On a night like this

Just for the commenter who said there is no metal on the blog any more, here is a Kylie Minogue song. I hope those attention whores lovely people who intend picketing Ronnie James Dio’s funeral enjoy this video as much as I did.

Gaahl’s Tr00 Life Adventures Week 10, and Peter Beste

Time for my own bad Photoshop. Truly, truly awful work here. This is the tenth and last (so far) edition of Gaahl’s Tr00 Life Adventures. Click the thumbnail to see the full size image.

This one contains a few in-jokes (e.g. “many Norwegian countries”) from the Mike Portnoy forum community that was the [...]

Gaahl’s Tr00 Life Adventures Week 5

In this week’s adventure, Gaahl goes shopping. No, it’s not your eyes, the background image is fuzzy.

A couple of things may need explaining. According to his mother, Gaahl is vegetarian (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Also, Gorgoroth was his band. They have now split up and ownership of the name [...]
