It's done! The Northland saga is complete! Already with "Nordland I", Quorthon impressively returned to the sound of the Bathory-classics, "Hammerheart", "Twilight of the gods" and not to forget "Blood on ice". "Nordland II" now features a full 60 minutes of unmistakable Bathory trademarks, like powerful choir vocals, mighty drums and walls of guitars (up to 8 at the same time!), it's all here. Quorthon's vocals will remain a matter of taste, but they, too add to the unique flair of "Nordland II". In titles, like the opener, "Blooded shore", "Sea wolf", "Vinland", the melodic "The land" and the song "Death and resurrection of a northern son" provided with an addictive chorus, Bathory are at their best and in terms of song writing even manage to outlive the predecessor. In terms of production, this band has never been better, I wouldn't know how this could be better. The epic atmosphere and the created tension can even compete with "Blood on ice", and could there be a bigger compliment for Quorthon latest Viking Metal masterpiece? (Michael Rother - 04/03)
