Cuz we hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down All Nightmare Long
The black mountains of Hades, glowing red with distant fire…a beautiful woman in the throes of orgasm, glistening with sweat…trapped in a coffin, cut off from air and light, slowly dying…horse-mounted warriors riding on a hill shrouded in mist…a viking ship set aflame, the fallen warrior destined for Valhalla…giants waging war with the gods…orgies and secret sorcery rites…columns of black steam from factories, acid rain and death…a lone warrior riding atop a white steed into forests of shadows…the fury of a thousand suns born in one moment…the crisp, cool air against your breath as you ride through the mighty pine woods…the snow-clad shores of Vinland…
That’s just the kind of stuff you get from a Bathory album! From the first one to Nordland II, it’s just so fucking beautiful. I, like Quorthon, love painting images with words, and his lyrics create these beautiful, epic (and disturbing) images in my head. If I had the artistic skill, I’d paint images based on the lyrics of Bathory songs. But, I’m only good as a musician, so please, people, are there any blogs out there, either here or on deviant.art, that make really good art inspired by Bathory?
