Varg on Burzum Demos, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, and Offroad Vehicles


Varg Vikernes talked more about how he recorded the Burzum demos by overdubbing cassettes and the bass lines on Mayhem‘s De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas at Grieg Hall in yet another metal history video posted to his ThuleanPerspective Youtube channel.

    Will Varg be hosting the french version of pimp my ride sometime soon?

    I love how Varg embraces being a meme.

    DMU is kinda slow at reporting Varg news.

    1. DMU actually watches the videos unlike SJW sites.

      1. Repeatedly, frequently while drinking box wine.

          That’s a bit insulting, sir, as I’ll have you know my strict preference is for Steel Reserve 211. The drink of choice for the economically-minded Hessian.

        2. Coors and Yuengling of course.

    2. Volunteer as a writer.

      1. I did, but was rejected because I’m a shitty writer without interesting ideas to write about.
        The standards are high on
        But to all who feel up to it, I encourage you to try. There is no risk involved, only the potential for glorious success.

          Don’t give up!

  5. Spectral Nutritionist says:

    Something you guys omit is how in the ’80s (think Moral Majority, Just Say No, Reaganism), any religious activity was anathema to any self-respecting Hesher, as a Right-wing, old, oppressive relic. Nowadays though, it seems niggas rebel precisely by embracing ‘religious’ activities — the Orthodox Black Metal, the quasi-liturgical/Alice Cooper Black Mass of Watain (and most other smearedpaint-faced niggas). They mean to invoke the authoritative POWER of the Divine and of the Church,ironically from which they once rebelled.

    Metal became so goddamn SERIOUS, stone cold, real-niggas-don’t-die. You thought Metallica promo pics were tough…

      nobody thought that

    2. C.M. says:

      In the ’80s, Christian thought was fairly mainstream in the West. Atheist “enlightenment” has gained traction since the ’90s and is fashionable in the mainstream now, and being strictly religious is seen as borderline anathema.

      It’s almost like metal is a reactionary movement.

      1. I think that metal finds itself in reaction to more dominant cultures because it is a minority, not because it is inherently reactive.
        It is its own thing. It just happens to be opposed a lot.
        This thing is neither the religious conservatism of the past nor the last-man liberalism of the present, thus it was opposed to both.

        1. C.M. says:

          I concur.

          Note that all the relevant metal bands had a distinctly negative outlook on Christianity in particular. The US bands took a generally anti-religious stance, while bands from Europe were more likely to praise pagan beliefs of this or that sort, to which the US guys had no real historical exposure. Yet both semi-religious and non-religious bands decried Christianity. Not a super relevant point but it adds some support to your claim.
