The Swedish black metal band Bathory have won a lot of respect over the years for their uncompromising style of music. However, a little bit of compromise would have gone a long way on this particular release. Even seasoned metal fans might find Octagon tough to digest. Sure, its harsh sound and extreme lyrics pack plenty of shock value. But most of the tunes are too chaotic, failing to make any sort of a connection even after a good number of spins.
