I think Twilight of the Gods would have gone down as absolutely legendary if Quorthon had just done backing vocals (which I think he was able to do pretty well) and had brought on a more talented vocalist to front this album. The melodies here are simply fantastic and would have been fuckin' epic with a singer who could hit the notes perfectly. However, I don't particularly care for the Hammerheart track at the end which doesn't really mesh all that well with the rest of the album (though I get what he was going for) and just has such a cheap synthesized sound to it.

Ultimately I can (though, with difficulty) look past the vocals and enjoy what's here, but it could have been so much better. Take that more as a compliment to Quorthon's talent for crafting great instrumentals than an insult for him not being a very good clean singer.

Dear all,
My copy looks NM, but bas surface noise and cracks on calm parts. I have the feeling that it is the case for all copies. Could anyone say if he owns A perfect copy without any cracks ?

Probably the finest metal album ever cut to vinyl. Set on an epic scale that has never really been matched to this day. Although thoroughly outstanding at every turn. The album is singularly defined by its title track. Giving some real honest, poured from the soul social commentary that is still as relevant to todays world as it was when first recorded. Perhaps even more so nowadays, judging by how fast things seem to be going down the toilet these last few years..

The rest of the album is a more tempered extension of the subject matter that was touched upon in "Hammerheart", Quorthons previous album. With some strong Viking / Scandinavian culture themed songs and much improved musically through more complex arrangements and better production. These were very much the first of their kind (along with Hammerheart), and of course, providing the spark for the Viking Metal sub genre that we see today.

"Woe all small creatures, it's the Twilight of the Gods..."

Real Ragnarock n roll....
