Tomas Nyqvist, the founder of legendary Swedish label No Fashion Records and the Putrefaction Magazine zine, was interviewed by Bardo Methodology. Tomas talks about his zine and label, the careers of Morbid, Mayhem, Merciless, Dissection, and Katatonia, and how the infamous Stockholm record store House of Kicks screwed them all over.

    Interesting read, not the least because it confirms (sort of) some suspicions about the post-1991 Mayhem trainwreck I already had. There’s also a link to a mayhem rehtape (one has to wonder how old terms reappear them moment they’re needed again) a studio version of Freezing Moon w/ Dead on vocals (IMHO, the soundboard recording I know beats both of them on quality).

    Something to not look forward to:

    1. The instrumental bootleg mix without Atilla is the best version.

    2. “…Sky Ferreira as a band groupie named Ann-Marit”


      Groupies in black metal? Please say it wasn’t so.

        I would like to think that only dudes are groupies for metal bands.

        I would only watch this movie if it featured the other Culkin, he has that scruffy look, you dig?

        May or may not be a historic person[*], but a Hollywood movie without romance/ sex is an Unding[**]. The general existence of »black metal groupies« is probable (by and large, women are exactly as intelligent/ stupid men, so, whatever some men consider interesting will be interesting to some women, too) and also documented,

        Soon after, I [Necrobutcher] met this chick at a party and ended up taking her back to my place, […] She was a Black Metal girl.

        The choice is ‘interesting’, though,

        This makes the My Dying Bride lady look like dark archangel.

        [*] Lord of Chaos doesn’t exactly have a stellar reputation, Necrobutcher (so far, I haven’t even tried to figure out [the spelling of] his real name, I’m happy that I managed that with Euronymous) calling it »fucking crap« and Vikernes stating that »There are better things to do in life than diving into such a pool of mud.«.

        [**] Un-Thing. No idea if this works in English, too.

          Addition: Oddly enough, considering who’s behind this, the author of the book has a history as extreme rightwing nutjob,

          “War is Peace! Freedom is Slavery! Ignorance is Strength!”
