"I am a newcomer to Bathory. I rank 5 stars here for honestly being one of the nastiest, skull-splitting brutal, clanking loud pieces of recorded music I have ever heard. The vocals are just plain scary. The music sounds like welded steel slaughter house machinery caked in dried blood and running on top gear. This album is that freakish weird insect under the rock that you picked up playing as a kid. It startles you initially and then you want to go back and look at it carefully again and again. At a loud volume this album rattles dental work and revisits ice hockey concussions. It's like being checked on the ice without a helmet by Cromagnon Man.

"Think of your favorite Black metal vocalist, album or band. There is a very good chance that Bathory inspired them. This was one of the first "real" Black Metal album's and so many years later, it is still one of the best. Between Quorthon's dark lyrics and throat ripping (incredible as well) vocals. That alone would make the album worth a BM fan's purchase. The drums are what you would exspect from Bathory, having ok production on them but keeping a really raw sound to them. The guitar work is also raw but a little more technical than the BM that would be released in the few years followed. The type of song range from the truly dark "Woman of Dark Desires" and "Enter the Eternal Fire" to songs which are short amounts of chaos "Chariots of Fire" and songs like "Equimanthorn" which has elements of both. All in all, this a great classic Black Metal album. It is my second favorite Bathory album behind only "Blood, Fire Death" Enjoy."

"This is what pure Black Metal is. This cd is is just killer and any Metal fan would really enjoy this. Ace was a true pioneer in this form of metal. Even though Venom and Celtic Frost were very influential to Black Metal Bathory was the very first 100% Black Metal Band. Come to think of it Venom and Bathory music wise have simularities but Ace was the first to use the Black Metal Vocals (aka Linda Blair Shrieks) and the guitar white noise feed back which is commonly used in Black Metal.

I own the first 3 Bathory albums but this by far my favorite and in my opinion Bathory's best.

If you are just getting into Bathory or Black Metal this album is a great starting place.
