That's how most people explain their Amon Amarth love...funny.
I mean come on, viking metal by a band from Stockholm with their name taken from a mountain from Lord of The Rings? 'Course it's funny.
Mastodon kick Trivium's ass though. Can't believe people call Trivium "the new Metallica"...
You know, Mastodon is one of those bands I've always meant to give a listen and just never got around to...which is weird considering that I listen to a fair amount of metal. If you're saying that they're better than Trivium though, I'll definitely have to make that a priority.
Yeah, that comparison of Trivium to Metallica is putting that band on way too high of a pedestal.
