True Crimes of Norwegian Black Metal
Norway is known for amazing architecture, culture, tourism…and Black Metal. Black Metal in a general sense is a music genre as a sub-category of metal. I have been familiar with Mayhem and the Black Metal scene pre-internet from just being involved with the punk/hardcore/metal scene, and of now course with and endless amount of information that the world wide web offers, it creates a more robust story. Black Metal overall been aligned with and associated with Satanism, and even Satanism has several schools of thought within that circle.
Norwegian Black Metal is arguably the most notorious. Murders, church burnings, and other crimes ran rampant from the mid/late 1980’s into the early 1990’s. The bands Mayhem and Burzum are two of the most iconic Black Metal bands, and they are notorious for having a volatile history. The semi-fictional Jonas Akerlund film Lords of Chaos illustrates what was happening at that time with the band Mayhem.
