BATHORY - IN MEMORY OF QUORTHON - CDs has been produced to honour QUORTHON as the great artist, songwriter, visionary composer and much loved man he was.
A unique work, exhaustively and respectfully assembled in remembrance of the legendary founder of Death Metal and Viking Metal.
For an entire year Boss collected and went through so much material that it took months until the project truly began to take shape. Boss used as much of QUORTHONs original material as possible - including his layouts, text and notes taken from the posted and unreleased material he left.
The ARTWORK - Painted by Kristian W?hlin who closely followed QUORTHONs concept for a new BATHORY album cover - even if the new album itself was barely outlined at the time. Kristian began working on the new cover in late spring 2004, only weeks before QUORTHON unexpectedly passed away.
The painting Kristian gave us meant so much to Boss that he decided to use it for the memorial shirts and, of course, as the box set?s cover art.
The CD 2 of 3 - Boss personally selected the songs for the three CDs, which feature four of the finest hours of BATHORY and the great QUORTHON. When choosing the tracks, Boss kept in mind QUORTHON?s favourites, so you can be sure it is a compilation first of QUORTHONs favourites, and of Boss - selected from a very strong and diverse catalogue.
In addition, you will hear BATHORY and QUORTHON recordings you probably didn?t even know existed. All music was remastered especially for the box set.
