YMMV: Bathory

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Paying with money out of his own pocket for the music video for "One Rode To Asa Bay", which to this day is still holds the record as the longest video to have ever aired on MTV.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Lots, but most Bathory fans will agree that "A Fine Day To Die" is among this.
    • Most fans will likely agree that the whole of Blood, Fire, Death falls under this.
    • The general rule is that the first six albums, Blood on Ice, and the two Nordland albums consist exclusively of this.
  • Evil Is Cool
  • Evil Is Sexy: The song "Woman of Dark Desires" makes Elizabeth Bathory out as this.
  • Fanon Discontinuity/Dork Age: No Bathory fan ever speaks of Octagon. Destroyer of Worlds isn't generally very well regarded either.
  • Franchise Zombie: Quorthon originally intended to end the band with Twilight of the Gods and focus on his solo career, but decided to keep on with the band.
  • Magnum Opus: Depends on fans, although many will say Blood, Fire, Death, The Return..., Under the Sign of the Black Mark, Hammerheart, and a couple others.
