Top Ten Most Disturbing Things Done by Black Metal Musicians


The Top Ten

1 The Murder of Euronymous

Even if Varg murdered him, it's a good thing that he did. Euronymous was a self-indulgent prick who only cared about making the world fear him, even giving Dead the idea to kill himself. - Caleb9000

The most infamous crime in black metal history. Black metal musician Varg Vikernes (Burzurm), stabbed Euronymous, the guitarist of Mayhem, 23 times - 2 stabs to the head, five to the neck, sixteen to the back. The story behind the murder is a widely debated topic. - winner333

Euronymous was evil. We know what he did to dead.

Euronymous made such a depressed 22 year old with a bright future ahead of him, his own bandmate at that, commit sucide for his personal gain... and said it was "cool". Plus, it wasn't like Varg just went to some random man and killed him. - Lucretia

2 Faust Stabbed A Gay Man to Death

He was trying to visit family said "He was drunk and obviously gay." - Lucretia

Faust from Emperor, stabbed a gay man 37 times, and the justification he gave in court was that the man "made a pass" at him. - winner333

The drummer of the band Emperor stabbed a gay man 37 times, for supposedly "making a pass at him". - winner333

3 Dead's Suicide and Euronymous' Reaction

Mayhem's vocalist, Dead (yep, that was his name), committed suicide in the bands' house by slitting his wrists and shooting himself with a shotgun. His suicide note simply read "Excuse all the blood. Cheers."
On entering the house and finding Dead's dead body, what do you think Euronymous did? Call the cops? Pass out with shock? No! He pulled out a camera and clicked a picture of the corpse to use it as the band's next album cover. - winner333

One of the most vile and cruel things done in the history of music. Even if Varg murdered him, I'm kinda glad he did. - Caleb9000

Well I don't know what to say as a Black metal fan. - say10

Euronymous seriously said Per did something very cool to Necrobutcher slightly after dead died. If your friend killed them selves is that what you would tell one of your other friends? - Lucretia

4 Gaahl Tortured A Man

Gaahl, the vocalist of Gorgoroth, locked a man in his house and tortured him for several hours. According to the victim, Gaahl injured the man and collected his blood in a cup and then threatened the man that he would drink it. - winner333

Gaahl is quite crazy. You have to wonder what inspries his music. - Lucretia

5 Murder of Sandro Beyer

Two members of the band Absurd, murdered a 15 year old called Sandro Beyer. Sebastian Schausell, who was one of those two, says that he did it because he heard a voice in his head saying "tote Beyer", which translates to "Kill Beyer". - winner333

6 Gorgoroth's Black Mass In Krakow

Gorgoroth performed a black mass in a concert in Krakow and used 80 liters of sheep's blood and displayed sheep heads on stakes. The band was charged by the police for "cruelty to animals". - winner333

Wait till Peta hears about this. But as a vegetarian, that was not right of them. - Lucretia

7 Stalaggh Abducted Mental Patients For Vocals On Their Album

The band Stalaggh abducted 7 mental patients from a mental institution for "guest vocals" on an album. They gathered the patients in an abandoned chapel and asked them to scream for several hours. - winner333

As long as it sounds good... still, that was wrong - Lucretia

But it turned out well.

Brilliant, a way to make more money - CerealGuy

8 Shining's Concert In Sweden

One of the most violent concerts in history. A description would probably get this list deleted. - winner333

What happened there I need to know! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

9 Neo-Nazism

A very small group of black metal artists identify themselves as neo-Nazis and make music that is referred to as National Socialist Black Metal. They have been heavily criticized by most prominent musicians in the black metal scene. - winner333

Gaahl is openly gay and neo-Nazi, what? Also Varg Vikernes,who is a very talented national socialist black metal artist, those controversial few. - Lucretia

10 Church Burnings

Church burning are performed by black metal musicians and fans both. Over 50 churches have been destroyed, including some historically significant ones.
To end on a positive note, I hope people understand that not all of the metal community is like these people. The people mentioned in this list belong to the bare 2% of the total metal-heads and are universally frowned upon. - winner333

50 churches isn't really that much total - Lucretia

L support that
