Bathory was essentially a one-man band, fronted by Quorthon and filled out with an endless string of session players who usually only lasted one album.

Based in Sweden, Bathory is widely regarded as a pioneer of the modern black metal sound, and everybody who is anybody in black metal likes to quote Bathory as a big influence.

Bathory ended with Quorthon's unexpected death on 7 June 2004.
