16 years ago today, Oystein Aarseth, aka Euronymous from Mayhem, was brutally stabbed to death by Varg Vikernes, aka Count Grishnackh from Burzum.

I'm a fan of Varg's music, but I find him to be completely detestable as a person. It also really depresses me to think what a talented guitarist and song-writer Euronymous was, how great Mayhem were and how all that was taken away for the sake of Vikernes' ego.

In memory of Euronymous and the True Norwegian Mayhem.

The grave of Euronymous.
