Best Bathory Songs


The Top Ten

1 Enter the Eternal Fire Enter the Eternal Fire

If Tony Iommi wrote this riff, it would be considered the greatest riff in heavy metal. It's also proof black metal doesn't need to be fast to be brilliant. Also could be considered an influence on Burzum as it just rides that awesome riff through 80% of the song.

This song is absolutely amazing. - PhantomMilitia

2 A Fine Day to Die A Fine Day to Die

This is the anthem of all black metal music. If bathory hadn't come around, bands like mayhem, Burzum, satyricon, and Darkthrone would not be the same - ryanrimmel

No way no way! This should be first! The song keeps you up and never makes you tired. The half viking songs of Bathory are also great.

3 One Rode to Asa Bay One Rode to Asa Bay

This song is a Viking masterpiece - Ananya

Greatest Viking Metal song in history, its a masterpiece that tells the story of the Christianization of the Vikings fantasticaly, possibly one of the greatest songs in history, its perfect.

This song is one of the best of Bathory. As the instrumental parts of the song are great, and the lyrics are extraordinary. The song tells a story, about the Christianization of Scandinavia, and the awesome vocals of Quorthon, create a fantastic atmosphere.

4 Armageddon Armageddon
5 Woman of Dark Desires Woman of Dark Desires
6 Blood Fire Death Blood Fire Death

I love how is this perfectly between black and heavy metal. The vocals aren't growl but they doesn't seam normal either. And I love these choir aahs on the background. I would call it "atmospheric blackened heavy metal"

BEST SONG EVER... Lyrics, riffs and especially Quorthon's vocals... This is Bathory at it's best.
