BATHORY / Blood Fire Death (1988)

Blood Fire Death is not just a collection of quality songs, it's a truly ground-breaking, momentous achievement, the importance of which can’t be stressed enough.  The use of acoustics, the Viking symbolism, the choirs, the thundering intro, the cleaner vocals, the pounding drums, the torturing wail of the guitars, the pure fucking Armageddon heaviness of it all was something that the world had never experienced before.  It changed the face of metal forever, and made Quorthon a living legend.

Songs of Note: Oden's Ride Over Nordland; A Fine Day to Die
