Vikernes, or Count Grishnackh as he is known to his bros, has served 16 years of a 21 year sentence for the murder of Mayhem‘s Øystein Aarseth and for the arson of three Norwegian churches. Needless to say, bitch ain’t the Ja Rule of black metal.
Now, I’ll admit that Hvis lyset tar oss and Filosofem are two of my favorite metal albums, but I don’t know how comfortable I would feel if this fascist slayer were to be added to the summer festival circuit. Though maybe VH1 should consider a “Rock of Love”-type reality show for the dude (he’s already married, but does that matter to a pagan?). What about “Slice of Love”?
