I would be interested in the take by members of this forum on this list. Considering these acts, how do you feel about black metal as a whole, more importantly the people behind the music? These acts impact on metal as a whole, etc. If these acts were done by posers and kids trying to be tr00 or whatever it would be different but here we are talking about the pioneers and prominent figures of black metal.
Here is the list see the article for more details on each:
10. Church Burnings
9. Niklas "Ghoul" Kvarforth
8. Gorgoroth's Black Mass in Kraków
7. Mayhem Vocalist "Dead" found… uhhh… Dead
6. Jef Whitehead Charged with Sexually Assaulting Girlfriend with Tattoo Gun
5. Stalaggh Abduct Mental Patients for Projekt Misanthropia
4. Silencer's Nattramn Attacks 5-year-old with Axe
3. Faust of Emperor Stabs Gay Man to Death
2. Gaahl's Assault and Torture Convictions
1. The Murder of Euronymous

Personally, stuff like this makes me lose respect for Black metal and it's musicians, it is one thing to talk about gore and death in a sort of tongue in cheek a la death metal, but this is different.
