my favourite line is "after 18 years of... inaccurate reporting". Glad the West hasnt broken that tradition.

For someone who clearly knows fuck all about the genre, the writer doesn't actually do that bad a job. What were they supposed to do, find a journalist specialising in black metal? Do they exist? Are they on more than 75 cents a decade? I doubt it.

They claimed Satanism at the time. They were kids. When they grew up they started claiming Paganism, Odinism, etc. They were just a bunch of confused teenagers looking for excuses to be little cunts.

It's hard to look past the hilarious photo by-line though, I will admit.

My daily black metal schedule consists of waking up, brushing my teeth, having a shower, burning churches, eating Muslims for breakfast, going to uni, eating Jews for lunch, going to work in a bar, eating Christians for dinner, then going home and writing about how I grim I am before going to bed and considering whether to eat Buddhists for supper or not. I don't want to get fat.

Yeah, I highly doubt anyone in the Entertainment section at the West is an avid black metal fan. Which is a shame, metal should receive equal coverage to crappy pop music.

I know Shannon, he is definitely NOT a metal-head, but used to be the film critic for that other WA paper, which is probably why they gave him that story to write.

Still, a quick google search would have come up with the correct facts :err:

Black metal is now less known for its music than its legacy of cults, murders, suicides and arson attacks.....

The critics agree the music is pretty awful.......


What a crock of shit.

What a biased shitty write up.

I'd like to see an article on how some of todays 'rap artists' are contributing to society.

If i had no clue as to what the whole black metal thing was about, after reading that story i would say those dudes sound just like Neo Nazi's with a slight identity crisis.

Not that im a big BM fan but, who might these so called critics be?
Let me guess, music enthusiasts, from say, classical to soft rock?

How can you be a critic of metal unless you have years of listening under your belt, you would have to a least like it to be able to compare it to shit you think dont.

only thing Ol' count whatsit will be counting though, im guessing is the days till he gets out.

i really think they missed the intimidation boat with the coprse paint to be honest. its just not scary.
Wearing your pants around your ass crack, thats scary. :P

If the dude in the picture was serious about looking scary, he should do something about that soft looking body of his, including the very soon to be KFC gut.
He looks too Pantene and metro.

i guess i should add: im talking about the link above^

I thought that was a pretty decent article. Unbiased look at the scene from the outside world and identifying it's anarchic and rebellious nature.
