Notes


Released on 8 October 1988.

Although mostly black metal, the album includes some of the first examples of Viking metal. According to the book "Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult" by Dayal Patterson, it began a second trilogy, an era Quorthon described as the "pre-Christian Swedish Viking Era"

"For All Those Who Died" lyrics were taken from a poem by Erica Jong, first published in her book "Witches" in 1981.

"A Fine Day to Die" the first three verses are taken from "Cassilda's Song" of Robert W. Chambers' The King in Yellow.

"Outro" is not listed on the cover, and is not included on the cassette release.

Cover artwork is taken from the painting The Wild Hunt of Odin (1872) by Peter Nicolai Arbo. The painting as well as the opening track "Oden's Ride Over Nordland" use the Wild Hunt motif from folklore.
Blood Fire Death established this motif in metal culture, where it since has become popular with a number of bands and event organizers.

In 2009, IGN included Blood Fire Death in their "10 Great Black Metal Albums" list.
