Although mainstream now, the black metal music scene was a small but violent underground movement in the mid 90’s. With the inception of Venom and Bathory, the second wave of black metal hailed from Norway and was the result of a lot controversy. Erik Danielsson is the creative mind behind Watain, a Swedish black metal band reaping success not only among fans but also in the public eye.

Who is the man behind the corpse paint? What is black metal? Can music be considered a religion? Magic, fire and death.
