LORD[S] OF CHAOS: The bloody rise of the satanic metal underground (1998), revised & enlarged (2003) [Ou: uma biografia obviamente não-autorizada do delinqüente eternamente juvenil Varg. V. de VVinter e VVar / & outras estórias não-relacionadas] – Moynihan & Søderlind

Our world, increasingly homogenized and with the entire spectrum of its cultural creations adulterated for palatable mass-consumption, needs dangerous ideas more than ever. It may not need the often ill-formed and destructive ideas expressed by some of the protagonists in Lords of Chaos, but we felt all along that this is an issue for the individual reader to decide.”

The notion of a Protocols of the Elders of Zion-style Jewish cabal running the world is absurd to begin with, but all the more so in a country with practically no Jewish population, and we felt the need to point this out.”

The Satyricon single Fuel for Hatred received heavy air-play on one of Norway’s 3 biggest radio stations, and just before this revised edition went to press we heard that Dimmu Borgir’s new album will be hawked to the public through TV advertising spots.”

William Pierce – The Turner Diaries

Heavy Metal exists on the periphery of Pop music, isolated in its exaggerated imagery and venting of masculine lusts. Often ignored, scorned, or castigated by critics and parents, Heavy Metal has been forced to create its own underworld. It plays by its own rules, follows its own aesthetic prerogatives. Born from the nihilism of the 1970s, the music has followed a singular course. Now in the latter half of the 1990s it is often considered passé and irrelevant, a costume parade of the worst traits in Rock. Metal is no longer a staple of FM radio, nor are record labels pushing it like they used to. Watching MTV and reading popular music magazines, one might not even realize Heavy Metal still existed at all.”

Arthur Lyons – The Second Coming: Satanism in America

In the first half of the twentieth century, Jazz was considered particularly dangerous, with its imagined potential to unleash animal passions, especially among unsuspecting white folk. (…) In his book on the Rolling Stones, Dance With the Devil, Stanley Booth quotes the New Orleans Times-Picayune in 1918: <On certain natures sound loud and meaningless has an exciting, almost an intoxicating effect, like crude colors and strong perfumes, the sight of flesh or the sadic pleasure in blood.>”

More directly tied to deviltry than Jazz, and likewise imbued with the potency of its racial origins, was Blues. Black slaves often adopted Christianity after their enforced arrival in America, but melded it with native or Voudoun strains. Blues songs abound with references to devils, demons, and spirits. One of the most influential Blues singers of all time, Robert Johnson, is said to have sold his soul to the Devil at a crossroads in the Mississippi Delta, and the surviving recordings of his haunting songs give credence to the legend that Satan rewarded his pact with the ability to play. Johnson recorded only 29 tunes, some of the more famous being Crossroads Blues, Me and the Devil Blues, and Hellhound on My Trail. The leaden resignation of his music is a genuine reflection of his existence. Life for Johnson began on the plantations, wound through years of carousing and playing juke joints, ending abruptly in 1938 when at the age of 27 he was poisoned in a bar, probably as a result of an affair with the club owner’s wife.”

A DÉCADA QUE COMEÇOU 26 DIAS MAIS CEDO: “The Stones took their diabolical inspiration seriously, deliberately cultivating a Satanic image, from wearing Devil masks in promotional photos to conjuring up sinister album titles such as Their Satanic Majesties Request and Let it Bleed. The band’s lyrics ambivalently explored drug addiction, rape, murder, and predation. The infamous culmination of these flirtations revealed itself at the Altamont Speedway outdoor festival on December 6, 1969. Inadvertently captured on film in the live documentary Gimme Shelter, it was only moments into the song Sympathy for the Devil before all hell broke loose between the legion of Hell’s Angels <security guards> and members of the audience, ending with the fatal stabbing of Meredith Hunter, a gun-wielding black man in the crowd. The infernal, violent chaos of the event at Altamont made it abundantly clear the peace and love of the ‘60s wouldn’t survive the transition to a new decade.” 7, o mais belo número.

Page’s interest in Crowley developed to a far more serious level than the Satanic dabbling of the Stones; his collection of original Crowley books and manuscripts is among the best in the world. Page held a financial share in the Equinox occult bookshop (named after the hefty journal of <magick> Crowley edited and published between 1909–14) in London and at one point even purchased Crowley’s former Scottish Loch Ness estate, Boleskine. The property continued to perpetuate its sinister reputation under new ownership, as caretakers were confined to mental asylums, or worse, committed suicide during their tenures there.” “If there is any early Rock band bearing exemplifying the basic themes that would later preoccupy many of the Black Metal bands in the ‘90s, it is Led Zeppelin.”

I read a lot of Dennis Wheatley’s books, stuff about astral planes. I’d been having loads of these experiences since I was a child and finally I was reading stuff that was explaining them. It lead me into reading about the whole thing —black magic, white magic, every sort of magic. I found out Satanism was around before any Christian or Jewish religion. It’s an incredibly interesting subject. I sort of got more into the black side of it and was putting upside-down crosses on my wall and pictures of Satan all over. I painted my apartment black. I was getting really involved in it and all these horrible things started happening to me. You come to a point where you cross over and totally follow it and totally forget about Jesus and God.” GZR, Seconds Magazine, #39, 1996, pg. 64.

Groups further from the spotlight than Black Sabbath—such as Black Widow and Coven—could afford to be even more obsessive in their imagery. The English sextet Black Widow released three diaphanous Hard Rock albums between 1970–72, and later appear as a footnote in books that cover the history of occultism in pop culture. The chanting refrain of their song Come to the Sabbat evokes images of their concerts which featured a mock ritual sacrifice as part of the show. Beyond sketchy tales of such events, and the few recordings and photos they’ve left behind, Black Widow remains shrouded in mystery.

Coven are just as obscure, but deserve greater attention for their overtly diabolic album Witchcraft: Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls. Presented in a stunning gatefold sleeve with the possessed visages of the three band members on the front, the cover hints at a true Black Mass, showing a photo with a nude girl as the living altar. The packaging undoubtedly caused consternation for the promotional department of Mercury Records, the major label who released it, and the album quickly faded into obscurity. Today it fetches large sums from collectors, clearly due more to its bizarre impression than for any other reason. The songs themselves are standard end-of-the-‘60s Rock, not far removed from Jefferson Airplane; the infusion of unabashed Satanism throughout the album’s lyrics and artwork makes up for its lack of strong musical impact. In addition to the normal tracks, the album closes with a thirteen minute Satanic Mass.”

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first Black Mass to be recorded, either in written words or in audio. It is as authentic as hundreds of hours of research in every known source can make it. We do not recommend its use by anyone who has not thoroughly studied Black Magic and is aware of the risks and dangers involved.” Coven, Witchcraft, Mercury Records, SR 61239.

Coven included the attractive female lead singer Jinx as well as a man by the name of Oz Osbourne, who bore no relation to the British vocalist Ozzy. In an additional coincidental twist, the first track on the Coven album is titled Black Sabbath.”

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law”

Stories persisted for a time of a planned Satanic Woodstock in the early ‘70s where Coven was to play as a prelude to an address by Anton LaVey, High Priest of the Church of Satan.”

King Diamond, the singer and driving force behind Mercyful Fate, one of the most important openly Satanic Metal bands of the ‘80s, acknowledges he received dramatic influences from a Black Sabbath concert he attended as a kid in his native Denmark in 1971. He also tells of finding inspiration from Coven’s lead vocalist Jinx: An amazing singer, her voice, her range… not that I stand up for the viewpoints on their Witchcraft record, which was like good old Christian Satanism. But they had something about them that I liked…

Anton Szandor LaVey made headlines when he founded the first official Church of Satan on the dark evening of Walpurgisnacht, April 30, 1966. The fundamentals of the Church were based not on shallow blasphemy, but opposition to herd mentality and dedication to a Nietzschean ethic of the antiegalitarian development of man as a veritable god on earth, freed from the chains of Christian morality.”

We played to skinheads and punks and hairies—everybody. Where some guy with long hair couldn’t come into a Punk gig, all of the sudden it was really cool to go to a Venom gig for anybody. That’s why the audience grew really quick and became very strong; they were always religiously behind Venom and they’ve always stayed the same.” Abaddon

I never thought we’d be able to enter a studio again after that because we were really dirty sounding. But it turned out that 85-90% of all the fan mail that came to the record company from that record (the compilation was titled Scandinavian Metal Attack) was about our songs. So the guy from the record company called me up and said, <Hey, you really need to put your band together again and write some songs, because you have a full-length album to record this summer>. (…) Everybody seems to think that I’m a megalomaniac with a big head or something, but it wasn’t really my fault —I should have been born in some place like San Francisco or London where I would have had a real easy time putting this band together.” Quorthon

Much of the explanation for this sound was simply the circumstances of recording an entire album in two-and-a-half days on only a few hundred dollars. The end result was more extreme than anything else being done in 1984 (save maybe for some of the more violent English Industrial <power electronics> bands like Whitehouse, Ramleh, and Sutcliffe Jugend) and made a huge impact on the underground Metal scene.”

Aplicável ao “projeto ATS”: “I’m not one inch deeper into it than I was at that time, but your mind was younger and more innocent and you tend to put more reality toward horror stories than there is really. Of course there was a huge interest and fascination, just because you are at the same time trying to rebel against the adult world, you want to show everybody that I’d rather turn to Satan than to Christ, by wearing all these crosses upside down and so forth. Initially the lyrics were not trying to put some message across or anything, they were just like horror stories and very innocent.”

Like any style hyped incessantly by the music industry, Thrash Metal’s days were ultimately numbered. The genre became too big for its own good and major labels scrambled to sign Thrash bands, who promptly cleaned up their sound or lost their original focus in self-indulgent demonstrations of technical ability.”

The whole Norwegian scene is based on Euronymous and his testimony from this shop. He convinced them what was right and what was wrong.”

Norway’s official religion is Protestantism, organized through a Norwegian Church under the State. This has deep historical roots and a membership encompassing approximately 88% of Norway’s population. However, only about 2-3% of the population are involved enough to attend regular church services. A saying goes that most Norwegians will visit church on three occasions in their lives—and on two of them, they will be carried in.”

An example of the conservative Christian influence in Norway was the banning of Monty Python’s classic comedy The Life of Brian as blasphemous. The amicable rivalry and fun-making between Norwegians and Swedes led to the movie being advertised in Sweden as <a film so funny it’s banned in Norway>.” “While America has figures like Edgar Allan Poe as a part of the literary heritage, and slasher movies are screened on National TV, Norway’s otherwise highly prolific movie industry has produced but one horror film in its 70-year history. Horror films from abroad are routinely heavily censored, if not banned outright. This taboo against violence and horror permeates every part of Norwegian media. In one case, Norwegian National Broadcasting stopped a transmission of the popular children’s TV series Colargol the Singing Bear on the grounds that the particular episode featured a gun.”

When denied something, one tends to gorge on it when access is finally gained. Black Metal adherents tend to be those in their late teens to early twenties who have recently gained a relative degree of freedom and independence from their parents and other moral authorities.” Aqui, ao contrário, o pré-adolescente se rebela e o adultinho adere ao sertanejo e forró, arrependido e tosado, quando não rebola no axé.

One strange aspect of the Black Metal mentality of the earlier days was the insistence on suffering. Unlike other belief systems, where damnation is usually reserved for one’s enemies, the Black Metalers thought that they, too, deserved eternal torment. They were also eager to begin this suffering long before meeting their master in hell.”

I think Norway, being a very wealthy country with a high standard of living, makes young kids very blasé. It’s not enough to just play pinball anymore. They need something strong, and Black Metal provides really strong impulses if you get into it.” Desse ponto de vista, era pro Aloísio virar o metaleirinho do mal e eu ser o normal dos 2, concentrado em objetivos “realistas”. Conquanto… o jovem frustrado acaba caindo de barriga no fascismo quando vislumbra o “poder-na-máquina” e sente que pode tocá-lo e participar dele… Bolsonaro é seu goregrind e nada lhe faltará!



Do the names eerily reflect the karma of the personalities they denote? Or are the people destined to fulfill the fate foretold in titles they (ir)reverently adopt?”

Mayhem began in 1984, inspired by the likes of Black Metal pioneers Venom, and later Bathory and Hellhammer. Judging from an early issue of Metalion’s Slayer magazine, Aarseth initially adopted Destructor for his stage name as guitarist. The other members of the earliest incarnation of the band were bassist Necro Butcher, Manheim on drums, and lead vocalist Messiah. Not long after this Aarseth took on Euronymous as his own personal mantle—presumably it sounded less comical and more exotic than his previous pseudonym. His new name was a Greek title mentioned in occult reference books as corresponding to a <prince of death>.”

Mayhem played their first show in 1985. Their debut demo tape, Pure Fucking Armageddon, appeared a year later in a limited edition of 100 numbered copies. By 1987 someone called Maniac replaced the previous singer, whom Aarseth henceforth referred to as a <former session vocalist>, despite his appearance on the demo as well as the first proper release, that year’s Deathcrush mini-LP.” “Dead, the distinctive singer for the Stockholm cult act Morbid, joined Mayhem and moved to Oslo. A new drummer was found in Jan Axel <Hellhammer> Blomberg, one of the most talented musicians in the underground. Even with the mini-LP selling briskly, and Mayhem’s bestial reputation increasing, the band and its members remained dirt poor.”

Euronymous found him. We only had one key to the door and it was locked, and he had to go in the window. The only window that was open was in Dead’s room, so he climbed in there and found him with half of his head blown away. So he went out and drove to the nearest store to buy a camera to take some pictures of him, and then he called the police.” Hellhammer, the drummer

He just sat in his room and became more and more depressed, and there was a lot of fighting. One time Euronymous was playing some synth music that Dead hated, so he just took his pillow outside, to go sleep in the woods, and after awhile Euronymous went out with a shotgun to shoot some birds or something and Dead was upset because he couldn’t sleep out in the woods either because Euronymous was there too, making noises.”

It might sound a bit weird, but Mayhem was the band that everyone had heard of, but not many people had actually heard because they had released the demos which were quite limited and the mini-LP itself was very limited. But I was lucky because I knew Maniac, the vocalist, so he had some extra copies of the mini-album and he gave me one. I was very impressed because it was the most violent stuff I had ever heard, very brutal. I remember I thought that these people like Euronymous, Maniac, and Necro Butcher were very mysterious, because they didn’t do many interviews but they were always in magazines and I saw pictures of them. They had long black hair and you couldn’t see their faces, it was mysterious and atmospheric.” Bård Eithun


I met Euronymous and Dead at a gig in Oslo in 1989; it was an Anthrax concert and I met them outside”

Dead hated cats. I remember one night he was trying to sleep. A cat was outside his apartment, so he ran outside with a big knife to get the cat. The cat ran into a shed [galpão] and he went after it. Then you heard lots of noise, and screaming, and there was a hole in the shed where the cat came out again, and Dead ran after it with his big knife, screaming, hunting the cat, only dressed in his underwear. That was his idea of how to deal with a cat.”

I remember Aarseth told me, <Dead did it himself, but it is okay to let people believe that I might have done it because that will create more rumors about Mayhem>. (…) But he did use some stuff from the brain to make necklaces.”

There is a bootleg of the Sarpsborg show [1990] called Dawn of the Black Hearts: Live in Sarpsborg [vídeo?], released by someone in South America.” Metalion

That’s one thing about worshiping death—why worry when people die?”

I see Dead, people.


Oh, everywhere on the stage!

She told me that the first <plane> in the astral world has the color of blue. The earthly plane has the color of black. Then comes a gray that is very near the earthly one and is easy to come to. The next one further is blue, then it gets brighter and brighter till it “stops” at a white shining one that can’t be entered by mortals. If any mortal succeeds in entering it, that one is no longer mortal and can not come back to the earthly planes nor back to this earth.” Morto, o Místico

No one speaks ill of him, which is rare in such an insular and competitive realm as the extreme music underground. As many will testify, however, Aarseth appeared to feel little sorrow over the loss of Dead, instead glorifying his violent departure in order to cultivate a further mystique of catastrophe surrounding the band.”

This has nothing to do with black, these stupid people must fear black metal! But instead they love shitty bands like Deicide, Benediction, Napalm Death, Sepultura and all that shit!! We must take this scene to what it was in the past! Dead died for this cause and now I have declared war! I’m angry, but at the same time I have to admit that it was interesting to examine a human brain in rigor mortis. Death to false black metal or death metal!! Also to the trendy hardcore people… Aarrgghh!” Euronymous “manifesto”

Dead died wearing a white T-shirt with I ❤ Transylvania stenciled across it.”

if we ever come to, for example, India, the most evil thing that we can do there that I have in mind will be to sacrifice a holy cow on stage.” Euro.




I’d rather be selling Judas Priest than Napalm Death, but at least now we can be specialized within <death> metal and make a shop where all the trend people will know that they will find all the trend music.”

O que vocês fazer hoje, Cérebro Mole e Solto?

O que fazemos todas as noites, Blacky… Tentar conquistar o mundo para Satanás!

Aarseth also kept in touch with a growing number of extreme bands from outside Norway whom he likewise encouraged and made plans to release records by: Japan’s Sigh, Monumentum from Italy, and the bizarre Swedish entity Abruptum. Only a few of these schemes would ever be realized before Aarseth’s death, mostly because he was never cut out to be a businessman. He ran his label ineptly, and the capital to invest in new releases was simply not there.”


He was a Devil worshiper and he was against Nazis, for reasons I don’t know, but that’s what he said. After the arrest in early ’93 then he got into this Nazi stuff.” Eithun

the shelves contained bands like Metallica and Godflesh.”

he had a specific taste for German electronic music like Kraftwerk.”

Politically, Aarseth was a long way from the nationalist and often pseudo-right-wing sentiments that are so prominent in Black Metal today. He proclaimed himself a communist, and for a while had been a member of the Rød Ungdom (Red Youth), the youth wing of the Arbeidernes Kommunist Parti (Marxist-Leninistene) —The Marxist/Leninist Communist Workers Party. Though rather few in number, the party had an appeal for intellectuals, including many prominent writers and politicians, and thus maintained a strong grip on Norwegian cultural life for many years. Rød Ungdom was aggressively anti-Soviet, and looked to China and Albania for inspiration. Despots like Pol Pot were also viewed as models of resistance against Western imperialism.”

Some of the treasured objects in his collection were heroic photographs of Nicolae Ceaucescu, the former dictator of Rumania and one of Aarseth’s idols. <Albania is the future>, he would muse to anyone willing to listen.”

Varg came to Oslo for a time and moved into the basement of the record shop, living in the barren space there along with Samoth, the guitarist of Emperor.”

On the second Burzum release, Aske (Ashes), bass playing would be done by Samoth, but with this sole exception Vikernes maintained his project entirely alone.”

Very few such corpse-painted portraits of Vikernes exist—the fashion seems to be something more particular to Aarseth. If it is true that Vikernes introduced the ideology of medieval-style Devil worship to Norwegian Black Metal, it must be also acknowledged that not a moment was lost before Aarseth began trumpeting it as his own.”

As many as 1,200 stave churches may have existed in the early Middle Ages; only 32 original examples survived in the second half of this century. That total has since been revised to 31.”

News of the destruction of one of Norway’s cultural landmarks made national headlines. It would not be long before other churches began to ignite in nighttime blazes. On August 1st of the same year the Revheim Church in southern Norway was torched; twenty days later the Holmenkollen Chapel in Oslo also erupted in flames. On September 1st the Ormøya Church caught fire, and on the 13th of that month Skjold Church likewise. In October the Hauketo Church burned with the others. After a short pause of a few months’ time, Åsane

Church in Bergen was consumed in flames, and the Sarpsborg Church was destroyed only two days later. In battling the blaze at Sarpsborg a member of the fire department was killed in the line of duty. Some would later consider this death the responsibility of the Black Circle.” “The authorities are reluctant to discuss the details of many of these incidents, fearing that undue attention may literally spark other firebugs or copycats to join the assault which Vikernes and his associates began in 1992.”

In eleventh-century England, arson was a crime punishable by death. Later, during the reign of King Henry II, a person convicted of arson would be exiled from the community after they had suffered the amputation of one hand and one foot.”

Lewis & Yarnell – Pathological Firesetting

True pyromaniacs tend to have a sexual impulse behind their action, according to psychologist Wilhelm Stekel, whose Peculiarities of Behavior covers the affliction in detail.”

It’s not a Satanic thing, it’s a national heathen thing. It’s not a rebellion against my parents or something, it’s serious. My mother totally agrees with it. She doesn’t mind if someone burns a church down. She hates the Church quite a lot. Also about the murder (of Østein Aarseth), she thinks that he deserved it, he asked for it. So she thinks it’s wrong to punish me for it. There’s no conflict between us at all about these things. The only thing she disliked was that I liked weapons and wanted to buy weapons, and suddenly she got a box of helmets at her place because I ordered them! Bulletproof vests, all this stuff…” Varg


I said, I know who burned the churches, to the journalist, and I was making a lot of fun with him because we told him on the phone, we have a gun and if you try to bring anybody we’ll shoot you. Come meet me at midnight and all this, it was very theatrical. He was a Christian, and I fed him a lot of amusing info. Very amusing! Of course he twisted the words like usual. After he left we lay on the floor laughing.

We thought it would be some tiny interview in the paper and it was a big front page. The same day, an hour or so after I talked to him on the phone, the police came and arrested me. That was why I was arrested. I didn’t tell them anything. I talked to the police that time and I told them, I know who burned the churches —so what? They tried to say, We’ve seen you at the site, and all this, and I said, No you haven’t!

I’d already killed a man so it’s okay to be involved in this too, to burn down a church.” Eithun

VON [americana] were merely an obscure group who managed to release one raw-sounding demo tape, Satanic Blood, which became legendary within the Norwegian scene.” O primeiro full length (Satanic Blood, idem) dos caras é de 2012!

IMAGEM 1. Kerrang!, 27/03/1993

The Kerrang! exposé is also notable as it appears to be the first media story which labels the Black Metal scene as <neo-fascist>. Arnopp quotes members of Venom and mainstream UK Metal band Paradise Lost (who the article claims were haphazardly attacked by teenage Black Metalers while on tour in Norway), referring to the Satanic Terrorists as Hitlerian Nazis.”

I support all dictatorships—Stalin, Hitler, Ceaucescu… and I will become the dictator of Scandinavia myself.” V.V. Mau-Mau

I didn’t care much about the value of human life. Nothing was too extreme. That there were burned churches, and people were killed, I didn’t react at all. I just thought, Excellent! I never thought, Oh, this is getting out of hand, and I still don’t. Burning churches is okay; I don’t care that much anymore because I think that point was proven. Burning churches isn’t the way to get Christianity out of Norway. More sophisticated ways should be used if you really want to get rid of it.” Ihsahn (Emperor)

I told them, why not burn up a mosque, the foreign churches from the Hindu and Islamic jerks—why not take those out instead of setting fires to some very old Norwegian artworks? They could have taken mosques instead, with plenty of people in them” Hellhammer o Batera

The epidemic mostly afflicted poor black churches in the South (States), and public outrage against a presumed conspiracy of racist terrorism resulted in the President’s formation of a National Church Arson Task Force in June, 1996. The Task Force has since concluded that no nationwide conspiracy exists, and suspects arrested in relation to the the fires have been blacks and Hispanics as well as whites. The motives in specific incidents have ranged widely, from revenge to vandalism to racial hatred.”

I understood that he was a homosexual very quickly. He was asking if I had a light, but he was already smoking. It was obvious that he wanted to have some contact. Then he asked me if we could leave this place and go up to the woods. So I agreed, because already then I had decided that I wanted to kill him, which was very weird because I’m not like this—I don’t go around and kill people. (…) He was walking behind me and I turned and stabbed him in the stomach. After that I don’t remember much, only that it was like looking at this whole incident through eyes outside of my body. It was as if I was looking at two people who were having a fight—and one had a knife, so it was easy to kill the other person. If something happens that is obscure, it’s easier for the mind to react if it acts like it is watching it from outside of yourself.” Eithun

The bizarre duo Abruptum (SUE), who allegedly recorded their music during bouts of self-inflicted torture, was praised by Aarseth as <the audial essence of Pure Black Evil>. He released their debut album Obscuritatem Advoco Amplectère Me on Deathlike Silence in 1992. Østein had also managed, with financial assistance from Varg Vikernes, to release the first Burzum CD on DSP. The second Burzum effort, Aske, was released in early 1993, some months after the burning of the Fantoft Stave Church. It was around this time, in the first months of the year, that bad blood arose between Vikernes and Aarseth. Their disagreement appears to come at the same period when Øystein was also arguing with members of the Swedish scene, causing a general animosity to surface between Black Metalers in the two neighboring countries.” “There was a certain degree of cooperation between the two groups, but the recent frictions had been strong enough that when Øystein Aarseth was found slaughtered in the stairwell of his apartment building on August 10, 1993, the initial suspicion of many was directed at the Swedes.”

People who never knew what Black Metal was, or Death Metal, or Metal at all, were attracted to this because they thought it was cool. People who never knew Grishnackh and never knew Euronymous. Oh yeah, Black Metal—that’s the new thing. There were so many new bands starting at this time in ’93 who were influenced by the writing in the newspapers.” Metalion

Aarseth had been forced to close the Helvete store a few months earlier, due to overwhelming attention from the media and police after the initial Black Metal church fire revelations. His parents were upset about all the negative publicity and, since they had helped him finance the shop, they successfully leaned on him to shut it down. Vikernes sarcastically points out how Aarseth’s inconsistent nature often resulted in deference to his parents’ wishes instead of adhering to the black and <evil> image he supposedly embodied: <Øystein once came to one of the newspapers wearing a white sweater, and later apologized to the scene, in case he had insulted anybody! It was all because of his parents. He was 26 years old!>

Øystein owed Varg a significant sum of royalty payments from the Burzum releases on Deathlike Silence, although given the poorly-run nature of the record label, this was hardly unusual or unexpected. Vikernes denies there was any monetary motive behind his actions. Others claim the attack came about as a result of a power struggle for dominance of the Black Metal scene, although astute insiders like Metalion are skeptical: That’s stupid reasoning, because you can’t expect to kill someone and have everyone think of you as the king and forget about him. That’s very, very primitive. It’s something more than that, I think.“Also Grishnackh’s mother paid for the studio recording of the first album, and Euronymous owed her money which she was supposed to get back.”

When he was sitting in his shop drinking Coca-Cola and eating Kebab from the Paki shop next door, it was all our money he bought everything with. It was dishonest pay. He was a parasite. Also he was half Lappish, a Sami, so that was a bonus. Bastard!” V.

They told the police they heard a woman screaming! I was laughing when I read about it. He ran away, pressing the doorbells and calling Help!

Bam! he was dead. Through his skull. I actually had to knock the knife out. It was stuck in his skull and I had to pry it out, he was hanging on it—and then he fell down the stairs. I hit him directly into his skull and his eyes went boing! And he was dead.”


They didn’t dare. They thought it was some drunken fight. It’s the worst neighborhood in Oslo—60% colored people.”

When three people are going to tell the same story to the police, in interrogations lasting seven hours, it will go to hell.” Snorre Ruch, o Cúmplice

Varg was saying that what Bård had done was uncool, but inside the scene Bård’s actions commanded respect.”

The truth of the matter is that Snorre had shortly before joined Mayhem as a second guitar player. It is difficult to believe that he could have cared less about killing the founder of the band he was in—doubly difficult given Mayhem’s position as such a legendary group in the underground. In hearing his and Vikernes’s versions of the story, both are flawed. With his history of mental problems, one far-fetched explanation may be that Snorre was too daft to comprehend what he was actually participating in.”

The only foolish thing I did and the only thing I regret, is not killing (Snorre) as well. If I’d killed him as well I would not have gotten any more punishment if I was caught, and secondly, I wouldn’t have been caught. That’s what I regret.”

What is striking about members of the Scandinavian Black Metal circles in general is how little they cared about the lives or deaths of one another. When Dead killed himself, it became merely an opportunity for Aarseth to hype Mayhem to a new level. When he himself died violently two years later, his own bandmates speak of the killing with a tone of indifference more suited to a court stenographer.”

With the exception of Darkthrone, the major Norwegian Black Metal bands were now in hiatus, their key members facing prison sentences for arson, grave desecration, and murder. The legal proceedings that would follow disrupted the entire scene and pitted different factions against one another. People felt forced to choose sides: pro-Vikernes or pro-Euronymous. At this point a cult developed around the memory of Euronymous, hailed as <the King> or <Godfather of Black Metal>. As many have commented in the preceding interviews, much of this was hyperbole, emanating from a second generation of musicians trying to gain credibility by riding on the back of the legend of Aarseth’s Black Metal legacy.”

He simply refused to cooperate with the authorities, and maintained he was innocent until proven guilty. He followed the advice of his lawyer and never testified in court. The same cannot be said of the other offenders, most of whom confessed in detail once they were pressured by the police. On the one hand, this is understandable given their young age, relative naivety, and fear of worse punishments if they refused to admit their wrongdoing.”

ERROS E PUERILIDADES DA POLÍCIA NORUEGUESA: “Especially difficult to take seriously is the alleged calendar of <Satanic holy days> reprinted in the report, with many of the dates involving the sexual molestation of minors—something that is strongly condemned by all established Satanic organizations. And while it might be argued that fringe religious phenomena like Satanism are often so bewildering that it’s hard to accurately assess their practices, even complete novices in the study of New Religious Movements should begin to suspect something is wrong when they see references to dates that don’t exist, such as April 31. Unless, of course, Satanists are so evil that they follow their own calendar.” ZAGALLO (OLLAGAZ) AMOU.

Kirkebranner og satanistisk motiverte skadeverk also refers to stories that never really reached the media when the Satanic furor was at its height.”

But despite his smart-ass remarks and mental capabilities, Vikernes was no match for the seasoned investigators of the Kripos [FBI norueguês]. He sensed that the police net was tightening around him and that he was no longer in control of the situation, especially as the Oslo police dispatched its Church Fire Group to Bergen in 1993 to follow the goose steps of the Count and his subjects around Bergen.”

Lendas a respeito de Vikinho: “Vikernes knocked on the door of the police investigation’s impromptu headquarters in Room 318 of the Hotel Norge in Bergen, and seems to have virtually forced his way into the suite.”





The word Varg has a great meaning for me. I could speak about this matter for an hour.”

Grishnackh is an evil character on the side of Sauron.”

That’s typical trial bullshit. Like my psychiatrists who examined me, one of them was a Jew and a Freemason! The other was a communist. My lawyer was a homosexual. The other lawyer was a Freemason. The one single Christian faith healer in Norway was in the jury! Can you imagine? In other words, a person who says, I can look through you and with the power of Jesus pull out the evil spirits who make you sick!

There is one person who has always stood by Varg’s side and spoken out rigorously in his defense: his mother Lene Bore. Not only has she attempted to improve the public perception of her son, she also visits him frequently, helps him deal with correspondence, and assists in business matters relating to Burzum.

A number of Burzum albums have been released since his imprisonment and all have sold admirably well on the worldwide market. Royalties for the record sales are received by Lene Bore, a fact that allegedly allowed for the development of serious trouble in the future. Lene Bore also helped provide the money for recording and releasing the early Burzum releases on Aarseth’s Deathlike Silence label, and as a result she had occasion to meet a number of Varg’s friends in the Black Metal scene. Her comments are interesting, for she has dealt with an amazing amount of unrest as a result of her son’s actions over the years, and some of her impressions of Varg’s life are quite different from his own.”


I think it might be here that Varg’s dislike toward other peoples started. He experienced a very differential treatment. The other children in his class would get slapped by their teachers; he would not be. For example when they were going to the doctor, even when there were other children waiting in line, Varg would be placed first. He reacted very strongly to this. He could not understand why we should go first when there were so many before us. He had a very strongly developed sense of justice. This created a lot of problems, because when he saw students being treated unfairly, he would intervene, and try to sort things out.”


If he had racist tendencies to begin with, I am sure that they came to the surface when he lived in Oslo.”

LONG-HAIRED SKINHEADS: “It’s difficult to say. When I was three years old we moved to a road named Odinsvei, Odin’s Walk, and we were playing with the neighbor. He had German toy soldiers, but he always wanted to have the American soldiers, because they were the big heroes in his view. So I ended up with the German soldiers, as he was five years older than I. And I actually came to like them. It developed from soldiers to running around with SS helmets and German hand grenades and a Schmeizer with a swastika on it. In time we tried to figure it out —what the hell does this mean? That’s how it really began, and it developed. I was a skinhead when I was 15 or 16. Nobody knows that. People say that suddenly I became a Nazi, but I was actually a skinhead back then. It was in waves—in ‘91 I was into occultism, in ‘92 Satanism, in ‘93 mythology and so on, in waves.


I have very little contact with him. They’re divorced. He left about ten years ago. There wasn’t any big impact. I was glad to be rid of him; he was just making a lot of trouble for me, always bugging me. He was in the Navy. We were raised very orderly; it was a good experience. I had a swastika flag at home and he was hysterical about it. He’s a hypocrite.¹ He was pissed about all the colored people he saw in town, but then he’s worried about me being a Nazi. He’s very materialistic, as is my mother really, but that’s the only negative thing I can say about her.² The positive thing is that she’s very efficient, and in business I have to have someone take care of my money and I can trust her fully. I know she will do things in the best way.”

¹ Yeah, that prettily sums it up for all of us – satanists, pagans, nihilistics, depressed, guilty or innocent boys… with bad dads! Apenas troca “Nazi” por “PT” e “pessoas de cor” por “corrupção” (que ele pratica) e aí tens.

² This is war! UHHH


It was an Iraqi elementary school. The English school couldn’t take us because they were full. I went to a regular Iraqi school. I could use some basic English. I think it was my mother’s idea, because she didn’t want us to stay home, bored. We couldn’t go out too much because of the rabid dogs and all this, so she put us in school, just to keep us active.”

In Bergen it’s a more aristocratic society I was part of, because of my mother mainly. I had very little contact with colored people, really. In Bergen we are still blessed with having a majority of whites—unlike Oslo, which is the biggest sewer in Norway.”

When I was a skinhead there still weren’t any colored people, but there were these punks—that was more the reason I went over to the other side.” He-he

We liked the Germans, because they always had better weapons and they looked better, they had discipline. They were like Vikings. The volunteers from America were tall, blond guys, who looked much more like the ones they were attacking than some Dagos who were waving them good luck when they left home. It’s pretty absurd.”

Our big hope was to be invaded by Americans so we could shoot them. The hope of war was all we lived for. That was until I was 17, and then I met these guys in Old Funeral.”


I got interested in occultism through other friends. We played role-playing games, and some of these guys (all older than me) started to buy books on occultism, because they were interested in magic and spell casting. They showed me the books and then I bought similar things. But the music guys weren’t interested in that stuff at all, they only cared about food. [QUE PORRA É ESSA? HAHA]


Originally it was Thrash Metal, and then it became Death-Thrash or Techno-Thrash, and I lost interest. I liked the first Old Funeral demo. It had ridiculous lyrics, but I liked the demo and that was why I joined with them. They developed into this Swedish Death Metal trend; I didn’t like that so I dropped out. But I played with them for two years.” The fart(Varg) that should’ve been.

We were drawn to Sauron and his lot, and not the hobbits, those stupid little dwarves. I hate dwarves and elves. The elves are fair, but typically Jewish—arrogant, saying, We are the chosen ones. So I don’t like them. But you have Barad-dûr, the tower of Sauron, and you have Hlidhskjálf, the tower of Odin; you have Sauron’s all-seeing-eye, and then Odin’s one eye; the ring of power, and Odin’s ring Draupnir; the trolls are like typical berserkers, big huge guys who went berserk, and the Uruk-Hai are like the Ulfhedhnar, the wolfcoats. This wolf element is typically heathen. So I sympathize with Sauron. That’s partly why I became interested in occultism, because it was a so-called <dark> thing. I was drawn to Sauron, who was supposedly <dark and evil>, so I realized there had to be a connection.”

Just like democracy claims to be <light> and <good>, I reasoned that then we obviously have to be <dark> and <evil>.” J.R.R. se revira no túmulo.

SALADA DE MAIONESE ESTRAGADA NA CAIXA ENCEFÁLICA: “I never said I will become the dictator of Scandinavia myself. I did say that I support Stalin, Hitler, and Ceaucescu, and I even said that Rumania is my favorite country—an area full of Gypsies! But the point is that Rumania is the best example of communism, and when people can realize how ridiculously the whole thing works, they can see what it really is. (…) It may be a provocative way to say it, but if there wasn’t Stalin, Hitler would look even worse. Now at least we can say, look at Stalin—he’s worse. He killed 26 million.”

Well, there was a T-shirt that Øystein printed which said <Kill the Christians.> I think that’s ridiculous. What’s the logic in that? Why should we kill our own brothers? They’re just temporarily asleep, entranced. We have to say, <Hey, wake up!> That’s what we have to do, wake them up from the Jewish trance. We don’t have to kill them—that would be killing ourselves, because they are part of us.”

He was at first allowed a computer, which he used for correspondence and for the preliminary texts which would form his nationalist heathen codex. Some of the essays he composed were forwarded to correspondents and began to appear in underground publications around Europe. Most of these concerned his investigations into the esoterica of Nordic mythology and cosmology. At a certain point, after he had compiled a large portion of his book, the prison authorities decided to take away his computer; presumably they were worried he was somehow employing it for nefarious ends.” “By titling his treatise Vargsmål, Vikernes seeks to place himself in mythic lineage as a modern-day figure worthy of the ancient sagas.” “The official publication of Vargsmål would only come about years after it was written. With Varg’s front-page notoriety there were certain publishers interested in releasing the book, obviously figuring to make a quick buck on the sensationalism that could be generated, but it appears that most backed out when they had a chance to review the actual contents. In addition to mythological commentary, the book brims with volatile statements and racial, anti-Christian, nationalist rhetoric.”

I would like to find a woman to live with in peace and quiet, far away from the world’s problems, but I cannot. It is my duty to sacrifice myself and my personal wishes for the benefit of my tribe.” He-he

Varg Vikernes serves the role of a pariah and heretic to Norwegians, similar on a number of levels to that of Charles Manson in America. Both profess a radical ideology at odds with, and at times unintelligible to the average citizen. Both insist they have done nothing wrong. Both espouse a revolutionary attitude, imbued with strong racial overtones. Both have become media bogeymen in their respective countries, and both knowingly contribute to their own mythicization. Both also understand well the inherent archetypal power of symbols and names—especially those they adopt for themselves.”

With his increasing nationalism, Vikernes has discovered his predecessor in Vidkun Quisling, the Norwegian political leader who founded a collaborationist pro-German government in the midst of the Second World War. Quisling was tried and executed for treason shortly after the war’s end. As a result his name has entered international vernacular as a synonym for <traitor>. In Norway, that name is still anathema even today.” Quisling – That Inhabited Worlds Are To Be Found Outside of the Earth, and the Significance Thereof for Our View of Life, o manifesto deste idiota.

Norway’s conversion to Christianity, made possible by St. Olav’s death as a martyr at Stiklestad, was described by Jacobsen [dissidente do quislinguismo, ainda mais extremista] as the introduction of <something false and unnatural into our folk’s life>. It was therefore logical for him to condemn Quisling’s adoption of the St. Olav’s cross as the NS symbol, declaring that the party symbol itself was non-Nordic.”

He lamented not being able to legally register his own religious organization in Norway due to his criminal record. Toward this goal he has, however, formed the Norwegian Heathen Front, a loosely knit operation through which he will issue propaganda. The members of German Black Metal band Absurd, also currently behind bars, are involved with a branch of the organization in their country.” Além de ideólogos degenerados, péssimos músicos. Um absurdo, literalmente.

he plans to employ his philosophy on the nature of women as a basis for NHF strategy. His awareness of the woman’s role in revolutionary activities is not unlike that of Charles Manson before him, although Vikernes claims to have arrived at it from personal observation during his Black Metal period.”

A PSICOLOGIA INFANTO-JUVENIL DO FASCISMO: “The groundwork of the Black Metal scene is the will to be different from the masses.¹ That’s the main object. Also girls have a very important part in this, because they like mystical things and are attracted to people who are different, who have a mystique.² When a girl says <Look how cute he is> when she sees a picture of someone, her male friends will think <She likes him. If I look like him maybe she will like me as well.> They turn toward the person she admires.² The way to make Norway heathen is to go through the girls, because the males follow the girls.³” Varg

¹ Baudrillard diria: Coitado, ele ainda está preso às concepções socialistas-revolucionárias! As massas não são nada conceituável, ou são tudo, não há relação binária passível de ser feita entre massa e não-massa, não é simples assim. Não mais. Mas sendo a massa o advento inevitável do mundo moderno decadente, negar a massa como os neo-pagãos presumem, seria negar a vida, e não reafirmá-la, como pensam os Anti-Nazarenos.

Males aren’t extreme really. You find females are more to the left or more to the right than the males. Females are more communistic, more extremely Marxist-Leninist, or more extremely rightist than the males.”

In Oslo everybody fucks everybody in the scene. If one person gets a venereal disease, everyone does. The females I know in the Black Metal scene are not very intelligent, they are basically just whores. That’s a typical Oslo phenomenon.

The people I correspond with are not Black Metal girls at all. Some of them were, but they realized that I don’t like it and then they realized they didn’t really like it either. They were just doing it because they wanted to get in touch with certain people. The way to power is through the women. Hitler knew this as well. Women elected Hitler.”

O TRAPÉZIO DOS MÍMICOS: “Ironically, while Vikernes’s name is more or less synonymous with Black Metal, he takes great care to distance himself from that musical milieu. He even now claims the early Burzum releases—records regarded today as milestones of the genre—never were Black Metal music at all, instead classifying them as <standard, bad Heavy Metal>. He passionately distances himself from all forms of Rock and Roll, stressing that Rock’s roots in Afro-American culture make it alien to white people.”

Presently, Vikernes is no longer even permitted to listen to CDs. The only music he is currently allowed to experience must come via MTV—something which, in his case, might be considered a cruel and unusual form of punishment.”

Denied a musical outlet, Vikernes has focused his strong creative drive on writing. His output has encompassed political tracts, a book on mythology called Germansk Mytologi og Verdensanskuelse (Germanic Mythology and Worldview), and fiction, including a short novel. His fictional works can be compared to the infamous neo-Nazi novels Hunter and The Turner Diaries, in the sense that much of it functions as a dramatization of National Socialist rhetoric. Vikernes seems to be slightly more aware of his literary limitations than the late author of the aforementioned books, Dr. William Pierce (a former physics professor who became director of the American racialist political group the National Alliance), who makes his characters’ tender pillow-talk read like political sermonizing.”

In the early days of the Heathen Front, the organization’s mailing address was one and the same with Vikernes’s private P.O. box prison address. This would, of course, mean that any prospective members would have their letters read and, one presumes, registered by the authorities. And this actually strengthens the Heathen Front’s assertion that Vikernes is not the leader: it would be very hard for him to do an effective job of it. Whatever his official role may be, Vikernes certainly has left a strong mark on the Heathen Front. Its program was written by Vikernes, and this is a mix of rather orthodox National Socialist doctrine and neo-Heathen, anti-Christian ideas, along with some emphasis on environmentalism.” “The Allgermanische Heidnische Front [subdivisão do já irrelevante Heathen Front] and its subdivisions in Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, Holland, Iceland, Germany, and Sweden (with <affiliated subdivisions> in Russia, Finland, and the USA) are probably little more than Internet tigers. While the AHF’s policy of concentrating on producing web pages might be a bid to attract [“““]intellectually[”””] inclined youthful recruits rather than the streetfighters that make up much of the younger rank-and-file of other European National Socialist organizations, the focus on the Internet may have a more pragmatic motive.

One of the wonders of the Internet is that, in theory, a single person with a little know-how, a modem, and an acceptable computer can create web pages just as impressive as those of any huge organization. And, still theoretically, a loose group of e-mail correspondents across Europe can take on the appearance of a tremendously organized international network. In addition to its functioning as a political equalizer, the added attraction to all this is that Net know-how is mainly the field of younger people—exactly the sort the AHF has aboard. But while Vikernes’s network might theoretically consist of one teenage computer nerd per country, each still living in his parents’ house, such an estimation would probably be way off the mark. So how real is the AHF?” “whether the AHF will be noticed in the future probably depends most on if it can succeed at recruiting young Burzum fans (its most realistic recruitment base) into political activism—or at providing a conduit for them into more militant groups and scenes.” Cenário pouco auspicioso para a “organização”.

He also explains their recruiting strategy: <We don’t approach the great masses, but rather let individuals from the masses approach us instead. This is probably why so many see us as an ‘Internet project’ or as inactive and passive.> braço sueco

National-Socialists in Sweden are as much a minority as they are everywhere else, and young activists are likely to rub brown-shirted¹ shoulders with members of other groups in informal settings like concerts, meetings, and parties.”

while the Third Reich was in some ways a modern welfare state (at least for those whose blood and ideology were in line with NS doctrines), Vikernes asserts that military veterans who are disabled in future wars for the greatness of Germania should commit suicide rather than be a burden on the resources of the Nation.”

The journal Kulturorgan Skadinaujo appears to be the work of young students, some of whom have adopted an academic writing style. Though the fanzine-style musings that occasionally appear in its pages detract from its academic tone, the main reason why Skadinaujo seems doomed to fail as a scholarly venture is the fact that it reviews books like the pseudo-archaeology of Graham Hancock side by side with properly executed scholarly works. The end result is hardly something to show your professor.”

He has taken to interpreting the Old Norse texts as proof of—or at the very least circumstantial evidence for—contact between humans and extra-terrestrials in ancient times.”

And in the same way that Hymir sent all his trolls out to wreak revenge on Thor for having gone fishing and catching the Midgard Serpent in one of the most well-known of the Norse myths, a war was waged on Atlantis. After the conflict, the island sank into the ocean and the Aryans sought refuge on other continents, where they eventually mixed with lower races of men. The Atlantean Aryans only survived as a pure race in Northern Europe, where they can produce children like Vikernes: blonde, blue-eyed, and long-skulled.”

The roots of Nazi preoccupation with flying saucers are complex, and date back to before the Second World War. Clear indications exist that the Third Reich had a program for developing flying saucers as part of its war machine.” Legal, salvou meu dia.

After the war, the UFO myth entered the subconscious of the West, with the rumored UFO crash at Roswell and alien abduction stories becoming standard features in modern folklore. And while many of the contemporary myths dramatized by the tremendously successful TV series The X-Files might seem fantastic, the strangest ideas are the ones that people actually seem to believe in.”

While the circumstances that led to the creation of the book [ufologia babaca envolvendo a tribo Africana dos Dogon!] are convoluted (as any arguments dealing with ancient astronauts invariably are), at the root of the mystery lie the writings of the French anthropologists Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen, who did research on the Dogon in the 1930s. Twenty years later, the Frenchmen published their story of how the Dogon had revealed this astronomical knowledge about Sirius (Sigu Tolo in the native language) to them.

But other anthropologists who later visited the area have been unable to find the same astronomical knowledge circulating among the Dogon, and the most realistic hypotheses seem to be that the one Dogon informant who divulged the information to the two Frenchmen either learned his Sirius lore from earlier visitors (of the human variety), or indeed from Marcel Griaule himself, a keen astronomy fan who took along star-charts to help extract information. Either wittingly or unconsciously, the Dogon native might have had this knowledge transferred to him from his interviewer—or else Griaule overemphasized what was passed to him through his interpreter, thus finding exactly what he wanted to. Furthermore, many of the Dogon’s astronomical <facts> are just plain wrong.

In the world of the pop esotericism, however, the fact that claims are exposed as lackluster or even fraudulent often has little bearing on their continuing distribution via the myriad magazines and bookshops that cater to alternative ideas.”

Sitchin was first attracted to this peculiar field of research because he was puzzled by the Nefilim, who are mentioned in Genesis, 6. There, the Nefilim (also spelled Nephilim) are described as the sons of the gods who married the daughters of Man in the days before the great flood, the Deluge. The word Nefilim is often translated as <giants>, meaning that the Old Testament asserts there were days when giants walked upon the earth. If this sounds a bit like the occult narrative of Varg Vikernes, it only becomes more so when Sitchin claims that the correct and literal meaning of the word Nefilim is <those who have come down to earth from the heavens>. [eram filósofos: viviam com a cabeça nas nuvens!] Fallen angels procured the daughters of men as mates, which Sitchin takes to mean that the space-farers mixed their superior DNA with that of primitive mankind, leading to a quantum leap in human genetic and cultural evolution which spawned the blossoming Mesopotamian cultures.” Tão crível seria a hipótese de que caiu um meteorito radioativo na Terra e fez com que gorilas e chimpanzés entrassem em acelerada mutação – com mortalidade de virtuais 100%… Os escassos sobreviventes desta hecatombe ecológica, entretanto, viriam a ser Prometeus… Cof, cof.


DR. MICHAEL ROTHSTEIN [cético que estuda gente que acredita em OVNIs]: In certain ways, yes. Nazism has always had some kind of relation to the occult and certain Nazi groups (often outside the actual Nazi parties) have made a special point out of it. However, this really is fringe stuff [indie, marginal]. What is more interesting is the fact that UFOs on many occasions have been interpreted as devices developed by Nazi scientists, as German secret weapons. This is, I believe, more interesting than notions of clones of Hitler hiding under Antarctica in huge UFO-related facilities. Nazis are in many ways the demons of the modern world, at least most people find them disgusting and dangerous, and any association between the bewildering UFOs and these groups points to a certain understanding of UFOs as sinister or demonic.”

As long as people wish to believe, they will readily accept authorities that support their beliefs. The phenomenon is not that Von Däniken is able to persuade people of anything. The phenomenon is that people want Von Däniken to provide material for them to believe in. Furthermore, this is not in itself a <far-out> belief. Any belief in things out of the ordinary could be considered <far out>: God, for instance, or the Resurrection of Christ, flying yogis, whatever.”

As hinted by Rothstein, one of the most unusual marriages of UFO lore and National Socialism is the idea that the Third Reich is alive and well under the Antarctic ice-cap, keeping watch over the world by means of its flying saucers and waiting for the day to return and free the world from Zionist bankers, communists, and other enemies of the Aryan race.” “The most eloquent spiritual representative of such ideas in the present day is the Chilean dignitary and author Miguel Serrano [1917-2009], a former diplomat (to India, Yugoslavia and Austria) who counted both Carl Jung and Herman Hesse [curiosamente, anti-nazi notório – autor da novela Steppenwolf] among his circle of friends.” Serrano – C.G. Jung and Hermann Hesse: A Record of Two Friendships (1965) (original: El círculo hermético, de Hesse a Jung)

Mattias Gardell is a lecturer in religious anthropology at the University of Stockholm. He has studied radical religions extensively, and is the author of a book on the Nation of Islam, Countdown to Armageddon. His latest research project has involved a year of travelling around North America and interviewing figures involved in the neo-Nazi and Ásatru movements, two milieus that sometimes overlap—and especially so in the case of Varg Vikernes.”

Such ideas of blood as a carrier of hereditary information are common in Nazi circles, and can in some way be compared to Carl Jung’s theory of the collective unconscious.”

Their law of the strong scorns pity as a four-letter word; they await the day it is banished from the dictionaries. They despise doctrines of humility. Christ’s Sermon on the Mount is even worse poison to their ears. War is their ideal, and they romanticize the grim glory of older epochs where it was a fact of life. Where is the source for such a river of animosity and primal urges? Did torrents of hatred arise simply from the amplification of a phonograph needle vibrating through the spiralled grooves of a Venom album? Is Black Metal music possessed of the inherent power to impregnate destructive messages into the minds of the impressionable, laying a fertile seed destined to sprout into deed? To an enlightened mind it would seem unlikely.”

After reading a number of similar texts by Varg Vikernes, the Austrian artist and occult researcher named Kadmon was inspired to investigate in detail what enigmatic connections might exist between the phenomena of modern Black Metal and the ancient myths of the Oskorei. The Oskorei is the Norse name for the legion of dead souls who are witnessed flying, en masse, across the night sky on certain occasions. They are rumored to sometimes swoop down from the dark heavens and whisk a living person away with them. This army of the dead is often led by Odin or another of the heathen deities. Throughout the centuries, there are many reports from people who claim to have experienced the terrifying phenomenon—they attest to having seen and heard the Oskorei with their own eyes and ears. The tales of the Oskorei also refer to real-life folk customs which were still prevalent a few hundred years ago in rural parts of Northern Europe.” “noise, corpse-paint, ghoulish appearances, the adoption of pseudonyms, high-pitched singing, and even arson.”

In German folklore, stories of the Oskorei correspond directly to the Wild Hunt, also termed Wotan’s Host. Wotan (alternately spelled Wodan) is the continental German title for Odin, Varg Vikernes’s <patron deity>”

Gyldendal’s Store Norske Leksikon (The Large Norse Encyclopedia)

O SATÃ DE VIKERNES É O JUDEU ERRANTE: “There were often fights and killings at those places Oskoreia stopped. They could drink the yule ale and eat the food, but also carry people away if they were out in the dark. One could protect against the ride by gesturing in the shape of a cross or by throwing oneself to the ground with the arms stretched out like a cross. The best way was to place a cross above all the doors. Steel above the stalls was effective as well. The Oskorei was probably regarded as a riding company of dead people, perhaps those who deserved neither Heaven nor Hell.”

the cover of Bathory’s first <Viking> album, Blood Fire Death (1988), features a haunting depiction of the Oskorei in action. The remarkable development is how so many of the minute details of the legends would inadvertently or coincidentally resurface in unique traits of the Norwegian Black Metal adherents. This behavior had already become prominent years before the scene acquired its current attraction toward Nordic mythological themes, and before Vikernes ever began writing commentaries on such topics.”

Many of the <Satanic> bands even evince a strong fascination for native folklore and tradition, seeing them as vital allegories which represent primal energies within man. This type of viewpoint is expressed well by Erik Lancelot of the band Ulver:

<The theme of Ulver has always been the exploration of the dark sides of Norwegian folklore, which is strongly tied to the close relationship our ancestors

had to the forests, mountains, and sea. The dark side of our folklore therefore has a different outlook from the traditional Satanism using cosmic symbolism from Hebraic mythology, but the essence remains the same: the ‘demons’ represent the violent, ruthless forces feared and disclaimed by ordinary men, but without whom the world would lose the impetus which is the fundamental basis of evolution.>”

Ler Two Essays on Analytical Psychology do Jung: “There are present in every individual, besides his personal memories, the great <primordial> images, as Jacob Burckhardt once aptly called them, the inherited powers of human imagination as it was from time immemorial. The fact of this inheritance explains the truly amazing phenomena that certain motifs from myths and legends repeat themselves […] It also explains why it is that our mental patients can reproduce exactly the same images and associations that are known to us from the old texts.”

Kadmon also points out a few strong contrasts between the rural folklore and Black Metal, which he sees as an urban phenomena. He is not entirely correct in this assertion, however, as many of the Norwegian Black Metal musicians do not come [from] cities such as Oslo, Bergen, or Trondheim, but live in small villages in the countryside. And Varg Vikernes, too, is proud to make the distinction that he is originally from a rural area some distance outside of Bergen, rather than the city itself. Further examples can be found with the members of Emperor, Enslaved, and a number of other bands.”

Besides Bathory, one other early Scandinavian Metal band had also extolled the religion and lifestyle of the Vikings in their music, a group from the ‘80s called Heavy Load. Possibly they also inspired some of the kids later involved in Black Metal, and indeed they have been mentioned with appreciation by some close to the scene, like Metalion.”

The group Immortal even went so far as to make a professional video clip with every band member shirtless in the midst of a freezing winter snowscape, furiously playing one of their songs. A video for the Burzum song Darkness goes much further, leaving out any human traces whatsoever—the entire 8:00 clip is based on images of runic stone carvings, over which shots flash of rushing storm clouds, sunsets, rocks, and woods. Co-directed by Vikernes from prison via written instructions, the result is impressively evocative despite the absence of any storyline or drama.”

POUCO IMANENTE VOCÊ, NÃO É, DISCÍPULO EX-QUERIDINHO DE FREUD? “According to Carl Jung, it is not always modern man who actively seeks to consciously revive a pre-Christian worldview, but rather he may become involuntarily possessed by the archetypes of the gods in question. In March, 1936, Jung published a remarkable essay in the Neue Schweizer Rundschau, which remains highly controversial to the present day. Originally written only a few years after the National-Socialists came to power in Germany, it is entitled Wotan.

Jung states in no uncertain terms his conviction that the Nazi movement is a result of <possession> by the god Wotan on a massive scale. He traces elements of the heathen revival back to various German writers, Nietzsche especially, who he feels were <seized> by Wotan and became transmitters for aspects of the god’s archetypal nature. He states, <It is curious, to say the least of it […] that an old god of storm and frenzy, the long quiescent Wotan, should awake, like an extinct volcano, to a new activity, in a country that had long been supposed to have outgrown the Middle Ages.>

Jung would some years later reveal his conviction [not proofs, like Moro] that both Nietzsche and he himself had experienced personal visits [Jung estuprado na infância?] in their dreams from the ghostly procession of the <Wild Hunt>, the German equivalent of the Oskorei.”

In Norway and Sweden there has also been growing general interest in the indigenous religion of their forefathers, to the point that at least one heathen group, Draupnir, has been recognized as a legitimate religious organization by the Norwegian government. Along with them, other Ásatrú organizations such as Bifrost also hold regular gatherings where they offer blot, or symbolic sacrifice, to the deities of old.

There is absolutely no specific connection between these Nordic religious practitioners and the Black Metal scene. In fact, public assumptions that such a link would exist have been a severe liability to these groups. Dispelling negative public impressions of their religion is made considerably more difficult with characters like Vikernes speaking so frequently of his own heathen beliefs to the press.”

O TRÁGICO ATRASADOR DA REASCENSÃO MITOLÓGICA: “Vikernes’s extreme and bloody interpretation of indigenous Norse religion is just as problematic to the neo-heathen groups as was his flaming-stave-church and brimstone variety of Satanism a few years earlier to organizations like the Church of Satan. When contemporary figures sought to revive the old religion of Northern Europe, they had not intended to bring back uncontrollable barbarism and lawlessness with it.”

There is another obscure old fable of the Oskorei, where they fetch a dead man up from the ground, rather than their usual choice of someone among the living. It was collected by Kjetil A. Flatin in the book Tussar og trolldom (Goblins and Witchcraft) in 1930. If the folkloristic and heathen impulses of Norwegian Black Metal are in fact some untempered form of resurgent atavism, then this short tale is even more surprising in its ominously allegorical portents of events to come over 60 years later with Grishnackh, Euronymous, and the fiery deeds that swirled around them”

Originally bestowed with Kristian for his first name, Vikernes found this increasingly intolerable in his late teenage years. When he first introduced himself to the Black Metal scene it was still his forename. Sometime in 1991–92 he legally changed his name to Varg. His choice of a new title is curious in light of the actions he would later commit, and the legend that would surround him—although he claims to have adopted it mainly for its common meaning of <wolf>. If one understands the etymology and usage of the word varg in the various ancient Germanic cultures (and there is no evidence that Vikernes did at the time of his name change), his decision becomes downright ominous.

A fascinating dissertation exists entitled Wargus, Vargr—‘Criminal’ ‘Wolf’: A Linguistic and Legal Historical Investigation by Michael Jacoby, published in Uppsala, Sweden, but written in German. It is a highly detailed, heavily referenced exploration of the Germanic word Warg, or vargr in Norse.”

Qual é o lado mais podre do LobisOmen?

The designation was used in the oldest written laws of Northern Europe, often with a prefix to add a specific legal meaning, such as gorvargher (cattle thief) or morthvargr (killer).”

another ancient Germanic legal text, the Salic Law, which states: <If any one shall have dug up or despoiled an already buried corpse, let him be a varg.> Hehehe


Vargr is the same as u-argr, restless; argr being the same as the Anglo-Saxon earg. Vargr had its double signification in Norse. It signified a wolf, and also a godless man. […] The Anglo Saxons regarded him as an evil man: wearg, a scoundrel; Gothic vargs, a fiend. […] the ancient Norman laws said of the criminals condemned to outlawry for certain offenses, Wargus esto: be an outlaw! (be a varg!) […] among the Anglo Saxons an utlagh, or out-law, was said to have the head of a wolf. If then the term vargr was applied at one time to a wolf, at another to an outlaw who lived the life of a wild beast, away from the haunts of men—<he shall be driven away as a wolf, and chased so far as men chase wolves farthest,> was the legal form of sentence—it is certainly no matter of wonder that stories of outlaws should have become surrounded with mythical accounts of their transformation into wolves.” “As can be seen from the Baring-Gould quote above, the wolf connotation of the term later became associated with werewolves, and in certain sources the Devil himself is referred to as a werewolf. However, this negative outlook on wolves appears to surface after the onset of the Christian period of Europe; the pre-Christian heathens had a quite different perception. “A number of Black Metal bands display a fascination for the wolf. The most obvious example is Ulver, whose name itself means wolves in Norwegian.”

The wolf lives in the forest, symbol of the demonic world outside the control of human civilization, and serves thus as a link between the demonic and the cultural, chaos and order, light and dark, subconscious and conscious. Still I do not by this mean to say that the wolf represents the balance point between good and evil—rather he is the promoter of <evil> in a culture which has focused too much on the light side and disowned the animalistic. He symbolizes the forces which human civilization does not like to recognize, and is therefore looked upon with suspicion and awe.” E. Lancelot

In the older Viking times, wolves were totem animals for certain cults of warriors, the Berserkers. A specific group is mentioned in the sagas, the Ulfhethnar or <wolf-coats>, who donned the skin of wolves. Baring-Gould recounts the behavior of the Berserks who, wearing these special vestments, reached an altered state of consciousness:

<They acquired superhuman force […] No sword would wound them, no fire burn them, a club alone could destroy them, by breaking their bones, or crushing their skulls. Their eyes glared as though a flame burned in the sockets, they ground their teeth, and frothed at the mouth; they gnawed at their shield rims, and are said to have sometimes bitten them through, and as they rushed into conflict they yelped as dogs or howled as wolves.>”

Wolves are sacred to Odin, the <Allfather>, who is usually accompanied by his own two wolf-elementals, Geri and Freki. Many Germanic personal first names can be traced back to another root word for wolf, ulv or ulf, so this was clearly not an ignoble or derisive connotation, except in its varg form.” “In the old sagas Odin is bestowed with myriad names and titles, some of which include Herjan (War God), Yggr (the Terrible One), Bölverkr, (The Evil Doer), Boleyg (Fiery Eyed), and Grímnir (the Masked One).”

It happens that he betrays his believers and his protégés, and he sometimes seems to take pleasure in sowing the seeds of fatal discord..” Georges Dumézil

In her essay on the word Warg, Mary Gerstein also discusses comparative symbolism between Odin, who hung on the world tree Yggdrasil for 9 nights in order to gain wisdom, and Christ, who was hung on the cross as an outlaw [3 days], only to be reborn as an empowered heavenly deity. Vikernes, despite his heathenism, has in certain respects set himself up as both avatar and Christ-like martyr for his cause, willing to suffer in prison for his sacrifice.”


zeus arrrrrrghhhhhhhhh

horror arquetípico:


GIMME THE HARP: “Odin is the embodiment of every form of frenzy, from the insane bloodlust that characterized the werewolf warriors who dedicated themselves to him, to erotic and poetic madness.” Não leia senhor dos anéis demaaais…

Odin’s hall is easy to recognize: a varg hangs before the western door, an eagle droops above.”

the renunciation oath which was enforced under Boniface among the Saxons and Thuringians, who were ordered to repeat: <I forsake all the Devil’s works and words, and Thunær (Thor) and Woden (Odin) and Saxnôt (the tribal deity of the Saxons) and all the monsters who are their companions.>”

In my town all they do is have their cars and they drive up and down the one main street. They have nothing else to do—it’s a kind of competition for who has the finest car and the loudest stereo. They basically live in their cars. Those who are younger, who don’t have a car—they sit at the side of the road and look at the cars. Their lives are extremely boring, and I can see that some people want more out of existence, they want to have their own personality and expression which makes it impossible to be associated with all those meaningless humans who walk around everywhere.” Isahn

It started up with the whole <anti-LaVey> attitude that was common within the scene, because his form of Satanism is very humane. No one wanted a humane Satanism” “When LaVey says that the simplest housewife can be a Satanist, which it seems like he does in the Satanic Bible, I guess some were terrified that he had views that would take the special thing they had away from them.” “Many people did not laugh; they were very serious all the time. Nothing should be <good>. Everybody was very grim looking. Everyone wanted to be like that, and I guess there are some who are that way still.” “Of course you were affected by the whole atmosphere, that you don’t sit and laugh in this Helvete place, and you have respect for the known figures in the scene, and were careful what to say to Euronymous in the beginning, before you got to know him.”

Normal people assume, <Oh, people into Black Metal must have had a terrible childhood and have been molested. They’re weak and come from terrible backgrounds.> But as far as I’m concerned, many people I know in the scene actually come from good families, non-religious families, and had a great childhood with very nice parents and no pressure at all. Quite wealthy families, really.”

LÁ VEM O SATANISTA: “Sometimes I think it would be great to be more anonymous—it’s a small town that I live in, everyone knows who I am. People look at me even though I don’t dress particularly extremely, just because everybody knows what I am. Also with where I work, people are very skeptical towards me, and sometimes it would be easier if no one knew.”

The essence of Black Metal is Heavy Metal culture, not Satanic philosophy. Just look at our audience. The average Black Metal record buyer is a stereotypical loser: a good-for-nothing who was teased as a child, got bad grades at school, lives on social welfare and seeks compensation for his inferiority complexes and lack of identity by feeling part of an exclusive gang of outcasts uniting against a society which has turned them down. And with Heavy Metal as a cultural and intellectual foundation, these dependents on social altruism proclaim themselves the <elite>! Hah!” E. Lancelot

MANIFESTUM UNIVERSALIS: “The Satanist is an observer of society—to him, the world is like a stage, in relation to which he chooses sometimes to be a spectator, other times a participant, according to his will. He can watch from the outside and laugh, cry, sigh, or applaud depending on the effect the scenery has on his emotions; or he can throw himself into the game for the thrill; but his nature is always that of the watcher, the artist. He is not overly concerned with changing society, for his commitment to humanity is minimal.”

An appropriate example of how such futile aspirations may end is the case of Varg Vikernes: a neo-Viking martyr. A prophet of the ego who paradoxically enough chose to be the Jesus of his ideals, and now must suffer for it behind the walls of spleen. I have much respect for this man’s conviction and courage, but not his sense of reality.” Garm

I think many of them have grown up with the Bible and phone book as the only books in the house.” Simen Midgaard, jornalista free-lancer e ocultista, líder do grupo Ordo Templi Orientis. “The O.T.O. is established in Norway, unlike the Church of Satan, Temple of Set, or other real Satanic organizations.”

if they are going to get rid of Judeo-Christianity, they will have to get rid of Satan as well, as a matter of fact. He is a sort of Trotsky in the revolution”

I’m rather indifferent to the State Church. I’m not indifferent to these terrible small sects who teach their people with fear from the day they are able to talk [essas pulgas de rodoviária!]. I support any revolt, however strong it is, against that kind of Christianity because I think it makes people into neurotics. It should be forbidden by law because they torture their own children.”

O BRASIL TEM O SATANISMO MAIS MADURO (O CARNAVALESCO – A LUBRICIDADE DA CARNE): “Satanism in Norway has become strong because it’s a despotic form of Satanism, but that is also why it’s going to fade so fast—because people are not able to live like that for a very long period of time.” Pål Mathiesen, teólogo cristão

The Satanists say—to put it brutally—that we are animals. The animal culture is the most important one, and we are losing that part of us. This is broad in the culture today, with the “wild women,” etc., this whole thing of going back to nature. Being part of nature instead of spirit or morals is very strong now.”

That struck me when I was talking to Ihsahn, the symbols he was using of 3,000 or 4,000-year-old Eastern religions, and at the same to say that it’s only Norway for me and only the Nordic religion that counts. It’s not rational on that point at all. It doesn’t relate to history as something rational—you just use it.”

I think Vikernes has been analyzing our times and thinking, what can we do to achieve something? But I also think that over the years he will find out that for us to go back to the heathen religion is very, very unrealistic. It’s not going to happen if you look at the religious aspect of it. We’re not going to go back to that kind of religious ritual. That is not going to happen.”

If you are declared a Satanist or Nazi in Norway, then you are that for the rest of your life, there’s not a question about it. You will be condemned for the rest of your life. I hate that aspect of our culture, I really think it’s a bad thing, because if we don’t have an opening for forgiveness it becomes very alien to me.”

I think in society when something like that happens it’s a very good opportunity for the media. They like it because they can start a lasting soap opera with strong characters, and these Satanic groups. The media embraced it to a certain extent, and made it really big in Norway. Of course it was big, but I would say that the media capitalized on it, because it was something extreme, new, and specifically Norwegian. For them to sell newspapers, they treat it as extremely as possible. Very early on the media started to define them as total extremists, the same way they might look upon the neo-Nazi movement. They defined them as that right away; then they had them there and they can look upon them like animals doing strange things, and they can report it like something that is very different from the rest of our society.”

This is something that’s important—individualism in Norway has been held down. That has happened. If you are different in school, or very good for example, or very intelligent, that becomes a problem for you. We don’t accept people with exceptional gifts or anything like that. In England or the US, you have schools for these kind of youngsters, you send them somewhere else, and say, <You are different, go over there>. We don’t have that. Everything is supposed to fit in, in a classroom of 25 or 30 people. If you are too weak or too healthy, or if you’re too good, you’re supposed to shut up. It’s mediocrity.” “We have a very special relationship to nature, a very close one. And during the Christian period this thing with nature has been suppressed—nature is not good, nature is <evil>, so to speak. Norwegians interact with nature and are very closely connected to it, just due to the way the country itself is formed.”

They’ve spent fifty years after the war bringing down Christianity, and for the first time they’re saying now that we need more Christianity in the schools. It shows the times have changed. Maybe we have become conscious to some extent about the Christian culture when people start to burn down our churches—maybe, you can’t rule that out.”

Asbjørn Dyrendal is a Research Fellow at the Department of Cultural Studies at the University in Oslo. He has been primarily researching the new and emergent religions, especially Wicca.”

There you had a lot of young people who wanted to be Satanists. Where could they hear about what you do when you’re a Satanist? They had to get it through the media and Christian sources. They got the myths, and they tried as best as they could, by their rather modest means, to live up to them. You can see that in the early interviews with Varg Vikernes. There were situations where the journalists were trying to see this in light of the stories supplied by Kobbhaug [policial que fantasiava sobre <sacrifícios de bebês>], and where Vikernes played the appropriate role. He was hinting that many people disappear each year, that these might have been killed, and then said that he cannot comment on who was doing the killings. When asked if he has killed anyone: I can’t talk about that. He was building up to get the question of whether he had killed anyone, and then denying it in a manner which implied the opposite.” Dyrendal

Vikernes was very fond of telling people that he read LaVey and Crowley. However, what he has come out with in interviews indicates that he hasn’t understood it all very well.”

WAIT & BLEED: “If you are an adolescent, you are in a period of your life where it is impossible for you to exert influence upon your surroundings. Being able to hate and feel strong can be very liberating. This is much of the same power that lay in other forms of Metal and in Punk.” “It has passed the point where people point at you and laugh, and reached the point where people shy away from you.”

Almost every form of shocking behavior will only make your parents say, <Well, we did that when we were young too>. So, to get a shock effect, you have to go much further in your symbolism. Personally, I think these explanations are a bit simplistic.”

I am of the opinion that most people see Vikernes as a rather pathetic figure—

someone with delusions of grandeur who is only able to function within this self-created image.”

The myth of the outwardly respectable, even upstanding, citizens that go out at night to do terrible things to children has been around for thousands of years and has been levelled at Christians, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, heretics, Freemasons, and lots of other groups. It was then recycled by horror writers, who fictionalized the material. It now seems to be influencing reality again. One account of <ritual abuse> I have read seems to have been lifted directly from Rosemary’s Baby, one of the great horror classics.”

There have only been a handful of Metal groups with direct ties to LaVey’s church over the years (King Diamond being one of the more outspoken), although in recent times this has begun to change. LaVey was himself a musician, specializing in lost or obscure songs of ages past, but he often mentioned a personal distaste for Rock and other modern music in interviews. This might have alienated some musicians—who otherwise exemplify LaVey’s philosophy—from any public allegiance with the Church of Satan. In reality, LaVey understood fully why a genre like Black Metal has appeal for youth, though he may not had have much interest in the cacophony of the music itself.” “The Black Metalers are also quite mistaken if they believe LaVey is merely a humanist. Even a cursory study of LaVey’s actual writings will uncover his unabashed misanthropy and derisive scorn for the follies of humankind.”

A lot of people had tried to give it exposure, as Devil’s advocates—writers like Twain and Nietzsche—but none had codified it as a religion, a belief system.” LaVey

In the case of the Nine Satanic Statements, it took me twenty minutes to write them out. I was listening to Chopin being played in the next room and I was so moved I just wrote them out on a pad of paper lying next to me. The crux of the philosophy of Satanism can be found in the Satanic Rules of the Earth, Pentagonal Revisionism, and the Nine Satanic Sins, of which of course <stupidity> is tantamount, closely followed by <pretentiousness>. Often pretentiousness comes in the form of so-called <independent thinkers> that have a knee-jerk reaction [reação reflexa, instantânea] to any association with us.” Não compreendo o sentido exato.

It sounds like there’s a lot of stupid people in Norway too, like any country.” “We get more mail from Russia than ever, now that the Soviet Union is gone. They’ve been under atheist control for so long and the new religious <freedom> is pushing bullshit they can’t swallow. They almost yearn for the good old days of Soviet atheism…”

A lot of them are kids and they like the name Satan just as they might be attracted to a swastika and the colors red and black.” “Now, if a representative of the Church of Satan had just one entire hour on national TV to say what we want to say, Christianity would be finished.”

The anti-Christian strength of National-Socialist Germany is part of the appeal to Satanists—the drama, the lighting, the choreography with which they moved millions of people. However, the Satanic attitude is that people should be judged by their own merit—in every race there are leaders and followers. Satanists are the <Others>, who will push the pendulum in the direction it needs to go to reset the balance—depending on circumstances, this could be toward fascism or in the opposite direction. Satanism is a very brutal, realistic way of looking at things sometimes.” Barton, boqueteiro (assessor, amante, secretário, sei lá!) oficial de LaVey – verde a cor do nojo

How can someone say I don’t like Rock and Roll? It’s never been defined. There’s so much that’s fallen under that general heading, but I guess it then evolved into what we have now, which I’ve described as being like a linear metronome, i.e., music without music. They’ve just run out of ideas, really.” Continua ouvindo seu Chopin no Inferno, velhote.

kids who don’t know anything besides Rock music can still gain strength and motivation from Black Metal, Death Metal, and so forth.” Enough to found a new “religion”.

…And then you have to get a job! That’s no market place for 2 (or 20, whatever) LaFEIs…

O SEGUNDO VARG É MAIS ESPERTO: “The biggest success story in Norwegian Black Metal—measured in chart positions, magazine coverage, and gaudy magazine posters—is Dimmu Borgir, a band which boasts of six-figure CD sales on the German label Nuclear Blast. Dimmu Borgir were not part of the initial waves of Norwegian Black Metal, and therefore they have neither blood nor soot on their hands. But they have been very adept at capitalizing on the shocking image of their predecessors in the genre, while at the same time carefully distancing themselves from the worst excesses so as not to lose record sales or gigs. A typical example can be seen in the promo pictures of Dimmu Borgir engaging in the mock sacrifice of a virgin —pictures that were produced in versions ranging from <softcore> (less gore) to <hardcore> (very bloody), so that different media could pick the version most suited to their audience. In other words, it seemed as if Dimmu Borgir wanted to be provocative enough to make the kids think they were cool, but not so provocative that the kids couldn’t get their parents to buy them the album for Christmas.”

Two or three years ago it was on the verge of becoming really, really big, and the international press was interested in Black Metal. If there had been more bands like Dimmu Borgir and The Kovenant that could have made it big in the mainstream, Black Metal could have been another example of an underground that stepped up to the major league. But strong forces in the scene suddenly became very introverted and reverted to an older, harder style of Black Metal.” AsbjØrn Slettemark

There is a handful of bands that sell well, about 10,000 to 20,000 copies of each release. But sales figures are hard to confirm, because labels tend to exaggerate; and on the other hand, many of the retailers for Black Metal records don’t register their sales.”

It is my impression that Nuclear Blast realized their stable of Death Metal and Speed Metal artists were starting to lag behind. It seems to me like they picked Dimmu Borgir more or less by chance, because the records that got them the contract weren’t really that special. But Dimmu Borgir were still developing as a band, and they were willing to do the image and magazine poster thing. It wouldn’t be possible to sell a more established band like Mayhem or Darkthrone the same way. I guess Dimmu Borgir have the good old Pop Star ambition, the standing in front of the mirror singing into the toothbrush thing.”

Compared to the multinational record companies, Nuclear Blast Records is like a hot dog stand. But the German label has its home base in the world’s biggest market for heavy metal, and is serious enough to have an American distribution deal with Warner Records. And Nuclear Blast know how to <move units>, in record business parlance. The Marketing Director of Nuclear Blast, Yorck Eysel, says Dimmu Borgir has sold 150,000 copies of their last album and 400,000 discs in all during the time they have been with his label. These numbers are repeated like a mantra by everyone that works with the band, but should be taken with a pinch of salt, as exaggerating sales figures is the oldest trick in the book for vinyl and CD pushers. They know that it is easier to sell you a record that has been in the charts than one which has only been coveted by a few obsessive collectors. Even if the sales figures might be inflated, Dimmu Borgir has sold an impressive amount of records, and Eysel thinks that is due to the band’s merit.”

Interestingly, during Varg Vikernes’s trial a Burzum album was reviewed in the news section of Dagbladet, one of Norway’s most important tabloids; this was at a time when his band was being treated with contempt [even] by the Rock [specialized] press.” “Pop music there generally has been difficult to export and the Metal bands regularly outsell the <commercial> Norwegian bands”

Sigurd Wongraven of Satyricon, who had earlier starred in a Rock Furore exposé about racism in Black Metal, later received the full Rock star treatment in mainstream tabloid Dagbladet for a 2-page article which focused on the fact that Wongraven liked Italian designer clothes. Black Metal had become popular enough, and house-trained enough, for the mainstream press to dispense with the barge pole when touching it, even if the specters of racism and satanism still surfaced often enough to make the bands seem somewhat scary.”

Ketil Sveen, a co-founder of the record label and distributor Voices of Wonder, was one of the first people to sell Norwegian Black Metal records on a bigger scale. He ended his cooperation with Burzum after Varg Vikernes stated that he was a National-Socialist. Today there is a racism clause in the contracts which prospective artists have to sign in order to work with Voices of Wonder.”

We sell Black Metal in 25 countries—there’s not a lot of other music that we get out to so many.” Sveen

In my defense I want to say that none of us suspected Vikernes had really done anything like that. We figured that if he was crazy enough to torch a church he would not be crazy enough to go around bragging about it.” Sveen

Welcome to the world of German Black Metal. Less well known than its Norwegian counterpart, the German scene remains genuinely underground, an obscure exit off the darkened Autobahn of extreme Rock. That changed briefly following the night of April 29, 1993, however, when the members of the Black Metal band [arguably] Absurd followed the example set by Bård Eithun and Varg Vikernes and replaced thought with crime.”

Lianne von Billerbeck & Frank Nordhausen – Satanskinder (Satan’s Children: The murder case of Sandro B., 1994)

Such curiosities were difficult to satisfy until the Wall fell in 1989 and East Germany was opened to the West. At this point previously forbidden or impossible-to-obtain records and videos steadily came within reach. The three 17-year-olds Hendrik Möbus, Sebastian Schauscheill, and Andreas Kirchner began to draw attention to themselves with their Satanic obsessions and penchant for Black Metal. They were antagonized for their interests by many of the other kids in town—both left-wing punks and right-wing skinheads [curiosamente, o som da banda é nazi, sobre guitarras punks estéreis] —but developed a group of admirers among the local schoolgirls.” “At a certain point in 1992, a younger student, a 14-year-old named Sandro, also developed a fascination for the members of this sinister band and their associates.” “Widely disliked due to his irritating manners, he had almost no real friends. He quickly began to adopt the style and interests of the satanists and desperately tried to ingratiate himself into their circle. He would ask to attend band rehearsals and began corresponding with them and the others in the clique [panela] around Absurd. Satanskinder describes a peculiar <letter writing culture> that thrived among all of these youths.” “Heated arguments also took place there between them and members of the Christian Youth Club, which met regularly at the Center as well.”

Together with a young girl named Rita, Sandro began to plot actions against Sebastian and Hendrik, hoping to make a mockery of them in Sondershausen.” “He was also aware of an ongoing affair between Sebastian and an older married woman named Heidegrit Goldhardt, now pregnant with Sebastian’s child.” “Sebastian’s romantic relationship with Heidegrit, who oddly enough was an evangelical Christian schoolteacher, had produced some unexpected results. He had joined in with her pet projects for environmentalism and animal rights, and now spent time writing polemical letters to the newspapers about such issues.” “Absurd no longer rehearsed at the Youth Center, but had moved their equipment to a small cottage built by Hendrik’s father in the nearby woods. Through the guise of a female friend, Juliane, a letter was sent to Sandro in which she confided her hatred of Absurd. She asked Sandro to meet her one evening at the Rondell, a WW1 memorial in the forest above the town, in order to discuss how she could contribute to Sandro’s campaign against the satanists.” “Juliane didn’t appear, but the members of Absurd did instead. Sandro must have been confused, but dismissed any idea that he had been set up. They then somehow convinced him to accompany them elsewhere so that they could all discuss an important matter.” “Suddenly Andreas grabbed an electrical cord and wrapped it around Sandro’s neck. A struggle ensued, Sandro tried to scream for help. At this point, Hendrik is alleged to have pulled a knife and cut Sandro. They tied his hands behind his back. Sandro begged to be let free, promising to never speak about anything that had just happened. They could even have his life savings—500 German Marks (approximately $325). The boys considered the idea of letting him go free in the woods, but feared he would not keep his promise of silence about the abduction, especially now that he had been wounded.” “On May 1st [2 dias depois] the three members of Absurd returned to the scene of the crime and dragged Sandro’s corpse, wrapped in a blanket, to a nearby excavation pit, where they quickly buried him.” “Sebastian related a strange personal anecdote: about 6 months before the murder he heard a voice in his head. It was difficult to understand; he thought it uttered the nonsensical phrase <Küster Maier>. Later he decided it probably must have said <töte Beyer> (Kill Beyer!).” “The story detailed above follows the chronology presented in Satanskinder, although the book embellishes it with endless psychological speculation. The descriptions of the authors are based entirely on comments by disgruntled ex-friends and hangers-on who had interacted with the killers, since the latter refused to speak to them. The picture painted is one of an outsider group of youths whose fantasies got the best of them.”

We used to listen to British and German Punk Rock, British Oi, as well as Thrash Metal (Slayer, Destruction, Sodom, Morbid Angel, Possessed).” Hendrik

mostly we obtained Polish or Hungarian bootlegs, or recorded stuff from the West German radio.” “I guess it was just a question of time before we became aware of splendid bands like Deicide, Beherit, Sarcófago, Bathory, Mayhem, and Darkthrone…”

Before he <moved to the beyond>, Øystein Aarseth wanted to sign Absurd to Deathlike Silence, since our Death from the Forest demo appealed to him quite a bit.”


You can use the terms <Luciferian>, <Promethean>, and <Faustian> to describe one and the same principle: reaching out toward a higher stage of existence and awareness by facing and overcoming the limiting circumstances. That is the trail we are on. However, a <Luciferian will> on its own would fall into hedonism and egomania. For that reason we need heathenism; on the one hand for expression of free will, but also for its channeling toward the greater good. In other words, a person of this sort should not operate only according to self-interest, but rather should serve his ethnic community and be the <light bringer> for it.

What we didn’t know, and only first learned from the court record, was that Sandro was bisexual. With a likelihood bordering on certainty, Sandro had fallen in love with Sebastian. That is also not astonishing, as in those days Sebastian had a certain <sex appeal> among the youths.

So Sandro discovered the relationship between Sebastian and his lover, who was married and 8 years older, while Sebastian was also considered the leader of the local satanists. If this relationship were to become public—which did indeed happen after the arrests—then it would have caused a significant fuss in the small town of Sondershausen, the result being that the girl would have been expelled from her congregation.”


Due to our age of 17, they had to use the youth laws for punishment, which meant a maximum of ten years in detention, no matter if even for mass-murder. At the start of 1994 our trial took place, which was a giant media spectacle. Among other things, the court found us guilty of first degree murder, deprivation of liberty, threat and duress, and bodily injury. (…) Ironically, the section we were sentenced under is one of the few pieces of legislation that remains today from National-Socialist jurisprudence.

Besides the trashy book Satanskinder, at least 3 other books feature our case. However, this book is certainly wrong with its version (although several phrases sound familiar…), due to the fact we refused to cooperate. A TV-film has also been made based on the events in Sondershausen. We have become <Satan murderers> and <Children of Satan> for all time. One could laugh about these stories, which are eternally the same old thing, if only they hadn’t led to such dire consequences. Apart from the media’s self interest for an ongoing story, there are also circles of people that have utilized the media for engaging in personal conflicts with, for example, my parents. It has long since ceased to have anything to do with <discovering the truth> (if that ever had even played a role) or <informing the public>. It has to do with chicanery, with calculated slander. It can further be asserted in my case that I turn more and more into the archetype of the scapegoat. I am the modern Loki, whom the gods punished for their own sins.

Andreas was released a year before Sebastian and I. After getting reacquainted with the scene for a half-year (among other things, he attended a Mayhem reunion concert in Bischofswerda), he retreated completely back into his private life. He broke off all contacts, lives with his girlfriend, and has a good job. Even if I was unhappy about his <departure>, I nevertheless wish him all the best.

Sebastian has totally devoted himself to a folkish world of ideas. He is married and has made a small circle of friends and acquaintances in which he actually plays the same role as he once did in our clique in Sondershausen. In the meantime he has also recorded and released new Absurd material. In addition he sings with Halgadom, a joint project with the band Stahlgewitter who are friends of his. He has only a peripheral contact with the scene, a situation that has probably kept him out of the media’s sights. It is different with me, for I have always had and maintained numerous contacts in the scene. In addition, I worked at Darker Than Black Records, through which I naturally was in a more prominent situation than my two former accomplices. Since then the media has decided to put me in the stocks and clothe me as their new scapegoat. Because I also nurtured an association with nationalistically inclined people, I have been charged severely. Nobody was interested in the facts anymore, the only thing that counted was sensationalism.”

Beginning meagerly with hymns to demons discovered in Satanic horror films, the early demo cassettes of the band are low-fi chunks of adolescent noise, soaked with distortion and offering unintentionally humorous spoken introductions to the songs. Their music is more akin to ’60s garage Punk than some of the well-produced Black Metal of their contemporaries—but what they lacked by way of musical execution they were more than willing to make up for with the real-life execution of the sad figure of Sandro Beyer.” “If there is any clear spiritual mentor behind Absurd’s transformation over the years, it is Varg Vikernes. Varg himself seems to be aware of this, and smiles when talking of recent events inspired by what happened in Norway: <In Germany some churches have burned. And there are the Absurd guys, who have also turned neo-Nazi…>”

The long quotation Hendrik attributes to <Herr Wolf> at the end of the interview is in actuality the words of Adolph Hitler, speaking of the new prototype of hardened, pitiless youth which Nazi Germany would produce.”

WHITEWASHED CARBON COPY: “Such sentiments would make Varg Vikernes proud. Absurd’s own tiny record label, Burznazg, takes its name from a term Varg once planned to use for his own operations, and the most infamous criminal in Norway was surely proud to know of the Tribute to Burzum compilation CD project initiated by Hendrik Möbus and friends.”

Möbus also reveals the existence of a Germanic <Black Circle> which he claims the members of Absurd are also connected to, called Die Teutsche Brüderschaft (Teutonic Brotherhood). The Brüderschaft is mentioned prominently in the dedication list on Absurd’s debut CD.”

In July of 1999 announcements circulated about the release of Absurd’s new 4-song CD entitled Asgardsrei. The CD featured a more aesthetic presentation and an evolved sound, although with much of Absurd’s garage-band ambience still intact. Guests on the release included Graveland’s Rob Darken and well as an <ex-member of the German mainstream band Weissglut>. The end of the advertisement advised interested customers to <ORDER IT NOW before ZOG¹ take YOUR copy>.”

¹ “A sarcastic acronym for Zionist Occupational Government, often employed in radical political circles to describe any of the present-day Western democratic states.”

The public prosecutor had now decided to launch an effort to revoke Hendrik’s parole on the basis of alleged political crimes he had committed since his release from juvenile prison. These consisted of displaying banned political emblems and also giving a <Hitler salute> at a concert.” “Travelling across the USA, Hendrik passed through a string of ill-fated liaisons with racists upon whom he depended for safe-housing, culminating with two of them violently threatening him. Following this incident, he eventually made his way to the state of West Virginia and to the headquarters of William Pierce’s racialist group the National Alliance. All was relatively quiet for a number of weeks until Hendrik was arrested in late August, 2000 by US federal agents acting on an international warrant. The German government had requested to have Hendrik extradited to face his charges of parole violation.

The press treatment of the case was unusual, with Hendrik being elevated from a <Satanic murderer> to a <neo-Nazi fugitive>. He became an international cause célèbre—garnering headlines in US News and World Report, as well as major papers like the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post—and his case raised many serious issues about the way in which modern democratic states handle persons who they deem as threats to democracy itself. Soon after his arrest, Hendrik wrote a letter to US President Bill Clinton and Attorney-General Janet Reno and requested status as a political refugee, stating that if he were extradited back to Germany he would be persecuted on account of his political beliefs.” “A <Free Hendrik Möbus> campaign was also launched on the Internet, and William Pierce produced episodes of his radio program American Dissident Voices in which he addressed the topic of Möbus’s case in detail. In the first major ruling, the U.S. magistrate decided that Hendrik was not eligible for political asylum as he was a <convicted felon> in Germany. Hendrik then attempted to appeal the decision. In their commentaries on the case, both he and William Pierce attempted to make the fundamental issue one of free speech, since the actions which resulted in the original parole revocation were not of a violent nature, but rather <political> misdeeds (which would be perfectly legal according to US laws). Both the US and German governments tried to avoid this thorny issue and confine the legal proceedings to the logistical issues of Hendrik’s parole violation itself, rather than debating the validity of the charges that led to the violation.” A FRAQUEZA CONGÊNITA DO TOTALITARISMO: “His strategy for avoiding extradition created a further paradox: he was forced to seek the mercy of liberal democratic political asylum laws—exactly the sort of laws which a strident German nationalist would vehemently oppose in their own country for anti-immigration reasons.”

Two further court judgments against him, one for public display of the Hitler salute and the other for mocking his victim in published statements, have added more than two years of additional incarceration to the time he will serve in jail. It quickly became clear that Hendrik’s personal goal of collaborating with William Pierce in a venture to promote radical Black Metal through the racial music underground would be impossible to realize from a German prison cell. An equally significant obstacle arose exactly one year later when William Pierce died suddenly from cancer on July 23, 2002.”

The teenager’s room was described as quite ordinary, except for a collection of disturbing compact discs. His neighbors had often noticed sounds blaring from his room, <gnawing music, hard and stressful, which one would hear late at night>—not a bad description of standard Black Metal from an unfamiliar listener.”

Jean-Paul Bourre – Les Profanateurs (The Desecrators): “The fascination surrounding the grave of Jim Morrison of The Doors (buried in Paris’ famous Père La Chaise cemetery) and those of other notable personalities is also inexplicably discussed in one chapter.

They got pissed and destroyed a few graveyards and subsequently they were in prison for it. The hoo-hah died down pretty quickly over it, and that sort of thing isn’t good for a band of our stature anyway because people get the whole ideology wrong straight away. This is why we kind of branched off from the Norwegian thing because as soon as you’ve got the Black Metal tag, people assume you are a fascist and you’re into Devil worship, which can be linked to child abuse.” Dani Filth, a ovelha negra (lúcida)

The band began fairly quickly to distance themselves from their musical peers in Scandinavia by employing evocative aesthetics in the album artwork, and covering more romanticized themes drawn from nineteenth century literature and poetry. They wore the requisite Black Metal corpsepaint, but began to cultivate an atmosphere befitting of Hammer horror films rather than the one-dimensional <evilness> projected by other groups. Later releases Vempire and Dusk and Her Embrace brought the group to a exponentially increasing audience.”

In a strange political twist, an extremist racial group, the National Radical Party, nominated the singer of Metal band Korrozia Metalla (Коррозия Металла) as a mayoral candidate in Moscow. His name is Sergei Troitsky, AKA Spider, and he normally dresses in black T-shirts, jeans, and jackboots. Korrozia Metalla’s most popular song among fans is called Kill the Sunarefa, a slang term for darkly hued minorities from the south.” “Additional titillation regularly comes from naked females dancers who prance [rebolam, sensualizam] and masturbate on stage beside the musicians.”

The name Russia itself, after all, comes from the predominantly Swedish Viking tribe of the Rus who settled the region in the year 852C.E.[?].”

Poland, too, has a rapidly growing Black Metal scene which is closely linked to the rise of extreme right-wing activity there. The most visible band from that country is Graveland, led by the outspoken frontman Robert Fudali, AKA Darken.”

Fans of extreme Metal in this country are often far less intelligent than their Norwegian or European counterparts.” Which means, actually, that they are more intelligent.

SOCIEDADE DO ESPETÁCULO CONSUMADA: “The primary American interests outside of music include drugs and alcohol, neither of which played any significant part in the Norwegian Black Metal milieu. As a result, any antisocial actions are likely to be misdirected at best. The attempts to interrelate them into any kind of grand Satanic conspiracy are fruitless; the main similitude of these crimes lies in their irrational confusion.”

Singer Glen Benton branded an upside-down cross into his forehead years ago, and (to the obvious irritation of groups like Animal Militia) often advocates animal sacrifice in interviews. Allegedly the band’s albums have sold hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide.”

On April 13th, a group of male teenagers commenced a campaign of mayhem and terror with startling similarities in spirit to the Norse eruption in 1992–93. Calling themselves the Lords of Chaos, the cabal of six began their crusade by burning down a supermarket construction trailer. They followed this with the arson of a Baptist church. The terror spree escalated in perversity when the youths spread gasoline around a tropical aviary cage adjacent to a theme restaurant, then ignited the thatched-roof structure and watched the blaze exterminate the entire collection of exotic birds.”

Finnish groups like Beherit and Impaled Nazarene have enjoyed considerable success worldwide, paving the way for many fans to form their own bands and follow in their footsteps. And just as in Norway, segments of the Black Metal subculture also wed themselves to an especially virulent strain of teenaged Satanism. (…) They wear the distinctive Black Metal make-up, which gives cause for some Finns to call them <penguins>, and they flock to music festivals where their favorite bands play.” É o finlandês da picada…

Finnish metal him! Flo Mounier’s victory!

Unlike the scene in Norway, the crimes connected with Black Metal in Finland emanate from the fans, not the prominent artists. Despite its small size, this confused scene has produced one of the grisliest events to arise anywhere out of the Black Metal phenomenon. In one of the most notable cases in Finnish court history, four young Black Metalers murdered a friend in a scenario which featured overtones of Satanic sacrifice, cannibalism, and necrophilia.” “Reporting on the case is further complicated by the fact that the court has implemented a forty-year secrecy act on the entire legal proceedings.”

Jarno Elg’s career as a glue-sniffer and aspiring alcoholic led to psychiatric care at the young age of 11. He tried hashish the following year. By the time he was 16, young Jarno was drinking daily and devouring books on Satanism. This diet of Kilju [bebida etílica baseada na fermentação da laranja, com gusto e cheiro horríveis, típica da Finlândia], psychoactive chemicals, and teenaged Satanism was bound to go awry.”

The rebellious impulse in Metal therefore has yet to synthesize the nihilism with the fascism, and since fascism is a synthesis itself, there’s no reason this cannot eventually be achieved.” Kerry Bolton

The ‘60s music genres were thoroughly phony in their radicalism. Unlike Black Metal (and for that matter Oi, and much Industrial) the ‘60s musicians had no fundamental difference in outlook to the establishment they were supposedly rebelling against.”

ILLUMINATI: “The possibility of being bought off by the music business would most likely be by way of insisting on a return to the specifically anti-Christian themes at the expense of the heathen resurgence, since I’m sure many of the executives of the music industry can co-exist well enough and even utilize anti-Christianity, including Satanism, especially if it is of the nature of yet one more superficial American commodity.”

According to the police, the Einsatzgruppe was plotting direct action against prominent Norwegian politicians, bishops, and public figures. The group’s plans included a scheme to break Varg Vikernes out of jail by force. The Einsatzgruppe had all the trappings of a paramilitary unit: bulletproof vests, steel helmets, cartridge belts, and ski masks. In addition, the police found a list of 12 firearms and a map for a hiding place at a mountain. However, the only weapons the police confiscated right away were some sawed-off shotguns and dynamite with blasting caps. The police also found a war chest with 100,000 Norwegian Kroner (close to $20,000). This had been supplied by Lene Bore, Varg Vikernes’s mother. She was also arrested and charged with financing an illegal group. Bore confessed, but claimed she had no idea these people were <right-wing extremists>. She expressed concerns about the treatment her son received in jail, and claimed that he was subjected to violence by his fellow inmates. This was dismissed as unfounded by the prison director. However, it is true that Varg’s jaw had been broken in an altercation with another inmate in late 1996.” “Curiously, Bore could not be prosecuted under Norwegian law—conspiracy to break the law is not illegal if it is done to help a close family member.” “The group was, according to some sources, aiming to escape with the freed Vikernes to Africa—hardly the hideout of choice for passionate racists.”

The stigma associated with Nazism is much stronger in Norway than it is in neighboring Sweden or the US, where most of the Norwegian Nazis draw their inspiration from. This is largely due to the fact that Norway was occupied by Nazi Germany from 1940 to 1945.”

The Mayor of Brumunddal was subjected to what one would call low-level harassment. No physical attacks, no real serious vandalism, but an endless stream of mail-order merchandise, pizzas and ambulances ordered in his name. Pornographic photo montages were also posted along the route his children walked to school. Two of the activists from Brumunddal defecated on the steps of the town hall to express their discontent with municipal policy. They thought this was really smart, so they did it once more, and then were caught.”

Gaston Bachelard – Psychoanalysis of Fire

Fire stirs the spirit of human artistry; it is the spark of the will-to-create. It expresses the polarity of emotions, as Bachelard notes, and represents both the passionate higher ideals, as well as the hot and consuming tempers of irrationality.”

Most people have lost interaction with real fire; the once universal, mystical experience of blazing night fires is gone from their lives. Stoking the flames of resentment or dissension is frowned upon in a world which depends on the smooth exchange of services. Those possessed of unrestrained spirit are silenced, or ordered to fit in. Their tendencies must be stifled. Extreme emotions are shunned; those who act on them become outcasts. Mainstream culture produces a bulging sea of quaint diversions, the ostensible rewards for good behavior. The music and art made available to the masses has the consistency of soft, damp pulp—hardly a conducive medium for fire.”

It’s not good for us to laugh. We have nothing to laugh at in this laughable society.” Varguxo

The wild hunt appeared in many legends—a ghostly flock of dark, martial shapes riding through the night on their horses through the woods, lead by Odin, the one-eyed ruler of the dead, or sometimes by a female rider… a perception that in Christian times was transposed onto the Archangel Michael and his hosts.”

The Austrian folklorist Otto Höfler was able to prove in his books Kultische Geheimbünde der Germanen and Verwandlungskulte (Transformation Cults) that the wild hunt was not at all a mythological interpretation of storms, thunder, or flocks of birds—as many researchers thought—but a union of mythology and folklore, of myth and reality which was of great importance in the Nordic mystery cults.” “Höfler stressed that in the Germanic Weltanschauung, like that of most pre-Christian cultures, there was no sharp distinction between this world and the one beyond—the borders were fluid. The folklore of the cult groups was often very brutal. With or without drugs the members felt a furor teutonicus which Höfler called a <decidedly terroristic ecstasy> with various excesses”

Beer was was their special goal—kegs were stolen or secretly emptied, sometimes to be refilled with water or horse urine, or they themselves urinated back into the barrels. Often horses were also stolen; they became the property of the Oskorei. In the morning the farmers found their horses completely exhausted, or they had to search for them because the apocalyptic riders had set them free somewhere.”

Hoping for a rich harvest, one accepted the demands and offenses of the Oskorei as part of the bargain. Similar perceptions existed in the Alps when the Perchten were given nourishment as they went from house to house, or they were allowed to plunder the pantry.” “Gradually, however, many farmers were no longer willing to accept the outrages of the Oskorei. The cultic background of the thefts and pranks fell into oblivion, becoming superstition. The sympathy of the populace disappeared—now the disguised young men were no longer considered embodiments of the dead or fertility demons, but rather trouble-makers and evil-doers.” “The louder the drums, bells, cries, rattles, and whips, the more effective the noise magic became.”

They dress as ghostly as possible, speaking with a falsetto voice, reaching ecstasy by dancing, music and noise. … Their clothes should be as nightmarish as possible. They attempted to dress as ugly as they were able. They had terrible eyes, with big white rings or painted up with coal. (Johannessen, Norwegisches Burschenbrauchtum. Kult und Saga. Wien, 1967 (dissertation), pp. 13, 95.)”

The disguised members of the Oskorei altered their voices and gave themselves false names—they represented demons and had to remain unknown. In Black Metal as well only a few musicians use their real names; many take pseudonyms from Nordic history and mythology and in the meantime it is possible to find in Black Metal culture almost all deities of the Eddas.”

IMAGEM 6. O Grito, de Munch, pintor norueguês expressionista.

But Black Metal is above all heathen noise, electronically enhanced. The music is powerful, violent, dark and grim; a demonic sonic art with several elements in common with the Norwegian expressionist painter Edvard Munch, whose famous work The Scream would fit well on a record cover. The eternal recurrence of certain leitmotifs, the dark blazing atmosphere, the obscure, viscous sonic landscape of many songs—often lasting more than ten minutes— have at times an almost psychedelic effect. In the heaviness and darkness of certain compositions it is possible to realize some subliminal melodies only after listening to these works several times. Black Metal is a werewolf culture, a werewolf romanticism.”

<A hard heart was placed in my breast by Wotan.> (Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil, aph. 260)” Muito bacana descontextualizar aforismos!

The first song I heard by Burzum was Det Som Engang Var in the CD Hvis lyset tar oss. Even now this song remains for me the most beautiful and powerful work of Burzum; its symphonic sonic violence is impressive over and over again. It is a 14-minute-long composition full of grim, blazing beauty—dark and fateful. The uniquely hair-raising, screaming-at-the-heavens vocal of Varg Vikernes turns the piece into an expressionistic shriek-opera, the words of which are probably incomprehensible even for Norwegians. The song was composed in the spring of 1992. Another work which fascinates me very much is Tomhet (Emptiness), on the same CD. This song too has an extraordinary length; from my point of view it is an exceptional soundtrack to the Norwegian landscape—that is, Norway as I imagine it, a country ruled by silence and storm, solitude and natural violence.”

I am no racist because I do not hate other races. I am no Nazi either, but I am a fascist. I love my race, my culture, and myself. I am a follower of Odin, god of war and death. He is also the god of wisdom, magic, and poetry. Those are the things I am searching for. Burzum exists only for Odin, the cyclopian enemy of the Kristian god. I do not consider my ideas to be extreme at all. That which stupid people call evil is for me the actual reason to survive.”

Ele não consegue dormir, sua mulher não pára de ziguezaguear ruidosamente pela casa, o galo canta no meio da madrugada, o cachorro se torna agitado. O homem se ergue da cama e, no corredor, percebe o besouro, ainda agonizando. Ele o pisoteia de uma vez por todas, terminando o serviço, no que o lar recai no silêncio outra vez.

“Se gerações de camponeses jogaram a vida fora com trabalho duro, certamente devemos reconhecer, outrossim, que eles não gastaram mais tempo em labuta do que em momentos de preguiça.

Meu avô parou de trabalhar quando ele morreu: era um camponês. Meu pai parou bem antes do seu tempo: funcionário público, aposentadoria precoce (ele pagou por isso na forma de uma hipocondria mortal, mas sem dúvida isso foi como tinha de ser). Eu nunca comecei a trabalhar, tendo usufruído bem cedo de uma situação marginal e sabática: a de professor universitário. Quanto às crianças, elas não tiveram filhos. É então que a seqüência prossegue até o estágio supremo da impassibilidade.

Essa inatividade é rural na essência. É baseada num senso de mérito e equilíbrio <naturais>. Você nunca deve fazer demais. É um princípio de discrição e respeito pela equivalência entre trabalho e terra: o camponês dá, mas cabe à terra e aos deuses dar o restante – a maior parte. Um princípio de respeito pelo que não vem do trabalho e nunca virá.

Esse princípio traz consigo uma certa inclinação para acreditar no destino. A indolência é uma estratégia fatal, e o fatalismo uma estratégia de indolência. É dessa correlação que derivo uma visão de mundo que é ao mesmo tempo extremista e preguiçosa. Eu não vou mudar nesse aspecto, não importa como caminhem as coisas. Detesto a agitação buliçosa dos meus concidadãos, detesto a iniciativa, responsabilidade social, ambição, competição. Esses valores são exógenos, urbanos, coisas eficientes e pretensiosas. São qualidades industriais, enquanto que a indolência é uma energia natural.”

OBS: Eu sou o pai e o avô de Baudrillard num só: funcionário público que não se aposentará. Semi-homem rural. Camponês de terno. Meu pai concentrou ambivalentemente as duas vidas, não ao mesmo tempo, intercaladas, mas nos extremos: o funcionário dedicado e de chefia, ideal burocrático, décadas a fio, e depois, ainda antes da velhice, o “homem fazendeiro”, em ócio idílico, o sonho-mor da meia-idade industrial fatigada. Overdose decantada. Meu filho (?!) poderá ser qualquer coisa, não há nada que nos diga se estamos marchando para frente ou para trás, em que pese eu ter renegado a universidade com todas as forças… Ou quem sabe estamos estagnados no Zeitgeist da França da Guerra Fria, a da juventude baudrillardiana: ainda não tivemos nosso Maio de 68.

(…) Isso é basicamente a rebelião das energias, a conspiração de uma vontade secreta contra todas as escolhas e cálculos existenciais. Logo depois você tem de recair em qualquer velha forma supersticiosa de tomada de decisão. (…) (e a liberdade é um corpo heterogêneo no universo metafísico), na animadversão ou qualquer loucura do gênero – o equivalente mental da rejeição biológica.”

O sofrimento é sempre um sofrimento relativo à indiferença patética do mundo quanto a nós” “A ironia é uma arma da astúcia, inevitavelmente maliciosa, inevitavelmente tornando as coisas piores, mas nos confortando frente à crueza da doença.” Esse comentário me lembra o P**** M******. O bom compadecido.


The invisible aircraft. So impossible to locate that it can no longer even locate itself and loses track of its own position (three of the planes crashed during testing).” “como é bem sabido, ao brincar de pique-esconde você nunca deve ficar invisível demais, ou os outros vão se esquecer de você.”

Hoje os grevistas são utilizadores-de-greves. O mesmo para greves de consumo.” Talvez seja bom deixar de comprar o suco de uva provisoriamente; quem sabe um suco de laranja seja um bom refresco, uma agradável novidade… Vamos curtir uma praia, mas com moderação. Não diga sim ao sindicato, diga ‘mais ou menos’.

Firmes convicções só podem ser derrotadas pela imbecilidade mais desenfreada.” D***, o eterno “último a falar”, irrefletido no espelho.


PRÓLOGO DO FIM: O presidente, no acme da impopularidade indissolúvel, que dança para se conservar no cargo até o fim concreto do mandato (mais abstrato do que nunca, a essa altura), contra todas as probabilidades, é o verdadeiro esfomeado do bandejão. Não contente com a montanha de arroz, feijão, salada e carne de segunda que conseguiu deglutir, quase sem ter de pagar por isso, ainda lambe o prato de forma impecável, recusando qualquer ajuda, repelindo o mau-olhado dos garçons ou responsáveis por lavar a louça suja, sugando qualquer grão ou partícula sobrevivente. Com efeito, é ridículo o espetáculo e inócuo o banquete, não há calorias ou sinal de nutrição real, e há um constrangimento difícil de disfarçar nas mesas em torno, mas o que importa é a auto-satisfação, que se explodam as testemunhas, o tribunal da consciência: talvez a côdea de pão, o restolho de purê ou pirão, realmente valham a pena, não importa quão bem-vestido seja o lambedor, quão desprezível e caricato seja o ganho. Ele simplesmente não pode evitar…

ADÁGIO-RESUMO: De tanto simular a própria morte, ninguém irá ao enterro verdadeiro da democracia, passaram a ignorar a velha e sua tosse que já não sabem se é qualquer espasmo doentio ou fabricado. Na verdade, é bem possível que isso (a última missa) tenha sido num passado remoto. Nossas memórias andam mesmo pra lá de desreguladas. A dama era tão velha que talvez já tivesse uma filha idosa, e confundimos as duas. Uma já morreu, a outra é só uma cópia. Especulamos, somente, porque nenhum repórter daria mesmo esse furo.

Toda a arte da política hoje pode ser resumida assim: chicotear a indiferença popular.”

A painter exactly repaints a particular Picasso, a Matisse or a Velázquez. He signs this work, which is not a copy, finds a gallery to exhibit it and people to buy it. He may even merely sign the photo of a famous work. Why is it not possible to republish Sein und Zeit [Ser e Tempo de Heidegger] or La Chartreuse de Parme [O Monastério de Parma, de Stendhal] under my own name? Why is what is possible in painting, not possible in literature (and in music and architecture)?”

Escrever numa pressa enorme, quase até o ponto de haver terminado antes de haver começado, produz uma leve ansiedade – a impressão de ter concluído rápido demais, de que você está se destruindo com impaciência. Uma ansiedade ligada ao eclipse do Outro e, ao mesmo tempo, ao eclipse do conteúdo referencial. Um efeito de eletrocussão, de recuo – igual o de uma arma. Tudo sobre o que se escreve está desaparecendo – essa é a única razão convincente para escrever. Jenseits des eigenen Schattens [O Acolá da própria Sombra].”


Escrever as coisas muito rápido para não deixar a linha de raciocínio em aberto, aguardando uma chamada excepcional, um insight, <travado>, <dependente>, <responsável>, <lógico demais>… Melhor um auto-circuito fechado. Retrô alimentado. Alienado. Bifê refogado. Patógeno alienígena. Vírus adaptativo. Micróbio super-resistente. Super-ei. Superei a mim mesmo. A mímica. A mimese. Alívio nas costas sempre tensas. Explicar, esmiuçar, abordar, antecipar, sair do lugar? Convencer? Em plena era dos crentelhos? A-ham, espelhos… Convencidos os Narcisos… Atitude inicial, iniciativa, resposta anterior à provocação, é sempre pior que uma queda, uma precipitação! Jamais prova nada além do outro, mesmo que só para si prove os próprios pontos de vista, diante de D. Polícia da interpolação. Pop ululação das massas. Nelson Gaga. Ruptura. Tontura. Acupuntura. Suturas e remédios. Não é um cura, é só um médium.

Deveríamos nos admirar não de que haja tanto caos e violência, mas de que haja tão pouco e tudo funcione tão bem. Dados o nível de agressividade de cada motorista, as fragilidades dos equipamentos e a correria do tráfego, é um milagre que milhares não morram todo santo dia, é um milagre que não nos matemos uns aos outros senão raramente e que só uma pequena porção dessas possibilidades desastrosas atinjam a fruição. Quando se vê o imenso caos burocrático, o número de decisões absurdas, a fraude universal e o desperdício de nossas virtudes cívicas, a única reação natural é maravilhar-se diante do milagre diário dessa máquina que, de um jeito ou de outro, continua a funcionar, puxando consigo em sua órbita todo o detrito que ela mesma gera. Afora quebradeiras episódicas (não mais comuns, definitivamente, que tremores de terra), é como se uma mão invisível gerenciasse toda essa bagunça, normalizando a anomalia. Esse é talvez o mesmo milagre que nos previne de sucumbir, dia a dia, à idéia da morte ou à melancolia suicida.”

TRADUÇÃO LIVRE, ASPECTOS AUTORAIS: “Uma economia da poeira e da sujeira é uma aventura em si mesma e uma economia das aranhas, além de um desafio à natureza, é incorrer num risco ainda maior. Mas tentar uma economia do livro, abrir bibliotecas, organizando o inorganizável, permutando desordens que jamais se repetirão (Heráclito?) é realmente absurdo, deve trazer até má sorte. É tão pretensioso quanto a idéia de reorganizar num índice alfabético os neurônios do seu cérebro! Além do mais, a biblioteca é o topo da cadeia alimentar, acumula as 3 funções descritas, ao invés de ser apenas uma crematística dos livros: todo livro é um depósito de ácaros, todo livro é um lar em potencial de aracnídeos…”

A interdisciplinaridade vai matar os conceitos.

Num sistema tão perfeito quanto este, basta que te tirem o café-da-manhã para que te sintas imprevisível.”

se tivéssemos depositado todas as nossas energias para consumar a revolução de 1789, fato é que não teria sobrado nenhuma energia para celebrá-la.” “A energia usada para mentir não pode ser usada para falar a verdade. São duas energias totalmente distintas. Talvez que ambas as vertentes jamais se cruzem em algumas individualidades peculiares. Isso explicaria vermos alguns sujeitos que são perfeitamente sinceros e perfeitamente hipócritas, sem a menor imagem de contradição. § Toda transfusão de energias heterogêneas leva a sérias desordens (como um erro numa transfusão de sangue). Querer comungar energia sexual e energia mental soa tão aberrante quanto pedir que células cerebrais executem funções do fígado. Há uma energia específica para palavras e uma energia própria para imagens. Nem sempre apenas cópias se anulam, mas até figuras opostas! Canibalismo somático.” “Em suma, a energia que se dissipa comemorando uma revolução nada tem a ver com a energia-matriz que a gerou anteriormente.” “a energia das eleições é desespero; ainda que multiplicada ao infinito, não transmuta numa só esperança ou fato político” “Também é mentira que hoje em dia o social <perde> uma vez que temos muitas expensas militares.” Só haveria entropia verdadeira no cenário mais improvável da coincidência de infinitas entropias infinitesimais…

é a precessão da resposta sobre o enigma da (a pergunta sobre a) existência que torna o mundo indecifrável.” “A Filosofia moderna se jacta, afetando auto-suficiência, de haver formulado inúmeras questões decisivas para as quais não há respostas, mas na verdade o que temos de aceitar de uma vez é que não há, nunca houve [doente é ser o que?], pergunta alguma, caso em que nossa responsabilidade se torna total, já que SOMOS a resposta – e o enigma permanece, assim, insolúvel e pleno — eu diria, unilateral.”

Me pedem para escrever ficção. Ficção? É o que eu já faço. Meus personagens são um número de hipóteses malucas que maltratam a realidade de várias formas e cada um deles eu mato no fim, quando já cumpriram seu papel.” No meu livro agathachristieano, o bandido não é descoberto no final.

Cicciolina é uma espécie de personificação do amor. Na verdade ela dissemina o amor sexual pelo corpo todo, isto é, desviriliza o órgão genital; irônico para alguém que é a encarnação de algo abstrato! Diz Baudrillard: é o sonho consumado, a meta, de Reich. “O último avatar do desejo se torna membro do parlamento – fantástico! [O que vem a seguir, a Playboy da mulher do Cunha?!] Em suas aparições televisivas pré-rafaelíticas [pré-renascentistas], ela parecia a única a estar viva, a única natural! Tendo exorcizado toda a modéstia, extravasado toda a imodéstia, ela finalmente se tornou, em sua doçura espectral, sedutora.”

Curiosamente, todos os adjetivos conceituais que definem os fenômenos extremos da contemporaneidade têm uma forma plural anômica no Francês: fatals, fractals, banals, virals. Já os antigos valores possuem plurais tradicionais: égaux, moraux, finaux, globaux.” Desse ponto de vista, o Português é a média com o universo, o bajulador perfeito; e o Inglês, a nadificação ultimada da língua e do homem. Não declino-para-nada, soul-pára-mor.Te

Hegemony of the commentary, the gloss, the quotation, the reference. But absolute superiority of the ellipsis, the fragment, the quip, the riddle, the aphorism.”

On me (us): “Deconstructing is a weak form of thought, the inverse gloss to constructive structuralism.” “it exhausts itself in passing the wor(l)d th(r)ough the sieve [peneira] of the text, going over and over the text and the exege(ne)sis with so many inverted < commas >, italics, ([pa](ren[t)h]ese[(s)] and so much etymology that there is literally no text left.” I’m bored

O dicionário é a minha faca (que corta e liga as coisas).

Deconstructing is as interminable as psychoanalysis, in which it finds a fitting partner.”


By his own admission, Descartes only thought for two to three minutes a day. The rest of the time, he went riding, he lived. What are we to make of these modern thinkers, then, who think for fourteen hours a day? Just as Barthes said of sexuality that in Japan it was to be found in sex and nowhere else, whereas in the USA it was anywhere but in sex”

P. 17: “Todo ser humano julgado inferior por um outro automaticamente se torna superior a esse outro. É o que acontece em relações homem-mulher: a mulher presumida inferior imediatamente se torna superior. O oposto não é verdadeiro: quando uma mulher vê um homem como um ser superior, ela não se torna seu inferior mas está, ao invés, meramente em postura de sedução. E se um homem vê uma mulher como um ser superior, ele não se torna seu inferior: ele descansa meramente em postura de admirador.

A mulher atenta a essas coisas as nega veementemente, alegando que a tal superioridade feminina é uma fantasia masculina – mas dado que a suposta inferioridade da mulher é da mesma ordem, quiçá haja apenas fantasias masculinas? Nesse ponto, a mulher está sob risco de ceder à tentação de acreditar em si mesma como superior ao homem (o que é diferente de sê-lo). É então que ela se torna imediatamente inferior à própria feminilidade, i.e. igual, com efeito, ao homem quando ele, como é usual hoje, se torna inferior à própria essência masculina.”

investimos toda nossa liberdade no louco desejo de tirar o máximo de nós mesmos.”

Loucura horizontal, a nossa loucura (…) a loucura do autismo – em oposição à loucura <vertical> de anteontem, a loucura psíquica, a loucura transcendente da esquizofrenia, da alienação, da inexorável transparência do Outro. Hoje em dia tudo o que vemos são as monstruosas variantes da identidade: a do isofrênico, sem sombra, transcedência, Outro ou imagem, a do autista que, como tinha de ser, devorou seu próprio duplo e absorveu seu irmão gêmeo (ser um gêmeo é, por sinal, uma forma de autismo <a dois>). Loucura identitária, ipsomaníaca, isofrênica. Nossos monstros são todos autistas maníacos. Como produtos de uma combinação quimérica (mesmo quando é uma genética), desprovidos da heterogeneidade hereditária, afligidos com a esterilidade hereditária, eles não têm outro destino senão caçar-se desesperadamente uma <Outridade> por intermédio da eliminação de todos os Outros (Frankenstein – mas esse é também o problema do racismo). Computadores são autistas, máquinas celibatárias: a fonte de seu sofrimento e a causa de sua vingança é a natureza recalcitrante e tautológica de sua própria linguagem.

Onde quer que observemos, constatamos loucura horizontal se opondo à vertical.”

Todas essas coisas – ser um gêmeo, incesto e, até um certo ponto, homossexualidade e narcisismo – são mais profundas e potentes que a sexualidade e a única fuga em potencial é a morte.”

Ao princípio da separação de Segalen, da eterna incompreensibilidade, devemos agregar o princípio da eterna inseparabilidade em física de partículas. Essa simultaneidade de dois princípios opostos tem de ser pensada por inteiro até o fim. Não se pode estar mais separado e mais inseparável que o eu e a vida.” Obstinado em cristalizar-se. O banhista do rio heraclitiano quer agarrar-se às margens, e de fato o consegue por alguns poucos segundos, mas a correnteza é muito forte, e lá vai ele de novo, atabalhoado e engolindo água… Este eu que sou agora, é a Pura Morte, até virar apenas pegadas, e depois tudo menos isso, nem ao menos isso… Obstinado em morrer, mas ainda não é a sua hora. Ha-ha, nem é sua nem é hora. Nem o “mas”, muitos menos o “é”, talvez então o NÃO, talvez… a… não, de novo não… Rio Heraclitiano hoje é Zeus-peniano. Translúcido eletrochoque não-venenoso.

Um dos prazeres de viajar é mergulhar nos lugares em que tantos outros estão obrigados a viver e depois emergir incólume, cheio de um prazer malicioso de abandoná-los a seus próprios destinos. Mesmo sua felicidade local parece estar subordinada a uma resignação secreta. Ou, ao menos, nunca pode ser equiparada à liberdade de partir.

Ainda assim a beleza de seus traços contraria qualquer senso de ciúmes ou concupiscência. Nesse nível, a diferença sexual desafia a imaginação, a beleza é como um signo astrológico.”

Já foi dito que a probabilidade de um macaco digitar o Hamlet é infinitesimal. Mas a probabilidade não é só baixa; é zero. E menor que zero, já que, se houvesse uma oportunidade do macaco conseguir, significaria que Hamlet seria só uma probabilidade em bilhões, o que é estúpido. É o sonho dos cretinos da estatística que, exaurindo as probabilidades, você possa terminar escrevendo o Hamlet. Mas isso é impensável: o Hamlet não é da ordem da probabilidade. Ele é tanto radicalmente improvável quanto supremamente necessário. Probabilidade minúscula, necessidade máxima. O mundo é o que é e isso é tudo. A probabilidade de que ele pudesse ser diferente ou que o Hamlet eventualmente nunca tivesse existido é a única chance que resta a uns sujeitos de segunda classe de reinventá-lo em seus computadores. Ou, pensando bem, a única chance em aberto para os macacos. (Nada tenho contra os macacos; isso é uma metáfora.)”

Outra Catástrofe jaz a nossa espera, a da superprodução cultural. Somos impelidos a acreditar que no mercado cultural a demanda vai exceder a oferta ainda por um bom tempo (então todos os estoques vão zerar). Mas podemos mensurar desde já um apreciável excesso de oferta sobre demanda na economia cultural do cidadão médio. Mesmo hoje, a criatividade desenfreada excede nossa capacidade de absorção. O indivíduo mal tem tempo para consumir os próprios produtos culturais, quanto mais o dos outros. O público faz o seu melhor: corre para as exibições, festivais, mas se aproxima o limite. Eles vivem repetindo que o público quer ainda mais e que as pessoas nunca terão cultura demais. Mas é uma ilusão de perspectiva colossal. E de duas uma: ou a cultura é meramente um rito ou idioma, e neste caso nunca foi produzida aquém ou além do necessário, ou passou a se comportar como o mercado, com suas edições limitadas, concorrência desleal e especulação, e só se pode esperar os mesmos efeitos que na ruína de 1929 na esfera da produção material: o fim das assunções <naturais> da economia, que depois das imagens de hot capital (bolhas inflacionárias) e circulação exponencial, tornou-se especulativo. Assim como tivemos a Quinta-Feira Negra [que ironia…] de Wall Street, teremos também um Black Sabbath da cultura.”

Lentidão, falta de cultura, o desejo fremente de cortar relações. De se livrar inclusive da família, dos objetos, da memória, de tudo – de sofrer uma purificação total. Ab-reação[*] violenta à origem, desgosto pela continuidade. Camponês nômade. Ainda é a Temporada no Inferno.”


A má fé para com a história é total: Heidegger, Hitler, os campos, o Terror. Isso tudo é insultado e repudiado, mas totalmente lavado e glorificado, não obstante, num conta-gotas midiático. Pelos ditames da moralidade, nada disso deveria ter existido, não mais do que o ato homicida de Caim ou o extermínio dos selvagens. Mas teríamos de ter inventado tudo isso da mesma forma – senão, do que é que falaríamos?”

Toda nossa semiótica é meramente caridade fora de lugar com seres tão-somente inumanos, essências canibalísticas, com sua hipocrisia semântica (a constante aparência de ter significado).”

Chega de piedade pelos signos. (…) Signos são tão arcaicos quanto as pedras, mas mais sutilmente indiferentes”

No escrever, o momento mais encantador é o da condensação, elipse, rarefação. Construir núcleos cada vez mais densos em torno dos quais a luz se desorienta, e o pensar também”

Fruir o signo em vez de usá-lo é a perversão dos seres humanos. Porque a única fruição é de Deus e o único uso é o uso do signo (Santo Agostinho).”

É muito fácil se adaptar à vida australiana ou americana porque elas são o grau zero do estilo de vida. Mas o grau zero é também o da exterminação de todos os outros, e a tentação do fácil é a tentação da morte.”

Um cego vai virar dono de uma cadeia de canais de TV na Espanha (depois de se livrar do Presidente do Instituto para os Deficientes Visuais ao empurrá-lo poço do elevador abaixo).

A luta entre os incapacitados e os cegos pelo direito de vender bilhetes de loteria é apenas o prelúdio de uma luta pelo poder. Um dia, ele vai estar todo nas mãos dos incapazes. Comandar os outros, ou ser comandado por eles, pressupõe um tipo de mutilação. Então, como nos computadores e eletrônicos, aqueles incapazes de nascença – aqueles com vantagens hereditárias – serão cada vez mais capazes (com o perdão do trocadilho).

As hierarquias do futuro serão hierarquias da falta. Os intelectuais, que estiveram até hoje bem-situados na corrida, perderão os privilégios, já que seu handicap é apenas simbólico e não se compara a um bom handicap físico, seja anatômico seja cerebral, que é mais visível, mais efetivo, mais eficiente. Não estamos mais na idade da metáfora.

(…) Políticos e intelectuais serão sucedidos por mutantes de verdade, esses sem um gene ou cromossomo ou com extras (quando o vírus da AIDS tiver se tornado parte da herança genética da humanidade), ou mesmo por mutantes artificiais que não terão reprodução sexual – (…) sucessores aos eunucos que infestavam os haréns da antiguidade e os coros da Renascença, e aos hemofílicos impotentes que comandavam impérios, etc.

Isso não é pejorativo. É apenas a expressão da lei que diz que só o indivíduo a quem falta algo é capaz de preencher o vácuo de poder.”

Toda sociedade deve se escolher um inimigo, mas ela não deve tentar exterminá-lo. Esse foi o erro fatal do fascismo e do Terror revolucionário. Mas é o mesmo erro cometido pelo terror democrático, que agora elimina o Outro com ainda mais segurança que o holocausto. Se não hipostasiamos mais nenhuma raça diretamente, damos a cada indivíduo o direito de escolher o que é melhor para si, inclusive na reprodução e perpetuação do análogo – e o indivíduo ainda é racista. Aliás, é o único racista.”

Quanto mais a imagem evolui rumo à alta-definição, mais a identidade segue rumo à baixa-definição. Quanto mais a sexualidade segue rumo à baixa-definição, mais evoluímos rumo à alta-definição de todas as técnicas corporais.

Alta-definição é a definição-média de pornográfica. Todas as formas de alta-definição são indexadas ao genital (e aos genitais) no pornô. Sempre há algo obsceno na alta-definição, pois, mesmo no campo cultural – aliás, particularmente nesse campo.”

Não há prova mais clara de que o poder do Ocidente está ancorado na aflição do resto do mundo inteiro, e de que o espetáculo dessa aflição é sua glória suprema, do que a inauguração, no telhado do Arco da Defesa, na França, com um bufete oferecido pela Fundação dos Direitos do Homem, de uma exibição das melhores fotos da miséria.”

Yellowstone, talvez a primeira e maior reserva natural do mundo, nos EUA, demonstra como incêndios naturais podem ser benéficos a várias espécies de plantas e animais.

Os aztecas acreditavam que apenas pelo derramamento de sangue humano a energia solar podia ser regenerada. Podemos mesmo acreditar que eles erraram tanto assim em suas crenças?”

Ficar sem signo é tão grave quanto perder a própria sombra.”

O fim da História, o fim do real, o fim dos dinossauros, o fim do ozônio, a desaparição da mulher – um fim ao remorso, o objeto perdido está atrás de nós! Há uma última vez pra tudo – a última vez já foi!”

Um dia veremos o reemergir do circuito paralelo do álcool.”

AIDS é a África, drogas a América do Sul, terrorismo o Islã, dívida o Terceiro Mundo. Quebras econômicas e vírus eletrônicos são, mais ou menos, os únicos sucessos do Ocidente.”

O pós-moderno é o primeiro conduíte verdadeiramente universal e conceitual, como jeans ou Coca-Cola. Tem as mesmas virtudes em Vancouver ou Zanzibar; Chicago ou Budapeste. É uma fornicação verbal global.”

Há duas espécies animais de intelectuais: aqueles que preferem carne fresca e aqueles que preferem carniça. Aqueles que preferem destroçar conceitos vivos e aqueles que preferem os restos. Eles não possuem nada em comum, exceto que são ambos mamíferos.”

Não há sentido nenhum em questionar a realidade quando mais de dez estão presentes. Toda audiência de mais de 10 se torna automaticamente defensiva e reage violentamente a qualquer desafio ao real e verdades manifestas. Nenhuma asserção radical pode ser feita para mais de 10 pessoas.”

São Paulo – indiferença e loucura

Como o céu: luminoso e fumacento – o tráfego: sonhodoramente violento

Uma passagem estridente sob a varredura das avenidas

Talvez a predileção brasileira pelo desfile de carnes, particularmente a das nádegas, seja mais da ordem do comestível do que do sexual. Esse era o pedaço do corpo humano mais delicioso para uma sociedade canibal que acabou permanecendo delicioso aos olhos. E esse olho talvez seja mais canibal do que luxurioso.”

As estátuas com olhos de ágata e cabelo humano imputrescível nas igrejas barrocas de Minas Gerais.”

Ao sul do Rio Grande, assim que se cruza a fronteira dos Estados Unidos, a maldição começa. A América do Sul inteira continua a viver o momento da imolação dos impérios que colapsaram à chegada dos espanhóis e portugueses e que continuarão colapsando para sempre.”

a cena de um desespero absoluto da conquista, que passou a correr nas veias de uma população inteira (…), incluindo a raça branca, que parece aceitar que não há esperança para esse continente e ele está condenado ao escândalo da exterminação. Lar das reservas planetárias da clorofila e cocaína, do oxigênio e da corrupção total dos recursos e das mentes.”

“Ninguém tem qualquer esperança real de sair desse cenário. Talvez nunca tenha havido desejo algum de libertação, de se arrancar desse primitivismo, exceto dentro de um estrato político-intelectual reduzido e epifenomênico. E mesmo seu comportamento é problemático. Tudo é planejado em termos de normas modernas (planos, programas, organização), mas, no momento da ação, há uma perda de motivação quanto aos resultados. Como se tivessem provado o que deveria ser feito, mas em seguida não tivessem mais vontade de insistir. As coisas vão bem mal, é claro, mas não pense que isso os torna infelizes, já que esse contratempo apenas lhes confirma a impossibilidade de escapar do atoleiro.

É o mesmo com as relações interpessoais: generosidade à flor da pele, uma afeição tocante e, ao mesmo tempo, apatia, despreocupação – talvez tão artificial quanto as demonstrações calorosas? Mas não: a questão é que nada deve ser dado como certo, para que o jogo continue. A relação com o tempo é a mesmíssima que a com o dinheiro e as demais: encontros, reuniões, o volume das trocas é deliberadamente todo deixado no ar. Todos são felizes com esse estado de permanente instabilidade monetária e temporal. É um jogo, é um destino. Todos os planos econômicos são condenados ao fracasso aqui com tanta segurança que o que vem a acontecer não é nem mesmo uma falha; é um espetáculo, e, como tal, compete com o futebol, o samba, os cultos, o jogo do bicho. Esse é o Brasil real, como Muniz Sodré fala, não o Brasil simulado, aquele que querem que ande no mesmo ritmo das tecno-democracias ocidentais. Como é realmente, o país está condenado, sem dúvida, e com auto-contentamento, a perpetuar o sacrifício, a imolação, a canibalização ritual de toda a sua riqueza. E por que não?”

o curto-circuito entre um mundo ritualístico e primitivo da lentidão, em que o ciclo se completa espontaneamente, e um mundo moderno da velocidade e aceleração. O resultado é incoerente: eles avançam, tomam a dianteira com determinação, e logo em seguida recaem, fatalmente, no mesmo ciclo de lentidão e são mais uma vez contaminados pelo vírus letárgico da indolência. Se eles não se mostram comprometidos com a consequência de seus atos, não é por falta de determinação ou energia, mas porque parte dessa energia permanece presa ao primeiro ciclo, ao qual ainda estão apegados. Daí a severidade com que os brasileiros lidam com as falhas em seus projetos ou programas. Nada é destinado a ir direto ao seu alvo, não se espera de ninguém que leve a operação até sua conclusão. O final tem de ser deixado ao acaso, ao diabo, à fatalidade. Reivindicar controlar essa parte do fogo, essa partilha maldita, assumir responsabilidade por tudo isso, seria altamente absurdo e sacrílego. É o ciclo que comanda, e o ciclo é como a curvatura da terra. E a indolência, o improviso é apenas a aceitação tácita no coração das pessoas desse elemento enigmático que frustra todo projeto e ordena que as chances de dar certo sejam meramente figurativas.”

Crises são para as camadas mais altas do capitalismo, que rapinam todos os lucros derivados em escala mundial. Catástrofes são para a classe média, que vê suas razões para viver desaparecerem. Os outros (80%) estão tão abaixo do nível da crise que nem mesmo a experimentam. Eles sobrevivem a tudo, se puderem, é claro, instintivamente. Desprovidos até de uma existência econômica, é mais fácil para eles achar um equilíbrio catastrófico simbólico.”

A crise econômica brasileira é tão ininteligível quanto a especulação wallstreetiana, exceto em sua obscura tentativa de demonstrar a absurdidade do sistema econômico. É um tipo de jogo coletivo, uma aposta alta na hipótese de que uma sociedade pode sobreviver – e por muito espaço de tempo, sem se desesperar de si – na desordem econômica mais absoluta, pelo menos enquanto não dispõe de estruturas racionais ou rígidas. Isso tudo é correlato ao caso dos italianos e o poder político: eles apostam na hipótese de que uma sociedade pode prosperar, insolentemente, sob a ausência de um Estado e de um governo, desde que se conserve sardônica e teatral o suficiente. Itália e Brasil são prefigurações do futuro. Pois todas as sociedades estão condenadas a um dia viver além do político e do econômico.”


In Brasilia, the abstraction of the city offers at least one certainty: at least those who are mad enough to cross its urban expressways – endangering their lives in the process – are human beings. The human race is nowhere so incongruous as in these extra-terrestrial surroundings, with the exception of these tiny touching creatures who go on foot. Otherwise, human beings take refuge around Brasilia in the numerous cults of the satellite towns, in an atmosphere of initiatory kitsch the more flamboyant and syncretic for being so opposed to the sidereal geometry of the mother-city.” “Em Brasília, a abstração da cidade oferece pelo menos uma certeza: ao menos os que forem loucos o suficiente para atravessar suas vias expressas – arriscando suas vidas no processo – são seres humanos. A raça humana não é em lugar nenhum tão incongruente quanto nesses domínios extra-terrestres, com a exceção dessas criaturazinhas tão tocantes que passeiam a pé. Mas, em última hipótese, os seres humanos da capital, para se sentirem mais humanos, se refugiam de quando em quando num dos numerosos cultos das cidades-satélites, numa atmosfera de kitsch iniciático mais exibicionista e sincrética justamente por ser tão contrastante com a geometria sideral da cidade-mãe.”

Os ricos de Copacabana são mantidos confinados pelos seus próprios escravos. Escravos que, pacificamente, silenciosamente, devoram o espaço-tempo de seus mestres. Mestres que vedam o acesso, mesmo em sonho, aos seus apartamentos luxuosos, mestres que detêm as chaves para as próprias almas dos escravos; exatamente como os escravos detêm as chaves dos elevadores pessoais de seus mestres.”

A mais requintada catástrofe, maior ainda que o naufrágio do Titanic, ocorreu na noite de 31 de dezembro de 1899, a primeira noite do século. O transatlântico saído de Manaos [grafia de Baudrillard], transbordando em riquezas ligadas à indústria da borracha, velejou rio Amazonas acima, cheio de aristocratas e famosos do mundo inteiro, para a mais luxuosa das festas internacionais. Esses membros da alta sociedade beberam e dançaram a noite toda ao ritmo das bandas, enquanto o transatlântico afundava vagarosamente e se perdia no labirinto da floresta. Eles conseguiram se dirigir para uma das margens secas de um dos inúmeros tentáculos do rio, mas não foram achados até ser tarde demais, quando todos já tinham morrido de fome, sede e calor. Dessa forma foi que uma parte da élite do mundo acabou oferecida como sacrifício humano para a entrada do novo século. Manus deusManaus – consonância maléfica.

Não só eles desapareceram, mas até mesmo essa história desapareceu dos arquivos. Eu nunca fui capaz de re-apurá-la na fonte eu mesmo. Será que eu alucinei com o tédio ou o calor? Não, eu tenho certeza que a li como um item genuíno de informação. Por que ela não está na memória de todo mundo, como a tragédia do Titanic?”


Acho bom ter feito as pazes com esse livro, uma vez que a expulsão de objetos hostis é extremamente perigosa. É como um extravio num estado de pecado mortal. Ao invés de seguir seu caminho e entrar em órbita, o objeto força sua passagem de volta nas nebulosas profundezas do corpo. Exatamente o título inicial: <A vida, movendo-se por si mesma, do que está morto> [Memórias Refrigeradas]. E a morte do livro deve, de fato, ser vista como a vingança do mundo físico (e dos outros) contra o simbólico que o(s) nega – um ato sacrifical que é parte do livro em si mesmo. É por isso que você tem que se livrar dele e repassá-lo para outras pessoas, porque, como com qualquer bem simbólico, o mal e a transparência do mal não são coisas de que você deva desfrutar sozinho. É a regra do sacrifício.”

Toda mulher é única. Ela nunca é, portanto, ideal, porque a mulher ideal é um duplo.

Duas mulheres sempre se fundem numa só, combinadas numa eterna duplicidade.

Duas mulheres reais, se se combinam não só na imaginação, podem constituir uma mulher ideal.”

Mas, lá no fundo, duas mulheres não são o bastante. O homem moderno (Der Philosoph, Le Philosophe, Three Women in Love, 1989; Drowning by Numbers, Afogando em Números, 1989) está condenado à fantasia das três mulheres. Com 3 mulheres (ou mais), não há ciúmes nem predileção; uma progressão ritual [encadeamento] é criada, uma transferência de qualidades de uma a outra, uma nada sabendo da outra. Nenhuma quebra: a fagulha de uma nos olhos das outras, os ciúmes de uma no gozo das outras, a transparência de cada uma nas nuances das demais.”

Masculino e feminino estão a anos-luz de distância. Ninguém nem mesmo sabe se persiste uma relação entre os dois. É como bolas de bilhar que se chocam em velocidades diferentes, uma tocando a outra antes que a outra a toque: a não-polaridade dos sexos significa que eles não mais compartilham o mesmo espaço. Cada sexo não mais é, exatamente, o outro do outro sexo. Destarte, não há mais, exatamente, diferenças de sexo.”

RELAÇÃO ASSIMÉTRICA NO MUNDO DO AMOR: “O homem nunca significou a morte para a mulher” “Para haver diferença, as coisas têm de ser comparáveis. Apaixonar-se pelas próprias diferenças – o modelo do sexismo.”

Assim como as defesas do corpo precisam ser neutralizadas antes de um transplante cardíaco, a imunidade da mente precisa ser desligada antes de ela ser inicializada no mundo da inteligência artificial (computadores).

Os intelectuais estão condenados ao desaparecimento quando a inteligência artificial estourar no mercado, igual quando os heróis do cinema mudo desapareceram com a ascensão do cinema falado. Somos todos Buster Keatons.”

Caminhar entre tantos rostos de cujos nomes sua memória se esqueceu é como estar cego. A obliteração de nomes e rostos na memória é como o escurecimento da luz do dia para os olhos.” “Uma luta-livre entre cegos. O árbitro é cego também. Bem como os expectadores. E todo o evento acontece no escuro (essa última condição é supérflua).”

Comunicar? Comunicar? Só meios comunicam.”

Eu sou uma sobremesa para os lobos



I am mice

Yes we are


I’m in half



Means to an end

Don’t you make no amends

Ships sink

Full of friends

Frenzy’s freak

Machiavelli does not justify my existence

Tense existence

Past tense

Present perfect

Future inexistent

Destined to doom

I’m centered in the edges and thresholds of the world

Where there is this eye that beholds

The eye of the hurricane

Storming sorrow towards my vanquished soul

Há um quê de orgulhoso no ato de evitar se repetir. Você está se iludindo se pensa que os outros prestaram atenção cuidadosa no que você disse, o que é muitas vezes o caso. Na outra mão, há qualquer coisa de uma modéstia exagerada nisso de repetir a mesma história dez vezes: porque isso é agir como se os outros não estivessem ouvindo, o que também não é sempre verdade.”

O próprio Deus não acredita em Si, de acordo com a tradição. Fazê-lo seria uma fraqueza. Também seria uma fraqueza acreditar que temos uma alma ou um desejo. Deixemos essa fraqueza aos outros, como Deus deixa as crenças para os mortais.”


Histéricos [nós os ansiosos, instáveis por natureza] são esquivos, porque, quando generosos de espírito e demonstrando admiração, obtêm uma forma de reter o controle sobre seus favores. Ou eles são generosos com seus favores, mas mantêm uma distância mental. Esse equilíbrio é uma forma de sedução. Por outro lado, aqueles que se doam completamente são insuportáveis. São o tipo das mulheres harmoniosas, insignificantes e em paz consigo mesmas que qualquer um gostaria de trancar nalgum lugar e fazer sofrer.


Devotas, quase casadas, bonitas, na moda, honradas, sociáveis, boas oradoras, boas até demais, com defeito no disfarce de manipuladoras. Risadeiras. Sem senso do tempo apropriado para intervir. Têm consciência (ou chegam perto de achar) que suas vidas são espécies de modelos para o resíduo da gentalha. Inspirações medianas (“qualquer um gostaria de estar no meu lugar”), mas falta-lhes: consciência da própria repelência, o sentido do asco da homogeneidade, o sentimento de grandeza do mundo, do quão pouco seu papel representa, mesmo no sentido quantitativo da coisa, que é sempre onde podem levar vantagem. De certa forma são, sim, invejáveis, pois poucos conseguem possuir fé no futuro. Quem disse que animais não podem ter consciência do estado da felicidade?! Qualquer Outro também invasivo (espelho de suas personalidades, portanto idêntico na forma, porém discordante no conteúdo) torna-se O Inimigo. Senti na pele. Tanto as vantagens de estar alinhado com seu “perímetro do consenso” quanto o tormento de estar “do lado de lá” desses muros. Tirar a prova da panela: todo grupo de fêmeas coscuvilheiras tem a sua vedete masculina, normalmente um afeminado considerado “fiel”, que faz a ponte para salvar as aparências, tornar o hermetismo sectário do grupo algo mais “diplomático” e “palatável” (M., C. e J. possuem E.).

Which will win out in the long term, enforced idleness or frenzied activism?”

Nossa alta sociedade cultivada só se empanturra de Beckett, Cioran, Artaud [Baudrillard seria o quarto destes cavaleiros do Apocalipse?] e todas essas formas consagradas de cinismo e niilismo para se evadir melhor de qualquer análise das formas atuais de desespero. Eles denunciam com a maior energia político-moral toda presente instância do niilismo, da niilidade dos valores, enquanto <culturalmente> saboreiam as formas heróicas porém anacrônicas de niilismo e o inumano. Eles enaltecem a divisão maldita, todavia mantêm a água benta ao alcance.” Entende-se o que Nietzsche queria dizer com: eu não sou nenhum santo.
