With their sixth full-length, Twilight Of The Gods, Bathory managed to pile drive the derivative power metal of the 80’s into a reflective and philosophical Nietzsche style, without ever getting pretentious. Their most introverted and led-footed album, it's bombast and operatic style was labeled Richard Wagner-metal and it stands as another important release in the vast catalog of one of metal's true originals.
