Bathory is a band which really covers a broad spectrum of emotions. They have their Black Metal stuff, which is really gritty, raw, and battle-themed, and then they have albums like Twilight Of The Gods. Like more of a viking power metal sounding album, this one features insanely epic atmospheres, powerful riffs and clean vocals. Now, Quorthon is NOT a good vocalist when it comes down to his singing, and that is clearly apparent as soon as they come in. His singing is usually off key, overly cheesy, and his transitions from a high to low pitch is quite rocky and obviously troublesome. Putting that aside, though, we have a marvel of epic viking metal with some of the most insane guitar work ever to come from this band. Solos and grandiose riffs abound in this amazing spectacle of what instruments are capable of doing to human emotions, and where they are able to take us.

Twilight Of The Gods is Quorthon's magnum opus. Not only is it the crowning achievement of
viking metal, but it is truly Quorthon at the height of his powers. Unbelievably impassioned
vocals, epic, ethereal and almost religious lyrics (the viking religion of course),
expansive arrangements, epic progressive songwriting, catchy AND powerful melodies, and of
course amazing riffs. Every single song is excellent, with the title track being a top-five
Bathory song. Most of all however, it is mature and outright beautiful for most of the run-
time. It is an intimate, emotionally charged, artful spiritual and ultimately powerful work
of music. Truly a masterpiece.

Beautiful and probably the most mature Quorthons work, dignified successor of Hammerheart with more classical influences and production that is more fine than rough.

This might actually deserve a higher rating. The classical influences really make it stand out.
