This album is definitely an outstanding comeback to Bathory.

''The Lake'' is by far my favourite bathory song...

BOI & Hammerheart are the best albums to me.. Quorthon's vocals isn't as good as Hammerheart but still really cool..

Definitely. Although Nordland I and II are also awesome.

They are. If Bathory never released Requiem, Octagon, and Destroyer of Worlds, their discography would be flawless.

If they never released Requiem and Octagon and got rid of the bad songs from Destroyer of Worlds and instead added good songs, their discography would be absolutely perfect.

Indeed! I have no clue what was going on in Quorthon's brain when he thought using an almost St. Anger level bad snare tone and mega juvenile lyrics was a good idea. I'm glad most material after that was high quality viking metal.

From what I heard, Twilight of the Gods was going to be the final Bathory album and that Requiem was going to be a different project. However, he then decided to release it under the Bathory name.

Well it was sure a disgrace to the Bathory name after quite possibly their greatest album.

Yeah, it was. I've also heard that the backlash from the hardcore Bathory fans after Octagon was so extreme he had to release a "real" Bathory album to calm their nerves which was this album.

And he certainly delivered. At least Octagon was not quite as horrible as St. Anger though. It's strange how some of the greatest bands ever release both classics and garbage.

Well, it is almost impossible to just produce classic albums, especially if you have released alot of albums like Bathory, Burzum and even Iron Maiden.

For sure. Iron Maiden may not have any bad albums, but No Prayer for the Dying and Virtual XI are not too far from bad.

Agreed. No Prayer for the Dying is the closest to bad that they've done. The X Factor and Virtual XI does have a few good songs, whereas No Prayer for the Dying has almost none.

The 90s was not a good time for Maiden, but the other 11 albums range from 3.5-5.
