Commemorating its 10th anniversary in release, Metal Blade Records offers a special two-disc edition of Amon Amarth's debut album, 1998's ONCE SENT FROM THE GOLDEN HALL, one of the crowning achievements in brutal Viking metal. Extraordinarily melodic, with an ample supply of infectious riffs, the band quickly became renowned in the metal community. The album also received notoriety for being engineered by Hypocrisy front man Peter T?gtgren, and the band's drummer at the time was Martin Lopez (Opeth). This special edition contains new artwork and the previously unreleased track "Siegreicher Marsch," a German-language version of the song "Victory March." Also included is a bonus disc featuring a live recording from 2008 of the album in its entirety.
