Bathory 'In Memory Of Quorthon' Shirts Available, Box Set On The Way

Börje "Boss" Forsberg, owner of Black Mark Records and father of late BATHORY mainman Thomas "Quorthon" Forsberg, has issued the following statement regarding plans for new BATHORY merchandise and album releases:

"Dearest BATHORY friends, I would like to thank all of you for your supports all the time. All your condolences signed by thousands of letters, e-mails or in any other forms made all of us feel strong. It has been impossible for me to thank all of you the personally way, though I wish I could.

"Many of you asked new material from BATHORY. The 'Bathory - In Memory Of Quorthon' shirt comes to be released first. The shirt shall mind the memory of Quorthon. Kristian Wåhlin, who painted for 'Blood On Ice' and 'Nordland', did paint the motif after the instructions Quorthon left to him few weeks before he died. This artwork was meant to cover the next upcoming BATHORY album.

"I temporary since months work with the 'Bathory – In Memory Of Quorthon' box. It comes to be Quorthon's and BATHORY's completed musical history. Not much informations to be announced right now. It is a very big production, it takes up a great deal of my time to join the musical part with the historical part. The discography alone allready covers 64 pages. Throughout working with all the stuff, I feel Quorthon's on my very side. I’m that sure you all will appreciate the release of the Box I did in memory of Quorthon. More information: to be announced."

The "Bathory - In Memory of Quorthon" t-shirts are available in the "Shop" area of www.blackmark.net.

Quorthon was found dead in his apartment in Stockholm, Sweden on June 7, 2004. The 39-year-old, widely considered to be one of black metal's founding fathers, reportedly died of heart failure.

All you f***ing idiots out there with your Cradle Of Filth and Dimmu Borgir shirts shouting 'Hail Satan' and 'Black Metal rules' shut the f*** up, buy a Bathory album and learn what true black metal is all about.
