Turning his attention to Thrash in the mid 90’s, Quorthon proved equally adept at Thrash as he did Black Metal and Viking Metal.

Considering he influenced the majority of Thrash bands that went on to find fame and fortune it seemed apt that when he wanted to, Quorthon thrashed harder and faster than most!

Recalling the clamour and clatter of Celtic Frost, Kreator and early Slayer, Bathory’s Thrash albums Requiem and Octagon were dirty, raw and totally at odds with the Technical Thrash prevalent of the time; almost as if Quorthon had tired of the overly sanitised nature of Metallica, Megadeth et al in the mid 90’s and looked to take the genre back to its roots.

About Chris Jennings (1986 Articles)
I love metal. Always have. Always will. As editor of Worship Metal - a site dedicated to being as positive about metal and its myriad of sub-genres as possible - my aim is to 'worship' metal through honest reviews, current news and a wide variety of features; offering the same exposure to underground bands as we do to mainstream/well known acts. Our mantra; the bands are partners and we exist to serve the bands \m/
