Recorded in April, 1991, at Montezuma Studio, Stockholm, Sweden.

The album was also released as a picture disc.
Re-released on red vinyl in 2003 by Black Mark.

Originally intended to be the final Bathory album.

The tracklisting on the 2003 pressing is:
1. Prologue - Twilight of the Gods - Epilogue / Through Blood by Thunder / Blood and Iron (30:45)
2. Under the Runes (5:58)
3. To Enter Your Mountain (7:36)
4. Bond of Blood (7:36)
5. Hammerheart (4:42)
6. (untitled outro) (0:23)

The melody of "Hammerheart" is adapted from the fourth movement of "Jupiter" from The Planets suite by English classical composer Gustav Holst (1874-1934).

A slightly shorter version (9:21) of the track "Blood and Iron" is featured on the '92 Touch of Evil compilation from Black Mark Productions.

홀스트의 목성 커버가 인상적

podarené album. Folk a epický metal, ktorý určite ovplyvnil veľa aj súčasných kapiel
level   (85/100)
음산한 기타솔로가 이 앨범의 매력이라고 생각한다.한곡씩 들으면 몰라도 그 곡이 그곡 같아서 앨범전곡 들으면 지루하다는 단점이 아쉽다.1번곡 추천

전작에 비해 진화된(?) 바쏘리의 바이킹메탈. 웅장한 맛이 일품!
