Looks like our boy Varg is at it again. Varg Vikernes was arrested in France on Tuesday, June 16 along with his wife, Marie Chachet. Police say he was a suspect in planning a massacre after acquiring a copy of the far right wing terrorist’s Breivik’s, manifesto and searched his home for weapons and explosives. Breivik is responsible for both the Oslo bombing and Utoeya Massacre which left 77 people dead. The police decided to take both Varg and his wife into custody after Marie Chachet purchased two firearms. They will remain in custody until further investigation.
Varg has already served a 16 year sentence for numerous counts of arson and the murder of fellow black metaller Euronymous. He is also involved in some questionable Neo-Nazi and nationalist groups. Is anyone really surprised?
I guess the part I find the most hilarious is the fact that I remember being at the edge of my seat, anticipating Varg’s release in 2009 only for him to write pure garbage upon his release from prison. In reality, Varg’s beliefs have changed little from the time he was arrested to now. If anything he’s become more extreme. Varg is simply more criminal than musician. But in good faith why don’t we go ahead and celebrate Varg’s early career with a little Det Som En Gang Var. Happy Listening! Hails!
