Definition funny of Bathory:
Along with Venom, Bathory are the highly respected pioneers of Black Metal. Bathory's name is the last name of the evil woman Elizabeth Bathory who lived sometime around the 1500s-1600s. some even go as far as calling her a vampire because of her vampiric crimes. About Black Metal: Bathory's "Quorthon" took metal to a new level when he added high-pitched demon-like vocals screaming out lyrics focusing on evey aspect of evil to aggressive thrash. The genre then evolved into a more symphonic sound with lots and i mean LOTS of tremelo picking and blastbeats. Quorthon, who died in 2004 from a heart related problem, also pioneered yet another great genre, Viking Metal, with albums like "Hammerheart" and "Twilight of the Gods" and the latest "Nordland" series. Viking Metal is characterized by mixing heavy metal, lots of choirs in the back chanting to the main riff of the song, and sometimes a bit of a folk influence straight out of the streets of Northern European countries such as Finland or Iceland. (Therefore you will probably hear alot of flutes and maybe even some bag-pipes!) But what mainly characterizes it are the lyrics about Norse Mythology and Asatru beliefs.
A taste of Bathory's Black Metal Style: I close your eyes and send you into vainly dreams I reign your soul the night engulf your painful screams I watch you cry and twist your soul in agony No prayers can save you now from hell in eternity I devastate your soul and lacerate your mind In sin I sanctify my sword to crush your spine A taste of Bathory's Viking Metal style: God of Thunder Who crack the sky Swing your Hammer Way up high In chariot of gold Ride across the clouds The black storm is unfold Burning mist is but a shroud Seeds and honey Milk and blood A Sacrifice To Thunder God Laid in ship of Oak On final sail to fate Steel is at side Drifting to the open Gates of Valhalla Shields of gold Valhalla Great warriors hall Pretty significant change eh? R.I.P. Quorthon (By the way I can't tell if he went to the firey firey place, or if he went to Valhalla.) ;)
From "bátor", meaning "valiant". A long-gone but once powerful family of Hungary. The height of the Báthory clan was in the 1500s and 1600s. Thought to be closely inbred, as most royalty and nobility in those days, brighter family members like King Stephan Báthory of Poland were eclipsed by more brutal members. Devil worshippers, perverts, sadists, witches, and mentally unstable characters. Countess Klara Báthory, aunt of Elizabeth Báthory, was bisexual and sadistic towards her female servants. An uncle of Elizabeth was a schizophrenic Devil worshipper. Countess Elizabeth (Erzébet) Báthory (1560-1614) was the worst of the Báthory clan. Raven-haired, pale-skinned, voluptuous, she was concidered a beauty... but she bore the personality of a pit bull. Mentally ill, promiscuous, vain, narcissistic and highly sadistic, Elizabeth was the inspiration behind Count Dracula. Vlad Dracul, a distant relative to her and inspiration for the Count, bears less resemblance to Dracula than Elizabeth, who was concidered a vampire in her own time. Elizabeth enjoyed torturing servants, especially if they were young women and attractive. As she grew older, she feared losing her youth and her so-called "beauty"... according to folklore a servant girl accidently pulled her hair while styling it and Elizabeth struck the girl across the face so hard that she drew blood, which got onto her hands. When she'd washed the blood off, in her twisted mind, she thought that her skin had regained its freshness and youthful suppleness where the blood had splashed. And the rest is history. Scores of peasant girls, and later, noble girls of lower rank than the countess, were mercilessly tortured, ranging from weeks to months, and killed in the most painful and frightening ways. Elizabeth never missed out on the torure and death of her victims, delighting in soaking up their blood. Killing girls of nobility began her downfall. She was never charged, sadly, and was walled up inside her small room in 1611, where she died in 1614. Sufficient punishment? I think not. Her accomplices, however, were punished as badly as the maidens that they tortured.
Somewhere between 50 and 650 young ladies were brutally tortured and killed to satisfy the mad countess's unsatiable thirst for blood. Sadly, they are forgotten. "...a twelve year old girl named Pola somehow managed to escape from the castle. But Dorottya Szentes, aided by Helena Jó, caught the frightened girl by surprise and brought her forcibly back to Csejthe Castle. Clad only in a long white robe, Countess Erzsébet greeted the girl upon her return. The countess was in another of her rages. She advanced on the twelve-year-old child and forced her into a kind of cage. This particular cage was built like a huge ball, too narrow to sit in, too low to stand in. Once the girl was inside, the cage was suddenly hauled up by a pulley, and dozens of short spikes jutted into the cage. Pola tried to avoid being caught on the spikes, but Thorko maneuvered the ropes so that the cage shifted from side to side. Pola's flesh was torn to pieces..." Grim!
Credited as being one of the first Black Metal bands, Bathory was formed by Quorthon. Early albums include "Under The Sign of the Black Mark," "Requiem," "Hammerheart," and others. Bathory owns you. Early in 2004, Quorthon died from heart failure.
Bathory is better than your family.
One of the first black metal bands. A one man outfit with Quorthon who died at the age of 38 last year of a heart problem. Erzebet Bathory was a 16th century Hungarian countess who killed between 20 and 600 peasant girls and virgins in her land and bathed in their blood to look more beautiful.
