Bathory

Bathory is "one of the pioneers of the first wave of black metal music (as well as viking metal)." Tomas Forsberg AKA "Quarthon" was guitars, vocals, music and lyrics (1983–2004) and all instruments (1991–2004). Sadly, Quorthon died of a heart attack on June 3, 2004 in his appartment in Hässelby, Stockholm.

A few days ago I said I would post some "Viking Metal" and this is a pioneer of the genre (or theme to be precise). Very chilling and epic, fairly clean vocals that aren't tacky (like a lot of Power Metal etc.), check it out!

Sounds like Bathory is a little too hardcore for my tastes.

Thanks for the post though. It's good to try out new types of music.

Bathory are one of my favorite metal bands. My favorite albums have to be Hammerheart and Blood Fire Death!

Quorthon is in Valhalla right now :D

Little too hardcore for me but interesting nonetheless. Good find.

Not bad. Interesting to say the least. Thank you for sharing!

Bathory, fuck yeah! They are a cult band.
If I remember well, they took their name from a Venom's song, "Countess Bathory" (who was a woman that liked to kill virgins and bath in their blood)
