I like Amon Amarth, too.

So what characteristics make up 'Viking Metal'?

If it is the subject of the lyrics, then Leaves' Eyes are, too. For example, the album Vinland Saga was inspired by Viking Leif Eriksson. All the songs are directed toward supporting the central theme: the crossing of the Atlantic Ocean to Greenland and North America (Newfoundland or New Found Land). The album Njord as well is about Vikings, Norsemen, and Nordic myths and gods. Also, their stage set up includes a Drekar.

Drekar are known from historical sources, such as the 13th century Göngu-Hrólfs Saga (the Saga of Rollo). Here, the ships are described as elegant and ornately decorated, and used by those who went raiding and plundering. According to the historical sources the ships' prows carried carvings of menacing beasts, such as dragons and snakes, allegedly to protect the ship and crew, and to ward off the terrible sea monsters of Norse mythology. It is however likely that the carvings, like those on the Oseberg ship, might have had a ritual purpose, or that the purported effect was to frighten enemies and townspeople. No true dragon ship, as defined by the sagas, has been found by archaeological excavation.

I haven't explored this sub-genre beyond these two....Give me time....

On June 25th, Amon Amarth Deceiver Of The Gods will be released. I've got a copy on pre-order and I am waiting patiently for it to eventually arrive.

Hell yes! Bring on the Vikings! Turisas is pretty badass but I prefer Amon Amarth. They will always be the best.
