    :kickass: *raises frosty frothing mug to Quorthon's memory*

    "When the wind cries out my name
    And time has come for me to die
    Then wrap me in my cape
    And lay my sword down at my side

    Then place me on a ship of Oak
    And let it drift with tide
    Let the flames purify my soul
    On its way to hall up high
    "

    from 'Shores in Flames

    "Northern winds, take my song up high,
    To the Hall of glory in the sky.
    So its gates shall greet me open wide,
    When my time has come to die
    ."

    from 'Song to Hall Up High'


    Odin guide your son home and watch over him that he may he rest in eternal peace.

    I was never big into Bathory, but it is ashamed to see an artist die at a fairly young age. A toast to his memory and my condolences to his family friends and fans.

    ...only the founding father of Scandinavian Black Metal. Quorthon led the way for bands such as Venom, Mercyful Fate, and many more (...information I've taken from many articles I've read before and after Quorthon's death - I guess it's all a matter of opinion). And many of today's acts also recognize his contributions to black metal - Amon Amarth, Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth, Finntroll, Children of Bodom, et. al.

    But to be honest, I was only ever into his work from the latter years of Bathory - the Viking Metal Years.

    :devil: Great, atmospheric, epic viking metal.

    A huge loss for Metal indeed. RIP

    But Bathory didn't lead the way for Venom and Mercyful Fate, as they were around years before Bathory.

    Yes, I thought that Quorthon was actually influenced by Venom etc. But anyway, a terrible waste if it is true.

    He said in a past interview that he didn't know Venom when he started Bathory, his main influence was Motörhead at the time.


    Anyway, it is confirmed by the official website now :cry:
