5.0 out of 5 stars Let the Darkness begin... March 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic early black metal December 24, 2004
By ML91
Format:Audio CD
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars If I were to have one and only one album... August 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD
THE BEST ALBUM. No questions asked. Bathory destroys any of this mainstream crap metal seen currently in your local music shops. They are THE BLACK METAL BAND OF THE CENTURY, most noted and respected the world-over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart Of Evil January 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Masters of Black Metal October 4, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You have to be into this kind of thing to truly appreciate the art of Bathory. Screaching raw sound that will pump you up to the next level and beyond. Bands like this with their free sound and don't care what anyone else thinks mentality made it possible for heavy bands of today. Yes they are extreme in their art and not as produced as the bands of today but worth a listen to those who want to know where killer metal comes from.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Album That Kickstarted Black Metal! March 18, 2005
By p_drl
Format:Audio CD
Influenced by the likes of Motorhead and taking their sound to another level, Bathory created an exciting type of new heavy metal back in 1982. They blended the aggro-thrashings of heavy metal with garage punk, and added a terrifying type of anguished screams over the wall of sound... And this, ladies and gentleman, is what began black metal. While many hair bands took to singing about partying, women, drugs, and booze, Quorthon looked to much darker things of Satanism, the occult, and sacrificial rituals, later to be the blueprint for countless black metal bands.

The music here is simple, fast, heavy-hitting, and shows almost no technical merits except for an occasional solo. The drums focus on basic ride-snare patterns, the guitars churn out simple, yet catchy and effective rhythms based on power chords, and the bass seems almost non-existant. But this release must have made one heck of an impression years ago, especially with Quorthon's anguished, raspy screams forefronting the sound, which was unlike anything ever seen in metal at the time. His screams are a tad like Motorhead here, but would later develop on proceeding albums. The production is dirty, but holds a raw essence of the music, and perfectly suits it.

The songs here really don't have any differentiating features, and all follow basic verse-chorus structures played at hyper-speed. But this album has spirit and ambition, which would inspire a few young lads throughout the world to pick up their instruments and make music even more savage than this. To say the least, if you consider youself a metalhead in the least, this album is essential, along with all other Bathory albums up to "Twilight of the Gods", also worth checking out.
