Bathory-Twilight of the Gods (1991)

Third album of the viking-era Bathory... this is hands-down my favorite Bathory release, and in my opinion, one of the most memorable and moving viking metal albums i've ever heard. I have nothing but good things to say about this album... everything that was started on the previous two albums, is perfected here: Epic atmosphere, beautifully crafted songs, wonderful folk melodies, march-like, anthem-quality metal tunes, interspersed with delicate acoustic melodies...everything here is WONDERFUL! If you only own one Bathory album, make it this one. HIGHLY recommended. Black Mark Productions.
