodic yet heavy guitar riffs and brutal drums. this is the best

Who ever said Amon Amarth was Black Metal is a fucking complete idiot. They are Viking Death Metal, retard. And yes, they are the most kickass band ever and yes, they are from Sweden.
+Did you hear that awesome Viking Death Metal Band?
-No, what's their name?
+Why Amon Amarth, of course!
Amon Amarth is a Melodic Viking Death metal band from Sweden that was started in 1992. They kick major ass, and have well written lyrics. Seriously, Dragonforce
could learn a thing or two from the songwriter. They have an excellent sound, and they are one of the best heavy metal bands of modern times. This is a band that TRUE metal fans appreciate.
Amon Amarth is a band with music that reminds all the TRUE metal fans why we love this genre.

A Swedish black metal band that Opeth
's drummer, Martin Lopez, used to be in. Amon Amarth is taken from the Lord of the Rings, it is the name of a region of middle earth.
Amon Amarth split up, what ?
Jeff Marjama: When you call a band Swedish you might as well be calling it viking rock/metal. They are not death metal. They lack most elements of even a vaguely death metal band.
If you wanted to get technical, asshole, you could say Amon Amarth are Swedish Viking/Folk/Black metal
