Bathory, a legend among extreme metallers and especially Black metal fans, without doubt one of the most important bands in Black metal history. Period. "Bathory", "The Return", "Under The Sign Of The Black Mark" and "Hammerheart": they have all left their mark on the face of metal. Another undeniable classic from the warrior mind of Quorthon, leader of Bathory, is the fourth album named "Blood Fire Death".

"You are walking out of here with that," my metal friend commanded, nodding towards the copy of this album with a five-dollar price tag in my hand. "You won't be sorry."

I had come into the black metal genre rather later than I had gotten into other genres, and although I like it now, it was a bit of an acquired taste for me personally. With such a profusion of bands and very few universally agreed-upon classics, I was looking for a good place to start. Luckily, even the most elitist black metaller would have no issue starting with the legendary Bathory and this incredible classic.

Dont really agree, this owns all other Bathory if you ask me (which I'm sure you were all going to). Under the Sign is a fine album but not a patch on this. Probably the finest album of its era. Exemplifying early black metal whilst looking forward.

Not a perfect album,but very nearly. Two of the tracks sounded very similar in terms of guitar work, but apart from that this remains one hell of a classic album\m/

This blows any black metal work Bathory's done right out of the water. Amazing atmosphere and pinnacle song working.

Classic! Musically, the majority of the songs are still Black/Thrash. Only a few tracks add the Viking sound to them. epic though!

A begging of ''epic'' era, old good Bathory, still thrashy, venom style, but more ''viking'' influence, Scandinavian lyrics, more viking thematic, fast, aggressive, old school Bathory what we all know and love, songs as Fine Day To Die, Blood, Fire, Death , are legends and true Odin worshipers will understand it
