In the Metalion book, during one of the interviews with Quorthon, he explains that the cover of "Under The Sign of The Black Mark" was a photo taken on a stage using theater props between acts of a play. ...

While this part of the story *seems* plausible (again, we are talking about Quorthon here...), the part that seems completely fucking ridiculous is that Quorthon claims the body builder is on the stage wearing a "Bathory mask" for the famous photo.. Shocked Question Does anyone actually believe that is a mask in the picture ? It looks exactly like the goat head from the debut, etc, which we all know he stole from an old book, but claimed that it was a self created collage from horror magazines.... Rolling Eyes

So does anyone buy the 'mask' claim ? I can't see how it's possible to have a mask like that (unless it's just like a printed piece of paper with a rubber band holding on the guys head or something). So, while the rest of the story seems fairly truthful, this comment made me go grab the lp of my shelf and examine it...... seems like BS to me, but why lie about that ?


Quorthon was about as reliable as Varg Vikernes.

No Google hits for the bodybuilder dude's name either (also he is not in the Swedish phonebook,) though if someone posted his name and that other picture on some Swedish bodybuilding forum I'm sure that part would be cleared up pretty soon.


Maybe his name is simply anagram in swedish for "I lie a lot"?


Ah fuck it, I forgot all Swedes have a middle name. There really is a person with that name, born in 1962 which would make him 24 or 25 in 1987. Not that this makes me buy the rest of the story, but...

Lying is total satanic and total metal.

kids, if you want to be satan, you should lie about everything and rip off people in trades and ripoff people on wholesale scam orders and sell bootlegs on ebay and call them real and sell shit you dont actually own.

Lucifer, the lord of lies!

Some people take this too seriously! Laughing

But in certain view, everyone involved in Metal Underground are fucking false people and liars. Per example, how many bands talks about violence, death, war, desecrations, and in real life are nothing but fucking nerd morons who don't know a fucking clue about what reality is.

False yeah if false = pretentious.

A liar would be someone who writes lyrics about how he kills people and fights wars and desecrates virgin sluts when he doesn't do any of that. I don't think metal musicians are self-centric in their lyrics like that, they more or less talk about war, death, and blasphemy in a general conceptual way.

Most goatfagoblasphemy musicians are not liars but just pretentious, they want to live in a fantasy world of muscles and goats and rape but they are stuck in reality.

If metal lyrics were reality, we would all be macho's who fuck twenty girls each night, Scandinavia would be a Great Power, no churches exist and non-European people don't exist [anymore] (only exception: those guys with the slanted eyes who live on various islands full of volcano's).

Yep, he lied a lot. There is no way that thing is a paper mache mask. Also, you just need to read interviews done at the time of different records to see he kept contradicting himself.

Also he claimed that got "Quorthon" out of a book about demons and Angels, but I wonder if that was true?

I still love his music tho.

I have often wondered about the hair/fur thing under the word "Mark".

Cryptographers aware! After all the gullible, all too gullible ranting in this thread, the temptation to post this horrifically long interview with Quorthon on the myths, truths and stand-up jokes assembled in the name of Bathory is just too much. Who knows, in addition to all the goof-spotting and OCD-tickling, it might even entertain you.

I think each and every one of us is dutifully aware of this, chief.

OK, I wasn't all sure. The bubble I live in is very small. It couldn't have been online 'til moments ago anyway, so for those about to Internet, we salute you.

Nothing can ever ruin the greatness of Bathory, even if Quorthon was a woman.
