Well, before you read this review, just forget all you know about black metal! Forget all those modern black metal bands, forget all those awesome symphonies and forget even the epic viking albums of Bathory. For all the young metallers that don't know much about the history of black metal and listen often to Cradle Of Filth, this album (maybe) will sound like the worst thing ever made, but there is much history behind this release and all of Bathory, that I will explain. Now we will see what black metal was before... before...

Rating: 8 Only one word i can say for this album...timeless. Production is not the best, but id like to see anyone else try and do as good a job as quorthon did with this album. Fucking awesome debut\m/

Rating: 8 Awesome debut is correct. So raw, so dirty. It's like early Venom albums, except slightly more extreme

Wow, so "Necromansy" and the Burzum song, "War"......Can that be considered a "rip off" or did Varg get Quorthon's permission?

Well, for me this single album is better than all venom discography I also noticed the similarity of these two songs, but I think it's just coincidence.

So glad someone else mentioned this, I always thought they sounded like the same song too.

Actually, it can be considered a rip-off. Varg recorded War for us to remember Bathory legendary debut.

I mean, who'll ever forget this album? :lol It's amongst my favourite thrash/speedy metal album ever, if not, my favourite.

  Sound thrash metal to me not black metal....but still great album.
Nick K. - 12.11.2013 at 19:49  
  Outstanding Debut. Lots of unforgettable Songs.:)

  To be honest if band would play like this all time it would not ne as good and reach its glory as it is today
Bathery as I know and all know(yes i did know band before played speedy, thasrhy sound of metal) is more epic, more 8min somgs
This album is not week but not super good, maybe most overated from early 80's from Swedish bands, but it has some meaning also, what turns it as kult icon to worship

Rating: 10 Legendary Sweden Band named Bathory made this awesome album. The Bad of this album is just about quality! .Like a Venom,but many Black metal fans agreed about this album is first black metal album because of the instrument is little diffrent than Venom, and more wicked
