01:46 - Fearmeister Agree, Blood Fire Death is the best of Bathory even if Under the Sign has a special place in my heart
01:39 - Apothecary Yup, much better than early Venom I think. Anyway, Blood Fire Death's always been my fav, perfect transition between the BM albums and the band's coming Viking era
01:36 - Lit. True, but even his debut was much more interesting.
01:33 - Apothecary You really can't call The Return and Under The SIgn "painfully average" though, because at the time they were released, BM was still in its infancy, so there wasn't much variation in sound among the bands
01:32 - Fearmeister Under the Sign was what got me into BM in the first place :|
01:31 - Lit. @Fear I'd still take that and even Requiem over the painfully average black metal that was The Return... and Under The Sign...
01:29 - LICH hey guys, black sabbath tomorrow. yiz
Long time no see Dark Fortress or at least new releases from the band. The black metallers' latest album Ylem came out in 2010 but the return is near. The German band has recently started recording their upcoming album. For now, we know that the plan is to release it in early 2014. Let the anticipation begin...
Some words from the band: "Dark Fortress have just started tracking drums for their (yet untitled) new album. The album is roughly scheduled for a release in early 2014. More news will follow soon..."
A first festival is already confirmed for 2014:
13.-16.06.2014 (GER) Weismain - Legacy Open Air (Waldstadion)
