Description: One of the pioneers of the first wave of black metal music (as well as viking metal). Vvornth and Kothaar were names used by various members, filling in the role and taking the assigned name. Quorthon died of a heart attack on June 3, 2004 in his appartment in Hässelby, Stockholm.

The band ended with the death of frontman Quorthon in 2004."
