Best Bathory Songs


The Top Ten

1 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.

2 A Fine Day to Die

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

3 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 Oden's Ride Over Nordland
5 Ring of Gold

This is what they play in Valhalla

6 Valhalla
7 Vinland
8 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

9 Twillight of the Gods
10 Woman of Dark Desires

The Contenders

11 Equimanthorn

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

12 Hammerheart

Beautiful song - Caleb9000

Amazing! - Oliwally

13 Holocaust
14 Call from the Grave

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

15 Baptise in Fire and Ice V 1 Comment
16 Shores in Flames

My favorite Bathory song. Wonder why it doesn't have a higher rating

17 Armageddon
18 Sacrifice
19 The Golden Walls of Heaven

This could totally be a Slayer song. - Brobusky

20 Dies Irae

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

Extreme to the max - PureMayhem
