Black/Viking/Thrash Metal | Label: Black Mark | Sweden
Bathory - the most mysterious and legendary metal band. Their influence on black metal and viking metal indescribable, the number of followers, imitators and admirers are not amenable to the account. The history of this Swedish project is shrouded in so many myths and legends that it is now difficult to separate truth from fiction. One thing not in doubt - this is one of the greatest events in modern music.
This group is the handiwork of only one person on behalf of Quorthon.
The band's name is taken from the infamous Hungarian countess, Elizabeth B®Ęthory.
Bathory was formed in Stockholm in 1983 by the 17 year old Quorthon. After various names and numerous line-up changes, the group finally settled on Bathory. Their first recording deal came that same year, when Quorthon managed to secure the consent of Tyfon Grammofon's boss, who was the main man's father, to record two tracks for the compilation Scandinavian Metal Attack. The tracks which he recorded gained unexpected attention by fans.
Soon afterward, Tyfon Grammofon contacted Quorthon and asked him to record a full-length album.
Although Venom's Black Metal (1982) was the first record to coin the term, it was Bathory's early albums, featuring Satanic lyrics, low-fi production and an inhuman vocal style, that defined the genre. Many fans have speculated that Venom was an influence on Bathory; however Quorthon has said in an 1985 interview with Kick Ass magazine that he only heard Venom after the first Bathory album was released. He also expressed his dislike of bands such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.
He has also stated the band's early work was influenced primarily by Black Sabbath, Mot?rhead, Discharge, G.B.H. and The Exploited.
Bathory's self-titled debut, and the subsequent releases, The Return and Under the Sign of the Black Mark, are now regarded as major influences on the Norwegian bands which extended black metal's musical progression and popularity in the beginning of the 1990s.
The first signs of what was to follow appeared on what some fans consider to be Bathory's best album Blood Fire Death, on which some of the tracks the pace had slowed down to allow for a more epic songwriting approach. It was also here that the Viking theme was introduced. Most of the musical elements of black metal were still present however. It was with the release of Hammerheart that Bathory surprised many of its fans.
The style had now drastically changed towards less aggressive, more epic and atmospheric music; the lyrics dealt with themes about Vikings and Norse mythology. Bathory had become pioneers in yet another genre within the world of extreme music - that of Viking metal.The style of Hammerheart was further demonstrated on the subsequent Twilight of the Gods and Blood on Ice.
With 1994's Requiem, Bathory changed style once more, this time turning to retro-thrash in the vein of 1980s Bay area thrash bands. In recent years, critics have seen Bathory's output as increasingly erratic, as the band has returned again to Viking themes and, with the Nordland albums of 2002 and 2003, largely abandoned the retro-thrash sound of the mid-1990s in favour his more popular, more epic style for which he is best known.
Bathory have been cited as an influence by musicians as diverse as Metallica, Marilyn Manson, Cradle of Filth, Eric Hoffman and Brian Hoffman of Deicide, Black Crucifixion, Beherit, Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins, Opeth and Dimmu Borgir. An early member of the band was Jonas ?kerlund, the music video and film director.
Quorthon died of a heart attack on June 3, 2004 in his appartment in H?sselby, Stockholm. Ace B?rje Forsberg was the name written on Quorthon's obituary, but his real birth name was Tomas. If someone asked him the real name he always gave invented ones: Runka Snorkr?ka (Wanked snot (hodded) crow), P?r...
Note Black Mark is the label owned by Quorthon and his father B?rje "Boss" Forsberg.
