Bathory – In Conspiracy With Satan (Black Mark) 1984. Erich, the owner of Good Music For Bad Bad Times, attracts controversy. Heated debates break out all the time on his site, which of course, makes for entertaining reading. Recently, he and the owner of Punk Vault got into an argument over bloggers vs musicians rights. I had to side ethically with MXV although I really wanted to side with Erich, because Vaulty came off as a completely, condescending dick.
Another funny point of controversy on Erich’s site was the age-old punk vs metal argument. Geez, I hadn’t heard that one in years. Me? I prefer grunt-rock.
So in honor of Erich, who seriously likes the metal….I am posting three tracks from my favorite metal LP of all time. The first Bathory LP. I am by no means a metal afficionado but this LP is a work of pure genius. It is still in print so buy it now.
