    • A couple of murders, a suicide and church burnings are already pretty sensational and really are the whole point of the movie. It won’t be a considered evaluation of Mayhem’s releases, put it that way.  My fear is that it’s going to portray it all as a children’s joke that went wrong. For instance, why is Euronymous portrayed as 17 in the film when in real life he was already 24 when he met Dead and 27 when he died? What sort of chicanery is this?
    • Americans playing Norwegians, no music from Mayhem, Burzum or even Darkthrone in the movie and a Jew playing Varg. Clearly it’s a comedy.

      Looking forward to The Dirt.
    • Wow, a censored version of the story? I’m outraged.  Hard to believe that certain terms were more acceptable in the late-Victorian era than today.  Any idea what was censored?  Also who was the publisher?
    • Signed up because our m the only metal head in my circle of friends/family. I listen to most all metal. (black, prog, melodic, death, symphonic, atmospheric, grind core, experimental, etc). I'm also into survival/Bushcraft , 2 channel audio. Most importantly I'm a staunch anti-prohibitionist. \m/     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
