Anyone ever heard of Blood and Thunder?
They're epic melodeath. Anyways they seem quite promising. Debut was this spring. Could only find a full album video..
Kvelertak are a pretty cool band and I'm going to listen to all of their stuff
Nostalgic banner made by Team Brushfire (probably not even an active member anymore)
^ yes. Their first album is really fun but not so much of a fan of Meir
New Gris album out. Il Etait un Foret was amazing. Here's my favourite song from the new album atm

Better to be safe than sorry? Haha. Music aside, Varg has pretty much always been a nutcase imo.
i just don't like the idea of trusting a literal murderer/arsonist/neo nazi with guns. like yeah he hasn't done anything with them yet but it's probably not a bad idea for them to apprehend him so they can be confident he won't do anything
i know you'd dono harm to me
A murderer - true, but it wasn't premeditated, nor did it involve guns.
Arsonist - not sure what this has to do with guns.
Neo-Nazi - I think it's a quite strong term, sure he has certain racial based opinions shall we call them, but given I've never read anything (this isn't to say it doesn't exist) that he praises the third reich of fuhrer in, as Nazi referrers specifically to the NSDAP. But again, having an opinion doesn't mean you shouldn't be trusted with a gun. Do you take guns of everyone who has a prejudice just in case they shoot someone? Personally I think gun ownership is a bigger issue, I don't see the need myself, but when they've been purchased legally by his wife, and are relevant to his lifestyle, then I don't see why it's a problem.
Where do you draw the line, can we arrest men because they might sexually assault a woman, and by you're logic prevent it before it happens? Or arrest someone for having the potential to sell drugs? Surely the law is innocent until proven guilty. I think you should only be arrested if there's a crime committed, or you have hard evidence to support your concern that a crime will be committed. In this case 'his wife bought some guns, and a guy he later labelled a nutjob sent him an email' is about the long and short of it. Hardly seems an arrestable offence to me.
An arsonist is still dangerous he did set fire to churches could you imagine how bad it would of been if someone was inside and when he was arrested over the murder he was meant to have explosives and over 3000 rounds at his house and was planning something big before being caught.
And wasn't he meant to of made friends with Neo-Nazis in prison who after getting out tried to free him. Even if he isn't one he still friends with them, that doesn't really help him at all.
His history does show even if he wasn't planning anything its better to be on the safe side than be sorry and you can't blame the police when you're dealing with someone like Varg.
he hasn't been sentenced or anything, he was just arrested. it is literally a cautionary measure and that is a good thing given his history.
on that note though, are burzum's ambient albums any good? i might check them out

However, if we're using logic, he killed Euronymous with a knife, therefore do you think it's fair to arrest him for owning kitchen knifes, cutlery knifes, and butter knifes? After all he has a conviction for murdering someone with a knife.
The other issue is that everyone is supposed to be equal in the eyes of the law, past crimes aren't supposed to factor into a current charge. Thats why the scales of justice are the symbol of the courts as everything is balanced and fair.
Though this smacks of censoring freedom of speech, something I'm not comfortable with. In the words of Evelyn Beatrice Hall "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"
As for the ambient stuff, I heard Dauđi Baldrs and was not impressed. However I know a few people who rate Hliđskjálf quite highly.
However if you want some Ambient from a black metal musician you seriously need to listen to Ildjarn's album Hardangervidda. It's beautiful.
i am 3 tracks into it now, it's not really what i was expecting. i prefer ambient music that's soundscape-y as opposed to just being chill electric piano tunes. it's not really my kinda deal so far. is it like this the whole way through?
this is more my kind of ambient jam
e: and this
e2: ok it is over, that wasn't so great but it also didn't feel like a waste of an hour so

When he was arrested for Euronmymous murder he was also convicted for burning four churches also his house was meant to have some explosives at the time and was meant to be planning something big according to sources. Though he has denied burning of some churches.
With the Neo Nazi thing I didn't mean how it meant he had a happen but rather saying that he was friends with some which could explain why some people call him a Neo Nazi. Also the issue of Metal Hammer he wasn't interviewed in he did seem to have some comments which could be seen as racist.
I think the reason why the french arrested him was on very shaky ground it seemed they aren't willing to take risks with him no matter what rights are forgotten.
this is the interview in full. I think I've since thrown away that issue last time I had a clear out, so I can't really say how different it is from what was printed.
Well the issue of Metal Hammer dealt more on the topic of the murder, his thoughts of the current black metal scene. I don't think they could of used the link you showed me as a base of their interview or if they did they didn't mention nearly anywhere as much of his views on other races.
Probably their least metal album but the new Karnivool album is ****ing magnificant. Idk if the stream on their website's still up but I highly recommend you check it out
