The Evil Dead (1981)
1985. The Return
is the second album by band Bathory.
Quorthon is back with an another great release and big influence for the worldwide black metal scene. In the same year another group came into the scene like a tornado: Possessed, Celtic Frost, There were a lot of differences between these two groups but, in their way, they contribute in changing something in metal.
Bathory had just created the masterpiece of black metal and one of the most influentual albums of all time.
Quorthon explained the album title as such:
We wanted people to just read out The Return…… – as in a second album or a follow-up – and then flip the album over to look for a tracking list. Not finding one, what they got was this apocalyptic poem with the song titles woven into it. Only after listening through the album to the end would you get the full title of the album; “The Return of the Darkness and Evil”
