Viking’s debut Do or Die has always maintained a distinction of drawing mixed responses right since the time of its release. The two factors that form such varied opinions are the sheer energy and fury of this record, much to the liking of many thrash metal freaks whereas the haters find the production very slim giving this a rather dry feel instead. The latter also argue that this is pretty much a poor man’s Dark Angel. My picks on this album would definitely be the insanity driven Militia of Death and the epic Valhalla, the latter probably being the best song on this album with some cool lyrics and powerful riffs. The second half of the album continues the thrash fest without compromise. While Viking were not really making any original breakthroughs in music, what they did succeed in doing was taking the intensity a few notches higher.

Do or Die" - I am sure that the cheeky guys of Viking faced all professional sound engineers in their neighbourhood with these two alternatives. Well, each and every engineer decided to die instead of doing the job. In other words, the production of this debut constitutes its biggest defect. Everything sounds undifferentiated, unbalanced and sticky. Production is the only place that this album lacks. But back to what I was originally saying - I really don't understand all of the bad hype this band has gotten. Viking are kick ass, and they prove it on every song on this record. I can't pick a single track that I would say is bad. Every song I like for its own reasons.
