Quorthon (1994-2004) is a Heavy Metal band from Sweden.


uorthon, the infamous man behind Bathory, decided after the release of six Bathory albums, that he would like to try something different, showing a total different side.

On Album (1994) he was influenced by traditional heavy metal bands like Black Sabbath and Mountain; punk influences were recognizable. The debut album was recorded in a low class studio in two weeks, using only a guitar, a bass and a drum machine.

On Purity Of Essence (1997) Quorton decided to experiment, showing his more rocking side. His inspirations were bands like Sex Pistols and The Beatles. But he was also still a prominent member of Bathory. Quorthon's musical activities were ended in 2004 by his death (although it is commonly accepted that this side-project ended in 1997).
