I remember reading somewhere that Quorthon kind of regretted that album, saying he was often drunk during sessions and fired a band member or two. In spite of the mess and unevenness of it I think there are some flashes of brilliance on it. The Rites of Darkness is definitely a standout track, quite forward looking, and he definitely had the album sounding like they were playing down in hell, the way it sounds really like it's coming from beneath the floor..... A lot of the tunes come over like really dirty heavy punk rock..... I like that about it. Overall imo Bathorys first four albums we're pretty consistently good. A definite classic.
