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

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.

4 Equimanthorn

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

5 The Wheel of Sun

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

6 Ring of Gold

This is what they play in Valhalla

7 Hammerheart

Beautiful song - Caleb9000

Amazing! - Oliwally

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 Oden's Ride Over Nordland
10 Valhalla

The Contenders

11 Baptise in Fire and Ice V 1 Comment
12 Holocaust
13 Woman of Dark Desires
14 Twillight of the Gods

Their best for sure - Fakol

15 Vinland
16 Call from the Grave

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

17 The Lake

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

18 Shores in Flames

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

19 Hades

Outstanding...bathory can't be better than this - Ananya

Best Black Metal song by Bathory. - GREYBOYY

20 Born for Burning

When I heard it...I got so much mesmerized that I can't say - Ananya
