Varg Vikernes, the founder of one man black metal band Burzum and former bassist for Mayhem, has posted a series of videos online discussing some of the famous moments in Norwegian black metal history, including his relationship with Øystein "Euronymous" Aarseth, the Mayhem guitarist who he fatally stabbed in 1993. You can watch some of the videos below.

Vikernes remains one of metal musics most infamous characters, having also been convicted of arson in 1994 for the burning of three churches and more recently being arrested with his wife in 2013 on suspicion of plotting acts of terrorism in France, though no charges were filed against them. He was later convicted of inciting racial hatred in the country and was sentenced to six months probation and a €8,000 fine.
