Chino's vocals on that song were amazing. If the rest of the album is going to be that good, it's gonna AOTY.

Frost comes across an utter joke, like a parody of a black metal dude, and all the scenes of BMs influence in the art world are serious cringe material.
I grew up on and still love a lot of those records but the amount of retrospective mythologising that scene gets is a little over the top. It's always sold more on the juicy church arson/murder angle than anything.
Dat classic Darkthrone trilogy though
Yeah Fenriz seemed like a guy you could actually enjoy hanging out with. Ugh, Varg. Guy is a total dickhead (although the movie didn't really potray him as one). I read some interviews on his homepage and it's really sad. Burzum still is amazing, tho. The other musicians (two guys of Immortal, Faust & Hellhammer) in the movie didn't have much to say so they were kind of unnecessary. Oh yeah and lol @ Frost. The art show with him at the end was hilarious. DIE COUCH DIE~!
Definitely agree with you on the whole myth thing. Probably always gets talked about first and then the music. However, the first time I heard about those church burnings I remember being scared as fuck.
