For those who care to read, BATHORY Mastermind QUORTHON Dead At 39

BATHORY mastermind Tomas "Quorthon" Forsberg was found dead in his apartment in Stockholm, Sweden on Monday, June 7. The 39-year-old son of Black Mark Records owner Börje Forsberg, widely considered to be one of black metal's founding fathers, died of an apparent heart failure.

For those interested Bathory is consider the one of the first bands from Scandinavia that opened the doors for other metal bands in the region.

Now, anyone interested in the 6th degrees of separation between Bathory and U2??
Jonas Akerlund the music video director of "Beautiful Day" used to be the drummer for Bathory for a period of time. Did anyone else know that??

Anyways, RIP in Valhalla Quorthon
This is a huge loss in the metal world
