Murder, Mayhem & Arson

Below is a documentary entitled 'Once Upon A Time in Norway' which details the rise of the black metal scene in that particularly dark & dank corner of Scandinavia. What's fascinating about this docu is you get to hear the major players from the scene (the infamous 'Inner Circle') recall the events leading up to the church burnings, suicide of Mayhem lead singer & ultimately, the brutal murder of Euronymous by Vaarg Vikness, with candour & the benefit of hindsight & maturity.

Me knows this is a seven parter & almost an hour long but fer fans of extreme music, this documentary is fooking compulsory viewing.

Enjoy yer weekend!

Tinesh said...

yay!!!! watched this a long time ago :D:D

police in malaysia should watch this and learn the diff between black metal and heavy metal music and not stop people who listen to heavy metal in the car. pantat.

anfield devotee said...

tinesh: Pls la dude, it just an excuse fer the cops to harrass you & cari makan la. If it ain't metal, its something else.

That's the price we have to pay to live in BEAUTIFUL & PEACEFUL Malaysia - our civil liberties.
