"Quorthon, the Lord of Chaos, the Emissary of Evil, the Founder of The most evil, most hated, most diguisting and sick style of metal ever...BLACK METAL. This is the defining album for Black Metal, Bathory's debut album. It is pure evil and anger portrayed through music.

Quorthon started Bathory just for kicks. He made two demo songs called "Sacrifice" and "The Return of the Darkness and Evil", which were placed on a metal compilation titled "Scandinavian Metal Attack". Of all the songs on this compilation, Quorthon's were the sickest and most sought after by all listeners. They liked what they were hearing and wanted plenty more of it. So Quorthon now had a record deal, and was able to stop mowing lawns for spending cash and just make songs and get paid for it. He drew out the goat head, remade Sacrifice and concocted a few more "spells" like "Reaper", "Necromansy", "War" and some others. With the use of heavily distorted guitars, thin drum sounds, blistering bass and growling, puking vocals all done in very cheap and horrible production.... Quorthon created the sound of Black Metal. With lyrics completely about the Lord of Hell (Hades, Lucifer, Beherit, Behemoth call him what you may)...this was not the kind of music that KISS rockers were headbanging to at Saturday Night parties. This was for the true metal worshipers...this was real metal! And it scared many. All the kids who said they were "Total hardcore Metalheads" because they listen to Ozzy Osbourne or Dio were practicly pissing their shorts when they heard what true metal sounded like.

Psychotic album, psychotic vocals, sick guitar sick everything. Bathory's debut album is a classic for any real metal head and black-metal head. Pure chaos on a comapact disc. This album RULES. HAIL and R.I.V. Quorthon forever. Beware-posers and emos will probably have a seizure or faint when hearing this real metal,(all the better or us though!)"
