Best Bathory Songs
The Top Ten
The arrangement & structure of this song is phenomenal. The riffs is a masterpiece. The transition is sleek!
A masterpiece that every Bathory fan should know. Actually, a masterpiece everyone who've listened to Black Metal should know.
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
This song is a Viking masterpiece
Bathory is excellent at what they do, which happens to be both black and Viking metal. This song is basically their crowning honor
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.
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.
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
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.
Quothon's vocals were extraordinarily great
My favorite Bathory song. Wonder why it doesn't have a higher rating
This song is too good to be this low, my favorite from Bathory
This is one of the finest songs ever crafted
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.
This is a masterpiece! when quorthon sings : Of Sun! every time I get goosebumps and eargasm :|
This could totally be a Slayer song.
This, to me, is the first black metal song --- bone-chilling vocal work, sinistrous atmosphere, and pulverizing riffs, their best track in my opinion.
Great song about a terrible imprisonment. I wonder who the caller is. Maybe an undead zombie?
Here my call from the grraaavve!
Faboulous song, a black metal masterpiece.
Second bathory song I heard and it got me hooked. The song is beautiful, nothing extreme, simple and so atmospheric it gives you goosebumps.
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.
The riff reminds me of Fight Fire with Fire.
Extreme to the max
How is this only 14? I think it should be number 1 due to how great the drumming is,
A song about Elizabeth Bathory.
Definitely my favorite from hammerhear
First Bathory song I ever heard, I love others but this one O have a special love because introduced me to a great band and I had to vote for it
A simple concept for a song that showcases the other side of the world that Bathory invokes with its music
This is what they play in Valhalla
Lord of the Rings
For me this is the best Bathory song
This is HEAVY!
Quorthon in his rawest musical form. Outstanding, traditional black metal.
Bathory's entire first album is a good listen for fast speedy Black Metal
Best Black Metal song by Bathory.
Outstanding...bathory can't be better than this
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!
Their best for sure
It's one of Bathory's more calmer songs since it's on one of his later albums. Anyways, this song is fantastic, the vocals especially.
So very very very very beautiful
it fills me with this pride of the northern lands
this feeling of conquering something big
its beauty in chaos...
