Bathory Tribute

All-Star Bathory Tribute Set Booked For 2024 ‘Beyond The Gates’ Festival


The music of influential Swedish black metallers Bathory will be celebrated onstage with a special tribute set at next year’s ‘Beyond The Gates‘ festival. That event will be held across several venues in Bergen, Norway from July 31st to August 03rd. That special performance will take place in addition to sets from Behemoth, Satyricon, Watain, Venom and more.

Dubbed ‘Blood Fire Death: A Tribute To Quorthon And The Music Of Bathory‘, the tribute set will be staged by current and former members of:

  • Bathory
  • Aura Noir
  • Darvaza
  • Emperor
  • Enslaved
  • Gorgoroth
  • Mayhem
  • Primordial
  • Satyricon
  • Watain
  • Whoredom Rife

The festival’s organizers commented:

“2024 marks 20 years since the passing of Thomas ‘Quorthon’ Forsberg. Quorthon is widely regarded as one of the most influential musicians and composers in the world of extreme metal. It’s safe to say that Black Metal as we know it today would never have been the same without the music of Bathory. The trademark riffing, the production and all over aesthetic is omnipresent in all the bands that has later made their mark on the genre.”
