So earlier this month I went to Bergen, Norway. Since I was there already, I contacted God Seed's management to see if I could meet and interview Gaahl.
Even though Gaahl was going to travel the next morning to play in the UK, he was cool enough to meet with me that night at a bar. You can read our pretty drat long exchange here: http://www.metalblast.net/2013/11/unleashing-satan-an-evening-with-gaahl/

Gaahl was extremely nice; after the interview he invited me to join him, his boyfriend and his boyfriend's sister for drinks and we just shot the poo poo for a few hours. A truly surreal experience.

I hope you guys like it!

That was awesome! Thanks :D

Anyone got any kvlt black metal tape recs for me? Picked up a walkman off eBay because I felt like I was missing out on stuff from Graceless and Exitium, but other recs are very welcome. Gutted that I seem to have missed the Malefices tapes, as well as the Cosmic Church/CoO split.

Mayhem: Live in Leipzig. It's not good quality but it has the advantage of having Dead on vocals, Quite possibly my favorite black metal musician. If you like early Mayhem it's entertaining. I think it is available on cassette.

Edit: I looked online and it looks like it is available on cassette. Kinda pricey though: http://www.discogs.com/Mayhem-Live-In-Leipzig/release/3291012

Leipzig is my favorite Mayhem album (as you can tell by my various Ohlin inspired avatars). It really is the most punishing sound, and drat those vocals really do just kinda tear through as well as the instruments. It just kinda tears right through your soul. Very well made. Grand Declaration is my second favorite though...gotta love those spoken word monologues.

So, it now appears that Blake Judd has decided NOT to dissolve his band Nachtmystium - just to discontinue touring.

ďI have actually decided not to end the band. The time I announced that Nachtmystium was no more came after a series of really difficult issues and situations, and I decided it was time for a major change in my personal life. Nachtmystium has dominated just about every aspect of my life and has been extremely consuming of my time. With the touring band lifestyle being what it is, it caused me to get very involved with drugs. I am an addict and have struggled with substance abuse issues for years, but in the last four years or so, it got way out of control and began to ruin my life. I decided that after all the poo poo hit the fan, I needed to get out of the spotlight for a while, get myself some help, and start a new and more normal life. At the time, I really felt like Nachtmystium needed to end for that to happen. Now that I have had a good nine months to clean myself up as far as my drug problem goes, and have regrouped mentally and made a new life for myself, Iíve been able to really think about what Iím doing and where Iím going with music. Due to the immense amount of feedback I have received from fans on our Facebook page telling me how sad they were that I was bringing the band to an end, I decided that ending the band was not what needed to happen in order to live a new life. I just reprioritized how the band is going to be present in my life, and I have also decided that I will no longer be touring at all. But just hanging up the name, all the momentum and success Iíve had with the band doesnít seem logical to me now that I have had time to do everything Iíve mentioned. I donít really care what people say or think about my decision to continue on with the band after announcing that it was coming to an end. Iím sure some people will talk poo poo, but that is nothing new for me or this band. Iím looking at The World We Left Behind as the end of a chapter in Nachtmystiumís history. What I do next will be something new, theme-wise and musically. Iím not sure what direction I will take, but itís definitely going to be something new and different.Ē

- Blake Judd interview with Metal Mayhem Underground

Good for him on sobering up, I'm exctited that they're back. I dig they're sound.

On an unrelated note, what do you guys all think of Vanhelga? The whole "we support and encourage self harm and all our art is just people cutting themselves" gimmick is a little silly but the actual sound I seriously dig. Their use of piano really fits in well with the rest of the background, makes it melodic and raw/grainy at the same time.

I dig Vanhelga; they remind me a fair bit of Lifelover, who I really like (do they share members?). Also self harm might be the least offensive thing a black metal band has claimed to endorse.

Vanhelga does have former members of Lifelover I believe. The other band I've been digging lately is Nocturnal Depression, maybe best known because one of their guitarists has a hand deformity. He also plays in Make A Change...Kill Yourself.

I recently picked up "When the Prozac No Longer Helps" by Niklas Kvarforth (of Shining). I have to say Shining is my favorite black metal band, and after reading the lyrics in english it makes me appreciate the music a lot more. Has anyone seen Shining live? How were they?

He's absolutely not sober, he's continuing to rip unsuspecting people off with bullshit sales and "pre-orders" of nonexistent LPs and shirts, and the reason that he's not touring is that he'd get his head caved in if he dared show his face in most major US cities.

Sometimes Kvarforth is dead drunk and the show is awful, with sloppy playing and no energy. Sometimes he's only quite drunk and angry as hell and they are amazing. It's always a bit of a crapshoot. The new members they have are very talented live, though, which helps.

When they're good, they're very very good; when they're bad they're awful.

That's kinda what I've taken from the videos. When Kvarforth is into it enough and sober he puts on one loving hell of a performance, but half the time he just seems too wasted. It's a shame because Shining is one of my favorite bands.

I would also probably pay decent money to see him go batshit crazy in a bathtub live.

I don't necessarily disagree with your post, but at least one of his tattoos (visible in the article's photo) is a Valknut. The Valknut isn't exclusively a white supremacist symbol, but it definitely gets a lot of play in those circles. So there's at least some ambiguity. It also doesn't help that the article title includes "what's up with those swastikas," which definitely sets the tone. But yes, Entranced by the Wolfshook seems pretty clearly to be an anti-Nazi song.

I am a white Asatru and I use the Valknut all the time, I am 100% against white supremacy and think it is a shame that such a symbol has been used by white supremacy groups.

I think Satanic Warmaster made an interesting point about their use of some Nazi imagery, they said something along the lines of "We are not Nazis but we will use a Swastika to get a rise out of people and to be controversial, because upside down crosses just don't do it anymore."

Personally I have no problem with that, I think it's strange that people will blow off Cannibal Corpses Necropedophile as just being "edgy" but everyone is up in arms over a Nazi Swastika. The way to take away NSBM bands power and influence is to not give a poo poo about them.
