anyone read this?

Pitchfork: Right. There are tons of black metal bands in 2014 that exist without the original Norwegian narrative in mind. But not all of that violence can just be willed away. There's the non-album Burzum cover that you called “Rundgang (Fuck Varg’s Racist, Anti-Semitic Bullshit Politics Forever!)” as well as your written piece "Confessions of a Former Burzum T-Shirt Wearer". How important was it to you to situate that position so that people didn't think you were being complicit with these kinds of thoughts?

 

DD: It's something that I've worried about not just in a self-protective way, but in a genuinely soul-searching way. And I think about it because years ago, a church burned down in Baltimore, and I thought it would be a hilarious thing to take a picture of me in a Burzum t-shirt doing a thumbs up in front of this burnt church. The point of the photograph in my mind was that there's this incredible double standard and hypocrisy in Burzum fandom where every right-thinking liberal fan of extreme music says, "Oh, I love Burzum's music. I hate their politics." And to take a picture was to be the worst-case scenario of the person who admires the church-burning and is like, "No, let's burn churches. Thumbs up! Burn churches.That's what I like." That's the sort of thing that you're not supposed to say, but, obviously, the glamor and allure of criminality and vandalism, and a hatred of organized religion doesmobilize why people are, in part, excited by Burzum. It's not just the music. I don't feel like it's acceptable to try to draw this bright line between aesthetics and politics because they're always connected. There's no politically innocent music-listening room that isn't tied to political realities. 

 

On the other hand, it's not like art is only ever a symptom of politics. So while they're always connected, they're never the same. For me, that was why that picture was funny and why I took it. But friends of mine reacted to that image and called me out. And I have to admit, from another perspective, that's a white guy in public wearing a racist band's t-shirt—a reinforcement of white supremacy. And I really don't think it's good enough for white men to wield a word like "parody" as a shield by which to legitimize shitty behavior. So I felt real shame about that picture. And now I've embroidered "Fuck Varg's Politics" in rainbow pink thread onto the only Burzum shirt I wear. I wore it to Maryland Death Fest last year, and it got a lot of double takes and started a lot of good conversations. The more I thought about it, I was like, “Well, what do I want to do?” How could I possibly push back against Burzum in a way that wasn't just a self-congratulatory, “I’m not a racist” maneuver. So that's why I wanted to cover an ambient track of Burzum's, so that when somebody searches for "Rundgang", they'll find "Rundgang" attached to my statement.

also, this http://thou.bandcamp.com/

also, i saw ulcerate and inter arma on mothers day and it was absurd. the drummer was wearing a deathspell omega shirt so in my head, that confirms the rumors that he is their drummer. also the guitarist is a god.

additionally, inter arma has a song on their album thats essentially a cover/re-imagining of the diablo tristram theme so i'm in love

The first track on heathen, free will
So grim

New Spectral Lore album is rad as fuck, probably my favorite BM album of the year. One man black metal band from Greece, a good mixture of sort of modern "progressive" black metal, old school grim as fuck BM.
