question 1)

why are you trying to be relevant again, even though you were never relevant in the 1st place?

Varg is far from being my idol. I admire his music, but i dont worship him or Burzum. I just hate people, especially metalheads, who accept misconception as truth.

Tell me, what do you know of Varg Vikernes beyond lies spread through the media?

Hes a Black Metal musician, he was in jail for over 15 years for killing a worthless fragile moron...? Anything else???

To accept misconception as truth is almost as worse as those pathetic gangsters who wait for the next "rap war" to bolster their false sense of morals.

We should adhere to a higher logical standard than the rest of "normal" society. Thats the whole point of Heavy Metal. A seperation from society within the most complex music available to the human ear.

And Varg never intended to be on the evening news. Hell, he didn't even want to be recognized with the Black Metal scene, as he often spent his time alone, apart from other musicians. The media blew the situation up, to show the norwegian people true "satanists". How is that Vargs fault?

Who gives a f***? He killed a f***ing moron who would of eventually imploded the entire BM scene in Norway under his own cowardice. In fact the misconception beyond Vargs "motive" is what led to the downfall of Norwegian BM, the aftermath was feuled by lies.

From your one sentence reponses its clear that you guys haven't done your homework.

regardless, he killed some1. you can make it look however you want. he made the decision to kill, and now people look at him the way we do. just as you see it how you do. doesnt make us dumbass rednecks, as you say. makes us look at a murderer and say "murderer". his 15 minutes came and went. now he wants people to listen to what he has to say and think we r going to just open our ears and eyes (reading articles) and say u poor soul, come back to the metal community we missed you!!

Not that I'm condoning Varg's actions or anything, but to be fair he was a teenager when that all happened. Doesn't everyone do dumb things as a kid? He's grown up now and mellowed out, so give him another chance.

Fearthereaper: My buddy Jsin666 did his homework. He lived the Black metal scene in Norway, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say he did his homework. What have you done? Besides that, everyone has a right to their own opinion Mr. Knowitall.

Cris: Why the hell would branded have to be present during a murder in order to form an opinion about it? That is quite possibly the stupidest thing i've read on this thread. Please go kill yourself and leave a note saying Varg did it.

to Fearthereaper: I kind of disagree that he did not want the attention. I thought he killed euronymous just to prove he was the most f***ed up black metal act and that Burzum would always topple Mayhem for most controversial band. I don't really research that band but that is what I heard.

If you ever go to Varg's site, he accounts for everything he has done. With everything that has happened, do I believe he thrives off the attention from it? Absolutly. Its sad, but I kind of believe it has worked. Either way, I liked some of Burzum's material, and look forward to hearing some new stuff. I don't really care about what he has to say, I just wanna hear some music.

uhoh, BG1 and cris....im saying BG1 takes him in the 2nd rd by a ko!! any takers?!?!?!

Varg talked about how he missed all the things while he was in prison. BOO FKN HOO!! he killed a guy, went to prison, and wants people to feel bad that he missed out on christmases, family birthdays, etc. WELL DIPSH1T, ITS ALL YOUR FAULT!! had you not killed the guy, and you would not have spent all that time in prison missing out on all the things you missed out on

while i say every1 deserves a second chance, dont expect every1 to embrace you as a brother of metal. im sure you have the diehards who will no matter what. some of us just look at it as something in the past and its nothing that will make the present any better by trying your best to get people to send you tons of sympathy!!

They were all a bunch of young guys, living in the middle of nowhere, completly bored and playing in the woods half the time like 9 year olds. And in the midst of that, they ended up getting into and playing black metal. (And when I mean all of them, I mean mayhem and all of vargs friends etc.) Varg is actually retardedly obsessed with J. R. R. Tolkien books and applies it to real life. He is just a weird messed up guy. I wouldnt say evil.
