Best Bathory Songsne6tastnika
The Top Ten
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.
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.
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
Bathory is excellent at what they do, which happens to be both black and Viking metal. This song is basically their crowning honor
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.
This song is too good to be this low, my favorite from Bathory
This is the greatest song in Bathory's entire discography. A proggy, doom/Viking epic that marches on with pain for twelve minutes straight. And Quorthon's vocals are as stron as ever. - Caleb9000
This is what they play in Valhalla
Beautiful song - Caleb9000
Amazing! - Oliwally
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"
Beautiful song. - Brobusky
BEST SONG EVER... Lyrics, riffs and especially Quorthon's vocals... This is Bathory at it's best.
Quothon's vocals were extraordinarily great - Ananya
Their best for sure - Fakol
Great song about a terrible imprisonment. I wonder who the caller is. Maybe an undead zombie?
Second bathory song I heard and it got me hooked. The song is beautiful, nothing extreme, simple and so atmospheric it gives you goosebumps.
My favorite Bathory song. Wonder why it doesn't have a higher rating
Outstanding...bathory can't be better than this - Ananya
Best Black Metal song by Bathory. - GREYBOYY
When I heard it...I got so much mesmerized that I can't say - Ananya
