Bathory Under The Sign Of The Black Mark on Picture Disc LP
Black Mark is reissuing a selection of the classic catalog from Swedish black metal legends Bathory on picture disc vinyl. Titles in the second round of releases include: The Return... (1985), Under the Sign of the Black Mark (1987), Blood Fire Death (1988) and Twilight of the Gods (1991). Compilation albums Jubileum Vol. II (1993) and Jubileum Vol. III (1998) will also be issued on double vinyl as well as the 6LP box set In Memory of Quorthon (2006).
Bathory's third album is also a fan favorite and it marked progressive and exciting changes in both style and direction. The band, back in their legendary 12-track Heavenshore studio, expanded it’s original lethal form of metal with acoustic guitars, harmony vocals and sound effects - elements that would personify Bathory’s sound of the 80’s and be much revived by the new wave of black metal of the 90’s - a decade after this death metal classic first saw the light of day.
