Added DiffLines:

* NewSoundAlbum: Quite a few:
** ''Across the Open Sea'' introduced their signature Norse-themed lyrics and was their first and only album to feature the Swedish "buzzsaw" guitar tone, as they tended to stay away from it to distance themselves from their peers.
** ''Victory'' featured slightly simplified songwriting and Johnny's vocals became much clearer.
** ''Warrior'' was more-or-less an attempt at death 'n' roll, a sound which carried over to their comeback album ''Hell's Unleashed'' (though not quite to the same extent) and was never revisited again.
** ''Sworn Allegiance'' was a return to their classic sound from the first two albums mixed in with more groove and modern elements, which carried over to ''Midvinterblot'' and ''Hammer Battalion''.
** ''As Yggdrasil Trembles'' experimented with blackened death and melodeath to create a more atmospheric sound, which stuck for their two latest albums as well.

They also recorded a cover of another Venom song, "Black Metal", but changed the lyrics to "Death Metal". It was intended to be featured on their comeback album ''Hell's Unleashed'' in 2002, but it was only released on a promo disc, as they were not given permission to include it on the record.
* DeathMetal: One of the trope codifiers for the Swedish variety, along with Music/{{Entombed}}, Music/{{Dismember}}, Carnage, and Grave.



** Subverted, as the inclusion of the word "formaldehyde" in the chorus implies that the girl is most likely dead.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Vocalist Johnny Hedlund was going to be involved with [[Music/FooFighters Dave Grohl]]'s metal side project Probot, but problems with the media involving Hedlund's accusation of Nazism meant it wasn't going to happen.
