Former Morbid bassist Dr. Schitz was interviewed by metal webzine Bardo Methodology. Dr. Schitz, a working psychologist in Sweden, tells what drove his bandmate Dead from Mayhem, Dead’s Cotard’s Delusion, and why H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos along with the related Simon Necronomicon from the 1970s (used for lyrical inspiration by Morbid Angel) was so influential to non-English speaking metal lyrics and themes. Check it out.

Thanks for the heads up Daniel
Great interview, thanks for the link.
Excerpt I like because I agree with it ^^
“Dr. Schitz once told me in a previous conversation, in reference to metal performers who beseech forces they might not fully comprehend, that ’if you keep making prank calls on the astral line, sooner or later someone will pick up’.
– Surely, those who actually believe in spirits and autonomous energies will also recognise the very real danger of dabbling with them. It’s not hard to see people in the black metal scene who, if you entertain these notions, are under detrimental demonic influence. Me saying this – it sounds like I’m in league with (television evangelist) Bob Larson. Funnily enough we share similar perspectives on some of these things, though we hold radically different views on much else.”
Be warned, people!
Nothing to be seen here.
Buy a Mayhem bootleg instead.
This should be more condemning but “A suburb is a place where we first cut down the trees and then name the streets after them. And we can even boast about that 20 years later, when the waters of Lethe have washed it all away”.
