Notas editoriales de iTunes

The last album in Bathory's trilogy of Viking metal (and intended final release by the band when they put it out in 1991), Twilight of the Gods bears the hallmarks of the extreme-metal subgenre mastermind Quorthon almost single-handedly invented. Extended, epic songs, chorale backing, hypnotically repetitive guitars and thunderous volumes are the order of the day, which is presumably a good one to do battle on. The acoustic intro to "Blood and Iron" gives way to one of the band's heaviest riffs and "Under the Runes" is the sort of majestically crushing paean to berserkers only Quorthon (with a slightly less raspy voice throughout) could write. As much as it is in the style of Viking metal, Twilight of the Gods nevertheless features a stronger classical element than any of Bathory's previous records. The title of the album itself is taken from Wagner's Gotterdammerung and, aside from 23 seconds of creepiness called "The Winds of Mayhem," final song "Hammerheart" is based on Gustav Holst's "Jupiter." Quorthon, who died tragically of heart failure in 2004, played all the instruments on Twilight of the Gods.

Oh it gives me chills

This entire album, from the beautiful cover artwork to the chilling bagpipes is an absolute powerhouse. My favorite song is Hammerheart. I can't listen to it without getting goosebumps. May Quorthon rest with the gods he so praised!

A Good Album.

Excellent album. . . Bathory is interesting because depending on which album you're listening to, they sound completely different. This album is slower than their older ones by far. If you like this album, and want more, i'd check out the Hammerheart album. Their older stuff is a lot heavier such as Blood Fire Death which is Thrash Metal. Go back even farther to their debut album and its black metal. . . In my view, all of their albums are amazing and i can listen to all of it.

In a musical realm where scale of influence has little to do with commercial success, few originators of the extreme metal arts evoke as deep a sense of mystery, or incite such hushed, reverential tones of admiration, as Sweden's Bathory. Essentially a one-man operation helmed by the mysterious Quorthon, Bathory's development from the rawest form of embryonic black metal, to thrash, death, and back to its self-devised Viking-themed black metal, has mirrored and regularly defined the genre's very...
