Nörway Röcks!

Further to my odd fascination with Norwegian black metal, this week’s New Yorker magazine runs a great photo essay by photographer Peter Beste on black metal bands and fans. I think it is the incongruity with the light bright of Norway and the freakest bleakest aesthetic of these metal heads. And this isn’t just playing dress up, these fellows take the back metal philosophy way seriously. Hell hath no fury like a Norseman scorned?
