The viking era of Bathory is great, but nothing beats Under the Sign of the Black Mark.

Must download (and then order) the Nordland records. Never actually listened to them having heard so many people being disappointed. I'm really into Destroyer of Worlds and Requiem, but aye, Octogon wasn't very good. Listened to Blood on Ice today, inspired by this thread and it's still a great record. Perfect one for a set of good quality headphones and solitude.

Nordland I is mandatory.One of the best Bathory albums.
II has some good moments ,but no so strong.

I have one copy (cd) of the first one for sale/ trade.

Of course, both raw and epic BATHORY is absolutely essential.

The first six albums are just a perfect progressive run, including absolute brilliant artworks. This also goes for "Blood on Ice", which belonged in that time of course. The rest is mediocre-bad.

I can only think of Sabbath with Ozzy and 80ies Iron Maiden that achieved a similar level of consistency regarding quality/quantiy.

Not to mention that in doing so, Quorthon innovated several styles that live on with us today.

He was one of the Ancient Ones.

1984 - 1987 : excellent (I'm spinning "Under..." LP right now. Pure classic.)
1988 - 1991 : amazing

1994 - 2001 : disappointment, except "Blood On Ice" - this LP is topnotch

2002 - 2003 : Nordland era was again really essential.

Under the Sign of the Black Mark is still BM album number ONE for me!

Bands like Moonsorrow, Thyrfing, Graveland, Windir, Falkenbach, etc.. all owe their entire sound to the viking era of Bathory.

They are influenced, but don't owe entire sound. Calling any of those bands viking Bathory worship/clones would be equally retarded to calling second wave BM bands as early Bathory worship...

Nordland I and II are 2 of my favorite metal albums. They do not trump the earlier material, nor does it them. With the exception of a couple of albums, Quorthon has produced an enormous amount of awesome, influential shit. It goes without saying that his attempts to recreate the "viking" atmosphere ought not to cheapened by the seemingly endless number of bands with 14 tin whistles, a hurdy gurdy, 3 flutes, eye-patches, violinists, keyboards (awful synth sounds by the way), and so on, that call themselves Viking Metal. Apparently Vikings come from Southern Ontario, these days. A diverse lot, I'd say.

Morrigans Headcult is a bit like the missing link between BFD and Hammerheart..would recommend that one to anyone who likes that Bathory period. The vocals sound as close to Ace as I think you can get without him actually singing on the songs himself.

Morrigan/Mayhemic Truth is probably the best Bathory (Viking-era) worship, together with Iuvenes, Falkenbach and Hades.
