BATHORY HAMMERHEART reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
Originally, Bathory had recorded Blood On Ice as a followup to Blood Fire Death, but on reflection Quorthon was concerned that the loyal Bathory fanbase wouldn't embrace that album's folky-thrashy-operatic brand of epic storytelling metal. So instead the band released Hammerheart, which took a similar approach to songwriting but added masses of black metal riffs to create an incredible wall of sound, and a revolutionary album which served as the blueprint for much Viking metal to come. (In particular, Enslaved's career has been based on first learning to match the sound of Hammerheart, and then taking its progressive inclinations still further.)

Leaning more and more towards long, epic tracks based around the sagas of the pagan North and more or less abandoning the band's Satanic past, Hammerheart completes the sonic transformation begun on Blood Fire Death in admirable form and is the second masterpiece from Bathory's classic Viking metal era.

As if it wasn't enough to give us the first true taste of black metal, Quorthon went ahead and gave us viking metal as well. The result? Another influential album by this crafted by this glorious gentleman: Hammerheart.

If you're not getting the epic feeling as "Shores In Flames", then you don't know the meaning of the term. That song alone hooked me on that album, but that wasn't all. The "whoa-oh-oh-oh" in the pre-choruses of "Valhalla" and Quorthon's vox hitting the high notes (so to speak) of the pre-choruses of "From Father to Son" are awesome.

Then we have the legendary "One Rode to Asa Bay", Bathory's only music video. What a way to end this album! It's a really somber viking ballad about the Christianization of the North. Quorthon couldn't have chosen a better way to end this album.

I'm really sad Bathory never played live. All of these songs would sound epic played live. Especially in open air.
