Released this past June via Black Mark Records, "In Memory of Quorthon" contains three CDs, one DVD, a book and a poster. Börje "Boss" Forsberg — owner of Black Mark Records and father of late Bathory mainman Thomas "Quorthon" Forsberg — had previously stated that the package would contain "Quorthon's and Bathory's complete musical history."
Quorthon was found dead in his apartment in Stockholm, Sweden on June 7, 2004. The 39-year-old, widely considered to be one of black metal's founding fathers, reportedly died of heart failure.
