I'd probably go with the Return. The debut is great and has a few of the greatest Bathory songs, but compared to stuff like "Total Destruction", "Bestial Lust" and "Sadist (Tormentor)" they don't really do as much for me as those songs. Also, with Under The Sign Of The Black Mark, it is good but not nearly as good as the first two.

The Return of the Darkness and Evil for me, although as far as I'm concerned the first 5 albums are killer. The guitar tone on the Return is fuckin jet black!

It's a tie between The Return and Under The Sign of The Black Mark. The debut though has excellent songs and it's charm, if you like, is that these are straight ahead catchy heavy metal tunes that have been roasted til black.

Veering a bit off topic here - inspite of how most people worship the first 3 Bathory albums I think that Blood Fire Death is a real stand out that often gets unfairly pushed to the side.

Love some of the tracks (Blood and Iron & To Enter Your Mountain esp) but overall its just way to overcooked in my opinion. Way too many BVs and I don't rate his singing voice at all on this record. Prefer the unpolished tone to his vocals on Hammerheart.

Not a truer statement in this entire thread.

Blood Fire Death is the culmination of Q's musical evolution through the first five years of Bathory - and it doesn't get any better than that. Old fans like me don't give a flying fuck which album is now considered blacker, faster, has the most evil guitar tone or was a springboard or direct inspiratinon for '90s black metal. Bathory transcends all that shit.

Blood Fire Death bores the fuck out of me. The thrash songs on it are overlong, and just lacking. The opener and closer kick tremendous amounts of ass. Blood Fire Death should've been an EP with just those two and maybe Holocaust.

Let me support your words, Bathory does not have worst or better album all are the perfect example of what metal should be.

for me, under the sign.. is my personal favorite.

not an easy choice picking favorites from 3 albums i would rate a perfect score 100 each.
debut is hellish, the return is devilish at twice the speed, and under the sign... is where i feel after reaching for hell, there was no turning back.

This. I also love B,F,D, but Under the Sign... is probably my overall favourite. I don't like anything after B,F,D though.

Damn this is close. The Return has slowly worked its way up as my favorite.
