|This is the album i was waiting for from Bathory..it is my absolute favourite from Quothorn. Hammerheart lead up to it, but they have since never topped it.Symphonic Viking Metal at its best!

|Once apone a time this group sang "Satanic" themes and possessed a Venom-esque sound, but not no more... Their singer "Quorthon" clearly went through a very personal odyssey some years ago. He began to re-discover the pagen heritage of his ancestral homeland, and it must have been a fairly shattering revelation as BATHORY has never been the same since.Together with the previous 2 releases "Hammerheart" and "Blood Fire Death, Twilight Of The Gods" fills the last spot of an incredible trilogy.

|BATHORY'S sound is more akin to 19th Century romantic opera than any modern style. While the Wagnerian choruses of the last LP "Hammerheart", have here been transformed into hymn-like primeval chants. BATHORY'S adaptation of a 1914 classical piece by Gustav Holst, now coupled with stirring Odinist lyrics, the result, a "Heathen Anthem" for the northen European people of the 1990's. Anyone of this heritage who has shed the shackles of Christianity could hardly resist the power of this album!
