Quorthon - _When Our Day Is Through_
(Black Mark, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
I must applause Bathory frontman Quorthon for continuing onward in his quest to create other forms of music other than the brutal carnage he brought forth with the numerous Bathory releases. The follow-up to 1995's _Album_ is the 4-song collection called _When Our Day Is Through_, an assortment of material far from the savagery of Bathory rather closely similar to Smashing Pumpkins and any other mainstream alt/rock act. The material has it all: Top 40 sounds, bittersweet melodies and memorable hooks. This ain't bad, kind of cheesy at times, but the main thing to keep in mind is that Quorthon is dead serious about what he is doing outside of Bathory and within his musical endeavors. Case in point: this is the 'warm-up' to the twenty-three song, double-cd collection of alternative ditties called _Purity of Essence_ that Quorthon will be unleashing sometime in May. You've been warned.
