* MoodWhiplash: "A Fine Day to Die" starts with about a minute and a half of haunting, ethereal folk music before suddenly transitioning with a MetalScream into the band's signature ravaging black metal.

* CreatorThumbprint: Nearly every one of Bathory's early albums contains an almost identical outro track. The outro makes a return on ''Nordland II'', perhaps as a CallBack to the early albums.

* EpicRocking: Bathory's Viking Metal output is pretty much the definition of this trope (especially ''Hammerheart'' and ''Twilight of the Gods'').

Although Music/{{Venom}}'s ''Black Metal'', released in 1982, was the first record to coin the term, it was Bathory's early albums, featuring Satanic lyrics, low-fi production and an inhuman vocal style, that defined the genre. Many fans have speculated Venom was an influence on Bathory; however, Quorthon has said in an interview with Kick Ass magazine in 1985 he only heard of Venom after the first, [[SelfTitledAlbum self-titled]] Bathory album was released. He also expressed dislike for many influential and popular heavy metal bands at the time, such as Music/IronMaiden and Music/JudasPriest. He has also stated the band's early work was influenced primarily by Music/BlackSabbath, Music/{{Motorhead}}, and punk rock.

Bathory's self-titled debut album, and the subsequent releases ''The Return'' and ''Under the Sign of the Black Mark'' are now regarded as major influences on the Norwegian bands which extended black metal's musical progression and popularity in the beginning of the 1990s.

The first signs of what was to follow appeared on what many fans consider to be Bathory's best album, ''Blood Fire Death'', on which some of the tracks the pace had slowed down to allow for a more epic songwriting approach, said to be an influence on, or initiation of, the extreme metal sub-genre viking metal. The Viking theme was also first introduced on this album. However, most of the musical elements of black metal were still present.
