One of the biggest influences of viking metal, 1990's Hammerheart marked a relative sea change for Bathory; gone are the hyper energetic growls and black metal staples, and in are backing choirs, dramatic instrumentation, and clean vocals from Quorthon. These vocals range from fitting to questionable, as they sometimes don't work for me; however, this is outdone by the musicality of all the tracks here; a simply great record.

This is the blueprint for a great viking metal album.

Hugely influential both for the development of my personal music taste and the black/folk/viking/pagan metal genres at large.

One of the ultimate examples of lyrical concept being perfectly embodied by the music. This is powerful stuff that requires your full attention.
