Nothing quite compares to placing a record on one's record player, placing the needle on the vinyl, & absorbing that particular sound that only a record can emminate - soft crackles & all. Just light some candles in a darkened room, burn some incense, & experience the evocation; so much the better if you happen to possess a novelty grammophone connected to perfectly placed speakers.

The first time I ever saw this recording, I was in a Moby Disc Records Store, where I would always peruse the imports section. I was immediately drawn to the striking cover, which bears the demonic image of the Baphomet Goat --- a veritable bust which would look quite handsome as a statuette in one's parlor. I eventually sent away for a poster & a T-shirt bearing this image. I also eventually met with Quorthon at a local Metal store, where I got the poster & the LP signed, with a firm handshake to boot.

On the original record, the Black Goat had red burning eyes. On the back cover, the songtitles were printed in bloodred Olde English lettering, imposed upon a large blazing white pentagram on black backround. Again, quite striking. It no doubt found itself on many a xian pyre, in the hopes of ridding the land of the evil it wrought. Indeed, I have seen this very record on the "death row" of records destined to be burned, as I went undercover amongst the xian deathcult's "occult seminars" {a couple of instances in order to view My own artwork which had been first confisctaed by school staff, xeroxed, then eventually returned to Me}.

This is pure Black Metal, with 9 songs, including the Intro.

Anyone interested in the origins of black metal will love this. While "Bathory" is not the "first black metal album" as some suggest - Quorthon (Tomas Forsberg) was obviously influenced by Venom, and possibly the first Slayer album also - this album undoubtedly inspired many of the more recent black metal bands (Satyricon, etc.). Quorthon wrote this album when he was 18 years old, and he recorded it himself at "Heavenshore Studios"(a garage) in 36 hours; not surprisingly, the music and lyrics are somewhat basic, and the sound quality is a bit rough (especially the vocals on some tracks). Don't let this deter you, though; this is great stuff. In my opinion the final song, "War", is a bit weak, but the other 7 songs and the intro (which is a bit too long) are excellent. The songs are for the most part up-tempo, but not ridiculously fast like some black metal bands. Most of the songs sound at least somewhat different, which I find very impressive coming from a 19 year old songwriter. Albums on which all of the songs are played at the same speed bore me; the somewhat slower "Raise the Dead" (not the old Venom song) is a nice change of pace. The lyrics? Pretty basic stuff, but on a groundbreaking album like this, that can be easily overlooked. Hey, how many black metal albums have great lyrics anyway?

Bathory's 1st album is an essential black metal milestone that no true headbanger should be without!

I first heard Bathory in 1993 when "Jubelium Vol. 1" was released. In my always never-ending search for the heaviest of bands, I took the chance and bought some Bathory without even hearing it. The cover intrigued me with it's satanic imagery and reminded me of Venom, the FIRST black/thrash/death/speed metal band. During 1993, I was listening to bands like Slayer, Danzig, Napalm Death, Autopsy and Cathedral. Bathory was soon added to my music collection and I have been a fan since then.

Bathory was basically a one-man band led by Quorthon, a very serious musician and personality in the early black metal scene. Mayhem, Darkthrone and Emperor were heavily influenced by the satanic lyrics and viking epics. Quorthon believed heavily in viking gods and most of his music after the first 2 albums was based upon the lives and battles of norsemen.

Bathory's debut is raw. It's not one of the best recorded albums I've heard but the point gets across and is very listenable. What can I say about the songs? All are early black/death classics. Each song a gem.

If you like real heavy metal, then I suggest you check out not only Bathory's 1st album but all of them. I never bought one that I didn't like.

I also just found out that on June 7th of this year, Qorthon died of heart Failure in his home. He was 39 years old and was working on a new album. May Odin be at his side as he walks the long road to Valhalla, for it is truly the twilight of a god!

This is pure black metal at at its roots, preceeded only by Venom in 82. Tomas Forsberg is amazing, seeing how he is the only one in the band. He created an album not only leading to other greats but that totally stormed the gates of the early 80's. This is not to be confused with symphonic black metal, this is not COF or Dimmu, for those of you new to the genre. This is stripped to its core, no sustaining atmosphere is provided by keyboard. But if you are into black metal at all this is at the heart of it. A must have for any metalheads collection.
