Best Bathory Songs


The Top Ten

1 A Fine Day to Die

Masterpiece! It's Just so beautiful And great - MoeinTPS

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

Not only Bathory's greatest song, but in the top 5 all time greatest metal songs. thing has it all.

2 One Rode to Asa Bay

When you listen to bathory, it's like you're having a dream. and you don't fully notice it till the song ends and you wake up and say : Oh My God, I wish I never woke up. this song does that to me. masterpiece song. love it so much - MoeinTPS


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

3 Enter the Eternal Fire


The greatest black metal riff! - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

You need 30 seconds into THE ETERNAL FIRE of addiction to this song, if you wanna start hearing out bathory this song will get you hooked no problem - Nutty Nyc

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.

4 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"

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

6 Equimanthorn

This song is too good to be this low, my favorite from Bathory

7 The Wheel of Sun

This is a masterpiece! when quorthon sings : Of Sun! every time I get goosebumps and eargasm :| - MoeinTPS

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

8 Call from the Grave

Here my call from the grraaavve!

Great song about a terrible imprisonment. I wonder who the caller is. Maybe an undead zombie?

9 Dies Irae

The riff reminds me of Fight Fire with Fire. - Brobusky

Extreme to the max - PureMayhem

10 The Golden Walls of Heaven

This could totally be a Slayer song. - Brobusky

The Contenders

11 The Lake

The chorus of this song is so incredibly epic. It gives me chills every time. Quorthon was a true genius. Every one of his songs shows it perfectly.

Second bathory song I heard and it got me hooked. The song is beautiful, nothing extreme, simple and so atmospheric it gives you goosebumps.

21 For All Those Who Died
22 Necromancy

The best on the album - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

This song needs to be higher man...if you listen carefully to this song and War by Burzum you will find out that Burzum was influenced by this song to make War. The riffs are very similar

This song is judt brutal. Really like the heavy bass in it. Would definitely be a perfect match for the scene in GoT where the White walkers charge the wall!
