This album represents the culmination of Bathory's early period before Quorthon began to move away from satanic black metal to the nordic style. The pounding riffs and grunted vocals of "Bathory" and "The Return of the Darkness and Evil" are refined and blended with eerie atmospheric effects (the fingernails scraping a coffin lid on the intro of "Call From the Grave" being a prime example). If you love extreme thrash metal then do yourself a favour and get this. My only complaint is about the occasional lapses in the re mastering of the CD version, but the original wasn't exactly a "hi fi extravaganza"!

This is one of the best black metal albums ever recorded, and the original monster that gave birth to a whole spawn of European metal bands. The production is claustrophobic and merciless, complete with real chainsaw guitars, high-pitched growls and jackhammer drums. The album was released in 1987 and it was the heaviest metal ever heard. From the total speed attack of the opener "Massacre" to the ultra-classic "Woman of dark desires", this is an absolute must-buy for extreme metal fans.

This is evil, most of those that followed are just as much of a masquerade as toddlers on Halloween. Recorded on the eve of May Day,Walpurgis Night, a Cloven Hoofed beast pressed play on a tape player possessed by the spirit of Vlad Þepeº, whilst Quorthon grizzled and gnarled his way through an unholy onslaught of riffs. Duc de Richleau and Rex can't save you now, they're stuck in traffic and didn't take the tube because they harbour xenophobic sentiments, your Satanic baptism is about to occur and the soundtrack is `Under the Sign of the Black Mark' and Satan records the first note!

Rather than conjuring the cold and wintry images that most black metal does, `Under the Sign of the Black Mark' has the listener feeling immensely hot, sweat breaking on their brow, as if they had consumed all of The Star of India's famously colon emptying Vindaloo. And like some beaten wife, you come back for more and more of this same hellish punishment under the same premise that;
"He loves me! He didn't mean to hurt me! Oh officer please!". Oh but on the contrary, `Under the Sign of the Black Mark' wishes to imprison your soul, not in the abode of mist but behind the Gates of Gehenna. Now, Quorthon didn't wish to this upon his listeners, indeed, he was much more content with spawning legions of "I AM ZE VIKING!" bands. So like some Devil sick of sin, he abandoned the left hand path. But if anything, this merely heightens the sense of unbridled evil of `Under the Sign of the Black Mark', as it acts as the final word in evil from one of Satan's merriest of men. Others succeeded in capturing some of the feeling of evil after `Under the Sign of the Black Mark', but they, fearing some sort of damnation or perhaps in search of wafers, still attended church on Sunday.
