Bathory Jubileum Vol. 1 on Limited Edition 2LP
Black Mark is reissuing a selection of the classic catalog from Swedish black metal legends Bathory on limited edition picture disc vinyl. Titles include: Bathory (1984), Hammerheart (1990), Requiem (1994), Octagon (1995), Blood On Ice (1996), Destroyer Of Worlds (2001), Nordland I (2002) and Nordland II (2003). Compilation album Jubileum Vol. I (1992) will also be issued on double vinyl.
Celebrating 10 years, Bathory decided to put out a release containing their most loved material. And what better way to get the ideal track list together than to ask the fans themselves. Word got around and in due time a list of the tracks the fans felt should represent the first 10 years of the band would be compiled. The problem was the mixture of styles, how to best nail the running order, and what about the length of some of the tracks chosen.
In order to keep within the brim of time limitations, several tracks - it seemed - would have to be left out due to the fact that many songs most wanted by the fans were close to ten minutes long. The solution was the two compilation albums, Jubileum Vol. I and Jubilieum Vol. II, which featured previously unreleased material such as "Rider at the Gate of Dawn" and "Crawl to Your Cross," cuts from Bathory’s pre-album days like "You Don’t Move Me,” and hard-to-get-stuff like the original version of "Sacrifice." A true testament!
