    Post Quorthon dead?!

    I heard that Quorthon from Bathory died recently of heart failure. He was 39. I wonder if this is true or some bizarre rumour.
    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.

    Legendary video director and founding BATHORY member Jonas Åkerlund has spoken to Sweden's Expressen newspaper about the passing of BATHORY mastermind Thomas "Quorthon" Forsberg from what is believed to be heart failure. Forsberg, who was known to have been battling heart problems for years, was found dead in his apartment in Stockholm, Sweden on Monday (June 7). He was 39 years old.

    "It's so sad. He had much more to offer," Åkerlund said.

    Jonas, who formed the band with Forsberg in the early '80s, went on to have a successful video-directing career, having worked with the likes of METALLICA, PRODIGY, MADONNA and U2.

    "[BATHORY came onto the scene] extremely early," Åkerlund said. "People like Marilyn Manson, Billy Corgan and the members of METALLICA have all come up to me and have told me that they listened to BATHORY."

    According to Åkerlund, it was Thomas Forsberg's creativity that made the band such an influence on so many younger metal acts.

    "[Quorthon] had a high cult status," Jonas said. "He wasn't interested in attention, he just wanted to play his music."

    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    Damnit! this is a tragedy!!
    -Plays Bathory's blood fire death album in tribute-
    Just close your eyes...can you remember
    The generations not so long ago
    I feel the shameless urge that we must restore
    Our former king to his rightful throne
    And with me lords and maidens
    We wait for the chosen son's return

    I come alive
    It's a time for celebration
    Our will to restore
    Make our past become the futre once more

    Still he lives! 2000 years have passed
    And still we're yearning for his return
    We fulfill a wishful prohecy
    And so the chanting begins
    Hail Caesar...Hail Caesar...we render unto you
    What is still yours

    Too sad he has passed away,
    "He who dies young is dear to the Gods" as Menandrus said long time ago...
    Not only he inspired so many bands but he was also the first (as far as i know) to be totally into the Viking concept, "Hammerheart" is a masterpiece!

    i'll play "One rode to Asa bay" in his memory...

    "E tutti si scandalizzano quando sentono dire: quel tale tipo di mammifero o di uccello ormai è sparito dalla faccia della terra, non lo vedremo più; è una grave perdita. Certo, si tratta di gravissime perdite.
    Ma non sarebbe forse più grave se sparisse una comunità umana?? --Bruno Salvadori

    Seven pictures of northern European males and seven pictures of northern African males were presented randomly via a computer screen to 82 Italian female undergraduates of the University of Padua, Italy.
    Each picture depicted a full frontal face with a neutral facial expression. Participants were asked to classify each picture as either northern Italian or southern Italian.
    On average, the seven pictures depicting northern Europeans were classified as northern Italians 81% of the time. The seven pictures depicting northern Africans were classified as southern Italians 83%
    of the time.

    Sad news

    Hammerheart

    Now that the wind called my name
    And my star had faded now hardly a glimpse up in the empty space
    And the wise one-eyed great father in the sky stilled my flame

    For the ones who stood me near
    And you few who were me dear
    I ask of thee to have no doubts and no fears

    For when the great cloud fills the air
    And the thunder roars from o, so far away up in the sky
    Then for sure you will know that I have reached the joyous hall up high

    With my bloodbrothers at side
    All sons of father with one eye
    We all were born in the land of the blood on ice

    And now you all who might hear my song
    Brought to you by the northern wind have no fear
    Though the night may seem so everlasting and forever dark

    There will come a golden dawn
    At ends of nights for all yee on whom
    Upon the northstar always shines

    The vast gates to hall up high
    Shall stand open wide and welcome you with all its within
    And Oden shall hail us bearers of a pounding hammerheart

    The Ravens

    Steadily on jagged wings
    Feathers black against the burning sky
    Spread your wings and ride the wind
    Gaze down on me with blackest eyes.

    Fly my ravens, fly ahead.
    Over the mountains and endless sky
    Fly my ravens, fly ahead
    Over the mountains over my head.
    Let the wind carry you up high.

    Fly my ravens, it's time to fly,
    And for me maybe to die.
