Rare video footage from the DVD that accompanied BATHORY‘s career-spanning box set, “In Memory of Quorthon”, can be viewed below in three parts.

Released in June 2006 via Black Mark, “In Memory of Quorthon” contains three CDs, one DVD, a book and a poster. Börje “Boss” Forsberg — owner of Black Mark Records and father of late BATHORY mainman Thomas “Quorthon” Forsberg — had previously stated that the package would contain “Quorthon‘s and BATHORY‘s complete musical history.”

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.
