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

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

3 Equimanthorn

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

4 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

5 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.

6 Holocaust
7 Baptise in Fire and Ice

Definitely my favorite from hammerhear

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"

27 For All Those Who Died

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!
