True Norwegian Black Metal tour
    Friday February 17, 2012 9:00am - 12:00pm @ Royal Christiania Hotel
    Back by popular demand, here´s a new opportunity to explore the roots of true Norwegian black metal. For the average music fan, the story of Norwegian black metal is in essence about murder, suicide and burning churches. Many of the seminal events in this
    dark chapter of Norwegian music history took place in Oslo between 1991 and 1993. In cooperation with The Inferno Festival, by:Larm have put together a field trip visiting the key sights on a trip back in time. NB: The bus leaves from outside the Royal Christiania Hotel main entrance at 09.00 sharp. Please meet in the lobby no later than 08.50.The beginning of almost any movement can often be attributed to the vision of one person, who from the dissemination of his ideas gains followers and the ideas spread. This man was Øystein Aarseth aka Euronymous. He was through his record store, Helvete (Hell) and his band, Mayhem, the key person of the early Norwegian black metal scene, his vision resulted in not only development of black mental into the phenomenon it was but also contributed to his untimely demise. It was the equally infamous artist Burzum, Varg Vikernes aka Count Grishnack, who killed Euronymous in his own Oslo apartment on the 10th
    of August 1993. This date marked the end of an era, and the small scene that until then had been hidden away from the public gaze was suddenly thrust on to the front pages of the Norwegian tabloids and even made the headlines far from Norwegian shores. This was a time of great creative experimentation with music and image, and the murder and church fires are regarded by most people from the scene as an absolute tragedy, and as a huge setback which cast a dark shadow over anything to do with the Norwegian metal for well over a decade after. The Greater Oslo black metal scene of today has seen the birth of prominent bands such as Mayhem, Satyricon, Darkthrone, Ulver, Dimmu Borgir, Arcturus, Aura Noir, Dødheimsgard and many many more. Anders Odden (Cadaver, Celtic Frost, Satyricon) is your guide on this journey through the places and events that spawned the legend that is now known as TRUE NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL. Conducted in English.
