Best Bathory Songs


The Top Ten

1 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

2 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.

3 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.

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

5 Equimanthorn

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

6 Shores in Flames

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

7 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

8 Call from the Grave

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

9 The Golden Walls of Heaven

This could totally be a Slayer song. - Brobusky

10 Ring of Gold

This is what they play in Valhalla

The Newcomers

? Father to Son

Amazing riffs and epic lyrics, no need to say more.

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

Extreme to the max - PureMayhem
