Documentary Heavy Metal in Syria – “Syrian Metal Is War”

Syrian Metal Is War will be screened at the 30th edition of Wacken Open Air on July 31 at 09:00pm and August 3 at 08:30pm.

It’s a documentary about how the heavy metal is staying alive in Syria, despite the war.

I just have to say that my Middle Eastern metal head friends are some of the bravest metal heads I know. Keep on head banging, guys, and never stop.

“Prior to the war, Syrian metal musicians faced jail time and persecution for “satanism.” During the war, they face new challenges, roadtripping along dangerous highways and dodging snipers to make it to shows at the one remaining café in Aleppo where live metal music still lives. They try to record amid the rumble of bombs and regular power outages. “The symphony of Aleppo,” one musician tells the camera, “is generators and bullets.” – Reason.com

Varg Vikernes Has Ended Burzum for Good

“Burzum Is My Painful Past in a Reeking Bog”

“Burzum was never my choice of life. I didn’t even want to become a musician.”

 

Varg Vikernes has announced that Burzum is no more after giving away his only copy of the project’s 1992 self-titled debut album.

The disc went to a fella named Nathan B, who beat Varg in a challenge of getting from 0-100 kmh (0-60 mph) in their 4×4 vehicles.

Burzum was active between 1991 and 1999, and then again from 2009 until now. The project has 11 studio albums in its discography, the final of which came out in June 2014 under the title of “The Ways of Yore.”
