The thing I love most about black metal from Norway is that someone took the time to write about the band's suppression of lyrics and tabs on the web as well as the use of 64 references on Wikipedia. That, everyone, is true metal.

That is snark, but not about the post and I'm very thankful for the links, puke & cry. Jesus, I hope I don't see anyone with stupid face paint at my door tonight. *Checks windows*

Gaahl: "He spent his youth living in a small village, which his family has owned for centuries." I guess I can see how that could lead a young man to feel entitled to assault and torture people........

Lords of Chaos is a must-read, even if you're not into the music itself.

Lords of Chaos' last chapter is crap.

longsleeves: Don't judge a man until you've walked a mile in his codpiece.

In July 2008, Gaahl revealed in an online interview that he was involved in the creation of an upcoming fashion collection for women, together with Norwegian modeling agent Dan DeVero and designer Sonja Wu.

Yeah, what was that? How does he manage to sit like that without blinking for what, two minutes? And does he have to practice?

OK P&C I now understand that he believes in a higher god than the one who says you are not supposed to torture people.

What sycophantic thralls those "journalists" are!

that producer was a real weenie. Black metal is supposedly the sound of the life of the mountains, so the hiking is part of it. especially hiking to see the house of someone's ancestors. very cool, he was lucky to be invited.

And he messes it up by whining about his designer shoes. why didn't they just cut that part out?

From the 1992 lineup:

Goat Pervertor - drums

So much for Tolkien characters.

Great link, btw. I never got the sense for one minute that Gaahl wanted to whip out the PlayStation and goof off with his guests. The dude is scary. The end of video 5 should solidify that.

Isn't this kind of a dupe?
